As if it wasn’t easy task enough to dress for a wedding as it is, thanks to the temperatures taking a dive, we now have to reconsider our entire look for when we toast to newlyweds in mid-December. When it comes to beating the wind chill while still being the most stylish party guest, it is essential to consider lengths. Yes, those of your sleeves and of your hem. To avoid a complicated dressing formula when you choose a mini dress and then have to worry about tights, or favor a strapless silhouette and have to ultimately cover up most of the time; simplify by opting for a romantic, floor-length gown with an interesting deĢcolletage for added allure or a long-sleeved, open back style that will carry timeless allure.

And because it’s a party after all, you can sure play conceal-reveal with your frock and be both sexy and sophisticated; think sheer panels, strategically placed cut-outs, sheer lace inserts of sleeves that will delicately allow some skin to peak from underneath, a fantastic way to combine all of the above is a billowing, one-sleeved silhouette or consider a dressy suit in a more daring color and glam it up with embellished heels and a pair of statement earrings. In terms of the color palette, now would be the time to embrace jewel-tones like burgundy or emerald so as to to forgo the pastel hues we all know too well on an occasion like this. Luxe textures such as rich velvet as well as intricate surface work in the form of embroidery or opulent brocade will reflect the light and double perfectly at another party this holiday season.
