Stylishly snug

Stylishly snug

Q. We're planning a November wedding so it's going to be cold. Can you help me decide what I should wear that'll keep me warm without sacrificing style?

A. Cathy Smyth says: Cathy says: Being cold could show in your photos so consider a dress with sleeves and maybe in a heavier fabric like crepe. If sleeves aren't your thing then ramp up the accessories. For the rockier bride you could opt for a leather jacket, the more rustic wedding could lend itself to a denim version or get your groom to be a gent and give you his jacket!

Traditional brides could opt for a faux fur wrap; bolero, shawl or pashmina and snuggly capes are very on-trend for 2020.

If it's your dream to be outside a lot on your day keep your hands warm with a muff or pair of gloves and the last thing to think about is underwear. You can keep yourself toasty warm with some thermal undies – not the most sexy but worth it to keep you comfortable.
