Autumn Colours: In a Peplum Top and Suede Skirt

For many years, I preferred to wear neutral colours such as black, grey and cream. They are solid wardrobe staples that are easy to pair together and readily available. As I have mentioned before, I recently had the pleasure of living in Mumbai for five years. Being in India definitely helped me to rediscover my love of colour and broadened my fashion horizons to try and incorporate bright colours on a daily basis.

I love the combination of pink, blue, green and other colours in this outfit. The most valuable styling lesson that I learned in India was that all colours can work together – you just have to make an effort to make them get along! So this autumn/winter, I am going  to follow the bright colour palette of Indian clothes and marry different colours and patterns together, regardless of conventional pairing norms.

I am currently having a major love affair with my blue suede boots and seem to be wearing them all the time.  Initially, I hesitated to buy these boots as I was worried that the colour may not work well with my existing wardrobe.  It turned out that they were a great buy as they forced me to think ‘out of the box’ in terms of neutrals and also seem to lend themselves to just about every outfit. So for those of you who tend to stick to neutrals – go ahead and buy a pair of coloured boots this season and you may be pleasantly surprised at how well they work with your existing clothes. I hope you enjoy this ‘lookbook’ and thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.
