The suppleness of woven leather ensures comfort and ease for the whole day! A golden or silver colour will emphasize the festive side of your outfit. You can also opt for feminine sandals with narrow straps which will go perfectly with a long or short dress.

In winter, your attire will inevitably be less light than for a summer wedding. Therefore, most will opt for elegant trousers or a dress with tights. Same thing for the shoes, they will be closed, but at the same time fine, feminine and elegant. Avoid thick rubber soles and go for leather soles. You can't go wrong with leather loafers, lace-up shoes, such as derbies or oxfords. Even if the colours are usually less varied in winter, you can still brighten up a dark outfit with a pair of colorful shoes.

You have decided to opt for a more casual chic look, this means styling coloured shoes, or shoes with a little print but still have a look that suits with the occasion? We recommend wearing shoes that have a slightly more casual accent as you don't want to go for a flashy coloured look but sure, the shoe type can change. What about wearing coloured loafers with a rolled up chino and a shirt? This look is more a guest look for an event in the middle of the summer when there is no dress code. You can also wear tassel loafers to give a little less formal edge to your look and you can style these with the pants of your suit, a shirt and a blazer.
And if you're attending a bohemian wedding or a beach wedding, choose comfortable suede leather loafers, which will go perfectly with light linen pants.
