Boleros are kind of weird because they seem like one of those things, like veils, most people would never wear except at their wedding. But you wouldn’t wear a cardigan instead of a bolero if you were feeling chilly at your wedding. You’d wear a bolero and like it.
Having said that, these are the kinds of bolero I’d make up an excuse to wear.
They’re so nutty! I like the red especially — nice for a Chinese wedding. (Though at the Chinese wedding I won’t be needing to wear anything for warmth. In fact a portable electric fan would handier.)
Sadly the dress I have purchased just wouldn’t work with a bolero, especially one that doesn’t really have proper sleeves, like the red one. Perhaps I’ll look at cardigans instead!
