Making Trends Work For You – Colours
Each season different colours take centre stage and for Autumn/Winter 2018 we’re going GREEN.
The perfect shade for autumnal weather, the key to embracing this trend is to choose YOUR GREEN and wear it in a way that complements your colour characteristics.
Here are my guidelines to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe for the season ahead. Please click on the images to find out where they’re from. Personally, I like wearing greens with neutrals such as navy, charcoal, brown, chocolate, pewter, stone and black:
For those of you who fall into the LIGHT colour category, Autumn/Winter can be a harder time to get hold of the delicate, light shades that make up the majority of your colour palette. Avoid the dark, rich greens that you’ll see in abundance at the moment and instead opt for jade (as shown), petrol or turquoise, which could be worn along, with a darker neutral or even combined with greys and navy next to the face. This is from Marks and Spencer.
Deep, rich colours look beautiful on you so a darker green like pine will work well. Team with dark navy, damson or browns (another key colour trend this season). A statement coat in a gorgeous green will be the perfect addition to your Autumn/Winter wardrobe.
There are so many colours that will work for you in the shops this season. When it comes to shades of green try emerald which has a lot of warm yellow tones in it. Combine with bronze, chocolate, or any neutral such as navy for a gorgeously cosy, Autumnal look. I was wearing this colour yesterday.
The key for you COOL customers is to opt for a shade of green with plenty of blue tones running through it, nothing too ‘warm’ (yellow-based) like the colour for ‘warms’. Remember, this doesn’t have to be an all-over look, Cassis looks gorgeous accessorised with teal or spruce for a subtle nod to this colour trend.
Contrast and vibrancy are key for you when choosing and wearing your colours. Fern and emerald turquoise both look gorgeous worn alone to enhance the sparkle in your eyes, or try mixing them with black-brown to create an Autumnal feel to your look.
Because a tonal look works so well for you, try blending different shades of green in one look. There are many different options for bottom halves in the shops this season, try dark green trousers or jeans worn with soft jade for example. Finish with tan/brown toned accessories as darker shades like black don’t work so well with your medium-depth colour characteristics.
Still confused with greens or other colours which make you look healthier, younger and fitter? Then why not book a colour consultation with me and get it 100% right every time. You will save time and money in the long run.
