It's Only Neutral
Posted on 1 May by Cairns Central
Is your wardrobe down to earth? From boots to blazers, easy-to-coordinate pieces in refined natural hues have to be one of our favourite trends of the season!
Your winter wardrobe build should always start with a back-to-basics approach, making it easy to add seasonal on-trend pieces, and these neutral garments and accessories are the ideal place to begin.
Paradoxically described as a timeless trend, each season puts a new spin on the term neutral. This year’s most cohesive autumn winter look gives a nod to warm caramel and terracotta tones, deep charcoal threads and concrete greys – and it’s anything but monotonous.
We all want to keep our fingers on the figurative fashion pulse and while doing so means acknowledging the seasonal trends as they arrive, it’s also important to consider your day-to-day life when curating the perfect closet. Unless you travel to colder climates frequently there’s little point in introducing a thick woollen trench into your wardrobe if you live in the Queensland tropics.
Instead, opt for cardigans, jackets and coats in a lightweight fabric that will cover your shoulders and keep you cosy during the cooler months, but won’t stifle you. Long-sleeve, cotton blend garments are easy to style and oh-so-chic! Take yours in a natural caramel hue and pair it with a staple leather boot for an evening outfit you’ll want to live in.
In the same thread, striking statement jewellery is also taking a moment to shine this autumn winter and is a trend that can easily take a neutral outfit to another level of elegance and sophistication. Warm up your outfit by choosing two or three pieces in molten gold or with oceanic-inspired pearl accents, as an ironic accolade to the trends of the chilly season.
Off the runway and into the office, refined blazers and tailored suit pants in earthy tones are a relaxed take on the monochromatic, gender-neutral corporate wear look, softening the edges just a little for the autumn winter season.
Like warm caramel trickling into the display windows of Cairns Central, this is the one down-to-earth trend that you should begin your winter wardrobe build with. Refined, indulgent and oh-so-easy to wear!
