Get the Look: your how-to guide

One season Britain
definitely does well is autumn, with bright-but-brisk mornings and golden afternoons. Take your style inspiration from the great outdoors – cover all bases with plenty of rugged, refined layers. Mix and match cord, denim, tweed and wool for effortless individuality

KEEP IT SHARP

Layering doesn’t have to mean messy; add personality with texture, pattern and colour, but keep a smart element. Opt for country blazers with worn-in jeans, or go for classic tailored trousers with check shirts and chunky knitwear

BIG KNITS

Easy, versatile and functional, knitwear is a winter wardrobe
staple – layer it in all its forms this season. Think chunky
sweaters and cardigans, patterned jumpers and long scarves
in dark blue, deep red and earthy brown

THE FAIR ISLE

This traditional knit has made a
comeback over the past few
seasons – it’s still going strong

CHECKPOINT

Don’t be afraid to
layer patterns and
colours. Tip: pick one
pattern, such as
checks, and keep it as
a thread throughout

TURNED UP

To stop a chunky cardigan taking over, wear it with a
brighter shirt and pop the collar for contrast at the neckline

GREAT LENGTHS

A longer coat works well open or closed, and can
be dressed up or down – perfect as the weather
begins to cool. Go for something classic that suits
your style and it will work for you season after season
