Dressy Winter Wedding Outfits

Winter Wedding Outfits for Women in their 50's, 60's, & 70's.

Winter Weddings for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Dressy Version

Quote of the day: “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more.  If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”  – Oprah Winfrey

Weddings can come around at any time of year, including in the winter, thus we might as well be somewhat prepared with an outfit that would work for the occasion. I’m definitely not of the mindset that we should go buy a new dress for every invitation we receive!

And the challenge at this time of month, is the fact that it’d be nice to not freeze our tookus off either! I always say it’s easier for men when it’s cold, because they throw on their sports jacket. Whereas, so many women’s dresses are sleeveless—even for the winter months! Silly, I say! So I layered us up for this category. Even though it’s dress up time, I figure we can still wear layers and look great!

Check out our how outfits for the same event only wearing pants here! And make sure you let me know what you style for this time of year!

Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: Confession time….I just recently purchased this flower garment. Not that I needed anything, but we were supporting small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It’s like nothing I have in my closet, so I decided to challenge myself. My first thought was to wear it over white like I’m showing. However, when I put it away in my closet, it hung next to my navy sweater dress, and I think it might look better over that one!

I felt like the outfit needed a darker color with it, so I added in my brown pumps. For some reason, I still wasn’t happy, so I tried the flower pin. But really I think it comes down to the turtleneck of the dress—maybe it’s too much?

My mom made the flower pin for me with leftover material from one of her dresses that she shortened. There’s a normal brown button in the middle, so I added a button cover on top for some shine.

The clutch was my grandmother’s purse from many, many moons ago. And yes, I’m wearing fishnet stockings. I bought them over 3 years ago and they are my go-to’s in the cold weather. Sometimes I even wear a nude pair underneath them. They don’t seem to snag as easily as my other hose!

Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: I had Nancy recycle one of her dresses that she’s worn before on the blog. We styled it here, for a summer wedding event.

I figured Nancy could layer one of her pretty jackets over this dress and stay appropriate and warm for the occasion! Since it’s winter, the shoe of choice was her black, suede wedges. And yes, she’s wearing nude hosiery!

Of course we had to include jewelry. The pendant is actually a blue glass that matches the earrings, but it really looks black in these photos.

I think the ruching on this dress makes it so darn flattering! And, of course, Frosty the snowman thought so too!!

Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit: For mom’s dressy, wedding outfit, I chose another longer silhouette. This silver sleeveless duster is one that she made many years ago.

We layered the duster over a black dress. This dress was the one that Nancy wore for our series about maxi dress posts, here. However, on mom, it’s really more of a midi length. But since it’s only short sleeved, we also added a black turtleneck under it. Talk about layering, huh?

I thought it’d be nice to add in a little bit of color, so she’s wearing more of her garnet collection. The earrings, brooch and bracelets are all part of her assortment of goodies!

Sparkle and shine are perfect to pull out for these special occasions. You can see in the close up photo that the buttons on the duster have some sparkle to them. The shoes also have some rhinestones on the back of the heel.

  • Kathleen McDermott

    Pretty looks. I love your crocheted overlay, Nancy’s sapphire dress and Charlotte’s elegant vest (the buttons are sparkly little treasures). Your heels are stunning – I wish I could wear them, but I have no practice walking in beautiful heels and would likely break both ankles!

    • I think walking in heels is all practice, Kathleen!! Heck, my mom still does it!!
      But at least there are some nice flats too!!

  • Tina von tinaspinkfriday

    You all look so fabulous Jodie. Pst I felt in love with Frosty the snowman;)
    Happy Monday, Tina

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Tina!!
      And who doesn’t love Frosty??!! 🙂

  • These are such beautiful styles for each age range. 🙂
    It’s always hard to figure out what to wear to a wedding in the colder months! These are great!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Jackline!!

  • Melissa

    Love it! You girls look amazing for your winter wedding. The add flower definitely made it pop!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Mel!!

  • PetiteOver40

    Jodie, I actually LOVE what you did with your dress! The layering is just perfect. When I saw your post on FB, I immediately wanted to get a closer look of what the dress was made of and how you were wearing it–and I’m so glad I did! It just looks so lovely! Rather than be a dark winter outfit, it has this lovely lightness to it, but it’s still warm and cozy. I would wear brown with it as you did, but what about taking it even lighter (like fresh fallen snow?) with nude or pink? Navy (as you mentioned) and red and the burgundy of the flower you added–it just seems like there are lots of options with this. Can you tell with my ramblings how in love I am with this outfit???? 😍

    I also love how the design on Nancy’s jacket mimics the ruching on her dress! It just pulls everything together.

    And, for your mom’s outfit–you just can’t go wrong with an all-black base and a silverish duster. She looks beautiful as always!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks for making me feel so good about this outfit, Sherry!!
      I ended up wearing it last Friday for date night with my lighterweight white sweater dress & OTK olive green boots (it had snowed the day before). I love your idea of pairing it with pink—maybe I’ll do that for our collab?
      Thanks for the lovely compliments for Nancy & mom too—they get such pleasure out of reading them!!

  • i am Zoe Watson

    I always love your posts showing clothes for different ages. They make it seem so easy to pull an outfit together!

    Thanks so much for posting your blog post to the #FanDayFriday Link Party! I hope you have a great experience with the link party and come back again next week! #fdflinkparty

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks for the kind words —I think it gets easier to put together outfits the more you do it and analyze it. But there are many times after the photos are taken that I don’t love the looks—but luckily it’s only clothing!!

  • Nice looks, Jodie. I especially like that you are wearing nude hose for a bare look in the winter. I have never understood this thing of frozen naked legs in the middle of the winter-guess I am just to old school.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Me, too—I’m very old school.
      But I also remember not being as cold when I was younger because I remember both my mom & grandma always saying things like “aren’t you cold in that” and I wasn’t. So maybe it’s also a youth thing???
      I just saw a younger girl at the grocery store in a short sequin dress & open toe sandals—and I had a fur stole wrapped around me!!

  • Rosy Flynn

    I really like all of these outfits, you all always look so well put together. I love the way you used a button cover to add sparkle 🙂

    The creme and light blue seem like a winter wonderland color scheme, but i do think the chunky turtleneck might be too much perhaps a thinner one? . The brown touches were a smart move. Nancy’s dress with the ruching is wonderful and her jacket is fabulous. I am not sure I love the black dress being longer than the showstopper duster (so impressed she made that!). I do like how creative these are because I wouldn’t have thought to do anything other than Nancy’s with a jacket over a dress,lol .

    • Jodie Filogomo

      So I ended up wearing this blue tunic over my thinner white sweater dress last night for date night. Since it’s short sleeved, I wore a white shirt under it. And I think it was much better! I still want to try it with other colors beneath it, and see how it looks!!
      Now that you say that about the duster & black dress, I want to try it with a shorter dress. I see what you’re saying, so it makes the duster really stand out!
      Thanks for your thoughts Tracey!!

  • I love the fact htat you, your Mom, and your stepmother are all friends! Thanks for using real life, mature women!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Melinda!
      I figure that fashion isn’t only for models! We all have to get dressed in something everyday, so might as well look nice!!
      Thanks so much for stopping by!

  • Amy D. Christensen

    I love what you do with clothes, Jodie. All of your outfits work quite well. I do think you are right about the flower dress you have on, it would look quite nice paired over a dark blue or even dark gray or black. You all look beautiful and warm!! So important in this weather, especially at a wedding! – Amy

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Amy!!

  • Great collection of outfits for winter weddings! I admire each woman for selecting pieces that they already have or shopped for by supporting local businesses. Each outfit is classy and showcases the style of each woman.


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Brooke!

  • Happy New Year! Such great winter wedding looks. The turtleneck layered under the dress is genius! These are definitely great to wear! x

      Thanks so much Ann-Marie!

  • What a unique dress. Love the fringe on it. And I think the turtleneck is perfect with it!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Laura! I’m going to wear it tonight for date night—and see if I can come up with a different look!!

  • Wow!!!!
    This is brilliant. I love your dress collection.
    You ladies rock😘😘
    I really like Nancy’s dress and jacket 😎
    Blessings to you

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much! I appreciate the kind words!

  • Charlotte’s look with the duster vest worn over the top is my favorite. These are trending right now, and while I like them, I’m not sure how to style them. I’ll add this to my folder of outfit inspiration! I think it looks chic and luxe, and the long length is so practical and warm for wintertime.

    I also like your lace floral shift. It’s truly a statement piece. I struggle to style florals and whites in the wintertime since my tastes are so springy. I still want the look to feel on-season. I know you have some hesitations with your styling, but I think you did great for such a tricky garment and post theme. Rather than adding warm hues like browns and deep purples, maybe try gray? I think gray tights and suede booties would be cute with it, even with the white turtleneck. And I think your navy sweater dress would work well with the gray as well. And I suppose you could try navy tights and do boots in gray. So many ideas to play with! I hope you have fun and not frustration styling it next time!

    <3 Liz

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I know what you mean about the duster vest—I wouldn’t have thought about them much for winter, before blogging. But now that I love my turtlenecks again, and I’ve started layering vests over jackets—I think it’s great!
      The idea of pairing this tunic with grey is brilliant Liz! I don’t often think of evaluating the piece on whether it’s a warm or cool shade, so OMG, I’m so going to do that more! I think when you said that it was a V-8 moment (or in younger terms, an AHA moment!!)
      I think sometimes, when I first get a new item, I end up having to play around with it before I really feel comfortable in it! Thanks for being so helpful! I may try to wear it on date night tonight—just to practice so different outfits with it!!

  • Loving all 3 of these looks!

      Thanks Keri!!

  • Fabulous winter wedding looks. You all look cozy and warm, yet appropriately dressed for the occasion!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Amy!!

  • Babies to Bookworms

    It’s so hard to dress for winter formal events! These look fabulous!’

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Vicki!!

  • These are all great winter wedding looks! I love the turtleneck layered under the dress!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Annessa!!

  • I hate the snow!!!! I think we might get some here today! I am such a fan of your mothers outfits! This one is so elegant and makes her look so tall! Great looks! Happy weekend Jodie.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks for giving mom a boost, Nancy!! She’ll so enjoy reading your comment!!

  • Judy Gramith

    It’s been below zero for a few days here in Minnesota and I doubt that many couples in my state seriously consider winter weddings. I’ve never been to one. I’m sure they happen a lot in warmer climates and even in Colorado where your winters are milder than here.
    Your new lace and fringe tunic is so pretty! I like the way it looks over white but I feel like there’s too much weight and texture in the cables and heavy t-neck with the lighter feeling lace/fringe of the tunic. A plain, pattern free, knit , white dress would be great! The blue and white gives a pretty wintry feel. Silver tights and shoes would be cool too.
    Nancy’s outfit has a dressy, professional vibe. Like you, I love the side ruffle. The plaid of the jacket gives the outfit a less dressy feel.
    Charlotte’s silver/grey and black combo is very couture looking. Boy what a versatile piece that sleeveless duster is!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      That’s amazing that you’ve never been to a winter wedding.
      Besides mine (is was Valentine’s Day—so that’s still winter in my head), I can think of at least 3 others off the top of my head! But maybe you’re right…maybe it’s because of the different climates.
      I do think you’re right about the heaviness of the sweater dress. I can’t wait to try this tunic over a different dress or outfit and see if it looks better!
      Thanks for always including mom & Nancy in your comment. I try to always forward their comments to them, so they can read the kind words!!

  • Terri Webster Schrandt

    I really like how these look! Appropriate for a winter wedding or event!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Terri!!

  • Winter weddings can be tough to dress for!! These are definitely great to wear!!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Joti!!
      But sometimes it’s fun to have the challenge in the winter. In the summer you can only wear one layer, so it’s not as fun!! 🙂

  • Laura

    I am always trying to layer more clothing because I am always so cold, so I love all the layers of your mom’s outfit. I typically reach for my fleece tights in winter, but your idea of nude underneath another pair is a great idea!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Yes, but I’m still really thinking about those fur lined ones, Laura!!
      But I’m always cold too, so I even layer an old pair of hose under my jeans in the winter!

  • Nicole Mölders

    Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. Great inspirations.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Nicole!!

  • You look really pretty in this outfit! I love your makeup and that you kept it to a minimum with this outfit! It looks all Wintery! I love the duster and jacket to cover the dress and how it would add a layer for warmth! You all look beautiful!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Ruth!!
      I’ll forward this wonderful comment to both mom & Nancy. It always make them smile when they get compliments!!

  • Your dress is so unique, Jodie! Wow! I love it. All you ladies look fabulous for a winter wedding! This was such a great post!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Lindsey!!

  • Lovely winter wedding looks!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Michelle!!

  • Lauren Blair .

    Weddings definitely come at all times of year! I for sure have been to SEVERAL winter weddings, so what a great idea for a post!! I loved all 3 outfits, and I especially love the floral dress! Winter can be a time for florals, especially with that icy blue so that was perfect! XO

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Lauren!! I really want to try this tunic over some other options and see if I like it even more!!

  • Carrie @ Curly Crafty Mom

    That flower garment you are wearing is so pretty, love the criss cross too in the front neckline. And, how sweet your mom made a flower pin to go with it! Nancy’s jacket is so pretty- love the pattern of it. And, I love how your mom went with a long vest. I have one long vest in my closet (it is more for spring) and I really need to wear it more- I’ve worn it ONCE. 🙁


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much for such a nice comment Carrie!!
      I really like the longer vests lately….you just have to wear it more now!! I just wore my denim vest over a jacket since it’s been so cold!!

  • Mireille

    It is really fun to see how you wear the same clothes in several different ways: I always click on the links of previous ways you wore something. To challenge myself to create new outfits with my clothes, next week I will wear all skirts. My friend and I are taking daily pics of our outfits to help us get more creative with what we have in our closets.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Your comment made me so happy Mireille!!
      I do think that taking daily photos really helps. How fabulous you have a friend to do this with!! If you want to be part of the blog, I could include you as a blogette, like Jude did here: http://bit.ly/2cAeh3E. Just email me at jodie@jtouchofstyle.com and I’ll give you some options of upcoming themes for our posts!! I love to include others in this journey!!

  • I really like the fun 60’s vibe of your dress, and all your attention to little details like putting a button cover over the center of the flower. Layering up summery dresses for winter can be such a challenge!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Lydia!!
      I had to laugh when you referred to it as having a 60’s vibe. Usually my husband doesn’t like those items, and yet he picked this out for me!! I’m not going to tell him that though—I don’t want him to decide he doesn’t like it..ha ha!

  • You all look lovely! Love your layers and flower pin!

      Thanks so much Jill!
      My mom is going to be so happy that I’m wearing this pin! She has a ton of them!!

  • Living on Cloud Nine

    So much to love! I adore a duster over a dress, Nancy’s blue is so pretty and I love yours with the flower pin!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Andrea!

  • This is a really fabulous idea. And I love that blue dress, it’s beautiful …and compliments the winter season so well. Happy Thursday, from the Sincerely Paula linkup!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much for stopping over Megs!!

  • Penny @ pennyspassion.blogspot

    Love your outfit! The flower pin is a great pop of color. All the purses are fabulous too!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Penny!!

  • Everyone looks lovely! I really like the floral tunic you chose…and it definitely works for me over the ivory sweater dress. I think the fringe makes it look like it was meant to be.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Em!! It’s funny how when I actually put some of my pieces together, I don’t love them right away….I wonder if I have to see it a couple times first?
      I might like this tunic better when it’s over something not as thick? We’ll see!!
      Happy 2017!!
