Autumn Hues: The Trendy Colours You Should Be Wearing This Season

If you’ve got any special occasions coming up soon, then you’re probably looking for some trend inspiration for autumn. And when it comes to trends, it’s not only the latest clothing styles that you should be looking at but the colours as well.

While classic, muted autumn hues like gray were all over the Autumn/Winter 2021 runways, we also saw a lot of light and vibrant colours like lilac and fuchsia. Fashion designers, editors, and Pantone all predicted these hues would be everywhere come autumn. And now that the cool season is here, those trendy shades have indeed transitioned from the runways to the streets.

If you’re looking to update your wardrobe with the hottest hues of the season, look no further than Nicola Ross’ collections. Ahead, we’ve got some outfit ideas for you, featuring the trendy colours you should be wearing this autumn.
