Tips For Seasonal Dressing

3 Colour Palettes to Wear this Autumn: Tips for Seasonal Dressing

As the long (not-so hot!) days of summer draw to an end, we’re looking forward to layering up in cosy knits and rich autumn colours.

This season, trade the ice-cream pastels and florals of spring and summer for bold, colour-block styles. Whether you stay tonal and add texture in browns, blacks and beiges, or choose opulent jewel toned clothes in ruby reds, emerald greens or sapphire blue, discover your new autumn style with Cotton Traders today.

Colourful autumn outfits
1. Dress up in jewel tones

Rich, warm and thoroughly elegant, jewel tones are an elegant way to welcome autumn. Some of the most common jewel tones are shades such as emerald green, ruby red, deep blue or teal, and mustard yellow.

When you’re dressing with jewel tones, be sure to add softer accessories: scarves and knitwear can add a new dimension to your look. Blend together a combination of colours and tactile textures to really stand out from the crowd.

2. Be bold in reds & russets

The beauty of autumn is a sight to behold - and, as the leaves turn from green to yellow and yellow to orange, you can mirror the magnificence of nature in your everyday looks.

Reds and russet shades might seem like an obvious choice for autumn, but that’s for a reason — these classic outfits will never go out of style.

Whether you turn to trousers at the beginning of each day, or like to mix it up with different dresses or skirts, russet shades can be worn in any style. If black tights feel too stark, experiment with grey woollen ones for extra warmth — finished with a pair of brown boots, it’s the ideal look for autumn.

3. Cosy up in soft neutrals

If you’re choosing to stick with neutrals this autumn, don’t be afraid to indulge in texture instead of colour. Layer up soft-on-the-skin T-shirts with cosy knit cardis, or pair suede boots with soft and floaty skirts.

Here, contrast is crucial. Accessorise with coloured jewellery or a handbag in muted tones — or, if you prefer to keep things on the minimal side, choose brown cords or black jeans.
