What to wear to a winter wedding?

  • Invest in nice shoes, coat and handbag which represent your fashion taste. Do not save money in the classic black high heal and quilted leather bag.

Your shoes, bag and coat will reveal your hand right away. Spend your money here. – Nina Garcia

  • Get a great coat and make sure it’s attractive. It’s worthwhile to invest into a classic wool coat with standard colors, but it would be more fun with bright colors or distinct pattern which can make you stand out.
