It seems like we have an endless list of weddings to attend these days, which means we’re constantly in need of some serious style advice. Thankfully, Ilana Stern, Founder and CEO of Weddington Way, an online boutique filled with gorgeous wedding party style picks, is sharing her wisdom with us all week long.
The all black look is as much of a mainstay in the fashion world as white dresses are for brides—classic, timeless, and flattering on almost everyone. We saw head-to-toe black in a number of Spring 2013 Ready-to-Wear shows including the likes of Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy and Stella McCartney, and we think this trend would be great for a winter wedding!
This LBD bridesmaid dress by Wtoo is perfect for a black-themed wedding, and makes it easy to transition from ceremony to celebration afterwards. Pair it with gold accents like these jet black and gold drop earrings, gold bangles, and a sparkly little star necklace by Dogeared.
Even if you live somewhere sunny, who couldn’t use a little help for adding color to bare legs in the winter? These self-tanner wipes by Comodynes are easy to use, and will leave you looking like you just got back from a sunny getaway.
For the perfect eye, start with a base layer of this decadent gold cream eye color by Shiseido—it glides on like a liquid, but stays put all night. Finish it off by lining your lids with NARS’ smoky black shadow, that’s accented with flecks of gold, for the perfect amount of sultry shimmer.
