Yes, it’s October, but wedding season isn’t over. Our stylists have been asked what to wear to a November wedding, what is casual chic, what is cocktail casual, and many other questions so we thought we’d clear the air.
What is casual chic?
Casual chic is a newer term thrown out to wedding guests that means to wear some of your finer items but not a full-on cocktail dress. This is a hybrid between dressed up and dressed down so a blouse, dark wash jeans, and heels would suffice. You could also pull out a casual jumpsuit, shift dress, or romper to fit the theme. The main goal here is to look put together, but not professional or formal.
What is cocktail casual?
Cocktail casual is the step under black-tie. It’s the gray area that allows you to wear that one dress that you’ve been questioning if it’s “too dressy” or not. This theme is perfect for your LBD, so be sure to keep dresses above the knee. And lastly, be sure to pair your LBD with stand-out jewelry and your fancy shoes to make a statement.
What to wear to a fall/winter wedding?
Our stylist gets this question a lot now that the season has shifted into colder weather. First things first, a wrap or pashmina will save your life. You can get away with wearing a short sleeved garment as long as you have a wrap to shield you from the cold. Midi longsleeved sweater dresses are always in and are perfect for November weddings if you want to go the dress route. Ideally, a long-sleeved jumpsuit would be perfect for this time of year because they are more formal and will keep you warm. The alternative to wearing a jumpsuit to stay warm would be adding a fur jacket. As far as shoes you can wear over the knee boots with a heel to stay stylish and warm if you still want to wear a dress.
