Add a Touch of Velvet

Velvet screams luxury. It’s also a gorgeous, warm fabric bringing some texture to autumn or winter looks. It’s also great for keeping you cosy – a bonus for those chillier autumn days!

Try out Textures like Tweeds, Wool & Herringbone

This chillier time of year calls for warmer fabrics. One way of introducing some depth and texture to your wedding look is with warmer fabrics like tweeds, herringbone and wool. They’ll keep you snug and have a gorgeous texture. Opt for a full suit in one of these fabrics or introduce just a touch through the likes of your waistcoat or accessories.

Play Around with Prints

When it comes to your accessories, it can be fun to play around with some prints. The likes of paisley, florals, plaid and houndstooth are perfect for this time of year. You could introduce them through your pocket square, tie or bow tie or even your shirt if you’re looking to make a bold statement.

Opt for a Rich Colour Palette

Autumn is all about gorgeous deep colours like rich berry shades such as burgundies, emerald and bottle greens, midnight blue and navy. Grey is also a great option for this time of year. So if you are looking for more of an autumn feel, choose a suit or jacket in these shades.

Go for Rustic Textures for Buttonholes

Your buttonhole is a great way to introduce some autumn vibes, from the flowers itself to the wrap. Twine and burlap are a gorgeous rustic way to tie your posy while flowers like eucalyptus, ferns, succulents, berries and pine cones make a great autumn boutonniere.

Don Some Brown Boots or Shoes

When it comes to footwear and the likes of your belt, brown is a great shade to opt for. A pop of brown works well with so many colours like grey, navy, burgundy and green and has a real fall feel.
