What to Wear to a Winter Wedding (PHOTOS)

what to wear winter weddingIf you’re lucky enough to get an invitation to a winter wedding, you’ll definitely want to reach for an embellished sheath dress. During this festive time of the year, it’s nice to give your LBD (little black dress) a rest and reach for something with a little sparkle. 


I’ve created two similar outfits -- one budget friendly and one splurge worthy -- so you can mix and match the pieces to your liking. The high-end embellished dress is by Adrianna Papell, and our budget-friendly version is from H&M. Throw on a faux fur jacket, black suede pumps, black clutch, and a pair of stud earrings, and you’re ready to celebrate the newlyweds!

Winter Wedding, Budget Friendly:

You’re going to love this sequined dress because it’s constructed of jersey material, so it will feel as comfortable as a T-shirt. Plus, the sequined design on the front is like a work of art. Sole Society creates beautiful shoes at a great price, and I love these d’Orsay suede pumps -- a classic style you’ll wear over and over again. The faux fur jacket is a fun addition to any wardrobe, and you can also wear it with jeans and a top for date night. The black clutch and double-sided stud earrings are staples that should be in every woman’s closet.

Winter Wedding, Splurge Worthy:

My two favorite pieces from this outfit are the dress and the faux fur jacket. The art deco design on this embellished sheath dress is really gorgeous, and the faux fur jacket both looks and feels luxurious. A dressy jacket like this comes in handy to wear over any cocktail dress in chilly weather. The remaining three pieces -- black suede pumps, black leather clutch, and gray glitterball post earrings -- are all wardrobe essentials that will get plenty of wear.
