Autumn has begun to settle in and the shades around us subtly shift to gold. This means it’s time to update your seasonal wardrobe. Cooler weather and shorter days see us leaving behind summer brights and breezy linens for something altogether more earthy and textural.
Autumn is often associated with a palette of reds, browns and muted tones but one shade which should feature in your new season update is blue. Blue is one of the most versatile and flattering shades to build your look around. The colour of the sea, the sky, of denim and of crisp navy tailoring – blue behaves like a neutral in your wardrobe. It is perfect for adding depth and interest while retaining sharpness. Make blue your colour this autumn and bring your wardrobe to life.
