Q – I’m getting married next February and want a dress that will keep me warm and still be stylish. Do you have any suggestions?
A – "February is a complex month. At this time of year, we look forward to spring and want to steer clear of any festive, autumnal looks. That being said, it’s an exciting time to embrace all that bridal fashion has to offer. There are lots of options available that are fashion-forward yet practical.
"Statement sleeves are popular right now. Long, full, blouson sleeves in tulles, organzas, delicate flocked spots and lace all feature heavily this coming season.
"Sleeves can be made detachable to create a different look for the evening.
"Capes are a stylish option and will effortlessly cup your shoulders while also adding warmth.
"Look for light, sheer fabrics that with surface texture.
"There are also an array of shrugs and jackets available in interesting fabrics ranging from tassels to more traditional laces. These separates will allow you to customise your look from the day to evening."
