Autumn weddings offer the wonderful excuse to up the glam factor. No matter if you’re a best friend or the mother of the bride, go for luxurious fabrics, darker shades and appropriate accessories. But, is there a way to look stylish and fabulous without going bankrupt? Yes, there is! Read our tips on obtaining elegant look on a budget!
#1 Go Black – If you’re in doubt, choose black! No matter if your choosing long cheap evening dress or little black dress, it’s a color that never looks bad, even in the harshest of lights. It will never go out of style, too. Make sure to accessorize it with bold jewelry pieces and lovely footwear.
#2 Fabrics are Important – Check the label for the material when shopping for any clothing item, including the dress you’ll wear on someone’s wedding. Instead of synthetic fabrics, pick up something made of cotton, silk or linen. These fabrics look super-classy, elegant and luxurious and can always be worn.
#3 Be Picky with Accessories – An over-sized watch, unique pair of stud earrings or a lovely silk scarf – whatever you choose, make sure you added at least one striking item to your wedding-guest outfit.
#4 Take Care of Your Footwear – If you already have good (and expensive) shoes, you only need to maintain them on a regular basis. If you don’t want to spend too much time cleaning your footwear, opt for patent leather since they are rather easy to maintain. However, you should wipe them down each time you wear them. Purchasing good shoes is important, but it’s not enough. If the cracks and scratches take away the shine of your lovely elegant shoes, your whole outfit is going to look shabby.
#5 Its Majesty: The Bra – If you pair your gorgeous dress with the wrong bra, you’ll end up looking quite unimpressive. Check the mirror for weird lines and, if necessary, change the bra. Investing in a good bra is sometimes more important than investing in a good dress. Think about it!
