Due to the falling leaves, earthy tones and comfortably cool weather, autumn has become increasingly popular for weddings. And since it’s cold one minute, then warm the next – thrown in with the expectation to look your best – dressing for the occasion can often seem a mean feat. But there are plenty of ways to pull out all the stops and fit the season. In fact, here at Mela HQ, we believe this is the best time of year to really show off your edge. Take the outfits below at the best example of how to do just this.
Invest in the Dress
While it’s a cliché, dressing in the colours of the season is the easiest way to get your wedding look spot on. With a fusion of oranges, mustards and a sophisticated navy, this midi dress allows you to show off your autumnal flair, while keeping the look classic with long sleeves. Plus, it can be restyled to wear to work and on weekends.
Once and Floral
A romantic occasion deserves a romantic dress, so make sure this midi dress makes its debut. Perfect for clinging onto the summer shades, it comes with a plush digital floral print and a flattering tie. Upscale your look with a pair of stilettos and don’t forget a faux-fur jacket.
Looking to modernise your look? This sleeveless jumpsuit covers all bases. It’s on-trend, super-soft and easily dressed up, making it ideal for formal occasions and engagement parties. Pair it with a black blazer and a matching clutch, and choose statement jewellery to really make an impact.
This rich-toned maxi dress is perfect for adding to your wedding wish list. Sweet sleeve ties offer a feminine feel, with the lightweight fabric allowing you to layer as you see fit. Complete your look with a pair of (comfortable) block heels and a Teddy Bear coat.
Make a Statement
If you thought that polka-dots are off the agenda, think again. And if you’re heading to a ceremony and the party, get an outfit that can do both. With a demure spotted print and dramatic arms, this jumpsuit is suitable for the day, night and into the next morning.
