What To Wear To A Winter Wedding

12 days ago

It's never as simple as a summer wedding because you can't just opt for a strappy summer dress. For a winter wedding this season, here are my fave ideas...

The one time you can go for black


Usually, I wouldn't really opt for black for a wedding unless it was very formal and I'd cleared it with the bride first. However, for winter weddings, I think black suddenly becomes really appropriate and super-chic.

If I was choosing black I'd go for something like this gorgeous Theory dress with soft draping accents and semi-sheer details to really soften the look and keep it far away from anything office-like. I also love the asymmetric neckline on this dress.

I love wearing black with black accessories and then one bold pop of colour in a statement piece. To jazz up black for a wedding, I'd love to do a hot pink piece. Just not all together!!!

Black also works for a winter wedding guest outfit really well with lace and other super-textured fabrics.


How much does this Halston Heritage dress remind you of that Carrie Bradshaw wedding outfit? (when she makes a speech and Big takes a phone call - you remember the one!)

Try Deeper Florals


Florals work just as well for winter but try a deeper, richer palette, which makes it more seasonally appropriate. This David Meister print is stunning and I love the pencil skirt with tiered frill hemline.

This works perfectly with the barely-there strappy heels in black that the model's wearing and why not add some drama with a veiled headpiece!?

Alternative Prints


I love prints to a wedding in general, but this Veronica Beard seems like it was made for a winter wedding.

The hemline is stunning and this monochrome palette to me was shouting out for a little splash of colour so I paired red with this grey, which is one of my fave combos.

Do A Jumpsuit


I definitely think a jumpsuit has a place at a winter wedding but these would be my style rules:
- Keep shape interesting, not too simple or you border on it not being dressy enough
- Choose luxe fabrics, like satin or lace
- Opt for strapless or super-chic necklines, rather than anything too "ordinary"
- Always always always pair it with heels.

From left to right:
- I'm obsessed with this flounce jumpsuit from Halston Heritage. The fabric keeps it really dressy and it makes black suddenly wow.
- It's all about the neckline for this red Rachel Comey, I mean, look at it.
- Tibi keeps it simple but adds just enough detail to look super dressy at the hem.
- Deep florals again make this Milly jumpsuit perfect for a wedding and I love the plunging neckline because it's still super elegant.

Finally,


I don't love throwing on a coat or jacket with a beaut dress just to stay warm at a wedding. I would 100% rather be a little chilly when outdoors and drape a pashmina over my shoulders, which done right is effortlessly chic.
You'll keep one of these for your entire life so invest well and DRY CLEAN ONLY!
