Brush up on our colour coordination, the autumn / winter 2017 fashion season is upon us. From dark colours that are best worn head-to-toe to pops of colours that will bring your wardrobe into the here and now. I have made a quick guide to my key autumn-colours and how to style use them.
The guide might help you to find your new favourite shades, so you can go frolic around - autumn style.
BROWN is my all-time favourite autumn-colour. Chestnut in particular - aka see my current hair colour. The soft brown VILA bomber jacket I’m wearing is ideal for fall, especially with its detachable fake-fur collar. I would wear it with a turtleneck-pullover, a skirt or black jeans and a cute beret.
BLACK is also a must-have. Black is elegant, mysterious and chic. When worn with a bold, red lip and minimal golden jewellery, it really makes you stand out from the crowd. In summer, I hardly ever wearing black, but once autumn and winter return, I’m back to black. Like this VILA suede and leather-look skirt. I’m also a huge fan of black knits, black leather-look leggings and black dresses with lovely lace details.
PLUM is another favourite of mine. The colour is really flattering, no matter if your hair is black, brown, red or blonde. You can give your outfit a lovely plum-coloured detail on a hat or scarf, or you can go bold with a plum-coloured, cosy knit and eye-shadow (and if you dare, try orange too).
MUSTARD is naturally associated with fall. It looks young and fresh with blue boyfriend jeans in combination with brown, suede accessories like a cross-body bag and 70s inspired boots.
BORDEAUX, named after the famous red wine, is perfect for fall as well. Especially with a simple black and white outfit, a belt and a lipstick in the same shade, makes for a dramatic autumn appearance. Try it out.
