‘Tis the season for winter wonderland weddings and all the magical charm that comes along with the special event. During this time of year it’s absolutely acceptable to wear something a little fancier. There’s nothing quite like an effortlessly glamorous velvet dress or showing up in a stylish sequin number. Aren’t we right? So, if you’re attending your neighbors nuptials in the months of November through February and looking for a refreshing take on winter wedding guest attire, look no further!
We love a luxe velvet dress moment during the holiday season. Not only is it perfect for winter fashion, but it’s a bit warmer than your traditional dress. Because let’s face it, wintertime in the Rockies typically calls for snow and freezing temperatures. Whether you’re an all-black-always kind of girl or want to embrace the bold, emerald toned look, we’ve found a dress that totally enhances your vibe. Feeling a bit spicy? Opt for a red dress for an extra festive touch!
