Ahh, the winter shrug is back. I got through almost a year with only a few winter “cover-up” posts (hereand here), but I couldn’t resist just one more for the winter season, because there are always more winter furs (and in today’s case a pretty knitted number – sixth photo) to choose from!
While I tend to prefer furs over other jackets, caplets, shawls etc. I don’t mind the fur color and style choices. But (and there is always a but), that doesn’t mean any shrug works for any bride..The key is to pick the right color for your skin (let’s face it, without spray tan we’re all a bit pale come the winter solstice), choosing a color that will look good with your groom, maids and palette choices, and finally, just pick a style for no other reason than you simply adore it.
Today I wanted an assortment of eye candy and inspiration and while you may not love all of these, I promise there is a little something for everyone… So with a long sleeve look (second, forth, and eighth photos) or the traditional capelet (tenth photo), knit and very vintage (sixth photo), or a bit more trendy (fifth photo) you can do a lot with the shrug for any winter affair!
Everyday we’re getting closer to fall which for us in NYC hopefully means cooler weather, and of course the start of a wonderful season of fall weddings! But before the fall really kicks off, we wanted to highlight some unique fall trends that I don’t see much at weddings but are so fun for this season!
Depending on where you’re having your wedding, the fall can be a funny time of the year. At least here in the New York area, fall can be very warm or even downright cold, but unless it’s steaming hot, a fall fur shrug is always the perfect accessory! What I love about shrugs in the fall (first photo) is that they’re unexpected! We all know that once winter rolls around, fur is always the “in” accessory but pulling it off in the fall makes it all the better! Next up, bridal party gifts! I love the two options below (third and last pictures) for the bridesmaids because they’ve both unique from Etsy sellers which means you won’t find them on too many other bridesmaids! Whether you prefer bracelets or necklaces, we’ve found both, and I love the little leaves giving them a fall look! As for the groomsmen gifts, these slippers and blankets are a fun and cozy gift for the guys (second photo). Our final thoughts on fall trends? This fabulous fall inspired drink bar with yummy fall ciders, and old bay flavored sunflower seed wedding favors! Happy fall!
Winter may be nearly over, but there is still plenty of time for a fabulous fur shrug! What better an accessory than a timeless, cozy, elegant piece (okay, you know you can always do faux fur if you’re an animal lover!!) If you’re thinking that fur is old fashioned or out of style, get that idea out of your head! A fur accessory will not only keep you warm on the coldest of wedding days; it looks absolutely incredible too!
I am in love with these shrugs! Each is used uniquely as a fashion piece (or winter coat). White, grey, brown, black, with or without sleeves, all of these brides have put a spin on the old fashioned fur and how amazing do they look…
