Casual Winter Wedding Outfits

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

Winter Wedding for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Not So Dressy Version

Quote of the day: “Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won’t come in.” Alan Alda

Am I making things up with this category? I got the eye roll from mom when I suggested a casual wedding. But I know they exist. I’ve read about them. But looking at our outfits, I’m not sure they really fit the bill for a casual winter wedding?

Even so, they are outfits and this is a fashion blog, so they can be future ideas, I suppose! And I seem to love this burgundy/red shade of toppers and print for all three of us! See how we styled our pants for a winter wedding, here, and wore our dressier garb for another time, here.

Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: My dress is from LuLaRoe. I have a friend who just started selling the brand, thus, I had to support her, right? I’ve been a fan of their clothing starting this last summer (check out that post here). I bought the dress thinking I could layer my grey turtleneck under it (since it’s short sleeved), but then I decided on  wearing the cardigan over it instead. I thought this would work for a winter wedding because it’s not a fancy dress, but still looks nice.

The dress has a grey trim at the top and the sleeves are grey, which is why I added in my grey boots (and tights). These boots were on Oprah’s list one year probably about 5 years ago from Payless. I have never been sorry I bought them because I love the different textures and the heel isn’t too high!

I figured since it was a wedding post, I should include at least a little sparkle, thus I put a brooch on my cardigan and even wore a rhinestone headband.

I’ve been such a fan of brooches lately. Ever since we styled them on the blog, here, here & here. I received so many suggestions of how else one could wear them that we’ll be showing more options in a couple of weeks!

Dress: LuLaRoe (similar here in a chevron print)~~Cardigan: Simply Vera (similar here with a fun neckline)~~Boots: Payless (similar here)~~Brooch: (similar here under $10)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Headband: (similar here)

Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: For Nancy’s outfit, I wanted to recycle another summer dress. This one is sleeveless, but I figured a thick cardigan would add the necessary warmth.

I love that the buttons on the cardigan aren’t exactly the same. To me, it adds some fun to the piece. If you can see in this picture, we lost one of her earrings on the way around the neighborhood. Luckily we found it close to the front door!

The sweater has a velvet like trim around the entire border! We bought it many years ago from Never Pay Retail here in Colorado which sells sample clothing at a discounted rate!

Since Nancy does own burgundy shoes, I thought we’d have her wear those instead of basic black ones. I know some women shy away from the ankle strap thinking they make your legs look shorter. I really don’t notice this at all, especially with this strap being so thin. What it’s really good for is keeping the shoes in place when you walk!

Dress: Peter Ngyard (similar here the sheath version)~~Cardigan: PBJ Sport (similar here in a color block version or here with a button closure)~~Shoes: BCBG (similar here in suede)~~Earrings: (similar here)

Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit: Mom made this maxi skirt just this year. Since they are so popular right now, I thought it’d be good to try to style it for different occasions. You can see her wearing it when it was warmer, here.

Mom has quite a bit of velvet in her closet, and since it’s a huge trend right now, we paired the maxi with the velvet blazer.

A turtleneck was a must for keeping warm, and then we had to add in accessories also! I bought mom this red bracelet when we were in Michigan, so I thought it high time that she wear it! The necklace is actually longer, but we tied a knot in the front to make it shorter.

I know we think about nude shoes more in the summer, but I figured since the skirt was lighter, that they  might make sense here too?!

And since the theme this week is weddings, I talked about wedding dresses for the older women in the post, here!

Since I love shopping, I looked for some dresses that you could wear to almost any wedding including a winter wedding:

  • Great outfits! Thanks for sharing at the Grace + Lace Linkup!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Mackenzie!!

  • Loved all the outfits, but your Mom’s my fave. That red velvet is a must have.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Neti—she’ll be thrilled that you think so!!

  • I like your mom’s maxi skirt and the red feels really festive on all of you! I also appreciate the eye rolls from your mom 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I get a lot of those eye rolls…:)

  • I love all of the color pop in these outfits. Thanks for sharing at Glimpses!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Barbie!

  • PetiteOver40

    I could totally see these outfits at a more casual winter wedding–or any other fun occasion in the winter, for that matter! If it helps your case, you can tell your mom that I had a friend whose son got married several years ago outside around Thanksgiving. That’s still considered fall, I guess, but it’s close to winter! hee hee.

    I love all three looks but the one thing that reached out and grabbed me was your mom’s velvet jacket. You may want to check it for drool marks. 😁🙃😍


    • Jodie Filogomo

      That cracked me up, Sherry—drool marks 🙂
      I know a couple of people who’ve gotten married in the mountain close to Denver. And as much as there can be some formality there, I know some have kept it quite casual!!

  • Bev @ Walking Well With God

    I love the 50’s look (I also love LuLaRoe – how comfy can you get?) I like the idea of repurposing summer dresses with a cardigan or jacket to allow it to go “winter”. I’m visiting from Barbie’s link up and will have to subscribe 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Bev!!

  • I love how all of you went with color even though it is winter…so pretty!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Tara!! I am pretty much addicted to color–in fact, I’ve been trying hard not to buy any black lately—but it’s hard because the stores always seem to have a ton of it!

  • Oh wow all these looks are so nice! Love your dress Jodie.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Gemma!!

  • Kirsten Wick

    I love that print on your dress Jodie, it’s wonderful that you’re supporting your friend with her line. And by the way, I think the cardigan is a perfect addition. Love, Kirsten x

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Kirsten!!

  • I suppose the formality of a wedding depends a lot on the time of day and the venue but I do think that there is such a thing as a wedding that calls for a more relaxed or casual attire. Or maybe it’s just an L.A. thing, LOL. In an event, you’ve done a marvelous job of creating three very different looks that would be perfect for an event that does not require formal attire but certainly requires something more than what you would wear to a backyard BBQ. All of the little details are fabulous, like the sparkle in your outfit, Nancy’s shoes with a strap, and Charlotte’s floral maxi skirt. Thank you for sharing your styling perspectives with my Fine-Whatever link up.


    • Jodie Filogomo

      I do think it depends on the city…Denver has always been the casual town. I remember my dad talking about that a lot even when he first moved out here in the late 70’s!
      And you’re right—the middle of the day, seems less formal too!!
      Thanks for stopping by Rena!!

  • Sometimes I wish there were more casual weddings, especially in the winter. It can be hard to get all dressed up when it’s freezing

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Unless we’re wearing faux fur—then that keeps me nice and warm!!

  • That dress and cardigan look amazing on you! I admit I haven’t been to a more casual wedding, but I agree to having heard of them too.

      Thanks Amy!!
      I know some of the more casual weddings I’ve been to have been up in the mountains. There’s some great venues just an hour or so away from Denver! Then again, I’d probably wear flats to most of those!!

  • You look so fabulous Jodie! The Julia was one of my favorites when I sold Lularoe. It looks amazing on you. Happy weekend!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      I can never keep the name on the Lularoe pieces straight, Liz!! But thanks so much for the fabulous compliment!!

  • All great looks! I think they would work at quite a few weddings and for many other occasions as well. I love your grey boots!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Andrea!!

  • I love all these looks – your gray boots are really fab, and I adore your mom’s velvet blazer too. Thanks for linking up, and stay well xox


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Patti!
      Mom will love it that her blazer is getting some love!

  • Amy D. Christensen

    Jodie, I really like these looks and while you say they are a more casual look, I think they all could be worn to a more formal wedding as well. All the outfits are classy, well fitted and accessorized very well. The colors are bright, which says, so what if it is winter! You all look fabulous. As many others have commented that dress looks amazing on your. You have a lovely figure, so why not show it off. Nancy looks so upbeat and on trend with her cute shoes and print dress, and you mom looks absolutely stunning in that red blazer and print skirt! I think I like these looks the best out of this series that you did. Thanks for sharing! – Amy

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Amy!
      It is funny how I pulled out red & burgundy for all 3 of us—it’s funny how sometimes I must have a color on the brain even though I style us on different days!!
      I really appreciate all of your kind words, and I’ll forward this to both Nancy & mom so they can smile also!!

  • Laura

    I like all these options. Nancy’s dress and sweater are so pretty together! And Never Pay Retail sounds like such an interesting store! I wish there was a similar one near me!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      This store is very fun, but it’s also hard on the wallet…ha ha!! Luckily it wasn’t super close to us so we didn’t go a lot. However, just this month they are moving to a different location which is not as far away—eeek!!

  • I love your dress Jodie! And so beautiful with the cardigan. I wished Lularoe would sell in the Netherlands too!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Maybe you should look into that—you could become their first consultant in the area, Nancy!!???

  • Wow you ladies look so pretty in these outfits! Great for a wedding casual style! =)

      Thanks so much Cielo!!

  • Mireille

    I love your outfit! I never wear brooches but the different ways you all style them are fun and youthful. Looking forward to your future post!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Mireille!!
      I know totally what you mean about brooches!! I used to consider them old fashioned (even though I had some in my jewelry box), so I’m super glad they are back on the fashion radar!! This snowflake one I just bought at a thrift store for $1—definitely worth the money, I think!!

  • Versatilestylebytracey

    I love all the color in these and in fact these are my favorite of this series.I am a petite and I think ankle straps are awesome especially with knee length dresses and ankle pants. Mom’s maxi is fantastic and is so versatile with so many colors that she will get a lot of use of it for sure.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I’m so glad to hear you say that about ankle straps, Tracey!! I think they are so functional, that any idea of not looking as good as other shoes gets thrown out the window!!
      Mom will be so happy that others like her skirt as much as she does!! Thanks!!

  • Judy Gramith

    Whether you all attend a wedding or another semi-formal event you all look colorfully classy!
    Jodie, the print of your dress is really cool and all the colors make it really versatile. The sweater works really well and your figure…fabulous!!
    I’m loving the creative buttons and trim on Nancy’s sweater. She looks great in all shades of red,pink,and burgundy with her pretty white hair.
    Charlotte always seems to be on trend. As an exceptional seamstress she clearly has a keen eye for what’s new and how she can craft her own “one of a kind”. I suspect this is a well honed skill!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks for such lovely words of encouragement Jude!
      I really lucked out with this dress because I bought it at a LuLaRoe home party and didn’t try it on first. It’s a little tighter than what I usually go for, but I love the colors!
      I forwarded your wonderful comment to both Nancy & mom so they can revel in your compliments!
      I know my mom loves recreating what she sees in the magazines and stores! She even subscribes to a couple of sewing magazines that also gives her tons of inspiration! It really gets her excited to spend most days sewing and creating!!

  • I love the colours of your outfit Jodie.

    I’m also digging your Mom wearing that velvet blazer with the bold maxi. This is something I’d totally wear and day.


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Suzanne!!
      Mom’s outfit certainly stands out—but why not, right? Who wants to be invisible anymore!?

  • Tina von tinaspinkfriday

    All three outfits are so amazing. I love this red velvet blazer. It looks fabulous.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Tina!!
      Mom will be so happy to hear you say that!!

  • Bernadette Laganella

    Love, love, love your outfit – dress, cardigan, boots – great styling.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Bernadette!!
      I really lucked out with this dress because I didn’t try it on when I bought it (and I never do that)!!
