We have been getting many inquiries about what to wear to weddings, now that the chilly weather is upon us. So we put together a portrait perfect ensemble for a wedding, followed by an evening reception and dancing into the wee hours. This look would also be appropriate for an evening wedding when you are not in the mood for a long dress. Of course we avoid white, or shades close to white, red or other attention grabbing colors – remember this is the brides day. And never black, except in the evening when the wedding is Black Tie. We looked for a rich fabric and shade that can shimmer in the candlelight and in a comfortable style that look terrific through hours of celebration.
Talbot Runhof is brilliant at designing dresses that flatter every age and body type and this shade is hypnotic. This Talbot Runhoff Off-the-Shoulder Ruched Cocktail Dress $1450 is an investment piece that is perfect to wear to holiday cocktails, weddings and other festive events. This style is universality flattering with the broad sweetheart neckline , adjustable cap sleeves and the gently gathers. While the lady-like length is very much on trend, the dress would looks just as stunning hemmed as short as you legs and lifestyle allows. We had some fun with a retro matchy-matchy look of dress up shoes, a la Showtimes Masters of Sex, in Manolo Blahnik Hangisi Satin Pump $965, but if that is not to your liking, the alternative is a spectacular pair of Jimmy Choos Abel Glitter Pointed Pump $595. To accessorize we kept it cool with the subdued patina of Alexis Bittar Nova Sphere Crystal Clip Earrings $375, Alexis Bittar Pave Crystal Snake Bangle $295, and a fabulous clutch Alice + Olivia Be Jeweled Embellished Clutch Bag $465. The textures from the sexy, smooth satin of the dress to the pebbled surfaces of the accessories, create a subtle drama of style and sophistication.
