At the start of any new season, our attention begins to shift towards what's new in the fashion universe, and this autumn is no exception. We've already outlined the biggest 2021 fashion trends, but perhaps the most notable trend of them all is also one of the most general: colour.
While a muted palette has dominated previous seasons, the runways this season were bold, bright, and downright beautiful, and designers made stellar use of every colour in their crayon boxes. Shades are ultra-saturated. Think highlighter yellow, grass green, inferno red, and azure blue. Juicy pink also joins this vivid line-up, yet again cementing itself as a need-to-own tone, while striking jolts of purple complete our enduring love affair with colour.
Naturally, the street-style elites have noted this development and have undergone a style metamorphosis themselves, shedding shades of beige and cream to reveal a glorious rainbow of outfits for us to enjoy. We decided to do a deeper dive into four trending colours that will be sure to have a moment this autumn, and we've included some chic, seamless ways to incorporate these colours into your looks.
Nothing has the power to elevate your outfit quite like accessories. And when it comes to colour, an accessory is the ideal way to tap into the trend and integrate it into your existing looks. And we've found a simple way to bring your autumn outfits up-to-date: a colourful watch.
If you consider yourself a luxury-accessory devotee, then you'll have already heard of Rado. Hailing from Switzerland, the watch capital of the world, Rado has become known in fashion circles for its directional designs and high-quality calibre, and now, it's just unveiled its most iconic collection yet: its unique partnership with Les Couleurs Suisse. Boasting nine chic timepieces in an exclusive edit of colours, all of which adhere to the season's style agenda, Rado's True Thinline Les Couleurs™ watches are the perfect final flourish to any outfit.
Scroll on to discover the four dominating colours that fashion people have given their seal of approval this season, each of which we've perfectly matched with their Rado counterparts.
PINK AND RED SPECTRUM
The Style Stalker
Style Notes: Pink has proven to be one of the biggest colour trends of the last five years, and it's not ready to give up its crown yet. This season, it was joined on the runway and the streets with bold shades of red. This potent pairing looks incredible on its own or offset with wardrobe staples like classic denim and white shirting.
Style Notes: For those looking to inject their wardrobes with a dose of colour, yellow is a joyful solution. From the same colour family as camel and biscuit, yellow tones will blend in more seamlessly with your existing wares than you might think. With every shade from loud marigold to mellow butter making an appearance this season, you're sure to find one that suits your taste. Street-style stars are opting for one stand-out piece, which they're pairing with other trend-led items like oversized blazers, mules and vinyl textures.
Style Notes: Most colour trends ebb and flow in popularity. But blue is a constant on the style agenda. No matter the season or mood, blue will appear in one shade or another, making it a smart sartorial investment. Right now, electric variations are all the rage. But don't disregard powdery, pastel tones, as they have everlasting appeal, too. Those in the know love wearing blue top-to-toe, though a statement accessory will be just as impactful.
Style Notes: Though this season is all about bright and bold colours, it goes without saying that neutral tones will always be a mainstay, as fashion types wear them on repeat for shows and photo ops. If you consider yourself a minimalist or simply prefer a baseline palette, you'll be pleased to see that Rado's True Thinline Les Couleurs™ Le Corbusier Collection also features an edit of stylish neutral tones, including camel, taupe, and charcoal. These are watches you can wear with absolutely any outfit.
Finding it impossible to decide which colour best suits your taste? You don't have to! Rado has a special full-collection box that includes all nine watches. Mix and match them with the rest of your colourful pieces.
