Style guide: Three Easy Colour Combinations

Sometimes adding new colours to your wardrobe can be a little daunting, as can stepping outside of your own colour combination comfort zone. But with each season comes new trends, new tones and new pairings to try. With this in mind, we’ve chosen our three favourite combinations from our Autumn season to suit all tastes and styles…

Refashioning the classic tones of navy and camel; these pieces can be easily accessorised for an occasion or paired down for simple but elegant relaxed dressing. The knitted blazer is a wonderful lightweight cover-up for the season, made in a soft blend of cotton and wool, with elastane to maintain its shape and the matching navy classic trousers are a versatile year-round essential. Each piece looks especially gorgeous when matched with the wardrobe staple, easy-care camel turtleneck made in best quality Italian-spun merino wool.


Create an effortless, chic outfit by combining this season’s on trend colour with the ultimate colour pairing go-to. Opt to make a statement in the gorgeous quilted coat, classic grey trousers and grey turtleneck. Or pair subtle details like our unusual chain necklace and beautiful leather handbag with our fully-fashioned dress, knitted with luxurious mélange yarn in Portugal.


This outfit truly emanates the warm hues of Autumn. The fully lined pull-on skirt features a traditional paisley design in soft, warm touch fabric and creates a lovely, feminine silhouette with its six-panels that flare into a graceful sweep at the hemline. The slight rowanberry tones in the design of the skirt are accentuated by the simple and charming cotton v-neck top, knitted with yarn spun in the UK and finished with pretty pointelle shell edging on the neckline.
