1. Warmer fabrics
The most common winter wedding styling hack is to opt for outfits made with warmer fabrics. Velvet, satin, velveteen, brocade, and silk are some of the most sought after fabrics that are going to not just look good but make you feel comfy too in the chilly weather.
2. Pay attention to sleeves
Having your outfits done in three-fourth or full sleeves is something that you should be opting for. And no, they aren’t old fashioned or outdated. With truckloads of experimentation going on in the outfits industry, you’ll have a lot of fancy sleeve designs to choose from.
3. Avoid dry skin
Our skin tends to get dry in the winter, which is why it is important to keep it moisturized and hydrated so that the wedding makeup doesn’t get uncomfortable to wear. Use a moisturizer regularly, exfoliate, and keep your lips soft and supple.
4. Dewy Makeup
While we prefer using all things matte in summer or monsoon weddings, winter is the time when we can choose dewy makeup without the fear of having it melting down. A hydrating primer, a dewy base and a more flushed and rich makeup can be worn without any hassles for a winter wedding.
5. The stole glam
Carrying a beautiful stole is not going to dull down your outfit’s charm and instead it’s only going to add a unique edge to it while keeping you warm. Whether you’re a bride or bridesmaid, carry a stunningly embellished or simplistic stole in plush fabrics like pashmina, velvet, or cashmere over your outfits. Brideys, if you’re opting for double dupattas with your bridal lehenga, replace one of them with a gorgeous matching stole that you can have draped all over you.
6. Thermals & linings
Wearing thermal leggings beneath your flared pants, your lehenga skirt or sarees is going to protect you from the chilly weather. Furthermore, if you’re wearing no peek-a-boo suits or dresses, a thermal slip underneath is gonna keep you all warm and cozied up.
On the other hand, you can have your suits and blouses lined with warm fabrics like satin, flannel or pashmina if you can’t wear thermals.
7. Outfits with pockets
There isn’t any outfit (even the bridal lehenga) that you can’t get pockets stitched in basically. For when your hands would be freezing and you’d want a little warmth, slipping your hands into the pockets is gonna feel no less than heavenly.
8. The color palette
Be it metallics, pastels, or bold and bright hues, while brides and bridesmaids are wearing all the colors in all the seasons, somehow, the fact that winters are for bold and solid hues still exists. Colors like marsala, wine, burgundy, brown, midnight blue, bottle green, deep purple, etc., are all perfect for winter weddings and there’s no doubt about that.
9. Jackets to the rescue
Outfits accessorized with capes, long shrugs or jackets isn’t a new trend and in fact has been ruling the fashion industry for a long time now. Be it the chic indo-western outfits, the dresses, lehengas or sarees, they can be paired up with anything.
10. Layer it up
If you’re a fan of layering then you already know how winters are the best for that. Layering up your outfits and jewellery anyway looks stylish and it’s also going to keep you all warm and cozy without having you worry about sweating profusely.
11. Fancy up with boots & sneakers
You know how women wedding footwear isn’t restricted to just heels and juttis anymore. Right from embroidered sneakers to bejewelled boots, flaunting unconventional looks with shoes is a total game-changer for both brides and bridesmaids.
12. Best time for open hairstyles
While you dread wearing open hair in summer and monsoon weddings, winters are the best time for letting your hair down. So even if you’re a bride and want a unique bridal look, flaunt your hair open easily without running the risk of it being spoiled because of sweat and humidity.
