Seven A/W Trends To Look Forward To

Are you getting too comfy in your work from home joggers and loungewear? Are you missing perusing the shops for the latest looks? Our fashion stores may be closed at the moment but we can bring the latest looks to you! 


We’ve picked our favourite trends from this year’s Autumn/Winter fashion shows, so you can start planning your winter wardrobe now.

#1 Sustainability

Although sustainability should be on every brands’ radar right now, it is developing into more than just a trend. H&M first launched their ‘Conscious Collection’ in 2010 with a huge range of styles made with sustainable materials such as organic cotton and recycled polyester. Their recent collection includes classic cuts and styles, such as these ‘Mom High Ankle Jeans’.



#2 Fringe

Fringe is a style that comes and goes and we’re glad to say that it’s back for AW20! Tassels can add drama to any accessory or piece of clothing, River Island have a huge range of handbags, jackets and tops in line with this trend but our favourite is the ‘Cream suedette fringe studded jacket’ in the classic leather biker jacket style that is always a winner.


#3 Oversized Coats 

This trend is definitely something we can get behind because it means being wrapped up warm but still looking good! An oversized puffer is great for a more casual look or you can dress up this trend in this H&M ‘Oversized trench coat’. A modern take on a classic style – great for when you’re back in the office!












#4 Leather 

Have you noticed leather has been taking over the catwalks recently? Leather blazers, trench coats, skirts and more recently – dresses. A leather dress will be your new statement piece this Autumn season, we’ve found two great options from River Island for a more casual or dressed up look. The ‘Stone faux leather pinafore mini dress’ is the perfect autumn outfit paired with a long sleeve turtleneck underneath for extra warmth. If you’re looking for something less casual, the ‘Black faux leather belted bandeau dress’ is a stylish option!  

#5 Checks 

Checks are a classic pattern that you can incorporate into so many different outfits.. A checked shirt over a t-shirt with ripped jeans makes for a casual look, but we’ve found a style from H&M that we think will be perfect for your autumn wardrobe this year. A check skirt with a jumper is a classic autumnal look which is versatile and can be dressed up or down! 

#6 Colour 

Normally we associate Autumn with burnt oranges, mustard and burgundy. However, why not experiment this year with bright colours? Mandarin red, strong blue and marine green are all colours to look out for this year. We’ve got some examples below to show you how to style these differently – don’t be afraid of bright colours! You can either stand out from the crowd in the ‘Blue belted longline blazer’ suit from River Island, or take a more subtle approach with the red ‘wool-blend jumper’ from H&M.

#7 Windbreaker Layers 

If you’re not quite ready to give up the loungewear just yet, we have some good news for you! Styling a windbreaker with layers was a highlight of Versace and Louis Vuitton shows this year and will give you a great street-style edge to your look. Style with skirts or a dress for a more unique look. The options below are from Sports Direct – both under £40! Search ‘Windbreaker Jacket Ladies’.
