How to Dress for a Fall Garden Party

Fall is one my favorite times of the year to embrace nature and take long strolls through pretty parks and gardens. I stumbled across the Elizabeth Street Garden a few weekends ago and couldn’t help but take photos as the outfit I was wearing fit in so perfectly with the setting. This is a look that would work so well for a garden party, whether in the Fall or Spring. As it’s been unseasonably warm for November, take advantage of the warm weather and have a garden party! It would be so unexpected and refreshing for the Fall season, plus it’s a chance to wear a cute outfit.

How to Dress for a Garden Party

When it comes to dressing for a garden party, there are a few key elements to incorporate:

  • Something floral! This is the most important piece for any garden party – you want to look like you fit in with the flowers.
  • Something with warm colorful tones! Gardens are typically full of color and life, so embrace that theme and wear colors in burgundy, rich greens, purple, pink, and soft reds.
  • For cooler weather such as Fall, layer on a structured jacket or blazer with feminine details. This could be the silhouette of the jacket (for example flared or cropped), the color of the jacket, or details such as fancy buttons or padded shoulders.

I paired the skirt with a white blouse with an embellished collar and a vintage suede jacket to stay warm and add a sophisticated vibe. I chose my new burgundy Hush Puppies boots to add a warm rich color, and finished the look with a vintage bag and vintage earrings for a feminine touch. I also wore small delicate rings in silver and gold to match the gold buttons of the jacket. I really love the colors in this look and the overall effect. A trick I always use is to pair a white blouse with something floral – the blouse balances out the colors in the outfit.

Who else is surprised that these boots are from Hush Puppies?! I’ve traditionally associated them with more comfort-based, casual shoes that aren’t the most fashion forward, but they’ve really stepped up their game this season! These booties are so cute and I love the color, not to mention they are super light and comfortable. They also come in Navy and Taupe if you’re looking for a more neutral tone.
