HOW TO DO AUTUMN WITH AN EDGE

By Maybelle Morgan, 7 May 2018

Autumn style – it can be tricky to nail in-between-weather attire without having to go all-out head-to-toe in dark and sombre tones. The key is to strike a balance between lighter and brighter shades, mixed with sturdy textured staples. And who better to show you the light than this street-styler, who's hitting the sweet spot with this eclectic look…

If the wallpaper-florals aren't your vibe, this alternative packs a bold punch, as exhibited by this Paris Fashion Week goer. The skate-vibes graffiti-print midi dress makes for a loud centrepiece, and the cropped raw-edge denim jacket and jet-black leather boots immediately dilute the colour palette, make it day-appropriate. For an additional nod to new season? Pretty detailing on the accessories, but with a twist (check the glittery sunnies and shark-print rosebud tote).

For your own take, enlist the help of this 80s-style party-season fave: a silky magenta midi in oversized Scandi fit. The distressed light-wash denim jacket instantly dresses it down, plus the cropped length adds flattering structure. A pair of black, all-weather Dr. Martens will help to grunge up the look. And as for accessories, keep it wearable for day with sleek black Ray-Ban aviators, plus a monochrome striped shopper in 80s-garish fantastic plastic.
