Muted & Layering


Slowly, slowly the temperature is creeping down – although this autumn has been unseasonally warm so far – but finally the need for layering up is upon us. The trick is to make your colour palette work hard for you…

Either go for some well thought-out colour blocking or mix muted colours around a key piece like this biker, which I’m a bit (ok, very!) attached to right now; one of those lucky finds that fits super well and looks so cute on top of a woolly jumper…. I love how the washed out blue denim feeds into the lighter chambray blue, both of which support the oatmeal of the rollneck knit and beige booties perfectly… I’m giving a lot more thought to creating consistent colour palettes at the moment, convinced it’s the key to looking well put together!

The rollneck knit is by Scottish heritage brand Peter Scott; based in the Scottish borders, founded in the 1870s, entrepreneur and philanthropist Peter Scott created and patented unshrinkable knitwear, to this day still hand-crafted in the Hawick factory. Check out the AW14 collection for classic quality pieces in colours that take direct influence from the beautifully muted but lush colouring of the Scottish landscape…
