The stuff that makes it onto size zero models and down the catwalk can be at the very least a little bit scary and at the very most downright ridiculous but there are ways to make women’s fashion clothing work for you. The best thing to pick out from the autumn/winter collections this year are the colours; choose from khaki greens, burnt oranges and rusts, wine and plum purples and classic camel and you will get it right no matter what your style is or what items of clothing you choose.
If your style is casual and you can usually be found sporting comfortable clothing such as harem trousers, waterfall cardigans, hooded capes or an on trend women’s crop top, then why not stick to these items but invest in them in one of the on trend colours mentioned above? None of the colours for the upcoming season are garish or difficult to wear, quite the opposite in fact, they are eminently wearable no matter what your skin colouring, body shape, age or style.
Choose khaki or warm, rusty oranges if you are blonde haired and blue eyed as both colours will bring out these features and give you a real luminance during the often grey winter months. If you have olive or dark coloured skin, camel is absolutely gorgeous and softly sophisticated no matter what the occasion. Soft and chunky knits in camel, beige and cappuccino are great for wrapping up when it’s cold without looking frumpy or shapeless and the colour really complements warm skin tones and the gorgeous brunettes amongst you.
Wines, purples and plums are great for adding drama, sophistication and colour to any wardrobe and help you to stand out for all the right reasons. These colours can be worn as thick tights with a black dress or mini skirt and can look equally as good as long sleeved silk blouses, long line cardigans and pencil skirts, so don’t be afraid to experiment with these shades.
Pair your favourite jeans with a white long line vest and a women’s crop top in khaki, burnt orange, plum or camel for a casual but cool look that it great for the pub or the shops. When the weather turns a bit colder, swap the crop top for a boyfriend cardigan and a luxurious wrap in camel or plum. For a dressier look, pair a woollen pull-on mini skirt in black, khaki or plum, with slim fitting, long sleeved tops in any of the other seasonal colours and you’ll look a million dollars every time.
