Although wedding season in Canada is typically during the summer months, the romance of nuptials often continues into the early autumn weeks of September. If you are invited to a wedding this month, you may be wondering what to wear. After all, it is a little too late in the season for flirty crochet frocks, yet too early for heavy velvets that signify the arrival of winter. Luckily, brocade dresses paired with punchy accessories can help to bring your overall ensemble to life. We’ve curated a few outfit suggestions to help you shine as a guest at any upcoming weddings on your social calendar.
XSCAPE Halter Neck Brocade Fit and Flare Party Dress, $272: We are liking this red and black brocade dress, which features a defined waistline, flared voluminous hem and strappy halter style. Meanwhile, this rich red floral pattern brings autumnal colour to this dress, while the high neckline is perfectly demure for any family wedding functions.
Le Château Suede-Like Pointy Toe Pump, $70: Try accessorizing your brocade number with a pair of pumps which pick up on the vibrant colour in the dress. These faux suede heels are completed with almond toes, with a cherry red shade that flatters your colour scheme.
Lilly Pulitzer Bamboo Clutch, $225: For a finishing touch, this quirky metallic bamboo-adorned evening bag can work well against the floral-patterned dress and pointed pumps. While you may not want to wear a velvety dress just yet, the perfect velvet clutch can help you usher in autumn vibes. This deep red velvet bag could be the push you need into Fall 2018 accessory fashion.
