Hi. I'm Hillary Cooper, a New York-based fashion stylist that's here to talk to you about ways in which to wear wraps with your winter wedding dress or to a winter wedding. A great idea I find, is to use mixed fabrics. The velvet on this wrap is terrific because it really will insulate you and provide warmth, while the silk is great and versatile and could be made in any color. It could be white for a winter white wedding or if you are the bride, you could actually do white velvet on one side and white silk on the other. My friend Gorgio at New York custom makes these for her clients and she finds them an invaluable piece. The other thing is you can go to a tailor and you can choose a bolt of fabric of velvet, any color that you'd like and in silk any color that you'd like. And just have him tether the ends. That's really the best way to do this. And it's an inexpensive piece that will be a life saver. There's no reason to be cold. And you'll never be chilly at a wedding if it's drafty or air conditioned. You also don't need a winter coat. That really tends to ruin the look of course of a bridal dress or a bridesmaid's dress. Or even to be one of the guests at the affair. If you're just going right from the car or in to the event, you don't really need more than something like this. It just needs to be kind of big. If you're afraid about being cold the size of this makes all the difference in the world. Draped over your shoulder, thrown over one shoulder, a great piece for every women to have, especially at a wedding. The other idea I have for this is a piece of vintage fabric. This came from my husband's grandmother's dress. And it's bugle beads from the 1920s. But it's such an interesting piece because it's got a great color shimmer to it. And it looks terrific over metallics. It would look wonderful over a white wedding dress. Or it could add a great deal of pizazz to a black dress that somebody might be wearing as a guest to one of the affairs. And it's terrific this way too because it could also have silk on the other side of it, the reverse side. So you'll get a little bit of comfort and warmth but you'll also get a great individual unique piece that you'd be able to wear over and over again. These are my ideas for winter wedding wraps.
