Tartan and Sequins Style File: Fall Wedding Guest Looks on a Budget

Sep 20, 2012

So happy to welcome back Julia {from my favorite style blog, Tartan and Sequins} to chat with us again! Today, J is sharing her insider tips on pulling together flawless wedding guest attire ... on a budget to boot! Whip out that pen and paper, ladies! ;)

If any of you brides-to-be out there are like me, you are currently saving for your own wedding. Which would be MUCH easier if you stayed home every night and just ate Easy Mac. Unfortunately, that's simply not reality. Many of our friends and family members are getting married and we must look fabulous. So how do you look your best on a budget? Ladies, this is how I plan on faking it until I make it.

1. Splurge on the basics
Get yourself some fabulous black pumps and a killer clutch. You can then pair them with pretty much anything! I've styled them here with both a LBD and a second RTR look. Both looks would be perfect for a fall wedding or event.

2. Stock up on accessories
As you can see in the two looks I've styled today and in pretty much every How We Style It post on the blog, I love me some statement costume jewelry! I currently have four containers of statement necklaces and a whole drawer of bracelets that I use to change up my look. A different necklace can can completely transform a dress from one style to another.

3. Rent the Runway
Okay RTR is a life-changer. For a fraction of the purchase price, you can rent a designer gown for four days. The first time you order a specific brand, you get the dress in two sizes to ensure it fits. Attending a weekend-long event? Your second rental is only $25! Amazing right?

Do you all have any other tips for looking chic on a budget? If so, do share! Xo J

Wow, I'm a bit obsessed with the red look Julia put together - wouldn't it be insanely perfect for a holiday wedding? Love!
