Building a Lovely Autumnly Spectre

Written by 

Autumnly Spectre

Transitioning from late summer to early autumn is always fun. From new colors to new silhouettes, after a long summer, autumn trends come as a breath of fresh air and are utterly exciting.

No matter what your outfit looks like, it’s the color that really brings it out. The cut and silhouette may be beautiful, but if the color isn’t great, the clothes will not stand out. Colour goes beyond the design, it can bring about involvement and inspiration. According to Daraz.pk, this season is all about unconventional colours—it makes for an artful collection of colours and combinations not bound by the usual hues for autumn. After determining the upcoming trends by observing the three R’s – runway, red carpet and real life, red has been rounded up as the colour of the season. Be it sangria, scarlet, aurora or berry red – it’s all about shades of red.


The latest collection at all the high street fashion stores comprise rich berry hues, bright purples and royal blues completed by warm mint tones – building a lovely autumnly spectre. This season isn’t about shalwars, culottes or palazzo pants – pair up your kurtas with narrow cigarette pants, preferably a little above your ankle. For footwear, a nice pair of wedges or thong flats would be great – if you are wearing thong flats, make sure your feet are nicely pedicured – nothing is more off-putting than dirty unkempt feet. The makeup you wear depends on the occasion and the time of the day.


If it’s a formal setting then you could play around with a bright pink pout, thick mascara, winged eye-liner, tinted cheeks and eye-shadow complimenting your outfit. If it is just a casual day out, minimal make up will be just fine – bright pink pout and a swipe of mascara should be your go-to makeup – MAC’s Candy Yum Yum is all the rage these days, try that out and see if it compliments your skin tone.

Start working on your fall wardrobe essentials and make a statement with immaculate sartorial choices this season.
