Why stop at just adding some purple to your wardrobe this autumn, when health studies have shown that people who eat purple fruit and vegetables regularly experience several health benefits.
John Lewis has released a new Purple Reign Trend Report, enabling you to power up your wardrobe this autumn with this rich and healthy hue.
PRESENTED BY JOHN LEWIS
This season we have seen a rise in deep plum and aubergine tones on the catwalk, in injunction with a broader fashion trend for healthy purple food groups.
Purple is a powerful colour and not the most straightforward to wear, its best used sparingly as a rich colour accent complemented by neutral tones. Featured below from John Lewis is a purple / wine merino wool roll neck jumper, framed by an autumnal hiking style jacket. Completing the look are some neutral khaki chinos and classic tan leather derby shoes. However everyday staples like black, white, grey, beige and navy could also be combined.
The John Lewis Merino Roll Neck Jumper. Roll necks are a seasonal must have item, they frame the face exceptionally well adding both warmth and class. This wine coloured roll neck sweater could be worn underneath a blazer for a smarter winter look.
The John Lewis Bonded Cotton Eagle Anorak. The hiking trend is very much still alive this autumn. This red jacket offers some casual protection from the elements, allowing you to look the part in the field or on the street. Design details include button-up patch side pockets and contrast corduroy detailing through the interior.
The John Lewis Essential Chinos. There is nothing more indispensable in your wardrobe than a good pair of tan chinos. More preppy and and smarter in appearance than jeans, these taupe chinos feature an elegant slim fit and would look comfortable in the office or on the move.
The John Lewis Chastleton Derby Shoes. Derbys have a classic understated British profile. These fine John Lewis Made in England shoes are a timeless classic that should remain a part of any gentleman’s wardrobe for many years. Shown here in a natural tan leather these shoes feature a grippy durable sole unit which should help keep you on your feet, through the most wintry of months.
The benefits of antioxidants have long been discussed, but they are known to fight disease, keep you looking younger, reduce inflammation and are good for your heart – basically, why wouldn’t you eat them?
