I've just seen mustard and rust all over the shops. Please tell me they arent THE colours...

for this Autumn.

yes, and orange. Blurgh.

i don't mind rusty colours but prefer deeper mulberry which is also everywhere, much more flattering

EustaciaVye Wed 31-Aug-11 11:00:24

Does mustard suit anyone who doesnt have luscious chocolate brown skin (not me)?

scurryfunge Wed 31-Aug-11 11:00:58

It is all very Angela Rippon.

EustaciaVye Wed 31-Aug-11 11:01:10

I suit bright reds, greens and blues. How am I going to make my wardrobe look remotely fashionable?

I love rust and deep ruby reds, so I'm loving the autumn colours. Not so keen on mustard though.

So...Star Trek uniforms for the Xmas party this year then?

luxuryhamper Wed 31-Aug-11 11:04:45

bright colours are also everywhere though aren;t they, especially jeans

EustaciaVye Wed 31-Aug-11 11:07:18

I've been away a few weeks and not near any shops. having just been into town all I could see was a sea of rust and mustard.

I can do ruby red, but not mulberry as it doesnt suit me.

EustaciaVye Wed 31-Aug-11 11:08:17

Having had my colours done in the past, it is a CURSE, I tell you....No more can I wear something ghastly in blissful ignorance. It has made me halve me annual shopping budget hmm

warmandwooly Wed 31-Aug-11 12:15:30

I will be doing orange in the form of a bag but as for mustard...yuk!

Zwitterion Wed 31-Aug-11 12:20:48

I love mustard and orange, really suits me so I'm liking all this!

EustaciaVye Wed 31-Aug-11 12:39:52

I can do brown and teal. That will have to be my limit though.

ellangirl Wed 31-Aug-11 12:59:20

Awful colours for me, I agree with eustacia!

Verso Wed 31-Aug-11 13:16:18

I love mustard (ochre?!), rust and orange so am really pleased at all the choice in the shops (although I'm on a spending diet right now so need to window shop only for a bit!)

SinicalSal Wed 31-Aug-11 13:18:48

what about deep peaches and corals? I got a dark coral jacket which I think suits me.

member Wed 31-Aug-11 13:24:06

This was exactly the reaction I had; it's not a nice orangey rust either, it's sludgy & on peg-leg chinos. Not wild on the crepe soles either.

PaigeTurner Wed 31-Aug-11 19:09:35

Lots of 'American Tan' stuff too, if you want to dress up as a big, sloppy shit.

vesela Wed 31-Aug-11 19:20:01

I love the orange and pink they have together in H&M. Seriously, it looks excellent the way they've put it together.

MonkeyJungleConga Wed 31-Aug-11 19:20:54

Hate them both but they look great on me. hmm

iklboo Wed 31-Aug-11 19:27:12

If I wear orange I look like the forgotten Xmas satsuma. You know, the one you find about May......

AutumnWitch Wed 31-Aug-11 21:34:40

I'd never normally touch mustard in a million years, but this picture from the jigsaw site (second image in) convinced me to try it. I bagged a cheap long sleeve top from new look which seems to work under more sane colours.

Still avoiding rust though...

MissVerinder Wed 31-Aug-11 21:59:39

I can do rust, but mustard+oliveskin=worried mother!

"Are you alright? You look dreadful!"

kickassangel Thu 01-Sep-11 03:27:52

but if the 'in' colours don't suit you, aren't you just supposed to do touches/accessories?

summer colours aren't good on me, so I get a bright (idh) summery bag & nail varnish, maybe a bit of cheap jewellery, then use more neutral colors with it. also much cheaper
