Kate K popped this into the Suggestion Box:
I am at that age where everyone I know is getting married and so thus, I go to about four or five (or six or seven!) weddings a year. I have no problem dressing myself in every other arena of my life but when it comes to weddings, I’m stumped. I have no idea what fabrics are appropriately dressy enough or if I need take time of the wedding into consideration, and I always look back on what I wore and wish I’d worn something else. I’d love some tips on wedding wear!

There are as many ways to dress stylishly for holiday parties as there are women, and I’m always loathe to dish out specific outfit advice. BUT! Since holiday parties require a certain level of fancy, and since fancy and warm seldom go hand in hand, I am more than willing to offer up a few ideas for keeping warm while looking gussied.
Long sleeves OR long skirt
In most cases, long sleeves and a long skirt will feel like an awful lot of coverage. Some dresses balance both beautifully, but more options will do one or the other well. Floor-length dresses are considered to be formal, so if you’re attending a black-tie event or charity auction or similarly fancy affair, going maxi will keep you warm and help you feel appropriately attired. If it’s a less formal, cocktail-or-below event, long sleeves and a shorter skirt can work just as well.
