AS THE warmer temperatures dictate, the summer is all things bright and beautiful – from shocking fuchsia to juicy tangerine set against a fun and funky backdrop of bold florals and fun prints.
But as autumn arrives, fashion opts for a muted palette and takes its inspiration from the changing landscape. Rich hues of conker, camel, rust and khaki come to the fore to warm up our wardrobes in time for winter.
It is many people’s favourite time of the year, fashion-wise.
The colours and shapes are easier to wear and more flattering and forgiving. And who doesn’t relish the chance to huddle in chunky knits and a rich jersey?
To kick-start autumn/winter 2011, opt for this tonally chic colour palette of nude, tan and brown and turn up the luxe factor with gold jewellery.
Finish off with a vibrant pop with the season’s must-have orange and red tones.
