I have a wedding to go to...yet again! =P BUT I am kindof excited for this one, because it's in December and I have never been to a wedding that has had snow on the ground!
It's an awesome idea, but I have NO idea what to wear! Pants, skirt with leggings, long dress, short dress with leggings? HELP!
I feel like leggings would be inappropriate to wear to a wedding and just plain un-chic!
You could different outfits for a winter wedding. I would suggest if you are going to wear a dress, instead of pairing it with leggings, go with tights. Tights are more chic (in my opinion) than leggings. You can do a short dress with tights. Now I know, some people brave the cold and just wear a dress with a warm winter coat, so you have the option to do that.
I agree with Hanny and Stacie. You definitely want to don tights vs leggings. Dressed already cut your body typically at 3/4 length, and leggings further section your body up. Tights will be more flattering to the outfit since it won't break up your body. Also- I love the idea of wearing some winter inspired colors such as a red dress. Depending on the formality of the wedding (black tie, cocktail attire, etc.) you might want to consider Lauren's post on her top ten affordable holiday dresses! :)
I think a cocktail type dress would be best. Short enough to not sweep the snowy, slushy ground and longer length to keep you warm. Pack a shawl or a dressy jacket to keep you warm. If you live in very cold climate like I do, pack a foldable bag like a longchamp and pack your dress shoes there so that you can check your boots at the coat check.
I would defiantly do rich jewel tones or shimmery metallics; you can always go a bit more glam since winter is so dreary!
wear tights, if you must double up--leggings will just look bad unless you are wearing a floor-length gown which will cover everything up!
wear and ice blue or dark blue dress but not navy. pair it with the perfect leaher jacket or sweater. for my style i prefer the leather jacket. Then, as far as accessories go, layered necklaces including black and regular diamonds. Rings are fine too in the same fashion. i think leggings would look okay in this style. Deffinately wear heels in this. If u wan to add a pop of color where gold(especially as a belt and headband). French nails make this look professional. Gloss your lips. Curl your hair the into a bun. if is super cold where a nice black peacoat over the look
I agree with Hanny and Phoebe, to me tights can be elegant depending on what you wear it with and I would wear it with some type of blue for the season. You could go with maybe a red for christmas but it would be cliche to do that the same time, but my top pick would be a blue. I prefer navy blue. For the tights you could go with white or a cream/ ivory color or maybe even silver if you can find it with maybe white heels or black depending on what color of tights. You could wear pearls with it if you wanted to or a long necklace that you can layer. If you wanted to go all out you would get your makeup done, Clinique does free consultations and they have nice eyeshadow colors too. I hope this helps you out and I hope you have fun at the wedding! :)
Having recently been to a winter wedding here in England I was able to observe to 'fabs' and 'fails'. For example some ladies seem to have just teamed a summer wedding outfit with a heavy pair of black tights, epic fail! Whilst others took the fact is was a winter wedding to mean dress like your copying the christmas tree! I think ideally you need to get a good balance of elegance and warmth. I opted for the outfit in my profile pic, a lace grey skater dress with embellished Peter Pan collar, sheer grey hold ups and a dark green cardi to add some colour. Something else I did was fake tan my legs so that once the party was underway and the dance moves were being busted j could take my hold ups off for comfort and to reduce body temperature.
Some nice colours I spotted on people were: line green, burnt orange and red.
Best of luck finding something! Sometimes I think the bride has if easy when it comes to a wedding outfit!
