Autumn Colour Trend Report - Desert Dreams
Welcome to our 2nd colour trend report for the season, this time focussing predominantly on retro rusts and feminine pinks that have swept the fashion industry for AW19. The palette is rich and earthy with a few punchy brights to help lift it. We call it 'Desert Dreams'.
Roo - “The colours for AW19 are just gorgeous and the shapes we’re seeing from our favourite brands are feminine with a masculine vibe Think wide leg cords with nipped in high waists, over-sized shirts with pretty detailing, statement coats with hints of red and pink is just everywhere.”
Alongside pinks and warming oranges, autumnal shades of olive green, rusty reds, gentle browns and powdery blues have also crept into this season’s knitwear, trousers and accessories. Here's Roo’s favourite key pieces from the autumn collection, and alongside Bex, Betta and Amy, here's how to style them...
Roo - "My favourites from the autumn collection definitely lean towards the colourful side, featuring true tropical vibes by mixing punchy pinks and mellow yellows with plain greys and greens. These picks really scream 'happy clothes' to me, wearing them just makes me feel good and smile too."
Roo wears: The Free People See The Rainbow Grey Jumper with the Free People Chartreuse Green Dani Tank Top underneath, L.F Markey Olive Classic Slacks with the Bellerose Dalia Fluro Pink Leather Belt. The whole look is completed by the funky Vans Anaheim Era 95 DX Leaf Print Trainers and finally the very cool Rachel Jackson Love Silver Ring!
Bex - "Autumn is here and it is by far my most favourite season for styling. We have so many styles of trousers and cords, I just can't wait to mix things up this season. Saying this... what will I do without my denim shorts?!!!
The colours for autumn are soft and warming, so first up on my top pick list from the autumn collection is the American Vintage Basalt and Poppy Boolder Cardigan. So chunky and warm, it's the perfect throw on item for a pick-me-up glow. Pair with the amazing Hartford Beige Leopard Print Charlot Shirt (a pattern trending again this year and running through our collection, intertwined with our fave colour PINK!).
Now, you can either dress this look up or down. I've chosen the Saucony Jazz Original Vintage Green/Black Trainers for a laid-back day-time look and the stand-out glam Penelope Chilvers Leopard Print Clogs. And don't forget to accessorise with an oversized slouchy bag to finish the look!
Betta - "I chose the stunning and feminine Leon & Harper Corey Leaf Black Iris Shirt to go with my Levi's Made & Crafted Men At Work Barrel Jeans. Two completely different styles I know but I think they sing together beautifully. The blue American Vintage Vapcloud Shore Cardigan and super cool pink Saucony trainers are just the two cherries on top. It's all about mixing styles and pushing the boundaries which is easily done here at Roo's Beach ❤"
Amy - "Autumn is one of my favourite seasons of the year. I love it when the weather turns and all the chunky knits start to emerge. I’ve selected these pieces because the colours are great for autumn. American Vintage knitwear is incredible this season and I think the Bellerose Ayo Vintage T-Shirt is perfect... because ‘We love our customers! Pair with Saucony trainers and accessorise with the L.F. Markey Yellow Super Shopper Tote Bag"
