Winter Formal Ideas 2016

Monday, January 11, 2016
There are so many formal events that can take place during the winter but if you're someone who lives in a cold climate, how do you dress formal and keep warm at the same time? I always hated wearing a formal outfit but have it ruined by wearing a huge and puffy coat so I could keep warm. Here are the kind of outfits I would wear if I had to wear any kind of formal attire for let's say a wedding, semi-formal, etc.

Outfit 1

  • There are so many reasons I'm obsessed with this outfit. First of all, this isn't a dress, it's a gorgeous skirt and top. It's the perfect two-piece set that I have ever seen. The details on the back of the top is unique and you'll definitely be receiving compliments with it! I love how two-piece sets are so versatile. Since this is a winter formal post, I couldn't help myself by not adding a faux fur coat for this outfit.

  • Whenever I think of formal attire in the winter, I can't help but think of silver and metallics (I'm always thinking it'd look gorgeous at a winter ball, like Pretty Little Liar's Iceball). To keep up with the monochrome effect, I thought a grey coat and silver shoes would go perfect with this stunning dress from Sister Jane!

  • As much as I love colour, I do tend to lean more towards darker colours in the winter. I also understand how it's hard to wear dresses and skirts in colder climates so jumpsuits are always the way to go (I've probably said that before!). I love this one that I found from ASOS. What's great about them is that they're not tight fitting on the legs and it's not sheer in any way so you can probably wear a pair of leggings underneath for added warmth!

  • I am so weak for two-piece set. I swear you can wear them at any time of the year. What I love so much about this outfit is that they're simple items that you can wear all-year round (like the turtleneck top and ankle booties). You can easily dress up an outfit by adding jewelry. Bauble Bar is my favourite place to get jewelry because it has affordable and chic designs but also they have amazing customer service. I have had experiences when my jewelry pieces broke and they were quickly able to help.
  • Outfit Details
  • Blazer - ASOS
  • Top - Zara
  • Skirt - ASOS
  • Necklace - Bauble Bar
  • Shoes - H&M
  • Outfit 5

  • For the girl who loves colour no matter what season it is, this H&M dress is too cute for words. Wear some tights, over the knee boats and a simple peacoat and you're good to go!

  • Dress - H&M
  • Coat - H&M
  • Shoes - Aldo
