Hero Items: Fall into Winter
As the frost starts to cover the autumnal leaves, it’s time to start thinking about how to transition your wardrobe from one season to the next. However, just because the days are starting to get duller and darker, that doesn’t mean to say that you wardrobe should! Quite the opposite in our opinion!
We’ve put together four looks, merging the warm autumnal shades of yellow, orange and brown, mixed with the rich reds and gorgeous greens most commonly found throughout the festive season!
Each of the accessories have been hand picked to compliment the individual outfit, with some looks only having one statement piece, others using a matching set, or with some featuring an array of accessories to bring together a consistent style.
COSY AND SIMPLE
During the autumn and winter months, whatever the year, a camel coat is one of those pieces that never seems to go out of style. However, rather than pairing it with a scarf that is a similar or darker colour, why not choose our Mhari Scarf in the Mustard and Pink mix? These block colours are perfect for bringing in different shades to your ensemble; for example, inspiring you to match your bag with the deep purple, or lip colour with the pink. The pop of mustard also helps to bring each of the colours together.
We additionally love the size of this scarf, wrapping the soft fibres around you to keep you cosy and warm, once you put it on – you’ll never want to take it off!
As you can probably tell, our Astrid Range is one of our favourites. It’s the perfect set for if you want to match your hat and scarf, but still want to bring together different colours to your look. The shades are similar to our Mhari Scarf, mixing the vivid purples and bright yellows with the added extras of warm oranges and cooling whites. We can’t help but think of the rich autumnal leaves, especially when paired with a camel coat and Lotta from Stockholm Emma Clog Boots in Taupe!
The only other pop of colour that we’ve used with this look is the mustard yellow of the bag, the rest of the outfit is relatively muted toned, with a white roll neck sweater and a checked skirt.
BERRY AND PEA GREEN
Who said you can’t look stylish and festive at the same time? And who said red and green can never be seen? We like to bend the rules here at Powder, lets put something together that works for you – regardless of what should or shouldn’t be done! Our Jess Poncho comes in a Berry and Pea Green block colour mix, perfect for throwing over whatever sweater you decide to wear that day! We’ve also paired it with our Charlotte Hat and Mittens, which coincidently come in both Berry and Pea Green!
To add a bit of sparkle, and to give a slight nod to the changing seasons, we've added a stunning Leaf Necklace by The Quad Collection to help tie the whole look together! It's one of our favourite pieces!
READY FOR RED
Not everyone feels confident enough to wear the colour red but why not be a little bolder this winter season? Brighten up your wardrobe with some of our fabulous Powder accessories in two of our red tones, Berry and Raspberry! It can be difficult to break out of your comfort zone, with black often being main the main culprit. However, the great thing about wearing all black is that it provides the perfect blank canvas.
Start small, pop on a pair of our A-Z Socks on your feet or keep your hands cosy in our Lizzy Wool Gloves. Once you start to feel more comfortable, break out with our Scandi Deer Print Scarf or our Berry Katie Hat!
