Once the colder weather approaches, there are a few key things we can always expect. Firstly, on weekdays at least, we’ll be rising earlier than the sun. Secondly, we’ll begin daydreaming about open fireplaces. And thirdly, we’re about to start seeing a whole lot more beige, brown, and orange tones on the rails and in new-in sections. Whether it is because those colours mimic the hues of the changing leaves or simply play contrast to the bright colours we typically wear earlier in the year, there is something about this season that has everyone dressing in warm, cosy tones and timeless neutrals.
It’s a tried-and-trusted colour palette that we know we turn to year after year, as each shade looks good individually but also seamlessly complements the other. We’ve noticed members of the style set also getting on board with the colour combinations, as many of our fashion friends have been posting idyllic images dressed in shades of beige, cream, grey, navy and brown. For those wanting to add a little more colour, orange and a deep shade of burgundy have also been on high rotation.
While black is also on the list for this season and never fails to look slick, we’re choosing to prioritise lighter colours. Not only do we know they will see us through the cold months, but they’ll also look just as good once the spring sun starts to show.
