Back to Basics: What To Wear To A Fall or Winter Wedding, Formal Event Or A Christmas Party

Shop My Outfit:

Happy Monday! Now that we’re deep into the fall and getting closer to the winter season, I wanted to share the perfect dress for a fall or winter wedding, formal event or a Christmas party on this month’s Back to Basics series. I have been eyeing this gorgeous Chicwish embroidered maxi dress for a while and finally ordered it for Christmas pictures. It’s perfect for fall and winter because of the color and length. It’s also seriously so comfortable and flattering. I know it can be hard to find a unique dress for a formal event without spending an arm and a leg. This dress is currently 30% off and is under $70.  It looks way more expensive than the full price too. The dress runs true to size, so just make sure to pay attention to the measurements.

I know it will go great for fall/winter weddings, formal events and will be beautiful for formal holiday parties. This dress is more of a wine color vs. bright red, so it’s perfect if you’re worried about being too bright at a wedding. It also comes in a beautiful dark blue color as well. I cannot wait to wear this dress all holiday season, and it would also  be beautiful around Valentine’s Day. Jake and I plan to take some holiday pictures soon and I definitely plan to wear this dress.

Determining how dressy your outfit for an event should be is often very hard; if you need tips on deciphering the dress code for an event, make sure to check out one of my most popular posts to date here.

    Oh my gosh! That really is the perfect dress! It is so beautiful, Courtney – and what a fantastic price. I would have thought it was way more expensive.
