Fall dressing doesn’t mean resigning to the darker side of the colour palette; a bright pop of colour is a welcome reminder of summer as the year draws closer to its end. However, working a casual daytime outfit around a bright statement piece can be a seemingly daunting task whatever the season.
Brighter pieces can easily transition into fall and be incorporated into casual daywear when combined with understated neutrals that don’t compete for the spotlight. Case in point, these lilac skinny jeans. When paired with a cosy sweater in neutral earth tones (black, brown, charcoal), the jeans become the focal point of the outfit without overwhelming the look. The rest of the outfit is styled down accordingly with comfortable wedges and a quirky statement bag in muted shades of cream, along with minimal accessorizing.
