5 Of The Best Dresses To Wear To A Winter Wedding

5 Of The Best Dresses To Wear To A Winter Wedding

From fiery velvets and star-studded motifs to delicate lace bodice dresses and whimsical chiffon, here are 5 gorgeous high-street dresses perfect for any winter wedding guest.

This delicate lace midi-dress in soft blush, €70.94 at Asos.com

This pale blush lace midi is a gorgeous choice for pale and olive-toned skin during winter. The elegant plunging neckline compliments the traditional long hem length, and the thin spaghetti straps give the appearance of toned shoulders. Pair with a fur stole and a statement minaudiere for the perfect chic finish.

This star-studded deep blue dress, €199 at Uterque.com

Whether you’re going to a black-tie affair or an intimate dinner party, this full-length star-studded dress from Uterque is a stunning option. Featuring a star pattern, a crossover design with V-neck, it’s both elegant and sexy, and a drawstring fastening at the waist provides comfort after a three-course meal. The rich blue colour is an uber-luxurious colour to wear during any season, but particularly so during winter months. What’s more, I love how the light catches the velvet, giving the appearance of multiple layers of blue and even a hint of silver. Pair with simple silver earrings and a statement red lip.

This embellished mini dress, €49.95 at Zara

Short is the new long. Not only is it a modern approach to wedding attire, it’s also a great way to experiment with alternative wedding shoes like over-the-knee boots or tights and statement shoes. With a round neckline, long sleeves and embellished embroidery detail this embellished dress from Zara, below, is the perfect blend of elegant and chic.

 

This Christmas-inspired velvet dress; complete with beautiful stars and sparkles, €130 at Topshop.com

Let’s face it, Christmas is about the only time of year when we can get away with wearing A) velvet, B) red and C) sequins, all in the one ensemble. This wrap dress from Topshop, below, has been given a decadent update with attractive embellishment detailing in a really rich raspberry colour. Keep the embellished theme going with diamond-encrusted ((faux, of course) mules and diamond earrings for the complete Christmas package.

This stunning satin number from Mango at €35.95

Focusing again on the shorter length, this satin-finish dress from Mango, below, is a really fun way to introduce short hemlines to a formal setting. The long sleeve and shoulder puff are a sophisticated and classy combination. Similarly, the soft purple colour and shiny finish are equally appetizing.
