Earth tones, neutrals, conscious pieces for the season

October 1, 2021

Despite being in a tropical country, autumn is my favorite time of the year from a fashion perspective.

This time of the year’s color palette gives a girl many options and I can get away with the bulges because of its general silhouette.

Regardless if one’s country has two or four seasons, fashion always delivers and seasonal collections always have something to offer for everyone.

H&M recently released its Autumn/Winter 2021 collection and the looks are all promising for the upcoming cold weather in the country.

It combines gorpcore and sartorial pieces, versatile looks in earth tones and classic neutrals perfect for those whose styles vary each day.

“Gorpcore” is a term in fashion coined by writer Jason Chen that means “Good Ol’ Raisins and Peanuts.” Gorpcore refers to clothing pieces made for outdoor activities like camping, hiking, etc.

Other than the collection’s earthy color palette, H&M made sure to be conscious towards its color inspiration.

Majority of the pieces from the Autumn/Winter collection are made of sustainably sourced materials like Ecovero or fibers from sustainable wood and pulp.

The collection is also marketed as outdoor gear but, according to Maria Ostblom, head of design for womenswear at H&M, they “wanted to bring the practical elements of outdoor gear to our trend-focused customers.”

H&M’s Autumn/Winter 2021 collection will be available in stores starting 7 October.
