The Look: Rust and Rubble

There is something so earthy and warm about wearing terracotta shades and judging by the lashings of rust at Australian Fashion Week, this colour is going right to the top of the trend stakes.

Hello June! It may sound strange, but 'Winter' has arrived in tropical Australia.  Ok, so my climate is not exactly a full-thruttle 'Game Of Thrones' style 'winter is coming', hide in fear kinda thing. To be honest, in my opinion, it's still summer. 

The 'Winter' months give me the perfect excuse to buy clothes in new, and more neutral, tones. (But, hey, as if I need an excuse). This Boohoo off-the-shoulder number ticks all the boxes for me. I've been lusting (like a crazy school girl) over this terracotta shade ever since it featured heavily in several designers collections at Australian Fashion Week. And now I finally have this luxe on a budget piece hanging in my super-duper-crammed wardrobe.

What's your new 'it' colour?

Rachel

P.S. Ohmygosh how often do I talk about the weather? How stereotypically British of me.

  1. I love the off the shoulder trend and I really like the color of that dress! It's not a color you see often which makes it even better!

  10. I spent last winter in Sydney - which wasn't too bad, I could go out in a mini-skirt and still live but I'm spending this winter in NZ and it's a whole 'nother story... it's bloody freezing! I love this burnt orangey rust colour! Xx

  35. You've hit the nail on the head Rachel, terracotta shades are definitely 'earthy and warm' - they never fail to make me feel as though we're in the height of summer, regardless of the month! :) You look really lovely in this dress and I love that even though winter is approaching over there, you're still able to wear a dress that you could only wear a couple of weeks of the year in the UK! haha :)

  39. I've always wondered what "winter" is like in Australia... being from Southern California, I feel like we somewhat have similar climates hehe ;) I'm loving the off-the-shoulder dress; the terra cotta color looks gorgeous on you!
