Even though summer is peak wedding season, the wintertime wedding is almost just as popular — and can make getting dressed tricky if you have to traverse a blizzard to make it to the ceremony. Depending on the forecast, we recommend using your trusty winter coat (or even a cozy parka) to insulate your formal or cocktail attire, and in extreme weather circumstances, remember that there's no shame in bringing your dancing shoes to change into at the venue. Your bedazzled peep-toe pumps will thank you.
We've put together three outfit suggestions that are both seasonally appropriate and respectfully formal for the majority of weddings. Because the cold never bothered you anyway, right?
This shoulder-baring Thakoon dress has an open back, too — a flash of skin that's sexy without being inappropriate or leaving you prone to chills. We recommend long statement earrings and white textured leather accessories to complete the look.
This look is a particularly good idea for weddings of ex's or frenemies. Channel a chic showgirl with a fringed minidress and thigh-high boots — tights optional. And with the right magic-themed accessories, you'll have everyone under your spell.
A sharp suit is always a solid wedding choice, especially in the colder seasons. We promise that no one will confuse you with a caterer if you pair it with ladylike accessories like a bedazzled, strappy pump and a kitschy clutch. Just remember: tailoring and fit are key.
