Translate the catwalk’s most-wanted looks to your everyday wardrobe. From wear-anywhere leather to statement coats and boho dresses, your wish list starts here
From fringed mini dresses to oversized biker jackets and waist-cinching corsets, leather is everywhere. Initially intimidating – we’ve never thought of Neo from The Matrix as a style icon – leather is a surprisingly wearable addition to your autumn wardrobe. Dip a toe into the trend with leather trousers, which are a dressier alternative to denim and work well for an evening out. Try a faux-leather overshirt to add edge to floaty midi dresses or tuck a light jumper into a leather mini skirt for a playful look. And, of course, leather outerwear is classic. Our faux-leather biker jackets are a wardrobe staple at a great price point. Feeling more adventurous? Button up in our showstopping longline jacket from Autograph.
Designers smartened up this autumn, but there’s nothing corporate about this season’s suiting. Velvet, eye-popping colours and plenty of embellishment... this was tailoring with a twist. Get the party started with a sparkling sequinned blazer. Pair with the matching trousers for a high-impact look that’s perfect for parties, or style with jeans and a vest for a more subtle way to wear it. A velvet blazer is an easy entry point into the tailoring trend: wear with wide-leg trousers for a put-together look that nods to this season’s oversized silhouettes.
Mood-boosting hues – bright pink, zingy green and burnt orange – were huge this summer. Wearing the rainbow continues to be a key trend this season – and what better way to boost your spirits on a grey morning? A bright coat is an easy way to work some colour into your winter wardrobe. We’re coveting this purple coat from Autograph, which is made from wool and cashmere for extra warmth. Wear similar hues underneath for a tonal look that’s effortlessly polished. Sumptuous jewel tones are perfect for the chillier months: this cashmere jumper comes in scarlet, burgundy and emerald. If you’ll wear any colour as long as it’s black, try adding some vibrant accessories. These smart lilac loafers will stay looking new for longer thanks to a stain-resistant coating
Boho is back with a bang. We spotted plenty of 1970s-inspired flowing dresses, textured coats, and western-style cowboy boots on this season’s runways – think Stevie Nicks and Janis Joplin. A floral print and romantic shape give this midi dress a globe-trotting feel. Try cinching in the waist with a black belt for extra detail. Take your outfit up a notch by adding western knee-high boots, which feature all-over embroidery for a vintage look. Don’t worry about sore feet – our clever Insolia technology makes walking in heels more comfortable by reducing pressure on your feet.
Secretly excited for cold weather dressing? Us, too. Wrap up warm in this season’s statement coats – print and oversized silhouettes are key outerwear trends for 2022. Go bold in a leopard-print shacket, which works worn over pretty much any outfit. Look for eye-catching details that mean you can’t wait to put your coat on every day: bright colours, shawl collars and striking checks. You’ll be sad when spring rolls back around and it’s time to retire your coat – almost.
