Autumn has long been associated with more muted shades on the colour spectrum, from earthy tones of brown to maroon and mustard. The appearance of Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice latte signals the return of one of our four favourite seasons. As soon as the temperature drops below 15 degrees, we’re on a one-woman mission to layer. If you’re a fan of electric brights or 99.9% of your wardrobe is black, you might need a bit of extra style inspo for pulling off autumnal colours – this is where we’re happy to to come in.
Andrea proves that rust and maroon are an unlikely yet stylish colour combo! Her ribbed two-piece highlights how knitwear can be far from boring courtesy of the knot front detail and asymmetric hem (supermodel Ashley Graham also wore this Lavish Alice number FYI).
Do like Juliette and carry the athleisure trend into the new season by pairing your sporty stripes with mustard and A/W’s must-have accessory: the baker boy hat. The ruched detailing and high-neckline of the top creates a smart-caj feel so it’s more Victoria Beckham than sporty spice (sorry Mel C).
Cable knit jumpers, knee-high boots and tartan scarves are the ultimate autumnal hattrick, and this trio are cold-weather style staples for good reason thanks to their timeless appeal. Steal Elizabeth’s style by mixing and matching your rich browns with caramel hues to elevate even the most minimal of outfits.
Red proved to be a hugely popular shade throughout summer (even giving millennial pink a run for its money) and Holly’s doing the perfect job of showcasing how the hardworking hue can be carried into autumn. Extra fashion kudos for sporting a jumper that features embroidery in all shades of the autumnal colour spectrum.
No two colours signify the outdoors quite like green and brown, but we’ve always avoided mixing the two due to an irrational fear of looking like a park ranger (just us?). Dauby has definitely made us reconsider though after this effortlessly chic look. Add a slight edge to a minimal outfit by combining with animal print – leopard in particular always looks fierce.
Be a walking contradiction like foxxtailz in this pumpkin shade, by pairing with delicate frilled socks and chunky brogues. The oversized fit and sheer tights add an effortless rocker vibe while the subtle ruffles on her sleeves retain a girlie element.
