It's time to throw on a dress, but you absolutely can't decide what to wear to an afternoon wedding in October. A cocktail dress just won't work! Instead, our experts suggest investing in an option you can wear again and again. Who wants to go shopping for a classic DVF wrap dress? We sure do!

I'm a college student who's going to a semiformal afternoon wedding in October. What do I wear?

It's too early in the day for a cocktail dress, and a simple sweater and skirt will be too informal. This might be the time to invest in a classic fitted suit that you can then dress up with a sexy sheer camisole. Or look for a silk wrap dress in a cheerful print. And don't forget to accessorize. A great pair of earrings, a fabulous handbag and to-die-for shoes will transform your attire from everyday to elegant.
