Which colours should I be wearing this autumn?

If you haven’t switched to your autumn wardrobe yet, it’s certainly about time. With the landscape changing and fashions transforming for the season, you can ditch those brights and pastels in favour of autumnal shades. If you’re not quite sure what colours are in this autumn, don’t worry – help is at hand. In this week’s blog, we’ll be sharing all the must-wear colours for the season and sharing our top picks from Acorn Fabrics.

Six fabric shades for autumn

  1. A modern classic fabric colour

Blue is one of this year’s hottest autumn coloured fabrics. It’s ideal for formalwear and casual wear and is masculine too. One of the best things about blue is the impression it gives off. It’s cool, calming and gives off a vibe of strength and stability while oozing sophistication.

Try: Gabardine Navy Fabric or Monarch Plain Navy Solid Fabric


  1. Mr Grey fabrics

Grey has been a popular coloured fabric for the last year or two now, especially when it comes to interiors. However, in 2016 it hit the catwalks too and was crowned one of the best neutrals for autumn. Furthermore, the contemporary colour can be teamed with just about anything – from black suit trousers to white chinos.

Try: Burneside Plain Silver Solid Fabric


  1. A bold choice with red fabrics

For those of you that aren’t afraid to go bold, go red this season. A bold red or burgundy shade of fabric found in check fabrics is warm and exciting and a great choice for those with confidence. Red is best worn in creative or more dynamic environments – or to add a touch of passion on date night.

Try: Hampton 106 Red Check Fabric or Oxford Bengal Wine Striped Fabric


  1. Cool in copper fabric

Give a nod to the season with shirting fabrics in copper. Copper really stood out in this year’s catwalk shows and is one of the hottest colours right now. The rich, orangey-brown shade flatters the majority of skin tones and looks great when paired with blue or black.

  1. Stick with tradition with black fabrics

Ideal for work and play, black fabrics are easy to wear and can be easily mixed and matched with other attire. Whether you choose to go all-black or team your black shirt with a pop of colour – it’s completely up to you.

Try: Hampton Plain Black solid fabric


  1. Seasonal style
