While we’re mourning the imminent end of summer, there is at least one reason to get excited about the cold: the new season trends dropping in shops everywhere.
From the chicest way to work knitwear to the modern take on a ’70s classic, here are the most wearable AW15 trends to get your head around and SL’s pick of the key pieces to snap up now...
The latest incarnation of winter is a head-to-toe affair, with a creamier colour palette, as seen at the likes of Mulberry, Celine and Gerard Darel. Keep things fresh by mixing up your materials – try pairing a cosy angora knit with chic crepe trousers – and sticking to fail-safe high-end labels for a sophisticated finish.
Old-school tweeds have had a reboot for AW15, signalling a shift towards Highlands-inspired dressing, which will see plaids and darker hues (think brown and green) taking a starring role in your wardrobe. Take inspiration from the likes of Acne, Altuzarra and Chanel by investing in classic separates with a contemporary twist, from dip-hemmed shifts to tailored trousers.
A cold weather trend which never seems to run out of steam, Military is once again on our radar for AW15. Khaki and navy separates led the troops at Phillip Lim, Michael Kors and Lanvin, so fall in line by investing in everything from gold-buttoned jackets to shoulder-detail jumpers now.
