The One Colour That Will Earn You Brownie Points This Season Is...

Brown is the new black.

The colour brown is not usually an obvious first choice. While the shade can be earthy and comforting, it can also seem drab and dull, taking a back seat to brighter, eye-catching tones like millennial pink and living coral. But in spite of this, the understated autumnal hue is fast becoming a favourite having had a stellar runway season in Spring/Summer ’19, ranging terracotta to camel and brown granite to its lighter cousins of beige and taupe. Phillip Lim, Roksanda, Jil Sander, Chanel, Dior and Balmain are but just a few of the names that heralded the return of the aforementioned hues. Less harsh than black, it is also a trusty colour (read: wardrobe staple potential) that works well regardless of personal style. In short, add them to your wardrobe, pronto.
