Winter wedding style

Yes, it might be a few degrees above freezing, but there’s no denying that winter weddings are pretty damn beautiful. Who needs blazing, sweat-under-your-dress sunshine when you have twinkling candlelight and luxe layers? Luckily, when it comes to dressing for the big day, the long-sleeved, high-neck dress has turned into one of this season’s biggest hits. Warm? Check. Stylish? Check. No need to fake tan? Count us in.

There are plenty of options available when it comes to AW17’s fave dress style. A winter wedding calls for silk, velvet and muted shades. Marks and Spencer’s constellation print dress has been a hit with the Instagram crowd and looks considerably more expensive than its £45 price tag. & Other Stories’ velvet wrap dress is another winner – the softly plunging neckline and waist-cinching silhouette is perfect for bigger busts.

For something a little less Little House on the Prairie, look to Zara’s mandarin collar silk dress, which give its wearer serious style credentials. Or, if you’re looking for something a little more slinky, Frame’s spice-coloured slip will surely satisfy. All it needs is a feather cape thrown over the top.
