Update your wardrobe for the new season at up to 70% on the RRP at Designer Outlet Salzburg.

Black leather coats emerge as a key item for AW19. Designers layer black leather with black toned fabrics to create powerful looks using one single colour. Accessorise with slick black sunglasses to complete the style.

It may have never truly left our radars, but black is most definitely back – and it’s largely down to designers going hell for leather. Matrix references ruled the runways of Marc Cain, Karl Lagerfeld and Michael Kors to name but a few, with an army of belted trenches, long-line coats and high-gloss outerwear declaring this is how everyone should be armouring up for the months ahead. The devil is in the absence of detail – choose tailored silhouettes and clean finishes free from zips, studs and hardware for a look that's more refined than Rebel Without A Cause. The biker jacket's minimal update teams well with a pair of expertly cut leather trousers while a sharp blazer matched with sleek Chelsea boots strikes the perfect smart/casual balance.

Styling Tips
 Invest in a key leather outerwear item
  Experiment with different textures and fabrics
Bright coloured puffer jackets are a key outerwear item for the AW19 season. Bold sportwear looks are created from clashing fluorescent tones from head to toe.

Summer may be on its way out, but that doesn’t mean you have to stow away your sunshine shades. Quite the opposite, in fact, autumn’s array of neon hues send the message loud and clear: go hi-vis or go home. Designers took a blinding approach to tracksuits, hoodies and sweatshirts alike, but the real power was in the puffer jacket. Whether lightly padded via Diesel, to-the-floor as seen at Balenciaga or sleeveless courtesy of Kenzo, every outerwear appearance indicated a primary colour just won’t cut it anymore. This trend is all about being seen, so don’t be shy and clash colours for a confident take on the trend – whether it’s a meeting of cornflower blue and chartreuse yellow or a peach-pink pairing that’s a little easier on the eyes. A polar vortex has never been so welcome.

Styling Tips
  Go bold with bright statement outerwear
 Pair clashing colour tones together
Go bold with block striped knitwear, paired with high waisted trousers to create this seasons preppy look. Knitwear is best worn tucked in for added style.

Preppy style gets a souped-up makeover this season, meaning it’s never been cooler to be square. While all-American style has been surfacing for a while now, this new take is all about the graphic touches that make it infinitely more cool kid than collegiate. A striped jumper – the bolder, the better – will get you halfway there, but the real genius of this look comes into play when teamed with a pair of high-waisted trousers, best dressed in corduroy, colour-pop or a check. While that's a look geared towards play rather than work, when it comes to Monday to Friday, make a collared shirt and schoolboy tie the non-negotiables of your new-season uniform and you're sure to score top grades all-round.

Styling Tips
  Mix and match textures with patterns
  Opt for knitwear with a bold colour pop
 Tie up high waisted trousers with a belt
