What to wear to a winter wedding
Fur and golden accessories
A fur coat, jacket or stole—whether real or faux—is the perfect way to keep warm during a wintertime ceremony. Add a few golden accessories, and you'll be able to skip the jewelry entirely.

Go for jewel tones, preferably those with a festive metallic sheen. A statement bauble in the same general color family and a pair of on-season ankle booties finish off the look.

Lace and velvet
Lace and velvet are ideal fabric picks for cold-weather occasions—so why not mix textures by wearing both together? Add a statement necklace and sparkly shoe, and you're all set.

Floral dresses and weddings go together like Jay-Z and Beyonce—and just because it's cold outside doesn't mean you have to ditch those blossom prints. Just pick ones in a more wintery color palette. For extra credit, add some statement gems—earrings or even a cool cocktail ring—with the same floral motif.

Don't want to go the dress route for those forthcoming nuptials? No need to! Just pair a super-dressy embellished skirt with a soft silk top and beautiful clutch. As a bonus, you'll be able to wear all these pieces to other occasions post-wedding.
