Everything’s coming up roses

By Nicola St John

From a soft blush to a bold plum, this autumn, its time to dress like you’ve just gone for a stroll through grandma’s garden.
Myers’ autumn/winter fashion launch featured soft pink dresses with nude toned trench coats – bringing the colours of summers into cooler days. Tome featured rosy pastel shades mixed with neutrals, while Bul showed cropped sweaters with slim pants in varying shades of cosy creams.

It’s all looks very lovely, like the world through a pair of rose coloured glasses. If you’re feeling rather feminine, a peach cardigan paired with a straight skirt will make you look sweeter than sugar.

It’s best not to attempt the all-over pink look – that’s best left to Molly Ringwald from “Pretty in Pink”. “Hot pink” is also anything but hot. Bin the vintage finds and pair natural shades with a hit of blush with dusty pinks and rusty reds.

If you’re more into stealing roses from your neighbours, perhaps you’re more suited to a rich red, raspberry or plum. Bomber jackets, big sweaters and slim leather skirts may be more to your liking.

Whatever your taste, a spoonful of sweet pink into your wardrobe makes the start of autumn seem a little bit more bearable.
