Happy MLK day everyone! Given the chilly temperatures, our Round Up Editor, Carrie, decided it would be fun to track down some fashionable alternatives to chattering teeth…

Taking a cue from many of the brides featured on SMP who don fabulous items to keep them warm on their wedding day, we thought we would do a little Round Up for all of you brides that are getting married this winter or in the early spring and fall. While a cute cardi is perfect for some, a great jacket might just be the ticket for a more jazzy affair.
Whether you just need a classy coat to get you from wedding to reception or you want to wear your jacketini all night long, this next collection will be your guide.
Row I: Personally, I think jackets are key if your in a colder climate. In order to avoid bulk and risk of a fashion faux pas go for cropped jackets that are perfectly tailored and ultra feminine. For an updated “Jackie O” look, I love this metallic blend jacket by Milly. For a softer look, this reversible caplet by indie designer, Madelin Zero is just the thing for a snowy evening. And for those who are all about making a fashion statement, check out this silk jacket by Twenty8Twelve. From the intricate texture to the confetti print, this is a must-have item.
Row II: Sequins are a major fashion trend and what better time to wear them than for a fun-filled evening when you’re the center of attention. This cardigan from Urban Outfitters is an affordable rendition to the big name designers in a classic, glamorous cut. For a more structured look, pop on this jacket from Anthropologie that combines a shorter cut with frilly details making it an ideal topper for a pretty gown. If your looking for something you can wear all night long, this ruffle jacket by Weston Wear is a super cute alternative.
Row III: Sometimes all you need is a really stylish coat to get you from wedding to reception and reception to your get-away car. I have to say, you cannot go wrong in a long coat in a luscious creamy shade. The look is always fresh and classic over a beautiful wedding gown. In a variety of styles, these three are some of our favs: Mod Cloth’s cutest little mod jacket, LuLu’s ultra chic and edgy coat, and this lustrous golden tweed topper also found at Mod Cloth.
