The holidays are called the most wonderful time of the year for a reason: lots of great parties, yummy food, glitter everywhere, and quality time spent with your friends and family. Plus it's engagement season — our favorite time of the year! Engagement parties and winter weddings galore will have you searching for that perfect guest outfit.

We suggest pairing a cutout, off-the-shoulder jumpsuit with a white cape blazer and statement-making crystal earrings for some bridal flair for your engagement party. And you can complement a gold lamé maxi dress with simple patent pumps and a sleek chignon for your BFF's winter wonderland wedding.

Fall Wedding Guest Trends

With the new season underway, we're getting all of our fall wedding guest looks in order. Trends are always fun to embrace, especially when you're having trouble figuring out what to wear. And though you may not want to choose the boldest fad of the season for a ceremony as a wedding guest, you can find ways to slip in one or even two if you do it in moderation.

Few women know how to blend vintage, of-the-moment accents, and elegance like Pia Arrobio. Her buzzy new brand, LPA, is a favorite of BFF Emily Ratajkowski, Gigi Hadid, and Kendall Jenner—in case you were wondering about its star power. Dressing for a wedding is all about blending personal signatures with some fun trends for Arrobio. "I hate feeling like I have to sacrifice personal style at weddings," she told Brides. "Obviously you want to remain classy and respectful, but feel like yourself and have good content of your sick outfit for Instagram." We tapped the designer for five ways to incorporate fall's trends into your wedding guest attire.

1. Take flight with elegant feathers.
"Feathers are a fun trend I like to pair with classic Manolo Blahnik heels," advises Arrobio. Though they can be a bold embellishment, we love them on the hem of a timeless LBD—for example, the way they're accenting the bottom of this Maia sheath. This will definitely let your Manolos get some shine. And you can wear your hair down or in an updo as the focal point is all about your curves and legs.

2. Throw a fur chubby over your shoulders.
With the Fall comes plummeting temperatures and thus, the need to stay warm. But what do you do when you want your look to get some shine without freezing as a result? That's where a cute, cropped jacket comes into play. Few do the cozy texture better than Adrienne Landau and this blue fox and rabbit piece from the brand is just the thing to keep the autumnal chill at bay, while letting your ensemble play centerstage.

3. Go for the drama with statement-making earrings.
Even the simplest ensemble can be uplifted with a pair of conversation-starting earrings. Though Alessandra Rich is known for her gorgeous, bridal-worthy gowns, she actually makes some pretty stunning accessories as well—Arrobio called the brand one of her absolute favorites. These pearl beauties fall to your shoulders and work best when your hair is pulled back. Throw these on with a simple shift dress and let your accoutrements do all the work.

4. Toughen up a soft look with a black leather jacket.
We love the balance between soft and tough elements and nothing aids in that mix better than a tried-and-true black leather jacket. LPA actually makes a fun, rose-embroidered and studded design that we are going to pair for the season with a blush pink dress, studs, a head-turning necklace, and black pumps.

5. Opt for glitz and glamour with a metallic bag.
Fall and holiday are all about metallics, aren't they? A silver or gold dress might be a bit too much if you're not a daredevil, so Arrobio suggests a bag in a glittering shade. Her choice? A Monogram Clutch from Saint Laurent because you can wear it forever.
