The fashion industry has seen a bold mix up this season, with the introduction of striking and daring new colours. Exiting new palettes are at the forefront for Autumn/Winter, offering a refreshing approach to the usual shades and neutrals that we usually see at this time of year.
With colour being the focal point in fashion, which shades are worth investing in, and which will suit your own unique style? Read on to find out…
For the Bold and Brave
If you’re something that embraces colour in your style, this season’s styles offer many exciting options for you. If you have an adventurous streak, the leading colour for you this season is mustard/ceylon yellow. This update on a bright and sunny yellow provides a slightly more muted tone that’s perfect for the colder months, but still adds that bright and playful pop of colour.
Style it with:
Grey – this simple and elegant combination can be styled up or down, and is perfect for workwear and social occasions. While grey is soft and muted, the pop of mustard yellow adds that all important personality. Try teaming a mustard yellow fine-knit jumper or blouse with a grey jersey midi skirt, or switch the shades round, opting for a grey knit jumper with contrasting collar, teamed with a jersey or knit midi skirt in mustard.
For a boho vibe, try combining it with an another must for this season “Martini Olive” commonly known as khaki. Pair some flowy pants in this colour with a mustard coloured jumper and voilà!
If you don’t want to steer away from your usual casual-chic style but still want to incorporate the mustard trend, try navy blue. Go for a two-piece suit in navy blue and incorporate the mustard in your shirt together with white. Give a finishing touch with a scarf!
For the Classic and Chic
If you prefer a classic and simple style, the perfect colour update for you this season is green. With quetzal green (a deep teal) and olive green (a muted khaki) being leading shades for the season, these standout shades were seen across the catwalks, and offer a great way to add a little colour to your winter outfit.
Style it with:
For a classic and timeless style, try teaming either shade with a base shade of black. We love an over-sized shirt in quetzal green or olive green, teaming with a pair of skinny or straight leg jeans, and a boyfriend blazer in black.
To soften the look, try teaming either shade with a mellow rose or nude. Pair a relaxed green blazer with a nude knit, tucked into a pair of jeans for a boho feel, or opt for green high waist trousers and a chunky cropped knit in mellow rose to add that extra femininity.
For the Ultra Feminine
If you favour pink and feminine tones, the perfect colour update for you this season is burgundy. This beautiful rich shade is a great way to add depth and vibrancy to your look. Sophisticated and feminine, there’s just something about burgundy that always looks expensive and stylish.
Style it with:
Always elegant and classic, the perfect colour to style burgundy with is beige. Try a pair of slim fit burgundy trousers, teamed with a longline knit in beige. Tie the look together with a floral print scarf in burgundy tones.
For a more urban and casual style, burgundy looks amazing styled with a light denim. Try layering a burgundy jersey dress with a pale blue denim jacket for an amazing off-duty look.
Finally, try styling this shade with khaki for a simple and chic style. We love a floral blouse in burgundy tones, teamed with a khaki skirt and layered with a burgundy knit.
In addition to these great shades, there will also be a lot of focus on plum, indigo, retro browns, gold, silver, urban orange, violet and even neons. Which colour trends will you be trying this season?
