Luckily, the autumn/winter catwalks were awash with versatile fabrics and prints and glamorous cover ups perfect for an autumn wedding. Don’t let the bad weather get in the way of you nailing your wedding guest style.
The A/W trend: soft texture
How to wear it to a wedding: This trend is the embodiment of glamorous autumn/winter wedding luxe. Think fur detailing, velvet, silk, jacquard detailing – anything goes as long as it looks expensive and feels soft to the touch.
The A/W trend: 1960s
