You Don't Have to Wait Until September to Wear Autumn's 4 Key Colours

It might only be the first day of August and this 30-degree weather shows no sign of shifting, however, new-in sections are already being inundated with autumn pieces—and we find it always pays to be one step ahead (especially when shopping is involved). There are some colours that will inevitably dominate every single autumn, however, there are some new additions that are set to make a splash this September. Keep scrolling to see the four colours that we are most excited to wear this autumn and 12 pieces that you can wear already.

1. Khaki Green 

There is one very specific green that we keep noticing in the upcoming autumn collections—it's a mossy green meets deep khaki. Zara is already all over this trend.

2. Terra-Cotta

Autumn leaf shades always reappear every September, and this season it's all about bronze terra-cottas. This rusty brown looks really expensive, and we are most taken with & Other Stories' satin wrap maxi skirt.

3. Chestnut Brown

This autumn, get ready for every possible shade of brown—particularly, dark chocolate and chestnut shades. It might only be the first week of August, but this Zara draped dress from the new collection is set to be a cult buy.

4. Powder Blue

This one isn't traditionally an "autumnal" colour, however, bright powder blue is one of the key hues for A/W 18. Just because the skies are grey doesn't mean this needs to be the case for your wardrobe too. Ganni's sky blue mohair jumpers and cardigans are top of our new-season wishlist.
