Fed up of wearing black every autumn? We are too, and that’s why we’re loving the new navy and grey combinations on sale now. Fashion Editor, Lindsey Baker talks us through the trend behind the scenes of our fashion shoot.
Up at the crack of dawn, our fashion team were all set up in Studio three to photograph our winter coat collection and the new grey and navy trend – it was straight into hair and make up to make our model. Well chosen accessories are key to getting the navy and grey looks right. Statement bangles will make a simple shift dress more exciting, while a stand out necklace is the perfect finishing touch to a shirt. Shoes galore! Autumn is the perfect time to slip on a pair of shoeboots. Don’t be scared to mix in fun prints or brighter shades of blue. Our model looked fabulous in her navy trousers and white shirt. A great handbag will always be our top tip for accessorizing any daytime outfit. Shirt, £30, sizes 8-20, Principles at debenhams.com. Trousers, £38, sizes 60-22, Next.co.uk.
