The idea that we are right in the middle of the Fall/Winter 2020 season can often be lost on most, because unlike Western countries, we don’t get the joys of watching the trees turn gold and the weather turning cold.
Still, just because we aren’t tucked under layers of woolly knits and scarves, doesn’t mean that we cannot indulge in a spot of autumn-inspired dressing! As part of our ongoing video series, learn how you can rock a Fall-inspired colour palette or wear layered clothing that is suitable for our Singaporean heat!
COLOURS OF THE SEASON
Think of autumn and you’d think of a rich palette of burnt oranges, deep browns, and forest greens. Not only are these colours versatile choices that can work for a multitude of occasions ranging from work meetings to brunch outings, they are perfectly fitted for different skin tones as well.
Warmer skin tones will find that the bright oranges and deep browns of the season to be more flattering on them. Try on LIE’s sculptural orange shirtdress on for starters, and pair it with gold jewellery accents for an outfit that’s best suited for the office.
For a look that’s a little dressier, opt to go with Sean Sheila’s tailored shirt dress instead. Featuring a modified batik print and completed with a waist-cinching pocket belt, this design promises to keep you looking polished all night long.
For cooler skin tones, it’s advisable to look for a colour with a bluish undertone, such as this lilac thriller from TOTON. Festooned with pearl and gem embellishments, team this with a simple skirt or a pair of tailored white slacks.
Another choice picking for cooler skin tones is this beautiful Peggy Hartanto frock. With a statement yellow pleated insert swishing down the side, it’s the perfect way to make an entrance at your year-end dinner party!
