Ah, autumn. The death of summer, grey skies instead of blue, crunchy brown leaves coat the grass, wan complexions reflect colourless clothing. My favourite trend. Monochrome is never off-trend, but is particularly hot in the colder months, when any colour of the rainbow is a bit "too summery". Only occasional pops of some red lipstick here, some navy or dark green there, but absolutely NO hues to invoke cheer.
