Lilac Edit

It is much easier to work out how to wear lilac once you start thinking of it as pink for grown-ups.

Lilac works best when there is a lot of it, and it is not too fussy. A lilac outfit, with clean lines and simple accessories, will look a great deal less old lady-ish and is straightforward way of making a wallflower colour more assertive.

Burgundy and Grey

Thanks to its associations with warm mulled wine, burgundy feels like the perfect hue for this time of year. Throw in a big helping of grey and you have a colour combo that is quickly becoming a fashionista’s favourite.

Autumn Florals

Florals are in fashion all year long, but they don’t need to at all look saccharine. In fact, for fall/winter 2015, they have had a more boyish feel.

Swap pretty for edgy with a contemporary, masculine twist to keep florals looking fresh this fall.

Back to knit

It is that time of the year when we start thinking about softer and warmer textures and long for the jumpers stocked at the back of your wardrobe.
Today I have teamed up the super soft knit with heavy silk blend and pastels.
