Chic Winter Coats, Capes and Wraps That Every Bride Can Wear with Her Wedding Dress

Shivering on your way to the altar is far from fashionable. Yet it's a surprisingly tall order to find a coverup that's appropriate — and suitably warm — to wear over wedding attire. Given the array of wedding dresses available, from romantic gowns to sassy cocktail numbers, we have found as many bridal coats, capes, stoles and shrugs to pull together your bridal ensemble.

For a sleek and chic look, faux fur is the gold standard. It's a standout for bridal attire for two reasons: It's toasty warm, and it's elegant. And it's a go-to for retro brides who want to bring some vintage luxury to their winter wedding. White fur will keep the look entirely bridal, but you can also choose a color or a natural hue. For the fashion-forward bride, we found a white faux fur moto jacket to rock your nuptials. And a black or white wool capelet lends an Old Hollywood vibe.

Below are some of our favorite winter bridal cover-ups from BHLDN, Boden, Bloomingdale's, Macy's, Nordstrom, David's Bridal, Amazon and more. Each style was selected to enhance, not hide, your wedding dress, because the picks are as pretty as your gown. And the best part? Prices start at $28!

Armitage Jacket by Betsey Johnson

We've fallen head over heels for the Armitage Jacket from Betsey Johnson. It's ivory in color, making it perfect for a dress in matching ivory or blush.

The design includes seaming for extra dimension, a sleek satin lining and a hook closure. It looks so elegant that it's the perfect cover up for other dressy occasions. ($98; bhldn.com)
