What to Wear to a Winter Wedding

Winter can be a cold and cruel season. Pretty summer hues are slowly eaten away by autumn and though the first snowfall may be beautiful, it melts away to a brown, gloopy mess. All of a sudden, you remember there’s a wedding smack in the middle of winter that you already RSVP’d to! There’s no backing out of it now, but what on earth do you wear?

First thing’s first, don’t panic! Winter is an opportunity to explore a new look, so try to have fun with it.

Next, look up the average temperature of that day. You want to be prepared!

Try new, rich jewel tones that include plum, wine, emerald, or deep blue. Warmer fabrics like brocade, velour, velvet or even knit can help keep the shivers to a minimum. Wrap your shoulders in faux fur or a velvet wrap for the outdoors, or add a pop of whimsy with a warm patterned pashmina.

Winter Wedding

 

For extra warmth, layer on tights instead of hose and instead of scrappy sandals wear velvet shoes like these crystal encrusted peep toe heels! Perhaps carry the shoes in with you and wear boots on your way to the venue, just so you don’t muddy up your outfit.

Accessorizing for a winter wedding offers more of an opportunity for sparkle and shine, even for casual weddings. Glittering mesh clutch purses are perfect for casual or cocktail style weddings, whereas crystal encrusted clutch bags are a beautiful touch of glam for formal events.

How To Build a Winter Capsule Wardrobe

Winter Capsule Wardrobe

 

If you live in a multi-season climate, there are certain habits you pick up when cultivating your wardrobe, most notably the habit of storing away certain seasonal pieces during their months of non-use. Flip flops, tank tops and shorts are squirreled away in the attic, while sweaters, scarves and hats make their way into your closet. Sometimes, it gets a little tedious. The way to solve this problem is to create a layered wardrobe that can easily transition from fall to winter! Here is how!

First, look through your closet. Keep pieces that are suitable for layering, including basic tank tops, button downs, and cardigans! Essentially, a lot of your spring wardrobe can STILL be used during the winter! What you would most likely pack away would be your open toed shoes, sandals, shorts, and skirts. The exception to the rule would be shoes you would wear to the office like these peep toe crystal heels from Chicastic.

Secondly, decide how many of those pieces you would like to use for the season. The easiest way to figure this out is to determine your color story. Remove everything that generally doesn’t fit in color wise.

Third, determine what you need for the rest of the season. You’ll definitely want to make sure you have thicker pieces for layering.

  1. Loose Fit Lightweight Shrug Style Casual Cardigan
  2. Drapey Open Front Cardigan
  3. Soft Plaid Square Blanket Neck Scarf Pashmina Shawl Wrap
  4. Crossbody Handbag
