Stylist Notes: A Lesson in Colour

Every good stylist knows that colour is just as important as fit, cut and fabric to the overall success of a look. Every season whole trends are based on single colours and, simple as it may sound, your choice of colour can change the entire feel of your outfit and even the way it makes you feel whilst you are wearing it. Here Yuliya takes on the two most commonly worn colours, black and cream, in the same coat to show you how important colour is and how to make the most of it this season.

 Everyone owns a black coat at some point in their life; many even buy a new one each year so it is key to find new ways to style yours each season to stop you blending in to the crowd. Yulia hits many of autumn’s big trends with this simple yet effective rock chick look, most obviously monochrome, which is huge right now and is the easiest way to keep your trusty black coat right up to date. She has also added a quirky edge to her look by rolling up her leather leggings and pairing them with these gorgeous buckled boots. This is a brilliant way to revamp a much loved piece and looks great against the texture of the heavy knitted coat.

 As you can see, although this is exactly the same coat, the change of colour from black to cream takes the look from rocky to ladylike in one easy step. Cream is very on trend this season and the best way to wear it is to keep it ultra classic. Floaty blouses, pencil skirts and timeless pumps in neutral shades feel right for now – just add a pair of sunglasses for Hollywood appeal a la Grace Kelly.
