Two major forces have collided to give this autumn a clear colour palette – the rise of neutral, tonal dressing and the influence of the 70s. This means the shops are awash with beige, caramel, tobacco and rusty copper tones which look sophisticated and rich when worn either head to toe or mixed and matched together.
For a rust option try this fine knit.
These look gorgeous with a soft cream blouse or knit. Swap the sandals for appropriate footwear.
Culottes are a key trend for this autumn and you can pair yours with courts, pointed flats or fitted longer boots.
This is a great pair of trousers, in a fab colour. Wear with cream to keep the look light or go for a darker contrast as the days get darker.
This is actually not that shimmery in the flesh – a nice amount of sheen I would say. Great for so many occasions – with a cream knit and camel knee high boots or with a crisp white shirt depending on your office dress code. Alternatively, if tonal isn’t your thing it would work well with black or navy top halves.
This is a lovely brand that I discovered through Instagram. Wear with the Grace & Mila Metallic Gold Sweater £55. I also love Becky’s styling with a splash of animal print – go leopard or snake on your feet/in your hair/on your arm.
I actually don’t think the styling is great here and a tonal pair of books would be much better than these which look too dark and heavy.
This is a lovely skirt you can just as easily wear to the office as with trainers and a tee.
An easy chuck-on dress that looks sophisticated with boots. Layer up with a roll neck underneath when the weather turns.
This is great if you don’t work in a very formal setting as you can dress this up with tailoring or down with jeans.
Now can I just say these are the most comfortable shoes … EVER. I have huge problems finding slip ons that actually fit, never mind are comfortable. But these are they. They also come in the reverse colourway. Only downside is that they won’t fair too well in the wet.
