Here's What Everyone Will Be Wearing to Fall Weddings, According to an Expert

Contrary to popular belief, spring and summer are not the only seasons for weddings. So, while you may have mastered the art of dressing for those nuptials on the beach or in the countryside, there are other seasons to plan for. If you've got a few fall weddings creeping up on your calendar, we're here to help you get dressed for the occasion. To start you off, we asked Caroline Maguire, the fashion director of Shopbop, for her expertise on the dress trends to wear to all your fall weddings.

"Knits are not only going to be huge for ready-to-wear this fall but for cocktail events as well," she shares. Another way to feel incredibly chic for your next wedding? Jewel tones—Maguire says they’re "the perfect way to make a dress look and feel luxe." Finally, don't be afraid to have a little fun with what you're wearing. "Rather than sticking to a solid-colored dress, opt for a dress with prints or patterns."

Now, you can be sure that you'll be one of the best dressed guests at the ceremony. Below, we've shared some of our favorite dresses based on these key trends for your next few weddings.
