How to wear colour this Autumn 

Thursday 28 Apr 2022


Leaves are falling, the temperature’s dropping and now’s the time to update your wardrobe so you can stride out into the chill with confidence. As the days become cooler, your colour palette can move towards richer, cosier hues – brown, khaki, burgundy and black. Here’s how to inject some darker shades into your outfits, without looking like a pile of wilted leaves.

The layered chocolate look

Turtlenecks aren’t just for Keynote presentations – they're a stylish and practical way to shield against wind and chill during the cooler months. This trans-seasonal smart-casual look will keep you snug all the way through winter and beyond. The fitted Dezra Roll Neck in brown marle is breathable and effortlessly stylish with fine rib detailing. Add a matching coat, a pair of elegant walnut Damiano Boots, then break up the darker tones with neutral chinos. Throw on a tan-tinged Curtis Scarf for additional texture, and you’ve nailed the brief for your next outdoor gathering.

If you’re dressing to impress, choose tailored blazers that complement the colours beneath. This look champions the rich tint of burgundy in the super soft Twill Shirt, the fitted Debonair cotton crew knit and the checks on the navy Chase Blazer. The blazer provides comfortable stretch in a slim fit; a sentiment echoed in the dark jeans. It’s smart, stylish, and undeniably sharp – the perfect outfit to complement a glass of red.

Maybe you’re more of a blacks and greys man. If you lean towards darker palettes, get acquainted with charcoal hues and textured details to add extra distinction to your outfit. For more formal occasions during autumn and winter, layer the Mono Long Sleeve Shirt with the Dezra Roll Neck. The shirt features a superfine check and contrasting buttons for a subtle, understated pop. Pair with slim black jeans, black ankle boots and a matching coat for a low-key yet dapper vibe. All set for cool days and chill nights!
