Every season has an ‘IT’ colour – for summer it was every shade of purple – from the palest lilac to the punchiest ultra violet. As summer turns to autumn, so the shades are changing. Taking inspiration from nature – this AW18 trend edit is all about those berry hues, muted purples, plums, raspberries and pinks. Here’s our edit of the most flattering hues to add colour to your wardrobe, this season:
This Burgundy faux shearling biker jacket from M&S is a steal at £59. Great for toughening up floral maxis (another trend for AW18), but more flattering than black, and perfect for layering over our LTD collection of white luxury tees, with a design twist.
This pastel lilac loop cardi from London designer, MiH Jeans, taps into this season’s ‘statement jacket’ trend. Keep your layers simple to balance the look with kick flares and a classic long-sleeved tee.
These velvet, straight-leg trousers from Boden are double-trend-whammy. Velvet is ‘the’ texture for autumn (along with cord and tweed) and in this rich plum hue they are the perfect jewel shade. Team with a hint of leopard print and a warm navy tee for a smart casual work look.
This cosy, wool-blend a-line skirt from Zara in pale blueberry says pure Hygge to us. Teamed will a simple flattering fit tee to balance the shape, camel coat and tan leather accessories – the perfect luxe workwear for autumn.
The new John Lewis & Partners womenswear collection is all shades of gorgeousness this September – they have nailed colour blocking in the most feel-good hues, like this raspberry double-faced collar coat. Raspberry is one of the most flattering pink hues to wear that’s both on-trend, yet grown-up. Team with navy for the perfect Autumn palette.
