Autumn Colours are everywhere around us, leaves are turning from green to gold, rust and copper,and the sky is taking on a rich swathe of colours that all herald the start of a new season.
We caught up with resident blogger Emil to talk about his favourite colours for the coming season.
Our resident blogger (Autumn loving) Emil
“I have always loved Autumn, for as long as I can remember it has been my favourite season. I think it’s because i’m not much a sun worshipper and don’t really like cold weather …. the best of both worlds is what Autumn is about. But on a deeper level it’s more about the colours and the feeling in the air.
‘Many years ago I was a hairdresser and my clients always had coppers, brunette and warm blonde colours this time of the year, it made their hair look much more exclusive and expensive looking. This was in the mid 80’s when their was a huge surge in the understanding of colour and how it affected us emotionally and also how we all clearly suit some colours better than others. Have you ever noticed that when you put on a piece of clothing and it makes you look washed out? That’s because it is the wrong colour for your skin tone.
‘We tend to fall into categories of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter tones. I was devastated I was ‘Spring’ when I so wanted to be Autumn based. Fortunately the tones are fairly similar so I manage to wear autumnal shades most of the time.
‘I stay away from black and white whenever possible as they are very dominant and don’t really suit my skin tone.
‘Fortunately ladies have the added advantage of make-up which can enhance skin tone and make it easier to wear almost anything these days. However if you tend to stick to your fave colours which don’t fall into the autumn category all is not lost!
‘Accessories can be whatever colour you want them to be, from a rustic coloured rucksack to a silver necklace with autumnal coloured beads, your Autumn accessories can make any outfit on trend.
‘Of course it’s different for guys but we can still add a hint of autumn, with a cool watch … I really love this awesome time piece from South Audley available here at OceanJ.
‘Have a browse around the site, I know you will find lots of fabulous Autumn themed accessories that you will love. Gail has a great eye and is always ahead of the game when it comes to fashion colours”.
