“Be sure to dress up your more comfortable look with fun jewelry,” she adds.

A statement earring is the perfect way to dress up any look.


Even though comfort is queen these days, Yeadon says a dress certainly isn’t off-limits.

“Try pairing [your dress] with an elevated blazer for warmth or if you need a little coverage,” she says.

Last but certainly not least, Yeadon suggests playing with textile textures.

“A tonal look is always elegant,” she says. “Try mixing textures with a metallic tank, suede pants and a fun faux fur-lined wrap!”

Texture, in fact, is what she says is the most important factor to be in style this season.

“Lots of texture,” she says in terms of current trends. “Fuzzy cardigans are having a moment [for] a more casual overall look but one that is very styled and put-together. [There’s a focus on] interesting necklines and details. The puffed sleeve is going to be everywhere this winter.”

Whether you are staying home for the holiday or attending a smaller gathering, Yeadon encourages feeling festive.

“Our clothing reflects our mood, and there’s no better way to elevate your mood and embrace the festivity of the holiday season than with a great outfit,” Yeadon says.

Engaged couples are making several big changes to their wedding celebrations amid pandemic: survey

Some couples whose wedding celebrations had been upended by the coronavirus pandemic are now proceeding with plans that reflect the current health crisis.

Out of a survey of 10,000 “to-be-weds” conducted by The Knot Worldwide, around 50% of the participating engaged couples from around the globe had said they decided to postpone their wedding day. Meanwhile, in the U.S., that number drops slightly, with only 42% of couples indicating they postponed plans due to COVID-19.

Furthermore, 56% of U.S. couples who said they would postpone the big day have already married legally, but intend to celebrate with a reception at a later date to keep their attendees safe.

WEDDING GUESTS WANT TO KNOW YOUR MASK POLICY BEFORE THEY RSVP

When it comes down to planning a wedding in late 2020 or early 2021, The Knot found that 56% of engaged couples from around the world have decided on cutting their guest list by at least one-quarter, on average.

Additionally, the wedding resource determined 41% of couples have been maintaining coronavirus-related FAQ sections on either their wedding invitations or website, or, they’ve sent emails to keep guests informed about health and safety protocols.

CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC WILL CHANGE WEDDING INDUSTRY FOREVER, FOUNDER OF ‘BRIDESMAID FOR HIRE’ SAYS

Of those who intend to get married in the U.S., 94% told The Knot they would implement measures such as complimentary hand sanitizer and face masks for guests, or that they would be modifying food service, seating arrangements and entertainment options to comply with social distancing guidelines.

As an alternative, some couples are reportedly “hosting several small events in one day instead of one large gathering.”

Technology is also being considered for guests who cannot make it to the in-person celebrations, but would still like to be included in festivities.

In the U.S., 43% of U.S. couples are planning to incorporate streaming video, so guests can watch them get married virtually. That number is slightly higher in Canada, with 49% of engaged Canadian couples indicating the same.

Streaming a wedding was found to be substantially less popular in western Europe with 6% of engaged couples from Italy showing openness to it, while 9% from Spain, 10% from Portugal and 18% in France showed openness to virtual weddings.
