As Autumn comes closer and we bid farewell to Summer (hopefully that's a good few weeks away!), I automatically start rediscovering old favourites that are chocolate brown in colour. Always having a penchant for all things warm and delicious looking when it comes to fashion, it's no surprise I'm presenting to you a collage of all my favourite fashion finds for Autumn 2014, namely the chocolate brown edit. Having a warm, olive skin tone, I love the colour in particular as it complements me perfectly and makes me appear brighter and more lively as compared to cooler toned colours.
First off, it complements almost everything. By everything I mean chocolate brown looks great layered with greys, taupe, beige, white, black and denims in particular. My favourite look of all time is to pair a brown sweater with blue denims and tan boots, with a beige snood and an ostrich leather handbag. It's effortlessly stylish, laid back yet perfect for everyday wear.
Secondly, the shade instantly looks rich, lush and elegant. There's nothing about this shade like SS14's pastels and neons that will make it appear frivolous, young and teenage like. It's all about grown up, chic and sophisticated fashion this Autumn. I don't know about you but I cannot stand flaunting pastels and neons once Autumn strikes. It's all about warm, rich, decadent shades that compliment the gorgeous weather. This being a perfect colour to transition your wardrobe into warm, wintery months.
Don't want to spend a tonne on revamping your entire wardrobe for Autumn? An easy way is to invest in a warm and cosy chocolate brown fur gilet or a structured handbag in the colour to pair with the rest of your outfits, whilst having a hint of the current season. Both of these will go really well over neutral, dark outfits or clean and crisp brights, simply toning them down and adding some warmth.
Pssttt...this particular brown ostrich leather handbag which is a Birkin lookalike is on sale for £55 here. *link*
Dark brown wallets and belts are a quick and convenient way to add a hint of the scrumptious colour to your Autumn outfit's. I particularly like the skinny belt for olive green and mustard dresses for formal wear. As for the leather wallet, it's a fuss-free yet luxurious one to take with you outside for daily chores, to compliment a soft blue denim, crisp white tee and black patent boots.
