Trending colours

Inspired by earthy tones and nature, here are the 5 top shades for 2015 that make up this season's colour wheel across men and women's fashion.


Cadmium Orange: Inspired by the 60’s and 70’s, this warm and welcoming hue evokes optimism, playfulness and sophistication. It’s perfect on its own or as a bold contrasting colour in accessories.

Stormy Weather: This beautiful blue-grey hue is the perfect base colour for any outfit. It pairs perfectly with black, white and dried herb green as accents.

Dried Herb: While this hue was once perceived only suitable for army and safari prints, this beautiful shade of olive green is now a popular colour for almost any garment.

Reflecting Pond: This almost navy blue tone pairs beautifully with crisp white pieces and black leather accessories like boots and tees.

Colour of the year: Marsala: This rich and sophisticated red-brown shade captures the richness of the earth in one bold hue. Use it for a pop of colour in scarves or handbags to add a touch of luxury to your look.

To help you stay chic and trendy, check out top picks of the season’s must-have styles that’s shaped this season’s fashion landscape.


70’s styling
Get ready to experience a flash back to the 70’s with this year’s A/W fashion scene finding inspiration from the boho -disco decade. Flattering high-waisted flares were all the rage at top runway shows this season, as well as long floaty dresses, cork-soled wedges and fringed hemming.

For a chic retro look this winter, try pairing light grey flared pants with a creamy button-down blouse, heels and an open nude tone jacket. Or perhaps on a day with a little less chill factor, try a chiffon floaty dress with knee high boots and oversized sunnies.

Animal prints
Another great trend that’s back this season is animal prints, with leopard prints fused into fashion a little more than others. Many luxe sports labels like Adidas and Nike have incorporated these prints into their clothing, projecting a fun and playful look.

For a similar look why not try a leopard print jumper with a chunky knitted scarf, tights, and casual shoes. Alternatively for a more chic weekend look, try pairing a dried herb green snake skin skirt with black ankle boots and a tan turtleneck.

Furry outer wear
Fur was back on the run way this season, featuring on all sorts of warm garments. Although our Australian winters aren’t as bitter compared to other countries, it’s usually those early morning and late night commutes that get to us the most.

For a stylish layered up look try stormy weather grey jeans with a white skivvy, ankle boots and a tan faux fur vest. For a night out in town, what about wearing your little black dress with a faux fur coat? 

Menswear
For the men this season, it’s really about wearing any colour – as long as it’s grey. Sounds boring? Well, it’s all about playing with shades and making outfits pop with contrast. Try wearing dark grey business pants with a white button down shirt, a lighter grey vest and a (you guessed it) grey overcoat of the darker shade.
For an outfit with a bit more colour, why not try a marsala red overcoat with grey business pants and a white shirt.
Or for a more casual look, pair a reflecting pond blue cardigan with a basic white tee and grey jeans.
