Fall 2011 Trend: Orange

This winter forget about boring blacks and go for brights, all kinds of gem colours as well as... orange (Yes, just in time for Halloween). Think autumn leaves, warm apple cider, caramel, pumpkin soup, zesty tangerines and clementines. 

For me it all started with a fluffy orange jumper in H&M, it was a little oversized, snug and with a wide boatneck, always what I look for in a jumper. Unfortunately it was part angora so I had to let it go, wouldn't want orange fur to get all over the place in my already messy wardrobe. 

Burberry Brit Cocoon Coat in Bark Red  I saw it in the Covent Garden store and it was a perfect pumpkin shade. Lovely tailoring, double breasted with epaulettes makes it more youthful which is not always found in cocoon coats.

3.1 Phillip Lim Wrap-effect silk crepe de chine dress Bright slinky wrap dress for both day and night.

COS Boiled Wool Dress and Patterned Mohair Jumper I am quite obsessed with COS items these days, the way I see it is simplicity with a twist (most of the items at least). These two pieces add just enough vintage cool for this fall. 

Alexander Wang Red Suede Ankle Boot These highly coveted boots were sought after for quite some time, a slightly shorter alternative can be found from Kurt Geiger.

ASOS Pleat Skirt in Neoprene Full skirt made even more flouncy with the neoprene, cute length.

Mother The Looker low-rise cropped skinny jeans Neon coloured skinny jeans are here to stay.

The Kooples High Waisted Shorts with Leather Strips I have not really seriously looked into this brand until I stumbled into their store on Rue Vielle du Temple in Paris mainly because of their handsome and welcoming sales person with his very heavily accented english. In turn I found out not only did they have very cool advertising campaigns, handsome sales force and very handsome clothes. British dandyism for both ladies and gents with a french twist, très très très chic.
Can do no wrong with high waisted shorts either.

Monsoon Felt Floppy Hat I am not a big fan of hats, but there's this thing with floppy hats, one can pull down the rim and peer at the outside world like a movie star.

H&M Cashmere Jumper and Knit 

No worries going pumpkin for Halloween, it's so now.
