For those of us in Florida, an October wedding still calls for a sleeve-less or short-sleeve dress. But opt for one in a darker, fall hue. Think jewel tone colors like berry, dark green, navy blue and black. I'm always a fan of a nice black dress at a fall or winter wedding.
For other regions where the temperatures may be a bit cooler than Florida, opt for a 3/4 sleeve or long-sleeve dress. Also, stick to those jewel tones; they look great on any skin tone, and darker colors are naturally more slimming.

When the temperatures are a bit colder, I like a closed toe, platform heel or wedge. If you know you'll be in grass, always opt for a wedge or lower heel. Otherwise, you'll be clinging to your date's arm the entire night—well, that might actually not be a bad thing.
Also, mixing high end and affordable pieces together are a great way to style an outfit for a wedding. If you splurge on a dress, look for less expensive shoes and jewelry. If you want to go big on jewelry, you can always find a great dress for less than $100.
