But what a fabulous summer we have had… with steaming temperatures in July and the beginning of August, the UK has been a great place to be this summer. September however, is a bit of a return back to normality with the end of most summer holidays and the all too sudden arrival of the next academic year. We also see the familiar change in the fashion season too, moving from summer to autumn, we are now seeing some beautiful autumnal shades taking centre stage on our high street and social media.
Colour trends for autumn/winter 2018
Fashion see the return of cosy autumn and winter clothing and accessories. Beautiful autumnal colours this season to suit every skin shade include softer muted blues and pinks, creamy white and pale grey. Richer warmer earthy reds, russet orange, mustard and burnished brown, as well as olive and moss greens. For the more adventurous, statement colours include vibrant poppy red, fuschia and nebulous blue, these I am sure will be great on-trend favourites.
Jewellery trends for autumn/winter 2018
Jewellery trends have continued to follow much of the spring/summer direction, with layering and mix and match gold and silver still firm favourites.
The layered look can be easily created by using differing necklace lengths either worn as separate pieces or one multi-stranded piece. The multi-stranded pieces are fabulous when worn with a simple tailored shirt and great for those who think they struggle with creating a more consistent look.
Tassel, hoop and statement earrings are still a big thing this coming season but as always, mind the weight of these pieces as they can, if worn for long periods, cause damage to earlobes.
Bracelets are again, best layered wearing several different styles together or even much bolder pieces to create a wow statement look.
The latest gossip from HQ
We are delighted to announce the arrival of our B&G Autumn/Winter collection in stock from late September. We will have some super soft 100% cashmere wraps and beanies ready to wrap up warm on those chillier days and nights. As well as a new designer jewellery house on board all the way from Barcelona! We will be happily stocking some great statement, easy to wear pieces from Rosanna DLR. I simply cannot wait for their arrival so I can get busy with my camera and share with you all.
Until next time wishing you all a smooth return back to work, school, college or Uni after this year’s amazing summer break!
