Menswear

1 – RED If there’s one hue that screams AW17 it’s red. Autumn’s hottest colour gets a boost this season. Opt for a fiery piece, like this River Island jacket, for a confident, modern look.

 

2 –TEXTURE As the weather starts to get cooler, investing in outerwear is a must. We love this faux fur multi-coloured jacket from Primark which is sure to make a statement.

 

3 – SHEER Sheer fabrics are a favourite as you can layer without looking too bulky. Pair this New Look maxi dress with a long sleeved t-shirt dress and you’re good to go.

 

4 – BLOCK HEEL This new boot trend looks good with everything from smart straight-leg trousers and shift dresses to casual jeans.

 

5 – BOLD ACCESORIES The best way to accessorize this season is by pairing practicality with style. Opt for this backpack from Whistles, with its bang on trend leopard print design.

1 – SHARP SUITING Get yourself some decent tailoring. Play with texture and fabric to keep your suitgame fresh. This chequered number from River Island will make for an effortlessly cool, modern look.

 

2 – COOL KNITS Autumn wouldn’t be the same without a staple knit. This finely knitted colour block sweater from John Lewis is slim-fitted but will still keep you warm during the colder months.

 

3 – LOOSE FIT TROUSERS Wider leg trousers have been coming back in over the past few seasons. Pair these Ted Baker at John Lewis loose fit chinos with a slouchy unstructured knit to round off the look.

 

4 – QUILTING The practical outerwear, like this puffer from Primark, offers a contemporary silhouette that is as comfortable as it is stylish.

 

5 – CHELSEA BOOT A pair of boots is an autumn wardrobe essential. This brown suede pair from John Lewis are a good bet. Team with straight legged denim jeans for a stylish look.
