Autumn has arrived and with it comes all those lovely warm autumnal colours like aubergine, pumpkin and burgundy. Missoni‘s knit button neck jumper combines all of these with a buttercup yellow, a navy and a grey to stop it looking too fusty.
The deep v-neck will allow you to show off a t-shirt, clashing shirt, or even dare I say it a polo neck. Get it from Browns for £430; winter layering has never been so hot.

If you’re into the trouser turn up trend, you’ll know that wearing turn ups with socks was supposed to be a massive taboo. Most fashion followers have paid no attention to this rule, instead taking it as an opportunity to show off their fancy socks. These Pantherella purple socks would make a great addition to any sock drawer.
These are great for time when you want an outfit to clash in a subtle manner. If you have an outfit based on navy blue, purple socks match perfectly with them – giving off the effect that you make an effort but you don’t try too hard. You can get these from Start for £12.
According to Drapers purple is set to make a lasting impression on menswear wardrobes this autumn but I’m not convinced. Steve Cochrane, managing director of independent department store
Psyche in Middlesbrough, said: "Purple is already a big colour and is
going to get bigger. Lilac is popular now, but it’s going to be full-on
purple for autumn." Shades from lavender to plum have proved pretty
popular with buyers but they’ve shied away from block colours opting
instead for stripes or checks.
There are lots of hot colours around at the moment, -brights like coral and sky blue and neutral shades of beige, grey and taupe are still looking fresh, but purple seems to be a bit of a faddy shade. Trend colours are always a bit hit and miss and can sometimes be a bit of an obvious fashion choice. Having said that Uniqlo have a merino wool cardigan on offer in a pretty subtle aubergine colour which I could go for. Are you a purple fan? Take our poll!
