Summer wedding season might be over, but that doesn’t mean your RSVP duties have ended. Wedding bells are still ringing, with a host of winter weddings awaiting you. Unsure how to dress for the colder season whilst still maintaining that same smart style?
Winter wedding attire is all about embracing the colours, texture and patterns so closely associated with the rest of your cold weather wardrobe. Don’t confine yourself to that same black suit and tie – it’s time to inject some seasonal inspiration into your suit collection.
Read on to discover how to update your occasion wear style for the new season.
Eschew expectations in modern suiting finished with plenty of winter texture. No winter wardrobe is complete without the ultimate cold-weather texture: velvet. Go for a statement look with a deep blue velvet suit, bringing a unique twist to your special occasion attire. For a more casual affair, dress down the look with a t-shirt, or pair with a classic cotton shirt.
Introduce pattern in an understated way with a micro dogtooth check. The classic pattern is scaled down to create a super subtle, intricate check that brings depth to light grey. Go all-out in a smart three-piece complete with waistcoat, or keep it simple with a two-piece – all it needs is a crisp white shirt.
Take your style cues from the season itself with a rich palette inspired by the darker winter mood. This olive green tone is a stylish alternative to classic black or navy, and is the perfect fit for a winter wedding. Style yours with a roll neck jumper for a more casual approach.
