Whether you are in a wedding or just attending one as a guest, stylish accessories are a great way to add polish to your attire. Tried and true wedding classics are lovely, but by adding a few accents from the most current trends in fashion, you can really make your look stand out. Take a look at how the bride, bridesmaids, or wedding guests can include some of the most stylish accessories into their outfits for fall and winter weddings.
Shoes make the outfit, as we all know. The hottest looks in shoes right now are rounded toes. It could be a metallic flat or a platform with a stacked heel – if the toe is round, it will look very chic. A huge bonus is that round toe shoes are infinitely more comfortable than their pointy toe counterparts, which will make those long hours during the ceremony or on the dance floor much more enjoyable.
Charming embellishments like flowers or bows on the toe of the shoes give them an extra special character. The bride will be on trend with a classic white or ivory silk ballet flat, or she can choose a soft ballet pink shoe for a subtle hint of color. For bridesmaids or wedding guests, a metallic pewter heel with a slight platform and a rounded toe would be the height of fashion and is neutral enough to wear with any color dress.
Big jewelry is very popular right now. Take advantage of this trend by choosing wedding jewelry with large baubles, multiple layer necklaces, and mixed chain, pearl, and crystal sets. For the bride, this trend can provide a wonderful inspiration for updating traditional family jewelry.
Add a pearl tin cup necklace and a crystal strand to her mom’s strand of pearls, and she will have the best of both worlds: wedding jewelry with sentimental meaning and a fresh contemporary flair. Wedding guests can have fun with unique bib necklaces featuring large crystals and pearls (real or faux), and the bridesmaids will look marvelous in chunky Swarovski crystal cluster necklaces.
Fur collars, both real and faux, are making a reappearance this fall. This is a trend which would be particularly elegant for a wedding guest. For a stylish daytime look, update a cashmere sweater or wrap dress with a gray fur collar tied loosely at the neck. It is the perfect way to make your go-to outfit for daytime weddings look new and different. Wear your hair up in one of the elegant low twists that are so popular to really showcase the fur collar. In the evening, the collar would be a stunning accent to a long v-neck silk dress, or worn over your coat for a grand entrance.
There are plenty of other fun current trends in accessories that can be used to add spice to your wedding attire. Whether it is a fabulous fake cocktail ring for a bridesmaid, a pair of leopard print heels for the bride’s grandmother (why not?!), or a luxe silk sash wrapped around the waist of a dress, a trendy accent is the perfect way to give any wedding outfit a fresh, chic style. Have fun playing with accessories to update your look!
