Wedding Guest Outfits for Cold Weather

Wedding Guest Outfits for Cold Weather

Wedding season is all year round, and that means braving the cold sometimes to celebrate with loved ones and friends. If you’re attending this special event in winter, you may have to dress for the snow. Spring and fall weddings can also get chilly, especially if it’s a breezy or cloudy day. Make sure you’re prepared by having a cold-weather outfit picked out and ready to go. Whether you’re heading to a casual or fancy affair, you can look stylish and stay warm. We’ve put together a list of ideas to help you get started.

Pantsuit and Longline Cardigan

One of the best ways to beat the cold is to layer up. Create a chic wedding look with wide-leg, high-waisted pants and a nice top. There’s a variety of tops that will work with this look. You could go for a sleeveless turtleneck, for example, or a lace blouse.

Tuck your top into your pants and add a longline cardigan that hits mid-calf. Cashmere is a great choice for a luxurious look and a warm feel. If your top is bulky in any way, be sure to pick out a cardigan with wider sleeves. This will prevent any clothing lines from peeking through. Once you’ve found the ideal cardigan, tie your look together with a matching belt cinched at the waist. Complete the outfit and elongate your legs with a pair of pointed-toe shoes.

Long Sleeve Dress

A long sleeve dress is ideal for chilly weather. The silhouette looks classy, while the extra coverage keeps you warm. You’ll also get the freedom of movement you need to rock out on the dancefloor. A wrap or shirt dress will accentuate your curves. To create or enhance an hourglass shape, cinch your dress at the waist with a stylish belt.

A black dress is always a classic, reliable choice for fancy events. Jewel tone and metallic dresses are also great choices for an elegant look. These hues go well with both silver and gold. Accessorize with jewelry that compliments the neckline of your dress. A necklace will work well with a low-cut dress, for example. If your dress has a high neckline, go for a pair of statement earrings instead. Finish off your outfit with a pair of heeled pumps or stiletto boots.

Jumpsuit and Coverup

A jumpsuit is another stylish choice for cold-weather weddings. This versatile clothing piece can be worn on its own indoors and with a coverup outside. Jumpsuits come in a variety of lengths and silhouettes, so it’ll be easy to find something that suits your style. You could go for a loose, wide-leg jumpsuit or a fitted, streamlined design. Style it with a cropped jacket or smart blazer. It’ll also look great with a wrap or stole.

To maximize on coziness, go for a coverup made from soft fabric, like velvet or faux fur. You can also drape one of your classy winter scarves around your shoulders. Use jewelry and an evening bag to accessorize this sophisticated outfit. A pair of strappy heels or wedges will complete the look.

Mini Dress and Tights

A mini dress, one that hits mid-thigh or above the knee, is a great option for showing off your legs. Adapt yours for colder weather by wearing it with a pair of tights. Plain, semi-sheer tights will look great with dresses that feature a lot of design details. For simpler dress styles, add some fun and personality with lace or patterned tights. Wear your mini dress and tights with a pair of closed-toe heels or leather booties to complete your wedding look. If you prefer more coverage, a midi dress will also work. Thanks to the mid-calf hemline, your tights will still peek through. This style of dress also creates a natural A-Line shape that looks flattering on everyone.

Skirt and Long Sleeve Top

Wearing separates is a great way to accentuate your best features. For destination weddings, separates are also more efficient to pack. You can mix and match them with other pieces to create additional outfits for the wedding weekend. A skirt and women’s long sleeve top is the ideal combo for cold-weather celebrations.

Go for a fitted turtleneck or a pussybow blouse and tuck it into a knee-length or midi skirt. A body-hugging skirt will show off your curves, while an A-Line cut will create a balanced shape. This outfit will look great with heels, Mary Jane pumps, or ankle boots. For added warmth, wear this outfit with a pea coat. Keep it simple with neutrals, or go bold with a color-blocking effect. You can also add a belt for extra style.

These looks will have you feeling warm and looking wonderful, no matter where or when the wedding. They’re also easy to dress up or down to fit a variety of locations and themes. Be sure to check out the women’s collection at Lands’ End for clothing and accessories to help build your look.
