It’s time to get outfit planning (Picture: Rixo/NetAPorter/ASOS)

November is here, meaning there’s an almost festive feel in the air.

Now, while we aren’t urging anyone to untangle the fairy lights just yet, we must be aware that winter nuptials will very soon be blocking up our calendars.

This means the wedding guest dress hunt will be officially on.

Unlike summer, the options at this time of year are sumptuous. Think satin, velvet and lots of sparkle. There is richness to the designs and as we move through the social high point of the year, you are sure to wear your purchase more than once.

As the temperatures chill, look to midi dress options for some extra warmth. Choose deeper tones of red, brown and beige and never say no to a black dress because it is forever a classic.

If you are on the search for dress inspiration, look to ASOS and Warehouse for affordable choices.

Meanwhile, if you want to spend a little extra, try Sister Jane for something truly unique or turn to Rotate and Rixo to make a sartorial impact.
