One of the things I’ve been trying to do is get into a department store and try on a variety of wedding guest dresses for those of you who are attending nuptials of loved ones in the coming weeks…..
Well, I haven’t done that so thank goodness for online shopping. I have rounded up a few options that I personally would wear and love so I hope they work for you too! The great thing about shopping these particular stores online is that there are no-hassle returns and you can order a few different sizes, try them on in the comfort of your own home and then send them back without breaking a sweat….which in this heatwave we’ve been experiencing lately is a sheer miracle.
ON TO THE DRESSES….
I own this dress in red. I ordered it in blue and red and had no idea where to wear it, but I loved it so much that I kept it because I was sure that an occasion would come up where I would need it. It’s a bit sexier, so I would say wear this for an evening affair. But it’s stunning on and so forgiving because of the drape of the material. Plus, it comes in a variety of colors and is under $32. I love it in this dark green shade for fall; you could pair it with taupe or nude heels and a rich burgundy lip color and be all set!
I read the description and saw “summer floral” but this is definitely a fall floral dress. The material and style of this dress would be perfect for a fall-afternoon affair. I would pair this with ankle booties or a stacked heel sandal. I love the way this dress has 3/4 length sleeves, great for all temps! The sizing says to go up one to two sizes, so I would order both and try them on for you to know for sure which one works best. For under $28, you can’t go wrong!
When I look at any item of clothing, I think of as many women and their figures and shapes as I possibly can. A wrap dress is the most flattering dress on a woman because it accentuates her shape and can either compliment or enhance what she already has! When I saw this dress and the reviews (and the PRICE -Under $18- WHATTTT?) I was like “How have I not ordered this before?” I love the wine shade for a fall affair. Dress it up with a pair of stunning statement earrings and gold heels or dress it down with simple jewelry and leather shooties!
I tried this on in store and LOVED it. In fact, every woman who has tried this dress on has loved it. It is perfect for any affair, but I envision this being the perfect fall wedding guest dress. I would probably wear an up-do with statement earrings and metallic pumps. Right now, this dress is $79.99 with an extra 40% off (and an additional 10% off with code: FLASH).
The second that I saw this online, I texted the manager of my local LOFT store and said “Please put this on hold for me!” Because I loved it. I loved the print, the style, and just how feminine and perfect it was for a fall-transition. It’s also lined and lightweight! I love how easily you can dress this up or down – perfect for an afternoon wedding guest. Can you imagine it paired with a cute felt hat and booties? So boho-chic! And again, at 40% off with an additional 10% off (with code FLASH), you are not going to regret it!
I saw this dress online and wanted it for myself, but absolutely have no where to wear it. Haha – so wear it for me! I love everything about this dress and can honestly imagine it would be perfect for someone who is pregnant or post-partum! The placement of the pleats is so flattering!
I hope this guide gives you some great suggestions for what to wear to those fun events coming up! I will continue adding to this guide as I see things that I like, so check back!
