5 colours that will be on trend for autumn/winter 2021
Article posted: April 6, 2021
Versatile, timeless colour is the sartorial theme for autumn and winter this year, and industry forecasters at the Pantone Color Institute describe them as being “imbued with strength and personality”.
Fashion lovers can rejoice – this is a season of bold colour mixed with key classics to create a fresh, definitive look.
New York and London designers have been working with a palette of strong singular colours, the institute reports, combining them with more neutral seasonal staples.
The institute’s Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman says the palette reflects a “less is more” mindset that is “becoming increasingly important to consumers prioritising value and functionality”.
The fashion boutiques of Camberwell are embracing the look, so this style is easy to find and put together.
Here are the colours you’ll love to wear in autumn/winter 2021.
Think grass, ferns, or a striking emerald. This gorgeous rich green hue is everywhere.
Wear it as a statement piece, such as a luxe knit top, and pair it with a dark or neutral colour.
Alternatively, go big and wear it top-to-toe in a maxi skirt and cotton top combo, or a linen-mix dress that can take you seamlessly from autumn to winter.
We’ve been loving this shade of pink in homewares, on cushions, throws and bed linen, and now we get to wear it.
This soft, powdery colour is a subtle shade of pink and works wonderfully with this season’s relaxed-fit styles and oversized shirts and blazers.
Pair it with white basics and you’ll have a pop of colour that’s romantic but mature.
Don’t be afraid of this bold colour – it looks great with jeans, or neutral linen pants or skirts.
It’s a cheerful, attention-grabbing hue, so a single item speaks loudly. Accessorise with it until you find your confidence.
If a block of bright yellow is too much for you, look for it in stripes or layered into a pattern of other colours.
Otherwise, take it down a notch by seeking out a more mellow yellow. Choose the shade that works for you and you’ll still be bang on trend.
This calming colour isn’t as meek as it seems – its beauty can elevate almost any outfit.
While not as loud as a burst of yellow, it still adds brightness to any outfit. Blue is a cool, wintry colour but this more subtle hue has a slight warmth to it.
Powder blue exudes cosiness in soft knits and oozes femininity in dresses.
Pale peach has an earthier tone than pink and is a flattering colour on most skin tones. It’s an easy-to-wear shade and works well with other colours, such as white, for a fresh, preppy look or grey for a more muted, classic style. It also looks great with pale denim jeans.
Look pretty in peach this autumn in a long-sleeved silk or linen shirt, or a midi pleated fine-fabric skirt.
The softness of the colour means you’ll find it in luxurious fabrics and all things frilled or ruffled.
