You may be sorted for your layers this season but stuck for inspiration shade wise. With so many emerging trends we’ve narrowed down three new colours for you to incorporate into your closet this winter.
Just because the nights are getting darker; this doesn’t mean it should be reflected in your daily look. Have a look at these three refreshing colour-ways to add some edge to your look this season…
Seen on the runway at Louis Vuitton’s AW14 Collection, it was apparent that claret was to make a big statement this year. Slick, refined and unpretentious; a well-cut wool blazer teamed with black layers and shiny boots gives a new lease of style to winter dressing.
Following suit, Claret is the deep shade that comfortably sits between burgundy and dark red. Offering the wearer a chic and bold statement. Versatile and smart, it’s complimentary to shades of clean whites, brown and grey.
This colour can be incorporated easily into your look even if it’s just in one layer or accessory.
Emerald green is a jewel shade that has been favoured by some of the world’s most renowned designers this Autumn/Winter. Valentino showcased emerald green outerwear in classic trench coats combined with layered contemporary prints to warn off the cold.
Another versatile colour, this illustrious shade will happily go with everything in your wardrobe, especially white, black and accents. Making a bold statement in a knit teamed with distressed black denim or even suiting – emerald green is the winning ingredient when it comes to an ace recipe for personal style.
If you feel like it’s not really your thing, this shade can always be translated into a simple statement by the addition of an accessory or footwear. When it comes to shoes, emerald green creates a really unique look – dress some smart suede brogues down with your favourite pair of dark denim for equal measure.
This exotic warming shade of red is strikingly bold and was debuted in Jil Sander’s cohesive Autumn/Winter 2014 collection. Clean lines and well-defined suiting established the core of Sander’s pieces. Colour blocking was featured throughout, giving the formal and elegant collection a modern edge.
This shade works incredibly well with most colours you may have already in your closet. It’s very traditionalist yet understated if you get your colour combos on point. Wear this confidently with clean whites, taupe, black and greys.
It will also suit bright accents, but in order to make it a focal point of your look – make sure it’s the boldest piece preferably in the form of a jacket or trouser. If you’re dressing for a special occasion it compliments suiting and shirting perfectly.
Navy and tan also do it style justice, so you won’t be stuck for inspiration!
On That Note…
We hope you have enjoyed our introduction into colour for this Winter. At this time of year it’s great to experiment with something a little different. With the addition of one new colour to your wardrobe – you will feel an instant lift in your daily look.
Enjoy shopping around whether it be for a claret jumper, emerald green chinos or a Siberian red sneaker.
