Pearl earrings are a perennial favorite for brides. Aesthetically, they fit the occasion thanks to their glamorous luster and elegant personality. And because they're so versatile, pearl earrings can be worn long after your wedding. In fact, whether they're vintage pearl studs or on-trend drop earrings in a rose gold setting, pearl earrings are a staple of a jewelry collection.
Many lucky brides receive their first cultured or freshwater pearl earrings as a wedding gift. Traditionally, pearls worn as wedding earrings tended to be white, but modern brides can opt for black pearls (which are actually dark gray) or other shades, such as pale pink or nude.
Stud earrings are always a classic wedding look. Some studs are embellished with small diamonds or gemstones for extra glamour. And since a variety of shades are available, you can pick pearl earrings in tones to match your wedding colors. If pearl earrings are your only jewelry, you can also choose a style that is a true statement piece, such as dramatic teardrops or chic chandeliers. One of the best things about pearls is that they always look timeless and ladylike, no matter what the design.

More and more brides are taking the leap and opting to wear a white jumpsuit on their wedding day. The chic look has been championed by celebrity brides including Solange Knowles, in her marriage to video producer Alan Ferguson, and human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, who, of course, is married to actor George Clooney.
Knowles actually wore three different jumpsuits by French designer Stéphane Rolland during her wedding weekend, beginning with a sexy ivory-toned version she wore while biking to the ceremony at New Orleans' Marigny Opera House. By the wedding's end, she was dancing in the streets to a brass band while wearing her third jumpsuit, with a plunging neckline.
For the Italian civil ceremony that preceded her wedding, Amal Clooney wore what looked like a white jumpsuit, but was actually belted separates, by Stella McCartney. Clooney, who is friends with McCartney, has also worn a one-shoulder jumpsuit with crochet lace and cropped legs by the British designer, as well as a lace burgundy jumpsuit by Giambattista Valli.
A white bridal jumpsuit is a chic dress alternative that is perfect for the style-savvy bride. As Clooney did, the bride can wear a white jumpsuit to her civil wedding for an unexpected look that is destined to impress. She can also wear a jumpsuit to the wedding ceremony to create a memorable look. As another option, she could wear a jumpsuit to her wedding reception, because this wedding-dress alternative is perfect for hitting the dance floor. Freedom is the vibe of a bridal jumpsuit, and we love it.
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!
If you're serious about getting flawless skin for your wedding day (and who isn't?), the latest reports on vitamin C in skin care products will make you a true believer. This ingredient isn't just hype; dermatologists have written about it glowingly in medical literature and are stocking their shelves with vitamin C-infused products, too. So we studied the science and found the 15 best vitamin C serums and beauty products to benefit your face.
Dr. Ellen Marmur, a Manhattan dermatologist and founder of Marmur Metamorphosis Skincare, explains the properties that make vitamin C a windfall for skin. "Vitamin C is an essential component in the body's production of collagen and a potent antioxidant that can help rejuvenate aged and photodamaged skin," Marmur says. "Ascorbic acid is one of the many beneficial forms of vitamin C that helps to brighten and even out skin tone."
No pre-wedding brightening regimen will be complete without one or more of these superstar products, many of which contain the antioxidant ferulic acid and can be found at favorite retailers like Amazon, Sephora and Walmart.
