HOW TO WEAR MORE COLOUR

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

GERANIUM RED

The best antidote to wardrobe fatigue is peppy new arrivals, starting with these bright-red chino pants. Styled with a tobacco-brown blazer and a retro slogan tee, 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. Consider red trousers the red lipstick of your wardrobe: the quickest way to add life to an otherwise understated outfit.

POWDER PINK

Think pink isn’t for grown-ups? Think again. From Salvatore Ferragamo to Kenzo, sophisticated all-pink ensembles graced the catwalk for 2019, demonstrating the contemporary appeal of the striking hue. A softly tailored silhouette tempers the playfulness of pastel pink, while a lightweight, stone-coloured mac grounds the palette. Complete the look with a covetable ring-handle bag.

CORNFLOWER BLUE

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 and pairing with relaxed silhouettes and soft textures, such as this tan suede skirt. Think cool, calm and collected, but effortlessly chic.

LUSCIOUS LILAC

Resistance is futile: you’re going to be wearing a lot of purple this season, whether you opt for low-key lavender or a daring jewel tone. 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. Add striped shorts and sandals if you’re jetting off for a sun-dappled vacation (lucky you) or ecru utility trousers for transitional days.
