A reader drew my attention to a problem around this time of year of being cold in your party dress.
I told her what I told my friend Katharine the other day who was going to a wedding in Scotland and terrified of being cold, which was: wear a velvet dress, with sleeves.
Absolutely, 100% fashionable, warm and festive.
Here are a few examples from asos.com – but they are no means the only ones available – it’s just for inspiration.
Tell your friend to wear her velvet dress with thick tights too! I had to scrape ice off my car windscreen at 2pm yesterday and it didn’t get above -1 all day at my house. And I just live in Glasgow, my partner is up in highlands and he had -9 most of the day. So depending on where her wedding is she’s right to be worried. Still, we had a warm, dry, sunny summer here, I do love seasons. Elaine x

And does one wear thick black tights & what on feet? Are shoe boots still ‘in’? From Mum of 3 having wardrobe & identity crisis
Yes absolutely – opaque tights and shoe boots are fine, go for it
What about a dress for black tie party in Australian summer??
Ha ha! Jesus… just go in your swimmers…
I might get fired if I do that although structured seafolly ones might just cut it…
Don’t you just drink booze until you don’t feel the cold any more?
Yes or alternatively I went to a winter wedding 6 months pregnant, takes a bit of planning of course, but ensured I was unseasonably warm in a sleeveless lbd whilst everyone was in duvets.
