I am a fifties-something woman going to a 3:00 pm November wedding in New York City followed by a reception and I’m wondering what kind of dress to wear and what color? Since I’m coming from Florida, I want to be in step with what other women my age are wearing.

What we love about New York City is being able to wear a little black dress and dress it up — or down depending on the occasion.
Nothing is more perfect for a three o’clock wedding than a LBD, with great shoes and a pretty, but chic evening bag.
Our favorite go to website what2wearwhere.com recommends these five little black basic dresses to wear in the fall and winter of 2015-2016.
There is one to suit your style whether you like to go sleeveless, or if you prefer short sleeves, or a dress with three-quarter length sleeves:
We also like the website halsbrook.com for women over forty looking for a polished and professional look for work and play. See below.
Since you will be coming from Florida and I don’t know the extent of your winter wardrobe, take a look at this two piece ensemble below that will give you three different looks for your trip to NYC:
A chic suit that has a coat length jacket to wear to the 3:00 pm ceremony, which can also be worn with slacks when you get off the plane in NYC, or can be used as a coverup for the little black dress (already in your closet) that you wear to the wedding reception that evening along with a pop of jewelry and a small evening bag.
You’ll only need a beautiful pair of comfy black pumps to wear on the plane and when walking around NYC, and fabulous heels for dancing at the wedding reception:
Look at it this way. You will need some sort of coat in NYC for the weekend, and if you’re traveling light, these three outfits could be your solution. Accessorize with a small, elegant evening bag, fabulous shoes, and a bit of fashionable contemporary jewelry, or your favorite pearls.
