An upbeat Autumn

For a conformist, fall fashion usually circles around dark colours, minimal accessories, natural make-up and crazy layering. But in our world, including all die-hard Fashionising.com readers (yes, that’s you), fall fashion is everything that wrestles the traditions.

Elle Belgium is adhering to that unique philosophy in an editorial featuring model Amber Anderson, where layering and accessorizing co-exist. It proves that grandma knits and sparkly Miu Miu shoes can be placed on the same table. Bringing back the double handbag trend, stylist Anne Rabeux has induced a bohemian-retro feel to the shoot. Bright headscarves, floppy hats and chunky accessories have been teamed with fur jumpers and camel-hued capes, with maroon, emerald, cream and burnt orange taking precedence on the colour chart. Also a stern reminder of braving the coral lips, winged eyeliner and plum nails, as they will complete your look.

Even though the photographic concept of this shoot is quite haphazard, the optimistic take on the season of rustling leaves via accessories is commendable.
