Anything that shows off my legs is not an option (varicose veins)

Maxi dress feels a bit dated and meh!

Bought a lovely looking jumpsuit from Reiss in the sale for the bargain price of £70 reduced down from £250 and I look like a plumbers mate.

I am 41, 5 foot 6 and 9 and a half stone. What the f*ck can I wear!

Knee dress with opaques.

If you can’t show your legs in summer then embrace opaques in winter as an opportunity to wear a good knee length dress.

See I did wonder about opaques. It's been such a long time since I have worn a knee length dress I have no idea what you would put with opaques and what shoes? blush

Yes, opaques are perfectly acceptable for a winter wedding.

Or wide legged trousers? Hush have some in the sale I think. Whistles sales is pretty good at the moment too.

Black heels with opaques or ankle boots look good if you don't have cankles like me.

You could wear something sequinned and sparkly with a jacket over the top for the service.

I did this for a winter wedding few years ago. Dress from monsoon, was a thick dress, iyswim not floaty/summery, just above the knee in a bright colour with black opaque tights and shoes that matched the dress.

Something like this

How about a midi dark floral skirt with narrower top? e.g. - then either black knee highs or black opaques with black court shoes.

There are some gorgeous dark winter florals about at the moment, either a skirt or a dress with some dark tights and pointy flats will look gorgeous.

Or a dark floral blouse with a pair of wide legged trousers would look fab. Browns and purples are beginning to look luxurious again and don't look like workwear so are a good option if you like and suit them.

Some good ideas here thank you.

Yes, dark florals. I went to a wedding in October and wore a black long sleeved (but floaty) midi dress with a floral pattern in pinks and purples, black opaques, black heels, tweed jacket, black bag and a purple felt hat.

There are slightly metallic pleated midi skirts everywhere at the moment which look good with opaque tights and a matt top... I got one from jigsaw but also definitely available In Whistles
