“What are the main colours you will be/are wearing this season?”
One of the things people frequently comment on regarding my style is the lack of colour. I tend to gravitate towards the same colour palette when I’m not feeling inspired, resulting in neutrals, greys and blacks a lot of the time! However, my favourite seasons are autumn and winter, which means I am much more inspired by colours and prints and different ways of styling outfits (it is so cold that layering is absolutely essential!).
Colour-wise, I think my autumn wardrobe is inspired by warm toned colours and things that look quite luxurious. I could easily delve into my Fashion Styling knowledge and tell you all the historical influences, but I’ll save that for my upcoming essay 😉 I like rich tones for autumn, as they really warm up my complexion. The first outfit is one of the outfits I styled for the Clotheshow Live contest. Got everything crossed that I somehow get through to the next round! I especially LOVE burgundy colours in autumn, especially paired with a deep emerald green in this outfit. Also, not forgetting the colour of the season – camel. I’ll probably be injecting camel into my outfits through shorts.
For winter, I play on what I wear throughout autumn and gravitate towards petrol blues, emerald greens, a subtle hint of gold (it’s festive ‘n all that!) and some creams and pale greys. I also like the Christmas knit/Fairisle trend at the moment! I also tend to look to colours that “would look good in the snow”! Not gonna lie, that is my genuine mindset when I shop! I also find that because it is SO cold generally, I wear block dark colours, accessorised with hints of red or pale blue and grey, maybe in a scarf of gloves. Accessorising is such a key to the colder seasons, both for warmth and that “cosy” look, so keeping everything else dark is a good option, meaning you can play up the socks worn over your boots, hats, mittens, and other knitted accessories.
