Winter weddings tend to get guests up in arms and confused about that to wear. While dressing warm in winter may be easier for men, for ladies it may mean keeping those skirts and heels in the cupboard.
Traditionally, the brief for wedding attire is formal or semi-formal – however, what to wear for a winter wedding may mean you need to break the rules a little bit.
It comes down to the basic items
The key to looking good and staying warm at a winter wedding is finding an outfit that is both practical and comfortable – and a coat is a great way to go. A coat is the one key element that can bring your whole look together as it has that “formal” factor that can dress up nearly any outfit.
Get playful with what goes under the coat
What goes under the coat is what you should look at next. Some ladies might want to opt for a dress with a thick pair of stockings, however do not be restricted by old mindsets. Get playful. There are many ways to dress up your look – perhaps a jumpsuit or a pair of fitted slacks. Make sure to play around with different looks and that your warm coat remains the main feature of the look.
Style might influence what to wear to a winter wedding
However, in saying all this, the style of the ceremony may dictate the look you go for i.e. church weddings may mean coats and dresses while outdoor weddings may mean you don’t need to be formal in your choices regarding what to wear to a winter wedding.
