When deciding what to wear to a dressy occasion this winter, it's important to keep in mind what is currently in style and also what will keep you warm, as elements of both will come into play in these formal cold weather occasions. Dressy clothing is generally easy to spruce up for men to keep warm but women usually have to go a slightly different route so that they can still wear the proper formal attire yet also cover up the skin they would otherwise show off with their fashionable outfits. Check out some of the suggestions for what men and women should wear to a dressy occasion this winter and see which ones work best for you.
For women looking dressy and sexy at the same time but also trying to maintain a certain amount of warmth, a whole outfit will have to be fashioned out of different types of nice clothes which can help them in the wintery trek to the dressy occasion. A sweater dress will help hold in warmth on the core part of a woman's body yet still show off her attractive figure and also her legs and thighs as she deems necessary. To cover the legs from the winter chill, attractive boots can be worn which will also compliment the sweater dress. As an overcoat may be too heavy for the weather or too much to deal with, a cardigan can be worn over this sweater dress for added warmth as well and then stowed inside the dressy gathering if it clashes with what everyone else is wearing.
As men's dressy attire often consists of a suit and dress shirt which is relatively warm anyway, their winter outfit only needs a slight addition of a few articles for these dressy winter events. A heavy wool overcoat that matches the color of the suit or at least fits the man like a glove is the main addition, as it will keep the chill of a guy when he is outside in the colder weather before he steps inside the formal gathering and removes his overcoat to reveal his nicely pressed suit. A scarf is a nice addition to the suit and overcoat as well, as it will keep any residual cold weather and wind out from between the suit and the overcoat and add a different color and texture to the man's winter outfit in general.
Women who want a different, classy look at dressy occasions this winter can go a classic route with a hint of modern daring if they feel like they can pull it off. If they have a fur coat at their disposal or feel like renting one, this will be a perfect start for this look. Under the fur coat, find a classy, modernly cut dress that compliments your body; this specific dress will vary based on the woman, how she looks and what she wears with the most confidence. To ensure absolute warmth, leggings should be worn under the dress, but only off they can be pulled off with the shoes and won't ruin a dress meant to show off your legs.
