The 4 Colours You Should Be Wearing This Autumn Winter

Outfit: Dress - Custom (similar here) / Jeans - Levis / Shoes - Charles & Keith (only dark blue available) / Bag - Charles & Keith (similar)

Summer's passed us by and I'm kind of sad about that, but also that just means we are closer to Christmas and if you know me, you know that I'm this biggest Christmas idiot. But we've still got time in between, so reel it in Emily.

We're heading to transition time where our wardrobes, though they may still be confined more to our homes than the outside world, are switching up. Instead of reaching for those lightweight, floaty dresses, the itch to grab a cosy sweater will overtake. When it comes to the cooler months, the colours that dominate our wardrobes usually end up being very neutral, swaying towards blacks, greys and nudes (because when is anyone ever going to stop wearing nude tones? Never). But this upcoming season seems to hint that there's more colour staying that we realise. 

Baby Blue: Blue is a colour I will wear forever, regardless of season because it's my favourite colour. Any shade, I'll take it. But for this AW20 season, baby blue is going to be the talk of the town. At least I think it is. Though it would be considered a more summery tone, baby blue has a way of lifting neutrals and making them softer which will contrast the outside atmosphere. It's such a sweet colour that will bring 

Favourite piece: The Zara coat, oh how I want it.


Green: This colour is coming out of the woodwork more and more for me and I am so happy about it. It's one of those colours that exudes power and energy. Usually as we transition, the more olive and army tone greens take the lead but I'm going to be controversial and say that this year, I think the jewel tones might just make a surprise appearance. Look, with 2020 anything can happen and I personally would like to see it. Hints of green, especially emerald, are going to pop up this season in my opinion and I think it will be another beautiful contrast to the typical dark colours that come with the colder months. I also think the sage rage that's going on right now is going to continue for the rest of the year too.

Favourite piece: The Christian Louboutin Irizas in Croc-Effect Green, ugh.


Brown: *Cue "Brown Skin Girl" by BeyoncĂ©*. We're all pretty accustomed to now wearing nude tones on the regular, with skin tones playing a big part in that so of course browns may already be in our wardrobe for everyday wear. But for AW20, browns are not just going to be limited to nudes. I'm talking rich, deep browns. I personally think brown is going to be the new black for this season. Don't quote me on it, but I just think it's going to take a front seat in many wardrobes. It's going to be a colour that will be work across all items, whether it be clothes or accessories, and I can feel some really good monochrome brown looks coming. For me the chocolate browns are where I'm headed (and no it's not just because I'm a chocaholic). They really do give a rich edge to an outfit and I think a lot of people will be wearing the colour for that reason. 

Favourite piece: That first dress from H&M or the Nanushka one shoulder jumper!


Red: During the AW20 runway shows, the colour red made a big statement in collections from Valentino, Bottega Veneta, Balenciaga, Giambattista Valli and more. So it's safe to say that it's a contender as a statement colour for the season. I personally think that this colour is going to dominate more as an accessory as opposed to a full look. I think brightening up your already staple neutral or monochrome tones with a pop of red is going to heighten not only your outfit but your mood. The best ways to add a pop of red are either on your lips or with a bag or shoes. I personally would love to accessorise my A/W looks with the iconic Pouch from Bottega in any of the red tones or textures they have it in. Or even with a pop of red from the insoles of my Louboutins might be the ticket. Either way, having that little pop of red is going to bring something extra and statement to your looks. 


From looking at the runways and what is coming into stores like Net-A-Porter right now, I have to say that these colours are dominating for the Autumn Winter season. What colours are you gravitating towards? Are you sticking with the usual neutrals or branching out with colour? I think we're all looking to be experimental after the year we've had so far, so take the plunge with colour. 

Sending you lots of love and hoping you're staying safe, 

Emily xx
