trends of Autumn

LIKE A melting pot of honey and drizzling caramel, the delectable flavours of autumn’s style are whetting the appetite for the winter season to come with a scattering of fashion’s favourite colours, from cornflower blue to the rich palettes of burgundy and green and pastel’s oh so now, lilac hues.

Maintaining a synergy with the elements and a food lover’s palette, these delicious and irresistible shades make you warm just looking at them.

Steeped in tradition, it’s a classic neutral backdrop that sets the tone for the new season, creating the foundation for the perfect autumn/winter capsule while making way for your own personal injection of style, because vivid colour, the ever and always chic, black and white, and bold and graphic prints will always have their place among neutral tones and shades.
Add a punch of pink with a cosy sweater to your black and white check pants, a sunshine yellow shoe to your basic blacks or add an element of surprise by pairing your lilac ensemble with the perfect red shoe, or if you prefer a little drama, there’s nothing like classic black to offset this season’s favourite pastel. No shrinking violets here!

Now just in case you haven’t yet heard, leopard print has officially joined the neutral family and it is without question the print of the season - there’s no escaping it - but for those of you who still feel it’s a little loud, why not start the animal print obsession, (because it will become an obsession) with a little snake skin; a subtle yet striking entry into the world of animal prints and the other ‘must have’ print of the season.

And because we can’t get enough of autumn’s new style, a final few tips to ensure your shopping list is complete:

  • Think oversized when it comes to your coats, jackets and totes!
  • Don’t forget that soft, voluminous maxi’s in floral prints are not limited to summer days…. we found our favourite at Blue Illusion… just add boots and a gorgeous hat!
  • AND last but not least, cornflower blue will be the colour to brighten up any day; Grey clouds and rainy days will be instantly revived! Try Cue’s Duck Egg Brushed Mohair coat on for size. An investment you won’t regret.

Oh, trans-seasonal dressing has never been so easy!
