In typical British fashion, the Indian summer is due to arrive any minute now just as we’ve packed away our bikinis and
taken out our coats. But the shops are full of gorgeous Autumn buys, and we recommend you start shopping for the colder weather now – all the savvy fashionistas are doing it. Leave it too late and all you’ll be left with are bargain bin buys.
So what to buy for this Autumn? Well, military style is back in yet again, and so green tights like the Falke Seidenglatt 70 Tights in Military will add a utility feel to your look AND keep you toasty warm. These tights are super luxe and feel as gorgeous as they look! Style them with a multi-pocketed shirt dress for the office or parka coat for a laid back weekend look.
Yellow tights will also be key for a second season – neon is in again, which means you can go as bright as you like with this shade (top tip – bright yellow looks really fresh when paired with colour-of-the-season purple). However, as we’re palette purists (or colour cowards), we prefer the eminently more wearable mustard shade – perfect for autumn. Try the
Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights in Mustard, which will look great peeking out from under a navy or grey cape.
As autumn merges into winter, white tights help to create a frosty feel perfect for crisp, cool winter days. White Falke tights were in last month’s issue of Vogue, teamed with a cobalt blue dress and icy grey trench. When wearing white tights, keep the rest of your outfit
neutral – pure white looks good with cool colours like grey, pale blue and lilac, or you can team cream or ivory tights with warmer colours like beige, taupe and camel.Start shopping your coloured tights for your autumn wardrobe now and in a couple of weeks, when there’s a nip in the air and the sun seems like a distant memory, you’ll be ahead of the game in the best that cosy autumn fashion has to offer.
