Winter is on its way, but that doesn’t mean you’ve survived wedding season just yet. If you find yourself with a few “save the dates” still lingering on your fridge, you may be wondering what to wear to your fall weddings. Not to fear, we’re here to help you look better than the best man. Here are some ways to make your own entrance without relying on the same suit you’ve worn to the last 4 weddings.

Color

For this fall’s color palette, look to the outdoors. Woodsy shades of green including olive, loden, and moss  are finding their way back into the fashion world. If green isn’t in your comfort zone, burgundy and earthy browns will do just as well. If either of those color combinations worry you, a nice fitting gray suit will help you look at the top of your game.

Layer

Layering is a great way to mix up your standard suit. Including a vest will help to dress it up a tad, and provide an opportunity to add extra color or texture. Thick sweaters are also a great way to do this, but keep in mind this may become stuffy if it’s and indoor wedding. Another fall accessory that can be easily added to your suit is a scarf. These will all give you versatility, warmth and style.

Texture

As we mentioned earlier, textured sweaters are always welcomed. But, suits can also be a good item to add some extra texture to. Tweed, flannel and even velvet are available alternatives to your standard wool-blend suit this fall.

Pattern

What better way to freshen up a look than to add some pattern to your wardrobe. Whether you add it to your tie, dress shirt, or in the suit, patterns will surely help you stand out. Gingham, dots, and plaid are the go-to’s this upcoming season.

Every wedding has it’s own style, and your attire will depend on time of day and whether it is inside or out.  Hopefully these options will help inspire you to try something new at your next fall wedding.
