Winters are all about layering.
Have that elegant dress lying in your wardrobe that you’re contemplating on wearing to a chic Christian wedding but have your doubts about the sleeves? Layer your outfit by throwing in a blazer or a shrug in a bold color; I bet you can never go wrong with this and also keep the chill at bay.
Brocade + Velvet
The more you can mix fabric, the more fashion-forward you are; read this somewhere and I couldn’t have agreed more. For my final blog post in this series, I have chosen a fabric that’s probably every lady’s favorite – Brocade. This off-white beauty in brocade, that I got for a steal from Vero Moda – Marquee edition, has been lying in my wardrobe for over a year. It’s a sleeveless dress, with intricate embroidery around the waist. I love it for the fabric, the finish and the fit. To complete the formal look I chose a velvet blazer in ox-blood; the two colors and fabrics blend together to create a rich yet elegant look.
A pair of stilettoes in gold are a must have for a girl; but when you’re heading out to one of those weddings, throw a pair of your flats in the boot of your car, cos you never know who’d ask you for a dance that might last all night 🙂
Christian weddings always have me looking forward to the rock and rolling to old country songs. This is one of my favorites 🙂
Two is always better than one! Yeah?
Some trends come and go, but I’ve not seen anyone sporting the ‘Coordinated Separates‘ trend ever go awry. Taylor Swift has been rocking this trend for years now and looks super modish every single time.
Jacquard Velvet Separates
The second look that I’m featuring on my blog as part of the Winter Weddings series is my take on the ‘Coordinated Separates’ trend. This outfit would fit perfectly for a semi-formal wedding look.
For this look, I was inspired by one of Samantha Ruth Prabhu (now Akkineni)’s outfits that she posted on her Instagram. A subtle gold matching separates outfit in chevron and checks pattern. Ever since, I was on the lookout for something similar. Luckily enough, I stumbled upon this lovely olive-bronze pleated skirt from Kazo on Myntra and bought it without any second thoughts.
The jacquard and velvet blend of the fabric makes it a perfect choice for a formal winter wedding or even a pre-wedding ceremony. And who doesn’t love the houndstooth pattern? It comes with a boxy crop top in the same fabric with short flared sleeves.
The two are quite versatile pieces of clothing. If you are not a fan of matching separates, you could pair the top with a black skirt or palazzos in black or olive green. Give the boxy top a miss by teaming the skirt with a black or gold crop top and you’ll be able to pull off a whole new look. The basic black lace choker always helps me sassy up any outfit. I coupled it with an angel-wing detailed statement necklace and of course a mini sling to finish the look.

Rad All Day!
Got a winter wedding coming? It can become quite overwhelming to choose what to wear to a winter wedding. There are several things to consider while choosing a winter wedding guest dress, ranging from the formality of the affair, to your body type and personal style. You need to get the right balance between warmth and style this season. While putting together a winter wedding attire consider to include dark hues, rich (thick) fabrics and longer sleeves.
Velvet is a winner
Every so often you see an old style or fabric doing the come back. One such fabric that is back and here to rule the winters is the classic velvet. Velvet is always a winner when it comes to wedding wear in winter.
I’ve styled three different looks using a hint of velvet in each of them.
The first look I am donning is an ethnic one. A trend that’s been around for a while and is gonna stay is the crop top and lehenga. I’ve styled my ethnic outfit taking cues from this staple trend and experimenting a tad bit.
This uber chic yellow georgette lehenga is one of my best ethnic buys. I chucked the crop top and styled it with a polo neck velvet top (which in fact is a knee length body-con dress from Vero Moda). The length of the dress adds the extra warmth you would need under that flimsy sheer lehenga on a cold starry night.
I added the silver mirror choker to go with the gota lace detailing at the hem of the lehenga; it adds the extra edge to the otherwise plain look of the top. I must mention, I feel incomplete without a bag or a purse in my hand and hence I opted to wear my silver mini satchel to finish the look.
One of my all time favorite songs by Guns n Roses happens to have the most iconic video of all time featuring a really beautiful wedding. Who else loves this song?
