During summer, the general rule was the brighter the better. However, as much as we enjoyed covering our summer bodies in cool, bold summery colours, autumn is the season when it is almost impossible to fight the urge to put on basic black pieces. Indeed the darkest shade in the book is also the most irresistible shade there is. Black can be worn as the months gradually reduce in heat with the trick being choosing the right fabrics. For those not yet sure of autumn outfits in black, you can start by pairing the dark shade with a brighter one like red for example. The fiery colour paired with black can never go wrong, below are some black and red ideas for your wardrobe.
Autumn Outfits – The lady wears shorts
A black leather jacket during the end of summer might still look a little odd and out of place. A pair of black shorts however, paired with a sleeveless top, can be chic and weather appropriate. To achieve this look throw on a pair of wool shorts by Thisisnon which are perfect if you live in areas where your summer is coming to an end. A stylish red peplum top by Fabryan will accentuate your waist while giving some colour to the outfit. Accessorize the look with a Sarah Ganot long rose necklace and a pair of AM eye-wear. Some Angarde unisex espadrilles will have you looking fun and complete the outfit with a floral Jack French London black and rose gold Chelsea tote for a flirty finishing touch.
