Four Fall Wedding Looks We Lifted from Celebrities
BY: Halley Lawrence | Oct 9, 2014
Autumn is the second most popular time to tie the knot, but the dropping temperatures present a conundrum for guests accustomed to June events: how do you dress warmly and fashionably? Never fear, we’ve rounded up four celebrity-approved styles that are perfect for wearing to a fall wedding. The Trend: The Dressy Jacket Who Wore It: Model Cara Delevingne stayed both warm and chic at her sister’s London wedding by wearing an elegant jacket that complemented her outfit rather than detracting from it. Snag the Look: Instead of encasing yourself in a dour puffy down coat—and obscuring the fancy dress underneath!—wear a jacket that will ritz up your outfit. A luxuriously soft faux mink coat or the streamlined silhouette of this color-block coat can enhance your overall look. The Trend: The Chic Pantsuit Who Wore It: Amal Alamuddin made a splash by wearing an ivory pantsuit to officially wed George Clooney at their civil ceremony in Venice. But brides aren’t the only ones ones exploring the trend—fashion designer Rachel Roy stunned when she wore a tuxedo-influenced style to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s nuptials in Florence. Snag the Look: Ask the bride about her desired color palette, then find a fall-friendly pantsuit in your own style. Remember that a good fit is essential for this look, so don’t be afraid of visiting the tailor. The Trend: The Halter Neckline Who Wore It: Emily Blunt drew praise from fashion bloggers across the world when she wore a sky-blue halter gown from Emilio Pucci’s Resort 2015 collection to the Clooney-Alamuddin wedding. Snag the Look: Get a refined look while staying warm in the longer lengths of this tiered chiffon halter gown or a halter-neck maxi dress. The Trend: Elegant Separates Who Wore It: Socialite and reality-TV star Olivia Palermo bucked tradition by tying the knot in a cream-colored cashmere sweater, white shorts, and a tulle and- satin skirt. Snag the Look: The concept of Palermo’s ensemble works just as well for a wedding guest as it did for the bride, so long as you switch up the colors. Try a cozy cashmere sweater paired with an tulle or organza midi skirt in a hue like mint or raspberry. Top photo courtesy of Tracy Petersen Shop Goods for accessories for finish off your look:
