Dazzle with sequins
In general, when we hear winter, we think of Christmas. When we think of Christmas, on the other hand, we think of bright lights and festive mood. And nothings brings the festive mood in an outfit more than sequins. Whether you choose to go for understated black shiny dress, or you want to go all out in silver sequin dress, all eyes will be on you. If, however, you are not willing to commit to an all sequin dress, you can choose one with small details around the waist or neckline. That way, not only are you going to shine, but you are also going to look very classy and elegant.
Sequins bring the festive mood
Pink is the color of love
Pink, in my opinion, is an under appreciated color. First of all, it looks good in any season. Second of all, it is such a romantic, understated color, which makes every woman who wears it look elegant and gorgeous. Since white is absolutely out of the question for a wedding guest dress, pink is the closest you can get without making the bride angry. The good news is pink can also be paired with many different colors when it comes to shoes and accessories.

Keep it floral
While floral prints are usually reserved for spring/summer dresses, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t wear them during the winter. It is important to note that flowers are a must have at any wedding. Whether it is table decor, or the bride’s and bridesmaids’ bouquets, flowers are everywhere at weddings. That is exactly why, winter wedding guest dresses with floral motifs are absolutely welcomed in the 2020/2021 fashion trends. So, don’t be afraid to dress up in a floral dress yourself.
If the dress code allows for a more casual outfit, pair your dress with stylish boots for extra warmth
Dark greens are a must for the winter season
If you want to keep things simple, but look stunning at the same time, look no further than the dark green hues. Green, in general is such a stylish and elegant color. Even a monochromatic dress in this colors can be an absolute winner when it comes to best dressed wedding guest. When you pair the color with an interesting dress shape, then you have yourself the perfect outfit.
