What to wear for a November Wedding

So I have a friend’s wedding coming up in November, in Manchester, in autumn. The weather is these parts is already getting gloomy (summer is over, nooooo!) and I’m wondering what I’m going to wear to this event as its probably going to be fairly cold!

As sticking to a budget is paramount to me as I’m sure it is for many this time of year (party season is definitely in view!) I’m ideally looking for something not only warm(ish) but also versatile that I can wear again. I’m not a disposable fashion kinda gal so buying an item that I’m only going to wear once is not really my way, investing in something that is good quality and transcends the seasons is much more appealing to me.

Therefore I’m on the hunt for a good value classic, something not too short, too tight or too flashy and something appropriate for the season. I’m thinking that black tights are going to be part of this November wedding outfit formula to try to keep out the cold! As is the right jacket, as we know that a good/bad jacket can really be the key to the a good outfit, or let it down! I don’t think today’s denim number is going to cut it!

Embracing a rich autumnal colour palette is also desirable for me, burgundys, greens and mustards in fear not wanting to look too summery. Take a look below for some of the autumn wedding outfit cuts we have found on the high street, hope this inspires your guest outfits too!
