Need some help finding the right Winter wedding guest outfit? Follow our guide to styling a Winter wedding guest outfit and you’ll look simply amazing at your next Winter wedding.

The best dresses to wear to a Winter wedding!

Style is always changing, and so too wedding guest dresses styles. But when it comes to choosing the right dress to wear as a Winter wedding guest, we say stick to the classics! A beautiful long dress, or long-sleeved mini or midi dress is the way to go here. Alternatively, go for a stylish jumpsuit, for a slightly out-of-the-box outfit idea. Go for pieces that have some extra special touches, such as ruffles, sheer sleeves, a great print or a metal belt. When choosing a printed dress for a Winter wedding it’s important to choose a print that’s Winter appropriate, think moody colours and graphic prints. We also recommend staying away from cute & bright ditsy florals and instead veering towards a bold & dark floral print for a print that is in keeping with the drama and moodiness of the Winter season.

Winter wedding guest suits

When in doubt, wear a suit! Probably the easiest fashion and style motto to remember. A women’s suit always looks flattering, on-trend, and put together, plus, it looks like you’ve put in loads of effort too, even though you’ve only really put together two pieces that were meant to be worn together in the first place! Still, it’s one of our favourite dressy outfits for any and every occasion. When choosing a suit to wear to a wedding, it’s worth checking whether there's a specific dress code or colour scheme for the event.  As a pretty hard and fast rule, one should never wear white as a wedding guest, so definitely steer clear of white, cream or beige suits, but generally, the guests should also try to avoid wearing the colours of the wedding party. For a Winter wedding it’s acceptable to wear a black suit, but we prefer thinking outside the box when it comes to the colour of your suit for a Winter wedding guest outfit. We love a jewel toned women’s suit, and a deep purple, emerald green or fuschia pink suit would look amazing as a Winter wedding guest outfit!

Winter wedding guest outfit idea: co-ords

Sticking with the two-piece Winter wedding guest outfit suggestions, a matching co-ord set or skirt and blouse combo would work really well at your next wedding. A matching co-ord adds a relaxed but stylish edge to your outfit, while a mix and match two-piece combo allows you to introduce different materials, finishes, colours and/or prints to the top and bottom part of your Winter wedding guest outfit. A flowy blouse looks great when paired with a wrap skirt or high waisted pants, while a billowing skirt looks amazing styled with a more structured top or stylish turtleneck. A satin top and skirt combo has to be one of our favourite Winter wedding guest outfits, as satin adds a luxurious statement to your occasion wear while a skirt adds a little flirtiness to your look. Style with tights and sparkly heels and you’re ready to have the time of your life at your next Winter wedding.

Accessorising your Winter wedding guest look

When accessorising your Winter wedding guest outfit, start with a beautiful pair of knee-high, heeled leather boots or, if you’re feeling brave, a pair of open toed heeled sandals (preferably metallic to add some shine & twinkle to your outfit!). If you’re planning on hitting the dancefloor hard at this Winter wedding, make sure your heels are at least semi-comfortable, although who are we to blame you if you choose to wear a pair of heels that looks absolutely amazing with your outfit, but is hella uncomfortable, just take them off once you hit the dancefloor! We promise you won’t be the only one! As always, an outfit -whatever the occasion- isn’t complete without some perfectly chosen jewellery pieces. If you’re wearing a low-neck V dress or top, choose a long necklace to draw attention to your elongated neck, add some dangly statement earrings and you’ve got yourself a perfectly styled Winter wedding guest outfit!
