What To Wear To A Winter Wedding

Finding the perfect wedding guest outfit can be tricky, even in the midst of summer but winter weddings have the added complication of trying to find something to wear that's stylish as well as seasonally-appropriate. That strappy dress you love so much just won't cut it when temperatures are below zero!

But if you're not sure what to wear to a winter wedding or are looking for some serious style inspiration, then don't fret. We've rounded up some stunning winter wedding guest inspo to make sure you look and feel fab at your next nuptials. 

From stylish cover-ups and luxe tailoring to statement skirts and sparkly accessories, discover chic ideas for what to wear to a winter wedding below. 

Stay warm with luxe tailoring

If the idea of wearing tights or going bare-legged is unbearable, then why not opt for a chic jumpsuit or fitted trousers instead. Perfectly tailored bottoms can look just as polished as a dress and may even be more comfortable. 

Cover up with a blazer

A cute cardigan may be your usual wedding guest cover-up but in the colder months, try swapping it for something a little warmer like a longline blazer. Black is a classic choice but something more colourful, like a burgandy number, is just as chic.

Dazzle with a statement skirt

Turn heads with a gorgeous pleated metallic midi skirt that shimmers as you walk, catching the eye and drawing it up, helping to elongate and streamline your silhouette. Get more styling tips for this ultra versatile skirt here

Embrace layers

Make what's hanging in your closet work for winter by layering dresses underneath slouchy knits. Opt for luxurious fabrics and similar shades for a pulled-together look. 

Go for on-trend velvet

Velvet dresses were spotted all over the AW16 catwalks, and happily this is one look that easily translates from runway to real life. This velvety 50s-style 'wiggle dress' flatters the curves with the help of some clever ruching at the stomach while its deep, rich red shade is perfect for winter.

Add some sparkle

Nothing says celebration more than a bit of glitter. An easy way to update your favourite LBD is to add some sparkling accessories and touches. Try a pretty necklace or gold clutch to add a bit of flair to your look.
