It’s tipping down, there’s a chill in the air and I’m firmly in autumn mode cosying up in my favourite knits. Now is a great time to get in the know with the latest colour trends – a mix of bright, bold colours alongside some softer hues and earthy tones are the way to go this season – here’s my top top five.
Fiery Red is particularly seductive and sensual, giving a powerful energy to outfits. Swap out your LBD this party season or go for a strong visual impact with a letterbox red wool coat. Alternatively why not embrace the sensuality of fiery red with an off the shoulder jumper in soft cashmere. And if fun and trendy is your thing wear it with clashing colours.
Yellow is a versatile colour, suitable for all types of garments, from blouses to dresses, and trousers. It symbolises optimism, energy, joy and happiness so an ideal colour to cheer you up on a dreary winters day. Butter yellow best compliments those who suit warm, clear shades. And for those who prefer more depth opt for mustard yellow. Lemon yellow’s for you if you suit cool, light shades and opt for canary yellow worn with black if you look best in high contrast shades.
Pretty in Pink
Add a touch of femininity to your winter style with pink. The two shades to be seen in this season are powder and candy pink. Either shade will sit beautifully alongside grey and if wearing a top in these shades feels a bit too girlie try adding a splash in your accessories.
Sparkling Grape is a vibrant and intense shade of purple that has become increasingly popular in autumn/winter months. This gorgeous shade of purple adds a touch of sophistication and allure to any outfit. While the depth of the colour makes it perfect to be worn as a main colour on silk, velvet and cotton. A versatile shade it makes for an interesting choice if your looking to add an elegant and stylish touch to your wardrobe.
Lava smoke is a sophisticated shade of grey which conveys elegance and a great choice for those wanting to step away from wearing black. Team a chunky knit in this fashionable shade with burgundy flares for an on trend look or a satin blouse with cigarette trousers and heels – perfect for intellectual femininity!
A rich, deep and versatile shade, chocolate brown is a great one to adopt into your wardrobe this autumn/winter. In addition to leather jackets the shops are awash with brown slinky dresses proving this hue doesn’t have to be reserved for daytime. It looks amazing teamed with tomato red, mustard yellow, olive green and for the more adventurous, teal blue.
