Tip Tuesday: Dressing for the Winter Weather

Let's be real. This tip is a little obvious. It should go without saying, but make sure you dress for the weather. There's nothing worse than picking out a killer white mini dress only to realize that it won't work by the time your December bridal shower rolls around. Take weather into account as you're selecting the perfect outfit. If you live somewhere where the weather is a little harder to predict, have a few outfits on standby, just in case. If you live somewhere a little warmer, you'll want to make sure to make sure your ensemble looks seasonally appropriate, since it is December after all. Let's take a look at some tips for dressing for colder weather at your next wedding event.

  • Sweater Weather: Bridal events don't have to be all about dresses. Sweaters are perfect for more laid-back winter brides, but can be dressed up with a sequin or metallic skirt, too!

  • Layers: Baby it's cold outside! There's no need to freeze when you there are so many on-trend jackets available right now. Two of our favorites for a fancier affair are faux fur or wrap coats. If you have an all white ensemble, add a pop of color by opting for blush or metallic jacket.

  • Tie in white in a different way: Can't find the perfect white dress for your occasion? No big deal! If you opt for a colored option, like champagne, silver, or rose gold, tie in a white jacket, purse, or booties to complete the look.

  • Warm Weather Accessories: Winter is the perfect opportunity to add a little flair. Hats, scarves, and gloves don't have to be purely for function. Try out new trends like sequins or embellishments to add a little something extra. Select a set or mix and match to tie it all together.

  • Appropriate Footwear: If it's cold, opt for flats, boots, or booties to stay warm and on-trend. White booties are all the rage, so take advantage of this fashion trend. Dressing for the weather doesn't just apply to the temperature. If you're up against rain or snow, opt for a more bridal option in white or softer shades.

  • Skip the skirt: One of our favorite trends over the last few years is jumpsuits. We love a good jumpsuit or any variation thereof (pantsuit, romper, playsuit, etc.) A perfectly tailored jumpsuit is a great way to add a little edge or step outside the box.

  • Keep it casual: This is your engagement, which means you get to make the rules. Not into dressing up? No problem. Keep it casual in a sweater dress, or even more laid back with jeans and a blouse. You'll always feel the most comfortable when you stay true to your own style.
