Just when you were recovering from all those weddings you went to this summer, fall wedding season arrived. But before your stress level mounts with each invitation that arrivals in the mail, there's at least one thing you can get under control before it's too late: your wedding guest wardrobe.
The easiest way to find a dress to wear to a wedding, if that's the look you're going for, is to pay attention to the current trends. It won't do you much good to have your heart set on a certain style before you know which trends are dictating the dress trends that season. For fall, whether you like it or not, one of the biggest styles on the scene is the '80s revival. We're talking neon, tinsel, puffed shoulders, and animal prints galore. Naturally, many of the new dress arrivals are at least subtly influenced by the '80s, so it might make your search easier to focus on that.
The good news is that not all '80s-inspired pieces are flashy. We found plenty of dresses that offer just the right amount of glitz and glamour to wear to a fall wedding without being over the top (and subsequently distracting from the happy couple). You can put money on the fact that you'll see this trend all over the dance floor at fall weddings to come. Keep scrolling to shop the best '80s-inspired dresses to wear to fall weddings.
