Just because the weather is changing and you can no longer guarantee weeks of hot sunshine, you don’t need to clear your diary and settle down for endless nights in front of the TV. Fall is the precursor to the Christmas Party Season, so you can expect to be invited to plenty of events during September, October and November. Besides, Halloween and Thanksgiving are slap bang in the middle of this busy period, and if they are not a great opportunity to throw a party, what is?
Here is a quick guide to the best styles for fall party dresses and accessories, so check out what’s on offer from www.teranicouture.com and other reputable fashion websites, and make a fashion investment.
It may not be Christmas yet, but you don’t need to wear something all staid and boring. Sparkly dresses decorated with fringe and sequins are all the rage right now, so for inspiration, check out the fall collections from Fendi and Dolce & Gabbanna.
Off-the-shoulder dresses are very 1980s, but this iconic style has made a big comeback this year. Look for off-the-shoulder dresses with lots of ruffles and bling. Short black cocktail dresses in this style look fabulous, especially when worn with spikey caged heels. Team your dress with a statement choker a-la Kim Kardashian and you will have created a fantastic look.
Metallic fabrics are not trendy right now, but metallic detailing is. Look for party dresses with a metallic twist in the form of silver detailing. Metal links holding sections of dress together are very popular with celebrities, especially if you combine a crop top and slinky skirt. Metal is quite an edgy look, so perfect for fashionistas who like to cause a stir at parties.
Velvet is the fabric of the season. Top designers have fallen in love with velvet all over again and there are plenty of gorgeous velvet dresses to choose from. Velvet is warm and soft to the touch, which makes it a great choice of fabric for a fall party. H&M and Giorgio Armani produced some great pieces for their fall collections, so look there for inspiration.
Capes may seem a bit retro, but many of the top designers used capes or capelets to spice up their fall collections. When done right, a small cape or capelet can be seriously chic. They are also a smart choice for a fall party as the weather can be very unpredictable and you may be caught out by a sudden fall in temperature.
Real fur is not acceptable, but a faux fur cross body stole is a wonderfully stylish fall fashion choice this year. Drape your fur stole asymmetrically across your body. It is a clever styling trick employed by top designers. You can drape a fur stole over an evening cocktail dress for added drama.
Choose any of the above outfits and add some embellished gloves. This will give you the perfect fall outfit for parties and formal events.
