Colour Carries On

All the fabulous colour that came in for Spring/Summer is carrying on into Autumn/Winter this year. Finally we can get away from last year’s sea of greige. For all you Autumns and Springs out there now is your chance to buy new jackets, coats and jumpers in your warm colours. Srpings will be able to find lots of aqua, turquoise, tangerine and coral. Autumns will find kingfisher, peacock, orange and amber.

Please be careful when buying multi-coloured items. The summer’s hideous combination of mustard and burgundy (mustard and chestnut is so much better) has fortunately gone, but this season’s hideous combination seems to be olive and black. Autumns should go for olive and dark brown instead,  Winters should go for pine green or dark emerald and black, not forgetting of course to add something in one of your ice colours for contrast.



It’s starting to snow in the Alps, so now is a good time to think about what you are going to wear when you get to the slopes. Colours this year are all brights. Cerise, chinese blue and lobelia for Winters, with black or white for ski pants if you don’t want to do colour top to bottom. For Springs the colours are aqua, mint green, canary yellow and shocking pink. It’s been a while since Spring colours have been seen in skiwear, so this year is a good one for getting a new outfit for you. For Summers and Autumns there is not quite so much choice for women. Summers may be able to find something in amethyst or raspberry. There is quite a lot of lime around for Autumns, but most of the chestnut, brick and olive colours are only in the mens section.

Don’t forget to visit your nearest House of Colour consultant to find out if you are Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter.
