HOW TO WEAR BRIGHT COLOURS

The outlook is bright. Add clothes in mood-boosting shades, from red to on-trend pink, to your everyday collection with these easy-to-emulate fall outfits


Ways to wear red

The best antidote to fashion fatigue is peppy new arrivals, starting with this vibrant red sweater from our fall/winter Autograph collection. Styled with this season’s straight-leg jeans and classic white sneakers, it’s the kind of effortlessly confident outfit that will work just as well for a casual meeting as it will for brunch with friends. Alternatively, consider red pants the red lipstick of your wardrobe: the quickest way to add life to an otherwise understated outfit.

Perfect pink outfits

Think pink isn’t for grown-ups? Think again. Showing your style personality through vibrant outfits and powdery pink is packed with contemporary appeal. Our new take on the teddy shacket combines the cosiness of a winter coat classic with the 2021 adoration of the cross-functional shacket. Adding a coordinating beanie is, of course, optional but promises to turn heads throughout the colder months. This cotton sweater dress is perfect for those in warmer climes.


Fresh takes on blue looks

With its connotations of confidence and dependability, blue is the perfect colour for the office, but don’t just save it for weekdays. Amplify its appeal for the weekend by switching navy for this season’s bolder shades like this hyacinth frill-detail blouse (pictured) or keep things simple and soft with a classic cashmere sweater, available in more than 15 shades. Pairing blue with brown-based neutrals like these tan hiking boots or these chocolate knee high boots always makes sense. Complete the look with a great pair of jeans in any indigo hue – an effortlessly chic option for off-duty days.


For the love of lilac

Resistance is futile: you’re going to be wearing a lot of purple clothing this season, whether you opt for low-key lavender sweater with yak wool or a daring jewel-tone midi dress from M&S X Ghost. Purple looks clean and modern when paired with a crisp white shirt: consider it your first port of call if you’re dabbling in the trend for the first time. For a top-to-toe lilac look, try a coordinating longline sweatshirt and sweatpants. Add sneakers, head out and enjoy all-day comfort.
