How to make this season’s earthy hues work for you.
With the weather turning warmer, we’re vibing on natural colours and fibres. So, to help you ease into this new colour palette, we’ve put together a guide that looks towards the elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire for inspiration.
It’s no secret that brown and copper tones are fast becoming the hottest colours of the season. Surprised? Nervous? Don’t be. By mixing earthy browns and greens with dazzling metallics, you can create an a stylish looks that is sophisticated and chic.
Think khaki greens, burnt oranges, dull golds and deep browns when compiling your earth-inspired outfit. Not only do these colours work individually as on-trend statements, they also mix and match well together – after all, it’s as Mother Nature intended!
Satin finishes add a lush feel to any garment, and will really elevate a natura-inspired palette, making it perfect for any party or celebration. Slip dresses and rompers are stylish after-dark staples, and can be teamed with nude or black heels and gold accessories for an unstoppable ensemble.
Thirsty for more? A water-inspired look is all about soft ocean blues mixed with foamy whites. Absolutely perfect for daytime events, this look dabbles in two-piece sets (but not just your bikini!) and soft chambray denims. Not only is this style comfortable and practical, it retains an element of sweetness too. Who ever said that blue was a boy’s colour?
Look for items with nautical stripes and frayed hems. Water flows fluidly and your outfit should look just as effortless. This aesthetic is all about barefoot walks in the grass, laughing over iced tea with girlfriends and watching the sun go down from a sandy shoreline.
White sandals, loose hair and casual vibes will complete the relaxed vibe.
Ethereal, bohemian and gorgeous. Air girls have a loveliness about them which makes them appear light-as-air and carefree. You too can look just as angelic by recreating this laid back aesthetic.
Whites are a major feature of the look here, but keep them floaty and flowing, rather than sleek or too body-contouring. Cottons and chiffons add elements of whimsy to your outfit, whilst fanciful finishes like lace trim and tie-up fastenings add a touch of fun.
The off-the-shoulder fit has come back into style in a big way, and we love the feminine and flirty vibe. Keep the silhouette loose and billowing for a look that is light and airy.
Elevate an all-white ensemble by adding in smidges of soft pinks and pastel oranges. A sunset glow takes this look to the next level, making you look positively heavenly.
Accessorise with silver accessories, and choose leather sandals or mules instead of heels for a look that is relaxed and carefree.
Turn up the heat, and get ready to party – things are bound to get hot! A firey look commands bold, dominant colours like cherry reds, bright oranges and ash blacks. Not for the faint-of-heart, these tones are made to get you noticed, and will send pulses racing.
A full-length jumpsuit with a plunging neckline in a hot colour will have you looking on-point in any situation. The aesthetic for fire is uncluttered and straight to the point, with minimal embellishments. Pair the look with pops of black and hard-edged gold. A form-fitting silhouette with unexpected angles through flared sleeves, a cinched waist or architectural structure is the key to owning this look.
