You Will Need
Stick with a classic style
Stick with a classic style dress that is not too tight, so your bridesmaids will be able to add a layer underneath for warmth. Consider dresses with sleeves or even a high neckline.
Choose a heavy fabric
Choose a heavy fabric -- it will conceal any added layers underneath.
Skip the mini skirts
Skip the mini skirts. Dress your bridesmaids in long, evening gown-length dresses. Short, cocktail lengths are for spring or summer ceremonies.
Choose jewel colors
Choose darker, jewel-toned or metallic colors that complement the season.
Add accessories to their dresses. Spruce up their look with opera-length gloves, a jacket, or a wrap. Add a touch of faux-fur around the collar or the top of the sleeves for the perfect winter accent.
