the colour purple...

… and teal, indigo, grape… This autumn we are to be swathed in the rich colours of royalty; have a look at these images for inspiration. I collected these whilst lamenting the loss of summer but now I don't miss it so much after seeing what the colder months have to offer!

Carolina Herrera's grape silk dress with beaded cape is the epitome of elegance

Lacoste gets teal right with lots of layers; skintight jumpsuits with knitted waistbelts, hooded tanks over mini skirts and tights; oversized draped cape-coat paired with silk tank and high waisted trousers.

Accessories go bold; perfect if most of your wardrobe is black or you just can't bring yourself to brave a full-on purple look. I love this whole outfit.

Gorgeous opera-length leather gloves from Fenwick.

Teal suede platforms with snakeskin detailing by Nicholas Kirkwood - shoes don't get any more beautiful.
