A soft palette of grey, white and red makes outsized checks work with any look.

As the cooler months draw in, it’s tempting to match our wardrobe choices to the grey, gloomy weather.  Black may be the obvious option, but there’s a strong case for introducing a more vibrant palette to your look. It doesn’t have to be neon yellow or fuchsia pink (although the latter is bang on trend this season), but colours and check prints can actually help lift your spirits. Who needs the winter blues?
