What to Wear to a Winter Wedding
So you've been invited to a wedding which happens to fall within the winter months and you’re dreading the thought of having to dress both stylishly and cold weather appropriate. But fear not, Team LBD is here to guide you with what to wear to a winter wedding in style (and warmth). Just because the sun has set on summer doesn't make dressing up for a wedding any less fun. We have long maxi styles and long-sleeved dresses for those who want to stay warm, sparkles for those who want to party, colours to match the festive season and of course many styles of the trusted little black dress. Here at Little Black Dress we are always thinking of ways you ladies can look good no matter what the event and occasion, that’s our mission. The aim is to look fabulous, festive and above all, appropriate. So we have put together some tips you should think about when deciding on what to wear to a winter wedding. THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS Little black dresses are the go-to style for all occasions, even weddings. Yes, you heard us correctly. Don’t be afraid of wearing black to a wedding, especially a winter wedding. As much as winter white seems like a good option, how often would you wear a white dress? Avoid splurging and wearing it just the once and opt for a classic LBD. Update yours for the new season with festive touches such as feathers and embellishment and introduce colour with accessories if you feel like brightening up your ensemble. GREAT LENGTHS It might seem obvious, but if the wedding you’re attending requires you to be outside for a little while then you’ll appreciate the extra fabric! Very few occasions require a full length gown, so we say rise to the occasion and go for it. Nothing is quite impactful, or as flattering, as a long evening maxi dress. VINTAGE THEMED Is the bride a bit of a vintage belle? Then she’ll appreciate your attention to detail if you choose a suitably vintage inspired dress. We suggest opting for a flapper dress; an embellished style will be fitting both in terms of theme and season. Little Black Dress is the number one online destination for flapper dresses so there are plenty of styles to choose from. Luckily, adding tights and a fur stole only adds to the complete flapper girl look – warm and stylish. RED HOT HUES Weddings during the summer month’s call for pretty pastels and bright pops of colour, so if you don’t want to risk wearing black then take our advice and go for wintery hues of deep claret or midnight blue. The entire red spectrum is having a style moment, from rosy rouges to of-the-moment Marsala, celebrities are opting for the hue on the red carpet and it flooded the catwalks, wearing red to a winter wedding definitely proves your style credentials. CLEVER COVERS Braving the elements is essential but you don’t want to be bundled up in unnecessary layers and covering the all-important piece, your dress. So we suggest being a bit clever with the particular style of dress, think heavier fabrics like lace and velvet, dresses with sleeves and slips. Dresses with lace sleeves are perfect as they reveal a glimpse of skin and keep you covered but still look stylish, lace is always on trend. Little Black Dress has the perfect wedding guest dresses collection, full of suitable styles for all types of weddings.
