Don’t settle for your standard black and white colours when it comes to autumn and winter style. With new arrivals landing onsite daily, we’ve brought together this edit to give you a rundown on how to wear brights for autumn and just how easy it is to take hold of the trend.
Switch up your colour palette and add bursts of purple, forest green, mustard yellow and rust orange to give a lift to the dull season ahead
Mix up the camel and khaki you often see emerging in autumn and dabble in purple. Sported at London Fashion Week earlier this year, it’s fair to say purple was the reigning colour on the runway. Purple is great for layering and styling with dark colours like black and dark greys. It’s a key colour for the outsiders trend for autumn which gives a nod to punk subcultures and bold styling. Keep it minimal in t-shirts and hoodies or go all out in a tricot tracksuit to make an impact.
Mustard yellow is one of those colours you expect to see when autumn hits and there’s a reason behind it. Not sure what to make of yellow? It’s one of the most covetable colours for autumn, despite appearing like it’s hard to pull off. Introducing the mustard hue is a more muted way to style yellow into your new season wardrobe. Its versatility makes it ideal to style with stripes, denim and key outerwear pieces and complements browns, neutrals, black and oversized pieces too.
Orange is the new black. Add warmth to your closet with rust orange. Just like mustard yellow, it’s a prominent colour for autumn that suits all skin tones and adds a lift to washed colours, such as off-white and khaki. Keep to rust orange in small pieces that will look bold. Don’t go overboard otherwise you’re at risk of stepping into roadwork territory. Master the look by investing in t-shirts and sweaters to fully take hold of the trend.
There’s a reason why green hails as the key colour for the season. Whether you’re trialling some moss green or khaki into your outfits, forest green is the colour of the moment to get your hands on. This shade of green allows for a more sophisticated edge on tricot tracksuits and jersey pieces and gives a refreshing update on the outdoor khaki colour palette. Unlike mustard yellow and rust orange, forest green is better in bigger, chunkier doses, complementing black, grey and white. Style with premium grey marl and faux shearling jackets for a quality edge.
