Styling a Dressy Casual Look for a September Wedding
It really set in for me today that when we return from this weekend, we'll be a few days in September! In my usual shop browsing, I recently came across this pretty mulberry wine-colored dress from Loft, which struck me as a lovely color and pretty little dress to wear to dressy casual or daytime weddings next month.
It's a soft and pretty neutral for fall, and I can imagine this color and shape would look great on so many body types and skin tones. It's also one of those simple little dresses that have the tendency to become a wardrobe staple.
For accessories, I found that this color looks great with a deeper cranberry color or warm fall neutrals like this. To make it look special enough for a wedding but still daytime appropriate, I brought in some subtle sparkle in the beaded earrings, the matte brushed golden shoes, and a matte bronze or pewter clutch. This color works wonderfully with gold, pewter, and other neutrals, but it's pretty and muted alternative to pink or purple or red. if you want to dress it up, even more, Loft has this great beaded belt ( shown in the shop section below.)
