The weather was glorious on Saturday wasn’t it? Those rays were beating down, the breeze was light and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. I do hope you made the most of it, because from here it’s all down hill.
Granted, though we didn’t have much of a summer this year, there was always the hope that the sun would come out of hiding and it did, at least for a few days. But now it’s time to put away that barbecue, drain the paddling pool and start raking those leaves – autumn is just around the corner.
But it’s not all doom and gloom (it is mostly, but not all). Autumn is a great season for reflecting in wardrobe, especially in terms of colour – all those deep reds, burnt oranges and earthy browns are great for stepping out into those blustery days and clear, crisp nights.
Keep reading after the jump for the top five autumnal hues.
While all your mates are hanging on for another day of summer in their sleeveless tees, you’re going to be snugger than the proverbial bug in this crimson polo from Topman (£28). Would look great teamed with a charcoal pair of slacks.
One of my favourites Brands, Penguin, have this lightweight zip up (£69) on offer in a gorgeous oliver colour. Great with jeans, it would also look fantastic with the Topman long sleeve polo (above), worn underneath.
Heavy chords are perfect for the season, especially when they’re in an earthly, chocolate tone. These ones from Fenchurch are just £39.
Burton do somethings right, and this is one of them. I believe the darker the orange, the better, but this plain v-neck jumper is great for the coming autumn, especially at £18.
Mustard-brown Carhartt hat, keeps your bonce warm for just £14.99. ‘Nuff said.
