Black’s out as win­ter wardrobes come to life

Rich palette rein­vents flo­rals for the cooler months

Central Telegraph - - CLOSET - with Chan­tay Lo­gan

DE­SIGN­ERS are giv­ing drab grey and black the cold shoul­der and bring­ing win­ter wardrobes to life. David Jones am­bas­sador Jess Gomes says the au­tumn-win­ter fash­ion cli­mate’s un­char­ac­ter­is­tic show of colour ex­tends to out-of-sea­son bou­quets, with del­i­cate pas­tel blooms pop­ping on a back­drop of navy, khaki, plum or deep for­est green. “Flo­ral is re­ally big this sea­son and a lot of Aus­tralian de­sign­ers – Camilla and Marc, Lover the La­bel – are do­ing it,” Jess says. While the pretty pat­terns are most at home on floaty frocks and sheer blouses, some smart lay­er­ing will help you tackle tem­per­a­ture changes. “Bomber jack­ets are great to throw on, or you can in­vest in a re­ally good leather jacket,” Jess says. If full-on flower power isn’t your thing, pull the look back with a block colour that echoes a hue in your fea­ture flo­ral.
