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 Wear Leggings

how-to-style-leggings-chicastic

Leggings are not only trendy, but they’ve become an important staple in our wardrobes because of their comfort and style. Women of all shapes and sizes are sporting fashionable leggings, and that’s because they are versatile and offer fluidity in the way of different fashion sensibilities. From casual country to hardcore punk rock to goth to preppy styles, there is a legging for everyone! However, there is such a thing as wearing the “wrong” legging. Here are a few fashion tips to help you find YOUR perfect legging!

Leggings were made for layering! They are kind of a hybrid between tights and pants which makes them the perfect cool weather clothing. But that doesn’t mean they can’t be worn during summer! They just have to be worn a different way. Just remember, leggings are NOT a substitute for pants. An exception can be made if you are at the gym, but it is very difficult if not impossible to incorporate leggings without layers. Of course, this is a matter of opinion, so if you CAN pull off leggings as pants outside of the gym, then go ahead and rock on, girl.

Generally, you want to make sure that the leggings you choose fits well. They should not be so tight that every little bend or dimple shows, but not so loose that they wrinkle or bunch in your crotch or ankles. That is not cute at all, and will draw attention to areas where attention need not be paid. Make sure you wear a thong or a seamless pair of underwear to safely avoid unnecessary lines. The basic rule is to make sure that whatever top you choose covers your backside.

If you like wearing short skirts, a lightweight legging is a good choice. They offer coverage and an opportunity to introduce a bright color or print that you like. Change it up and wear leggings with shorts for a more punk rock look. If you choose bright and funky prints or colors, a subtle flat shoe or solid cardigan will balance your outfit so you don’t look laden with unnecessary details. Leggings can also be worn under dresses if the colors complement each other. Wear a solid dress with printed leggings or a printed dress with solid leggings, or solid with solid. Very few can get away with prints on prints. If you are one of those lucky few, share your look with us!

For workouts, you can absolutely show your personality in your leggings! Here is where your leggings can pretend to be pants! Try a pair of fun tribal print leggings paired with a solid colored sports bra. There are so many combinations to create, especially for the gym!

Work is a tricky place to incorporate leggings. Make sure the work environment deems it appropriate. If you work in a retail clothing shop, find something that matches the aesthetic of your store. If you work in a store by the beach, make sure you pair your leggings with a tank top and sandals. If you are employed at a department store, you will want to pay a little more attention to your specific department. Someone working in bridals will wear a very different outfit than someone working in housewares, just as someone working in the children’s clothing section will wear something that one wouldn’t wear if they were working in the men’s clothing department. There might not be too much of a difference as department stores have to maintain a standard of dress, but there will be subtleties nonetheless.

If you are a hostess at a restaurant, a pair of dark colored leggings and a long tank under a loose fitting cardigan is an easy, neutral look. Make sure the shoes you wear are comfortable as well.

For those who work with children, dark colored leggings are best so you can hide stains. Even bright and wild prints will work to keep stains camouflaged and the kids will enjoy them as well. Leggings offer flexibility so you can play on the floor with the kids or have story time comfortably.

Leggings might not be appropriate if you work in a traditional office, but for a creative office, you can probably get away with animal prints. Consider your workplace and determine if this is an appropriate article of clothing. Muted colors and a chambray top with ballet flats can work on Casual Fridays. Closed toed shoes are the best in this situation.

For running errands, comfort is definitely key! A cool graphic t-shirt and sneakers are a necessity. Add a scarf to pull your look together, weather permitting. Or add a lovely cotton tunic top for some upscale comfort.

Make sure you coordinate your outfits well, and don’t be afraid to add an interesting accessory to make your look pop! For example, you may want to incorporate a statement necklace with bright beads, or a stack of bracelets. An easy and functional way to make your outfits your own is to carry an unforgettable handbag or clutch.

There you have it! Check out Chicastic’s selection of leggings, shoes and clutches to create your perfect look today!
