When you can’t decipher wedding bells from jingle bells, it can only mean one thing —winter wedding season. With the shift in season comes an influx in wedding invites, leaving your closet calling out for more wedding guest outfits. But what to wear? From long sleeve gowns guaranteed to keep you warm and well-dressed, to red and purple hues that scream all things festive — we’ve got you and that bod covered. Let’s get into it.
Formal Winter Wedding Guest Dresses
Black tie? We got the memo. Turn heads in formal winter wedding guest dresses for those fancy fancy occasions. Think sensual slinky bodycon numbers that drape to the floor, flattering low-back maxis that accentuate the arch in your spine, and exaggerated bow details stepped straight off the catwalk. Excuse us, you dropped your jaw.
Winter Cocktail Dresses for Women
When the dress code falls between smart casual and black tie formal, check out our selection of winter cocktail dresses for women. Traditionally a cocktail dress is cut as a flirty mini (usually above the knee), and is designed for parties, so ideal for those evening-only invites. Our favorites? One shoulder styles are a noughties trend back with a bang. A sequin mini also ticks all seasonally-appropriate boxes. Play around with strapless variations or, for our Nasty Gals with a larger bust, opt for straps and sleeves for additional support.
Long-Sleeve Dresses for Winter Wedding Guests
Keep yourself warm and comfortable on your journey from ceremony to reception in a long sleeve winter wedding guest dress. Practical — yes, but with no compromise on style. Balance modest long sleeves by dialling up the playfulness with a flattering side slit that elongates the leg, or cut-out details at the back or side. For something filled with a little more drama, opt for statement puff sleeves to rival your favorite ’80s icon, or feminine angel sleeves that add a touch of ’60s glamour.
Christmas Wedding Guest Dresses
Santa baby — this one’s all about the color. It’s not unusual for winter weddings to tie in a festive theme, and if that’s the case for your upcoming wedding, or hey — even if it’s not, scream ‘I love the holidays’ in a red, green, or gold Christmas wedding guest dress. For December weddings we love anything satin, or take it one step further and style a feather-embellished dress. Because if you can’t go big at Christmas, when can you?
Winter Wedding Outfits
If dresses aren’t your bag, we have a wide range of swoon-worthy premium tailoring to choose from. For your next winter wedding outfit, why not style an androgynous boxy black suit, made festive with a winter-approved feather trim. Or, choose a velvet textured blazer and pant suit set, in a bright and bold pink or a soft sage green. If getting down and dirty on the dancefloor is on the agenda, say ‘I do’ to a pantsuit that provides the practicality you need, while delivering on style.
