What to Wear to a Winter Wedding
Knowing what to wear to a winter wedding can be a challenge for the style-conscientious gal. You want to look great, but you also need to stay warm. Then there’s the dancing. You can’t do the Cha-Cha Slide if you are too weighed down! So how do we solve this problem? Well, the good news is the 2015 winter runways are full of fashionable looks that lend themselves to layers, making them perfect for winter wedding season.
Long maxi dresses are an easy-to-wear go-to, especially in the trendy rich hues this season loves like burgundy and army green. If you think the maxi is not formal enough, keep the same tones in mind and look for a long dress in a heavier fabric that is a bit more tailored. To stay warm, match your dress with a stylish faux fur shawl or jacket, then accent your look with a sparkling pair of diamond chandelier earrings and a matching pendant in an icy 14k white gold setting. I love these dazzling pieces featuring bold starbursts and glittering diamonds. The bold chandelier look feels both vintage and modern.
There is no shortage of long-sleeved midi dresses on the runways. Add bold patterned tights (I recommend a geometric print) and you have a great winter wedding ensemble. When accessorizing the look, focus on the hands. A personal favorite is this bold, but still feminine, sparkly 14k white gold firework bangle bracelet featuring 96 round diamonds that seem to dance around your wrist. The bracelet looks great paired with a jazzy diamond ring.
The constant staple of the season is boots, and this year is no different. From ankle booties to knee highs, the major trend this winter is boots with chunky heels and black is the color of choice.
