I'd been exploring different styles of language when I decided I'd like to write in an archaic style as was common in the 18/19th century. How do you suggest I write in such style? Please do suggest anything you feel would be of particular benefit for my writing.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
Best to find an author whose style and subject matter closely matches what you wish to achieve, and immerse yourself in that style, noticing the lexis used, the way sentences are structured and the way in which formality differs from today's norms.
