AW21 Trend #5: Mother Earth
Once again, the celebration of all things natural and timeless (see Trend #4) is being championed by many of the world’s leading fashion houses, including Hermés, Chloe and Dior. If, however, your style (and budget) is more everyday than runway, you’re in luck, because Cairns Central has the best of Autumn Winter style from brands you know and love, all under one roof.
Earthy tones remind us of the environment, and many echo the beautiful, rustic hues emerging as leaves begin to fall from trees, and the days get shorter. There’s a certain timelessness about colours that are part of the natural cycle of life, and wrapping ourselves in the palette of mother earth can be an elegant nod to a more sustainable future.
Where to begin? Ghanda Clothing, Country Road, and Myer all have beautiful new season collections showcasing earthy greens, rust, mustard, camel, rich browns and even deep reds. Add statement pieces top your everyday basics, and the combinations are endless. Long, heavy-cotton khaki skirt under a black knit or jacket? Yes please. Sleek, ribbed, turtle-neck knit in tan or caramel over a white, collared shirt paired with your favourite blue denim jeans? Trés cool. Super-comfy, maxi-length dress in burgundy or burnt orange worn with short boots or classic flats? Bring. It. On.
They wonder of nature-inspired colours is that they open the door to being bolder with fashion choices. This season is the perfect opportunity to stretch your comfort zone with a suite of new styles born from the work-from-home lifestyle that are comfortable, stylish and designed to suit bodies of all shapes and sizes.
