This was followed by a funny email conversation all about how completely bizarre it is to enforce a dress code on wedding guests. Especially one that involves wearing the two colors you are absolutely not supposed to wear to a wedding. But - no matter how strange the demand - a good guest does as they are told:I'm invited to a wedding at the beginning of April in the city in Denver, Colorado. I'll be speaking at the wedding, so I need to put a little thought into this.
The bride has requested that everyone wear black and white. Since the wedding ceremony is outside in a park, and early April could still be very chilly, I need a creative way to work the requested uniform.
I have tons of black coats (including a vintage 50s leather coat with fur collar) but how do I work it in a chic way? Would love your help.
Dress - A black and white pattern is the best way to go. This dress is absolutely darling. A bit of a splurge at $210 even at 40% off. There is also this, somewhat lesser dress for $100.
Boots - For warmth. Paired with tights depending on how cold it is. In the summer, trade the boots for adorable red flats or pumps.
Gloves - Elbow length in gray cashmere.
Coat - Go to town with the best (and warmest) your closer has to offer.
Have a great time at the wedding!
