Each season different colours take centre stage and for Autumn/Winter 2018 we’re going GREEN.

The perfect shade for Autumnal weather, the key to embracing this trend is to choose YOUR GREEN and wear it in a way that complements your colour characteristics. 

Here are the Colour me beautiful guidelines to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe for the season ahead…

LIGHT

For those of you who fall into the LIGHT colour category, Autumn/Winter can be a harder time to get hold of the delicate, bright shades that make up the majority of your colour palette. Avoid the dark, rich greens that you’ll see in abundance at the moment and instead opt for Petrol or Turquoise, which could be worn along, with a lighter neutral or even combined with light greys and powder pinks next to the face.

DEEP

Deep, rich colours look beautiful on you so a darker green like Pine will work beautifully on you. Team with Dark Navy, Damson or Browns (another key colour trend this season). A statement coat in a gorgeous green will be the perfect addition to your Autumn/Winter wardrobe.

WARM

There are so many colours that will work for you in the shops this season. When it comes to shades of green try Olive combined with Bronze, Amber or even Terracotta for a gorgeously cosy, Autumnal look.

COOL

The key for you COOL customers is to opt for a shade of green with plenty of blue tones running through it, nothing too ‘warm’ (yellow-based). Remember, this doesn’t have to be an all-over look, Cassis looks gorgeous accessorised with Teal or Spruce for a subtle nod to this colour trend.

CLEAR

Contrast and vibrancy are key for you when choosing and wearing your colours. Fern and Emerald Turquoise both look gorgeous worn alone to enhance the sparkle in your eyes or try mixing them with Black Brown to create an Autumnal feel to your look.

SOFT

Because a tonal look works so well for you, try blending different shades of Green in one look. There are many different options for bottom halves in the shops this season, try Spruce trousers or jeans worn with Greyed Green tones on your top-half for example. Finish with tan/brown toned accessories as darker shades like Black don’t work so well with your medium-depth colour characteristics.
