The Ultimate Winter Wedding Outfit Guide

When it comes to finding the perfect winter wedding outfit, there’s a lot of aspects to consider. You want to stay warm but you also want to dress for the occasion and be fashionable. Being invited to a winter wedding can give you the chance to experiment with a new look, but just make sure you follow the dress code and acknowledge the location of the wedding. Check out this guide for being fashionable and functional at your next winter wedding.

Go for Something Form Fitting

Every woman loves something that fits her perfectly. When shopping for the perfect ensemble, find something that fits you and that is flattering to your body type. If it’s a formal affair, don’t go with something flashy or sexy, but something that is modest and appealing.

Make sure you find out if the wedding is black tie, white tie, or casual ahead of time so you can dress accordingly.

Opt for a Shorter Heel

We all love wearing high heels, but let’s save those for summer weddings. Give your feet a break and head out in a smaller heel. Your dancing feet will you love for that.

If the wedding you are attending brings colder weather, opt for a booty so your toes stay warm or make sure your heels are closed-toed. We don’t want your feet freezing, especially if the reception is outdoors.

Keep your Makeup Natural

It’s the holidays, but we don’t need to go all-in on the makeup when attending a formal wedding. Keep the natural look in your mind when you start to get ready. Stick with nudes, light pinks, and subtle shimmer. If you want to spice it up a little consider wearing a bold lipstick or gloss.

Settle for Dainty with Jewelry 

When pairing your jewelry with your outfit, keep it chic and simple. Save the bigger pieces of jewelry for the holiday parties.

Shop for jewelry to match your outfit go with a dainty bracelet and a thin hoop earring, leave the necklace at home this time. We are going for the delicate look this winter wedding season.

Wear Dark Tones that Compliment the Season

Keep to dark and warm tones when planning your outfit. It is the winter season and we should keep that in mind when dressing for the occasion.

Stray away from bright and vibrant colors, we don’t want to take the attention away from the bride. Look for a dark maroon or even black for the occasion. This way, you’ll be able to pair silver jewelry with your outfit.

Choose Long Dresses and Pants

It is winter, so leave the cocktail dresses tucked away. Look for a long dress that flows off of your legs nicely or even a mid-shin length. You either want to show off your shoes or you don’t.

If you want to show off a little leg, shop for a long sleeve so you aren’t showing too much skin. Plus, you’ll be able to stay warm without compromising your look with a jacket.

Consider Layering  

Layering is a must, especially if the event is outdoors. Winter weddings are the perfect opportunity to layer up. Even if the wedding is not outside, wear a scarf and a nice long coat just in case you end up outdoors for a breath of fresh air.

If it is outside you’ll want to make sure you have a heavy coat, leather gloves, and an appropriate hat or headband. You don’t want to be shivering as your friends walk down the aisle.

When planning for a winter wedding outfit, always make sure you plan and acknowledge the formality and the location. Keep it modest and delicate when planning your outfit.

7 Style Tips for the Holidays

The holidays are finally here, which means your calendar is likely full of Christmas festivities! Getting a look together can be challenging at times but we have created a great list that can help guide you through this holiday season! Don’t be shy until after New Year’s, go out with a bang and stand out!

Leave the Denim Out

There is no reason you need to wear denim all 12 months of the year. Ditch the denim the month of straight holiday parties and go out with tapered black trousers or a pair of pants in a fun, festive color scheme. Store away the denim for just the holiday month and try something new!

Choose a Statement-making Coat

Chances are, it is going to be cold outside, so why not cover yourself in a coat that’ll make a statement? Go for a chic coat when headed to your holiday parties. It’ll be the first thing people notice when entering your festivities.

If you want to stand out, you can always get a fur, leather, or embroidered coat. Don’t forget to make sure it fits you properly. If it doesn’t, find a neighborhood tailor and have them make the perfect fit.

Go Bold with Jewelry

If you’ve ever wanted to go bold with jewelry, the holidays are a perfect time. Sparkle up your arm up with a gold and emerald cuff bracelet. Match that bold piece with a pair of unique gold hoops and finish it off with the bulky necklace you have been wanting to show off.

Holiday parties are the perfect place to make a statement, but if you plan on making a bold move with your jewelry, make sure to keep your outfit simple.

Opt for a High Boot

Skip the booties; go for a high boot! Chances are, you have at least a couple pairs of booties in your closet but let’s tuck those away this holiday season.

Nothing stands out more than a woman who can strut in high boots. Go for a solid black or if you are feeling bold, a tall, red velvet boot is sure to stand out.

Add Some Color and Sparkle

There is no better time than the holidays to add some shimmer to your outfit. You can add a sequined skirt, metallic top, or crystal-embellished shoe. Just remember not to go overboard with the sparkle, we don’t want you looking like a Christmas tree!

Nothing says, “Happy Holidays” more than some festive color throughout your attire. Don’t be afraid to add some neon or some acid brights to help your outfit pop. You can even incorporate Christmas colors into your jewelry if you are feeling extra jolly.

Plus, if your outfit is simple, you can opt for a festive piece of jewelry. Festive, charmed earrings and bracelets are a great way to be festive without going overboard.

Experiment with Lipstick Color

Maybe bold lipstick isn’t in your everyday makeup routine, but the holidays are a great reason to try new things! Red lipstick is always a good choice but make sure to buy the proper red tone to match your skin color.

If you aren’t a fan of red lipstick opt for something calmer, like a light pink or glittery gloss. Shimmery lips are perfect to bring in the New Year!

Don’t Shy Away from a Fierce Pattern

Leopard print is making a comeback and we are all about it. You can throw leopard into your outfit to add a little sass at any point of the day. If you want to keep it mellow, add it to your jewelry or even your shoes. If you are trying to keep it casual, go with some leopard flats.

Christmas parties are just beginning, step out of your comfort zone with one of these tips. Mix up your Holiday wardrobe and make a bold statement!
