Mustard yellow, forest green and delicious berry shades: the key colours of autumn have arrived. Whether worn head-to-toe for a look that commands attention or spliced with denim for something a little more subtle, this season’s signature hues promise to play an indispensable role in your AW18 wardrobe. Here’s how to wear them…
1. Green Light
Far removed from its pastel counterparts, rich, leafy shades of green are now vying for our space in our new-season wardrobes. Wear the colour of the moment all at once with a tonal checked blouse and skinny-fit denim, and pare it back with understated accessories in soft black suede.
2. Notes of Burgundy
Want to wear mustard the modern way? Add an accent colour. Designed in ochre, this military-style blouse is best worn with black denim and lifted with bursts of burgundy – think block-heeled boots and a matching bag. Offset the autumnal palette with a long-line coat in a cool, classic shade.
3. Checks, Please
As the crisp breeze of autumn takes hold, coats start to regain their relevance – but this season, there’s no need to stick to just one colour. Crafted from a soft, sumptuous blend of wool, and patterned with heritage checks in teal, maroon and oatmeal, this coveted cover-up is a boldly stylish way to take on the key colours of autumn. Wear yours with simple yet effective accessories.
4. Forest Tones
Looking to seamlessly blend colour into your AW18 wardrobe? Pick a statement knit. Designed in deep green, this cosy layer pairs wonderfully well with denim or – for the fashion brave – black cord dungarees. Tie the colours together with a green checked scarf and lace-up ankle boots in black.
5. Modern Mustard
For autumn days filled with cloudless skies, make mustard yellow and blue denim your go-to style combination. Opt for an embroidered blouse in crisp cotton – perfect for wearing now and right through till spring – and team with your trusty pair of skinnies. Add a seasonal update with a wine-hued floppy hat and black slouch boots.
