A gown this voluminous needs a delicate, monochromatic bolero ($480 at Morgane Le Fay, 746 Madison Ave.; 212-879-9700).

A faux-fur capelet works well with a dress that’s fitted up top ($99 at David’s Bridal, 3500 48th St., Plaza 48, Queens Village; 718-784-8200).

A beaded lace shrug adds interest to a simple strapless gown ($750 at Birnbaum & Bullock 151 W. 25th St.; 212-242-2914).

For New Year’s Eve nuptials (on a Champagne budget), go for fur (here, rabbit and fox). It has thirties-Hollywood glamour, and can be worn long after the wedding night ($4,750 at Celine, 667 Madison Ave.; 212-486-9700).

A knit bolero with oversize sequins complements an empire waistline ($1,595 by special order at Ports 1961; 1-866-433-7678).

A crisp, duster- style coat that hits just above the hemline will keep the wind from blowing up your skirt (Shoshanna coat, $415 at Jessie James 95 Greenwich Ave.; 212-217-9944).
