Autumn Winter Colour Trend: Earthy Tones

As we head into the cooler months, an easy way to bring some heat into last year’s winter wardrobe is through warm undertones.

Big on the autumn catwalks were the quintessentially autumnal shades of mocha and muted green – both nature-inspired staples that will make your trans-seasonal wardrobe work twice as hard. You probably have them in there already so embracing this trend won’t mean starting from scratch.

 

Earthy colours work well as a soft backdrop to bolder colours such as black and red, or simply teamed with other shades on the neutral spectrum. They have a timeless hue. They hint at a return to basics and a slower, more sustainable pace of life and act as a comforting antidote to our always-on busy lives. Lighten up dark winter tones with soft shades of blue, moss green and dusty silver. These pieces will add a refreshing dose of colour to your cold weather staples, and are also a long-term investment that’ll go the distance from this season to the next. If you’re up for something a little more spicy, nutmeg, paprika, cinnamon, turmeric and mustard are coming out of the kitchen rack and onto the streets.

A mustard print dress will propel you into the new season, offering you an easy transitional piece you can wear to work with ankle boots, or out to dinner with your favourite stilettos. Better yet, raise the stakes with a mustard accessory like a saddle bag. Tan, gold and white are three hues that work perfectly with yellows. Try pairing shades of yellow or mustard with florals, a classic camel coat, boots and gold jewellery to complete the look.
