October. Up there with May (the birthday month), it has to be my favourite month of the year, in my favourite season of the year: Autumn. The season of light layers, playful textures and the first time since summer that you get to wear your favourite chunky knits but still get away with a bare leg.
Colours this season are making an impact (as are florals, chenille, statement suits and sleek silks). On par with statement red (seen everywhere from ankle boots, to statement blazers, coats and head-to-toe power suits), emerald – and green generally, in its various hues of olive, mint, jade, teal – is one of those impact colours. I paired this statement trench with a simple black bodysuit (to help block out that fresh autumn chill), a vegan suede mini, and my favourite suede booties.
Mixing textures, and pairing statement colours like this eye-popping green with neutrals, tones the colour down for an everyday touch but still catches your eye (like it did with me, when i fell in love with it in store!).
Practical tip: as a Vancouverite, we all know that “40% chance of rain” actually means 100% – the downpour I got caught in about 2 minutes after these were shot is proof, and has me thinking twice about risking my suede boots!
