Let’s talk some colour

We are currently working on the AW21 range with exciting fresh silhouettes, new fabrics and a rich blendof colour. To curb some of the excitement, we are just too eager to share, we thought now would be the perfect time to walk you through our brand new colour palette for the AW21 range.

We are BIG fans of colour and print! And this season will be no different with the colours being reminiscent of a walk through an autumn forest –  rich, warm, and somewhat muted with an earthy feel to it.

At first glance it may seem hard to know which colours work together and which ones just don’t until it’s (inevitably) too late, and you already left the house🙈. But if colours make you just as happy as me, it’s all about finding a balance. Pairing colours in a way that is not too in your face, and remains true to your style.  From the classic pairings you’ll wear day in and day out to the more daring duos to try when you’re feeling particularly fashiony.

Below we have put together a cheat sheet to help you pair this season’s colours in outfits by using a bit of colour theory. We specifically look at contrasting and tonal colours.

Our Colour Palette Cheat Sheet

Tonal colours

Tonal colours are different shades of the same hue, the same colour. For example, shades of red that could be combined in an outfit include pink, bright red, and/or deep burgundy. The feel here is a cohesive and harmonious soft nuance of colour.

Complimentary colours

Complimentary colours are colours exactly opposite each other on the colour wheel. Examples: green and red; blue and orange; yellow and purple. The effect is a really popping contrast of colour that can create a bold and electric look!

Neutral Colours

Oh and if your wardrobe is a haven of beige, cream, black and a tight edit of hues … I think it is important to note that you can be minimalist and still include a bit of colour. It is all about carefully choosing colours that make you happy and that you can integrate into your wardrobe in a well thought out and streamlined manner.

The simplest way to add some colour to your wardrobe is to strategically use a pop of accent colour (think accessories). Or consider a single colour paired with neutrals. A base of white, cream, navy, greyor black sets off a pretty colour and gives a strong, conservative look that is still highly stylish. Once you’ve mastered that, you can start experimenting with other contrasting colours and tonal outfits!
