What to wear to a winter wedding in 2013

Accessories

Everyone loves a wedding… not least of all because you get to buy yourself a new outfit. But what happens when it’s a winter wedding and you need to balance looking good with keeping warm?

Well, just like attending high tea in winter, a baby shower, or holidaying in London, layers are the key.

Think sexy hosiery, closed-toe heels, a statement jacket and of course, a little bit of bling!

Because it’s winter you may be drawn to a darker, warmer colour palette, but don’t be afraid to brighten things up with a pop of colour.

We’ve pulled eight different looks, for eight different dress codes, see what you think…

RED CARPET READY

If the wedding you’re going to is a formal affair, go for a maxi dress or long gown to keep your legs warm, and try a headpiece for an extra slice of elegance.

COCKTAIL PARTY WEDDING

Cocktail parties traditionally mean short dresses, so make sure you find a good quality pair of stockings and go for a longer trench if you know it’s going to be especially cold.
