Happy Monday, dear readers! Since we’re all feeling that little nip in the air (and a few of my northern friends actually have seen snow!), we thought it would be fun for Southern Style to take on the cool fall air as well. That’s why in today’s post we’re focusing on cardigans and tights! (Did you know that our own Miss Emily has quite the collections of colorful cardigans?).

If your wedding falls on a day where you’d rather being wearing scarves and boots than a strapless wedding dress, I’ve got you covered (pun intended) with the best options to to keep your shoulders and toes toasty!

First option: cardigans! Oh yes, these sweet little button-ups come in all different shapes, styles and colors – making them the perfect fall accessory. If you’re looking for a way to change up the traditional cardigan, I LOVE how Jonathon Canlas’ stylish bride below chose a fitted navy blazer. Such a great twist on the “I’m freezing, may I please borrow your way-too-big suit jacket?” Not to mention, so much more chic!

Second option: tights! I am such a big fan of tights. No joke, y’all, they might be one of the only reasons I would live in super cold weather! Well, that, and pea coats. I digress. With all the different patterns we’re seeing, tights are such a great way to keep your bridesmaids warm without having to give up style. My advice – less is more. If your maids will be wearing detail-heavy dresses, go with plain tights. If you want their tights to steal the show, choose a more toned-down dress option.

What do you think? Would you or did you wear a cardigan or tights (or maybe both!) on your wedding day? How will you be staying warm on your wedding day?
