AUTUMNAL HUES

While the fash-pack may be raring to go for Spring 2018, we can’t bear to part with our Winter warmers just yet. Save the pastel hues and Crayola brights for March! Instead, embrace those autumnal hues just a little longer – while you can. That said, a tweak to your usual colour palette is the quickest and easiest way to get an instant wardrobe update.

With the sun making an ever more frequent appearance, follow the season and warm up Autumn by embracing jewel tones. We’re talking shades of burnt orange, deep yellow, bottle green, brilliant berry, and luxe navy – the perfect hues to be wearing at this time of year. And, thanks to their transitional nature, they’re sure to carry you right through ready to step into Spring!


Burnt Orange
Rich coppers and tones of vermilion are your go-to for your February colour wheel update. Burnt orange is a fail-safe hue as it resembles a summery bright without being too in-your-face. Experiment with texture and choose a focal piece, like a vinyl skirt or felt jacket in the standout shade, or add a simple pop of the colour with an accessory. We’ll be styling it in a slinky burnt orange slip dress layered over a long sleeve tee until the Summer sun arrives.

Bottle Green
Emerald is having a mini moment right now between the ultra-feminine style shades of pink and lavender, so what better time to go green? Instead of opting for a traditional black aviator jacket or sand trench coat, bottle green is the perfect colour to update your outerwear. Want to work two trends at once? Find a check print with green as the base hue and boss a blazer, a tailored trouser, or a full suit.

Deep Yellow
When it comes to yellow, right now it’s less about looking like a Spring chicken and more about being a golden girl. Select one piece to act as an accent when teamed with darker items of clothing and we’ll guarantee it’ll lift your whole look. Or, for the truly brave, give tonal dressing a go in head-to-toe yellow and be your own ray of sunshine. Make sure you stick to mustard hues of deep yellow so as not to risk blinding anyone!

Brilliant Berry
Not quite a red and not quite a purple, berry is the in between shade that lets you get two for the price of one! It all depends on how you style it. Opt for a deeper hue such as maroon or wine and the colour appears redder, whereas punchier shades look a lot more purple. Find the shade that’s most flattering for your skin tone and you can’t really go wrong! Plus, with both red and purple set to be big for SS18, you know berry is a guaranteed winner now and for the months ahead too.

Luxe Navy
While black may always be the new black in the fashion world, we’re opting for luxurious shades of navy and midnight blue for the subtlest of changes that make the biggest difference. Black can often appear harsh against paler skin tones, and given the lack of sunshine it’s safe to say we could all do with a bit of warming up. Navy does just that, providing a healthy glow without sacrificing subtle sartorial style. Next time you go to reach for something black from your wardrobe, try substituting for a navy equivalent instead. You can thank us later!
