There’s something so incongruous about writing about autumn/winter fashion trends when the temperature gauge is hitting 20º outside. But such is the nature of the fashion world: We’re always one step ahead of the game. However, now that autumn officially begins in a couple of weeks time, there’s a part of me that is enjoying the prospect of cooler climes and the cosy layers and fabulous coats that come with it. I’ve always been a cold-weather dresser at heart. So allow me to be your shopping guide through the sartorial maze that is the autumn trend lineup.
As always, I’ve shopped out each look with designer, high-street and vintage options, and so if you’re a pre-loved novice, maybe take the upcoming season as a chance to dabble in second-hand. I’ve done all the work for you. My selected trends hail from the autumn 2021 runways, but I believe they are all styles that will come back around and feel fresh year after year. We’ve got saturated colourways, which will bring pizzazz to your neutral separates; XXL denim for an injection of ’90s cool; and a few cold-weather classics such as knitted co-ords and elevated suits.
You may also have one of the below trends already sitting in your wardrobe, and the secret is finding small ways to give old pieces a new lease on life, which is why I’ve included a few Instagram outfit shots to get your creative juices flowing. All set? Scroll down to see and shop the autumn pieces you can buy now, whatever your budget.
