NEW COLOURS FOR AW17: PURPLE

By Lakeisha Goedluck, 17 October 2017

This season, it’s all about infusing your wardrobe with unexpected shades. From Christopher Shannon to Prada, copy the styles seen on the catwalks back in January and go for a rich, retro palette. Purple is a key hue for AW17, so compile a ’fit in varying shades of the colour for a tonal look that ticks the right sartorial boxes.

For your base, nail the 70s streetwear aesthetic and go for a grape-coloured track jacket with a standout zip. Switch tones and pick a Vetements-style oversized hoodie in a regal aubergine shade to wear over the top. As your getup is predominantly purple, you need to counterbalance the colour with neutral pieces – layer up with a cream houndstooth coat to pare down the vibrancy of your top half.

Follow suit down low and opt for a pair of side-stripe corduroy bottoms in navy. Choose a pair with an off-white stripe in order to correspond to the minimalist vibe of your coat. On foot, rock a pair of Reebok Revenge Plus TRC trainers that feature the colours of your coat and trews to tie your look together. To finish, tip your hat to the highly popular 70s dad trend with a velvet coral cap.
