As the latest A/W 21 trends start to appear in all our stores we’re dreaming of layering up in the cosiest knits and choosing our next wear-with-everything coat.
This season we’re preparing for all types of weather with warm quilted pieces and oversized raincoats to beat any sudden showers. Plus, we’ll be hanging on to those last days of summer with gorgeous muted florals and light breezy fabrics.
Check out the top trends for autumn and start planning your new season wardrobe:
1. Cool quilting
We started spotting it on the runways last year, but the fashion world is still obsessed with this streetwear trend. From padded jackets to puffy accessories, quilting is absolutely everywhere. Get the look everyday with a cosy coat, like this one from Mango – finally, a trend that is both stylish and practical!
2. Simply co-ordinated
Want to look smart and stylish at the office this season? Embrace a matchy-matchy style with colourblocked co-ords and simple cleans lines. We love the warm chestnut brown combination of this knitted jacket and satchel bag from Hobbs.
3. Mismatching jewellery
Although your clothes may be coordinated, you can add some irregularity with mismatching earrings. Opt for a sculptural colour clash from Oliver Bonas, or how about some warm rose gold hoops from Pandora? Simply choose your favourite charms and thread them on to create a one-of-kind pair.
4. Soft florals
Florals? For Autumn? Groundbreaking! Perfect if you’re not quite ready to let go of summer, this look takes your typically warm weather prints and pares them back with mellow pastel tones. Take summery light fabrics and add chunky boots and leather accessories to toughen them up for autumn.
5. Stylish sweater vests
Yes, you read that right. This season we will all be channeling our inner Chandler Bing and reaching for our new knitwear staple – the sweater vest. Pop it on over a shirt to warm up your A/W look or go all out with a statement mini dress like this one from H&M.
6. Oversized outerwear
This season, bigger really is better – especially when it comes to outerwear. Think ankle-length trenches and cloak-like rain macs. Head to COS for the perfect olive-coloured coat – guaranteed to go with everything.
