One of the best parts about being in NoVA is that there is always an event or festival going on. Very rarely is there never something to do. Your calendar is probably already booked for the next few months with holiday parties to regular dinner dates. This might leave you wondering what you’re going to wear to each occasion. Don’t worry though, if you keep reading you’ll see outfit ideas for NoVA events you might be planning to attend this season.
Weddings are such a fun and joyous occasion, but having to decide what to wear to a fall wedding can sometimes be tricky. Fall is a great time to dress a little more glamorous or try something different such as pants. The simplicity of this dress won’t steal the show from the happy couple, yet the floral pattern keeps it from being boring. Since the color palette is mainly black, you can pair it with a colorful clutch. Finish this look with simple gold accessories and you’re ready to celebrate.
When you think of horse races, the Kentucky Derby might be what comes to mind. However, don’t discount the Virginia Gold Cup. When planning your outfit for the event at the end of this month, consider full skirts such as this blue one and a bow-tie blouse. This shade of blue is popular for fall and wearing a fascinator adds something extra while staying with traditional race attire. For your shoes, wedges and flats are more practical because nothing is worse than getting your heels stuck in the mud. Plus, wedges are comfortable so you’ll be able to wear them all day.
D.C. is also known for throwing a good fundraiser or gala event. If you’re expecting to attend a soiree in the coming months, simple silhouettes with a bold color is your go-to look. Red is always a good choice because it compliments all skin tones, but this color has also been seen on many red carpets lately. For a more formal dress, pair it with classic accessories and you’re set.
