Q. We're searching for the perfect pageboy outfit for our winter wedding; what would you suggest?

A. Dawn Clarke says: When picking an outfit, always consider if your pageboy will be warm enough during the ceremony and when photographs are taken.

Fabrics that are perfect for the winter season are cotton velvet or even a high-quality wool that would be excellent for regulating the pageboy's temperature without looking too bulky. Ensure the garments are silk lined to avoid itchy skin irritations.

If you're looking for something different, why not consider a bespoke military-style jacket teamed up with a pair of long trousers? For a more traditional look, opt for a gorgeous waistcoat with long trousers, a pair of braces and a tie/bow tie that matches the groom or bridesmaids.

Finally, why not finish off the look with a matching suit jacket? Consider a vintage-inspired edge-to-edge jacket, which has less bulk around the neck area but still looks stunning?
