Time to put the sunglasses, parasols, summer dresses and open shoes. Put the lemon, gingham, pastels away for another 6 months. Far from being a tragedy, now we can welcome the beauty and charm of autumn. Break out the boots, coats, hats, gloves and scarves mixed with plenty of burgundies, deep red, forest green and purples. Elegance overload, in both fashion and in nature. Turning and inevitable shedding of the leaves results in warming reds, yellows, fuchsia create a cosy and comfortable atmosphere. With longer nights and the increased need for warmth, I have found autumn to be rather romantic.
