Black–the universally flattering colour that everyone loves, is a total winter fashion favourite. Honestly, we’ve never met anyone who detests the colour. In fact, it’s the one colour that dominates most wardrobes and is everyone’s go-to. As much as we love black and we know it’s going to always be our fave, this winter, we decided to experiment with a broader palette of deep colours that we unknowingly avoid just ‘coz we’re so obsessed with it. Here are a few of our favourite winter essentials in deep shades…
Almost browns
 

Almost browns

One glance at this colour will make you fall in love with it. Somewhere between burnt orange slowly transcending into a deep brown, this colour never fails to make a fashion statement. The brick-like shade suits all skin tones and is a perfect choice to sport this winter. How stunning is this burnt orange-brown sweater?

Winter berries

Just when our obsession with dark, berry like burgundy lips was starting to tone down, burgundy and berry coloured sweaters and knit-wear stole our hearts. If reds are too stark for you and purples are too unconventional, this colour is perfect. The way it blends seamlessly with textured knits and wools makes the garment look even more appealing. The colour looks absolutely gorg when layered with whites, greys and even navies. So, ditch black this season and bring out the winter berry colour into your outfit.

Ochres / Mustard Yellows
 

Ochres / Mustard Yellows

Two of the most loved colours of fall, ochres and mustards are not just an ideal choice for boots, bags and other accessories but also are a great alternative when it comes to clothing. Look out for this delicious colour in the form of coats, trenches, scarves, sweaters, pants etc.

Emeralds and Military greens

These colours are chic and never go out of style. Almost all dark shades of green look flattering when worn in the form of winter clothing or even otherwise. So, opt for an oversized military green jacket to ace your winter layering game or opt for a basic deep green sweater like this one!

Ash greys
 

Ash greys

Ever known anyone who doesn’t like this colour? Neither do we. This colour is one of the most flattering shades of grey and has been a favourite shade of the year for many (remember the ash balayage rage?). Sure, it doesn’t fall in the ‘deep shades’ category, but it definitely has a strong presence and makes a statement. Ditch black and opt for this colour from the same family as your winter go to shade.

So, let blacks and fall neutrals take a back seat this winter and let this stunning palette of winter colours take over your wardrobe. These colours work brilliantly with blacks, whites and denim blues, so styling them becomes an easy-peasy affair! Which of these colours is your favourite?
