IN&OUTTONIGHT 28 Monday, 5 October 2009 London Lite Beboldandbanishtheblack Y es, we know the nights are drawing in and winters icy grip is a mere few weeks away, but the imminent onset of sAD is no excuse to slack on the sartorial front. Winter months dont have to be dull, drab and dreary, so instead of gravitating towards a depressing seasonal palette of grey, black and brown, make the most of the crisp, bright autumnal mornings we are enjoying at the moment with a jolt of bold colour. From fuchsia pink, which was a big hit on the catwalks at Dior, Dolce & Gabanna and Versace, to hot scarlet as spotted at DKNY, and eighties-inspired cobalt blue at Balmain, rainbow brights not only serve the basic purpose of jollying up a boring outfit, theyre also pretty good at cheering us up, too. Happily, the high street is awash with colour, so whether you opt for a statement winter coat (a good choice, as you know you will be getting a lot of wear out of it), jewel-tone dresses or just want to add colour into your accessories -- a colourful handbag or shoes can make your look come to life -- theres plenty to choose from. Coats are a great place to start, as our wardrobe centres on them at this time of year. shades of red, green and purple are classics -- they never date and tend to work with most other colours. Brighter, acid shades like yellow, orange and pink are more quirky and exper- imental. Cant make up your mind which hue you like best? Then try a few, with affordable coats like the fuchsia tie-neck version at Matalan (35), tangerine double-breasted at A/Wear (60) and yellow tiered at Dorothy Perkins (75). Knockout frocks will also pep up your wardrobe, and swerving the standard black and grey will earn you style stripes in the office. smart shift dresses in bold red, purple and pinks look hot, while party dresses in luxe silks will shimmer in yellow, turquoise and emerald. Our fave red frocks are by Vivienne Westwood, whose flattering jersey styles are anything but plain. My-wardrobe. com has the best selection, from 165. And for a slice of designer glamour on the high street race to Whistles, where its Roksanda Ilincic collection is almost sold out. by rebecca boyce THISWEEK lite loves Funny bunny: Jeff Koons with his Rabbit, on show at Tate Modern HersHis Make-up Magic ITs not often that we get so carried away by a beauty product that we feel the need to shout about it in this column, but Urban Decays new smoke Out Kit is the niftiest bit of kit weve seen in yonks.
