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.
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.
