    With its relatively muted aesthetic, this neutral palette works well not only for Fall season, but all year round.

    As the temperature drops during this season, orange has been seen in abundance on the Fall runways.

    With head-to-toe tonal style made of lighter colours like orange and yellow, your whole ensemble will surely scream Autumn vibes.

    Pair a muted coloured blazer with a khaki pair of trousers and a classic, crisp white dress shirt.

    Complete this look with accessories like a burnt orange bow tie and a gold pair of cufflinks for a more formal look.

  3. Lilac, Burgundy and Hot Pink


    How about a combination of a pastel, a rich jewel tone and a trendy autumnal pop of colour? You bet!

    Be creative with vibrant and h4 hues like lilac and hot pink that are much loved by millennials.When paired with subdued neutrals, it is a surprisingly flattering colour palette on every skin tone.

    While a “full-bodied” colour like burgundy will be ideal to enhance materials like silk, suede and satin for either your pocket square or tie to round up the whole look.

  4. Emerald Green, Ivory, and Marigold

    The regal and timeless combination of greens and gold have already been making their mark this spring and summer, but expect to see these colours blow up by the time fall rolls around.

    Then complete the ensemble with emerald green skinny tie and a gold pocket square for a perfect late summer/early autumn look.
