What to wear to winter weddings and events

During the beginning of the fall and into the holidays, dressing for weddings and special events seems like a no-brainer. During these months, access to glitzy dresses and statement jewelry is right at our finger tips. Now that the holidays are over, and most of us are so tired of black sequins, metallic, or even the color red it can seem painful to turn to our holiday wear when we need something for a wedding or event in January or February. Most of all, we are ready for a change-not quite Spring attire yet, but something fresh, beautiful, and glamorous.
Dressing for a winter wedding or special event can really be quite fun. It’s an opportunity for us to mix and match colors with neutrals, while mixing in some of the fun jewelry or shoes that we may already have. 

For the ultimate classic look go with Lace. Lace is going to be super hot this season and is going to be even hotter into the spring. Steer away from cream or white lace so that you don’t look like you are trying to compete with the bride. Pair your lace dress with a big gem stud earring, no necklace, and a few simple bracelets stacked. This style of dress looks beautiful paired with a simple strappy sandal, or a classic pump that you already own

If you are feeling like you need a fashion “pick me up,” try a simple shift dress with sleeves in a bright color. A bright color like hot pink, blue, or green is crisp and fun.  Keep the overall look wintery and classic by pairing your shift dress with a pair of black opaque tights. Pair with a simple black pump and keep your jewelry feminine and light.

If you want to try to incorporate items that you already have without feeling too “holiday-ish” start with one of your little black dresses. Have fun with your little black dress by pairing with a fitted blazer. Pair with fun, printed tights with polka dots or stripes, and finish off the look with a pair of black velvet pumps, a statement necklace and simple stud earrings. This look is classic, yet playful in one.
