Colour may have clocked out for another year, as we wave a reluctant farewell to summer, but that’s no reason to resort to a wardrobe drabber than those autumn skies ahead. Like florals, which have taken on a deeper, darker tone as a means to survive the seasonal style shift, it’s time for your going-out garms to do the same. Unlike florals, however, we’re not talking dusty pinks and brooding blacks in order for them to do so. Quite the opposite, in fact…

Shine bright like a diamond? Well, no, actually, as the fashion collective shuns the stone this season in favour of the precious metals beneath; glimmering golds, shimmering silvers and a blaze of brilliant bronze, these high-shine shades are firmly on the style agenda for AW16. And though the metallic trio aren’t strangers when it comes to the party season (or the GB Olympic team!), liquid-like textures and mirrored surfaces are providing a contemporary twist on the trend.

Spilling out over our latest range of slip dresses, bodysuits and split tops, there’s no easier way to make a fashion-forward statement this fall. Eye-catching to say the least, these foiled fabrics dance under the light and are a scroll-stopping godsend when it’s comes to Instagram. But before you get totally wrapped up in layers of lustre, there’s a fine line between sheen queen and the swan-wrapped leftovers from your local Chinese. So take note…

Like some of the more elaborate fads to filter down from the catwalks - whether its studs, patches, tassels or embroidery – moderation is key. And the same goes for the metallic movement. Bronze slip dress? Counterbalance the gleam with a pair of suede Chelsea boots and our black velvet bomber jacket. These sumptuous textures will absorb light, as opposed to reflect it, leaving your dress to stand out come Saturday night as it rightly should. Go dark on the lips and add a shimmer to the eyes for that extra attention to detail. As for our split back silver bodysuit, contrary to the standard shape of the nineties baselayer, we’ve oversized the design. Complement the silhouette with a pair of our matt black culottes, and go light on the jewellery, for a glam alternative to your LBD this month.
