Autumn wardrobe: minimalism versus the knit

Have this Autumn's clothes shops made you feel as dismal as me?  So many shops are a selection of grey, black, more grey and beige (although we're supposed to say camel).

The magazines talk about "Mad Men style" but when I watch the show there is lots of colour.

But I have realised that a plain jersey dress does have one advantage - it shows off a pretty cardigan to perfection. So my winter work wardrobe is going to be plain dresses, with pretty vintage inspired hand knits and plenty of vintage beads and brooches. It may not be what the magazines point to but I like it.
