Discover the trends you need to know now and the key pieces to invest in, fast.
BROWN IS THE NEW BLACK
Brown is the shade to be seen in this season. So much so, Kim Jones dedicated his last show at Louis Vuitton to the colour du jour. Beige, taupe and chocolate lend a richness to outerwear, chunky knitwear and suiting. Don’t be afraid to double up!
Forget what you know about checks. This season, it’s not about playing it safe. Bold, bright and clashing, pair plaid with heritage check, tartan with tattersall: the key is to layer. As for the colour palette? Choose from muted tones to standout shades. The more daring, the better.
Good news for those that love a logo; the nineties trend is here to stay. With influences from the likes of Liam Gallagher to the Fresh Prince, Prada plastered their imitable logo all over their collection, from ties to bucket hats. Meanwhile, the ugly trainer trend still rules, as does the tracksuit.
Whether technical, shearling or leather, if there’s one piece you need to invest in this season, it’s outerwear. Oversized padded and snug shearling jackets and long, belted coats are key for making a strong statement while staying warm. Feeling daring? The leather coat is back – just make sure you wear yours open.

Snow? Torrential rain? We’re prepared. A practical and good-looking shoe, the hiking boot is our autumn footwear of choice, with its chunky sole and striking lace-up front. Tuck your trousers in to show off the boots in all their glory.
