Berry colours are everywhere this autumn. The rich hues are perfect for pairing with dark jeans or for an evening out. We’ve plucked only the ripest colours from this seasons bountiful crop of plum, raspberry, blackcurrant, and damson shades. Dig in!

Pleated Peplum

Major trend for this season; the peplum sits well over pencil skirts, skinny trousers and tailored shorts. A great way of taking a simple vest and giving it a smart and sophisticated twist. This bright red shows of the pleated detail beautifully.

This beautiful scarlet blazer is made of a soft cord fabric, so it has a little drape. This piece is very bold, keep the outfit underneath dark and add some super shiny gold jewellery to set it off.

Dress

This velvet fish-tailed dress looks almost good enough to eat with the shimmer of the fabric showing off the colour amazingly. While the high neckline is demure, the clingy shape and quirky tail make this dress sophisticated and sultry. Add a geometric necklace or earrings for contrast to its flowly shape.

Satchel

This Black-cherry hued satchel is a good choice if you don’t want to wear berry shades. A preppy choice, but this colour is a bit more modern and classy than its tan-coloured cousins. This will go with most looks this season, so it makes a good investment piece.

About Alex Bucktin

I'm a graphic designer for a London ad agency but being creative isn't just a 9-5 thing for me. Its part of everyday life. I have an unhealthy obsession with typography, I ski like I have a death wish and my ideal afternoon would be spent walking the dogs and baking french macaroons. I collect china tea cups and shoes, and have no idea what I want to be when I finally grow up.
