Fall Transitional: Womens
Veering away from the pastels and brights of summer, the pre-autumn trend finds us striding into a rustier color palette of burnt oranges and coppers. Staying true to the strong seventies vibe that has dominated the style stakes this season, A-line fits and suede cuts remain prevalent despite a color refresh. Now is the time to tone down festival detailing - letting the likes of fringe and distressed denim take a back seat once more - while cleaner silhouettes and simple tailoring come to the forefront.

Strolls through the park on a Sunday evening start to make a transition from BBQ laden crowds, to the serene surroundings of autumn nights slowly but surely drawing in - these outfits prove perfect when it comes to weather-appropriate dressing. The key to keeping these looks strictly transitional is to ensure that you only incorporate minute details of the 70s trend into each ensemble, and make up the rest of your look with simple statement pieces.

For the color palette, we're looking at a wash of rich, spicy tones: including tan, burgundy wine, terracotta red and burnt orange. However, given this isn't a color blocking trend, the look turns to accents of black, off-white and strong indigo hues. With regards to pattern, inspiration can be seen from the exotic souks of Morocco - bright tiles prints and intricate linework - while elements of traditional 70s paisley also come into play, especially when it comes to blouses and cut-out shoulder smock dresses. Despite many pieces within the collection looking minimalist and clean-cut, texture and print can still be achieved through layering with tribal printed capes and subtly fringed kimonos.

This modern update will put a laid-back twist on the look, making it perfect for those days where you anticipate long walks exploring the city, or strolling around your closest park.
