Create Your Own Style with Autumn Fashion Tips
The leaves are turning, the air is becoming crisp and it’s time to update your look for Autumn 2015. Transitioning from summer to winter needn’t be hard; this season’s looks are all about gender-neutral earthy, natural tones, effortless layering and easy-to-wear chic.
Colours for Autumn are pretty much unisex this year; Pantone – the leading authority on colour – says in its colour trend report that muted, earthy neutrals in grey, green and red form the palette base for dressing for Autumn 2015. Think dark rich greens like sage and olive and deep reds like burgundy and marsala.
It’s not all about dark tones though, layer different shades of paler greys and add Autumn/Winter’s hottest new shade, camel, for a highlight of buttery warmth.
The secret to dressing warm for Autumn is layering. Whether you are dressing for work or an evening out, layers give texture, warmth and the opportunity to add depth to your outfit. Soft cashmere and thin rollnecks and polo necks are perfect for Autumn layering, as are loosely-fitting cardigans with overlarge pockets. Match these with a tailored shirt in on-trend grey.
Trousers are more forgiving this season; they are more loosely-fitted for both men and women. Men’s fashion makes a tip of the hat to the 1970s with muted checks and wider legs, paired with graphic knits in grey and jumpers with blocks of neutral tones. Invest in some well-heeled leather ankle boots to complete the look.
For women, almost bohemian-style floaty dresses and skirts with flaring hemlines are in, accented with Victoriana details like lace, brocades and velvets. Neck-tie blouses are a must-have, along with knee-high skinny boots and comfortable high-end loafers.
Shearling coats for men and women are without doubt the hottest new Autumn fashion style. Luxurious, lightweight and warm, it’s worth spending the money to get the best you can afford. Shearling coats in warm camel tones pair brilliantly with this season’s muted palette of olives, greys and berry reds. Fur will also be a top look, whether it’s worn as a gilet, as edging on a cardigan, the all-important shearling coat or an all-over fluffy jacket.
