Fierce prints

 

Animal print is back and bolder than ever this autumn. It’s not just leopard, there are zebra and tiger markings in the mix too. The great thing is, you can go head to toe and treat yourself to an animal print coat (as seen on the catwalks at Tom Ford and Victoria Beckham) or just give your look a subtle update with a printed blouse, scarf or boots.

Leather weather

 

Leave your lightweight fabrics at the door, this is the season for something more serious: leather. Try a butter-soft leather dress, or go for a classic jacket. Don’t be afraid to go faux – some of our stores have brilliant faux leather fabrics that are actually more wearable.

Dark florals

 

Think floral prints are summery? Not any more. This autumn they’ve taken a dark turn and we love it. Everywhere you look you’ll find examples of dark-backed floral prints, which make for a sophisticated office-wear option, and will also see you well into the festive season.

Hot hats

 

You need a Baker Boy hat. You might not know it yet, but you really do. It’s the hat shape of the autumn (thanks to the likes of Dior showcasing them on their autumn winter catwalks), and they're available in lots of our stores. We love the simplicity of black, but they also look great in bright colours.

Puffer up

 

Puffer jackets have become essential outerwear for the colder seasons over the past couple of years. Like a duvet to protect you from the worst of the Scottish weather, puffer jackets are a sensible yet stylish choice that will give you a ‘90s vibe (another key AW18 trend!). We think they work well in soft shades like camel, tan and grey.

Timeless classic 

 

Autumn means cold. Cold means long sleeves and plenty of knitwear. This season knits have got interesting, with elaborate cable-work and bold patterns. We love the idea of pairing a sweater with a matching scarf for a cocoon look.

Grab your coat

 

A coat is an absolute essential of course, but which style to choose? You can’t get any more on trend than a smart funnel coat that can be dressed down for casual wear. Team with a pair of Chelsea boots, jeans and one of your statement knits for a wearable autumn look.

Check in 

 

Whether it’s tweed, Glen plaid, tartan, gingham, windowpane or anything in between, you need some checks in your wardrobe this autumn! From button-up shirts to coats or trousers, our stores have an abundance of checked clothing in glorious seasonal tones, so you're sure to find something to suit your style.
