Styling this season's prints - for Autumns


Prints work so well for your rich, blended, tonal Autumn palette. They bring the feel of texture and layers of colour that add to the depth and warmth of your natural colouring. Whether you choose to pull out the brights from this season's prints in the rest of your outfit or pair them with neutrals, they'll add so much to all your cold weather looks. Let's take a look at some of this season's prints and how to turn them into outfits to wow.

Style notes

Is there anything cooler than a Breton top? Our relaxed fit Monaco top is the ultimate in effortless chic, while the 100% cotton interlock keeps it cosy feeling (there's also room to layer a cami underneath!). I've kept this look fairly 'teal' focused, but added a Chestnut Chloe Jacket to keep it firmly in Autumn territory and add more depth to the look - if you want to keep it more tonal and love the Deep/Blue Autumn colours, opt for Soft Blackberry or Laguna.

Style notes

How gorgeous is our flirty new Millie Skirt? I love the combination of retro check print and feminine styling. I've paired it with a cosy but waist enhancing Merino Crossover in a brighter Oak Leaf shade, but kept the other pieces neutral, for a pretty look that still feels 100% Autumn.

Style notes

Wearing an all-over print can feel a little intimidating, so I've kept this outfit somewhat tonal to stop it becoming overwhelming - I've very kept to a Warm/Leaf Autumn look. Layering up the Mustard Silky Roll Neck keeps the look cosy and cold weather ready, but because it picks out a shade that harmonises with the print of the dress, doesn't feel overboard on the colour front. The Cashmere Gauze Stole adds even more warmth and luxury. If I wanted to add another layer I might go for a Burnt Orange Lambswool Coatigan, picking out and harmonising with the colours from the print.

One final thing

Because we have so many prints this season (hurrah!), it's simply impossible for me to show you every styling option for every print for each season, so I've shown a selection of three here, with another three options in your 'partner' soft and tonal palette, Summer. So if you want even more colour inspiration, which just needs a little translation to work for your warm, rich seasonal palette, head over to the Summer blog post for more styling tips and ideas.
