It’s easy to fall into a habit of only wearing neutrals during this time of year – colour is reserved for summer after all, right? But fashionistas are banishing beige and showing us how to step out of our ‘autumnal colours only’ comfort zone by packing a punch in super bright hues from Kelly green to Fuschia. See how they’re styling all colours of the rainbow and how you can get the look too.

Green With Envy

Kelly green has been the #1 colour trend this year so we’re pleased to see it staying around for the darker days too. A bold coat will take monochrome to new heights, and outerwear is a great way to inject one powerful hue into your look whilst keeping the rest neutral – baby steps after all.

Think Pink

This powerful shade ignites confidence and is a force to be reckoned with – a firm favourite regardless of the season. It looks great paired with denim and a contrasting print like leopard, if you’re brave enough. Grace Ghanem proves you can wear colour at any age. Take note.

Off-duty essentials don’t have to be boring, and we love Emili’s choice of bold palette. If you’re accustomed to reaching for a matching tracksuit that blends in, try colour blocking instead. Keep accessories neutral and throw on a classic trench for a touch of finesse.

Tangerine Dream

Give your grey cashmere a day off and inject some life into your coffee run. Red and orange are still technically autumnal hues so are perfect for those wanting to stay closer to home with their colour choices. Pair with black leggings or leather trousers and chunky boots for a chic look with edge.

Pastel Perfect

But aren’t pastels for summer?” I hear you, but why wait for warmer weather? Ice cream colours for the colder months will certainly lighten your mood when daylight is dead. Try swapping your trusty black turtleneck for pink or lilac – these delicate hues look great with light wash jeans.

Blue & Green Should Be Seen

Granted, we tend to gravitate towards darker colours for those cold winter walks around the park, but Leonie’s off-duty look is inspiring us to look alive. When colour-blocking, pick two colours that are complimentary, like green and blue, and mix with neutral hues for balance.
