AW22 Trend Guide

From timeless checks to futuristic puffer jackets, elevate your wardrobe with our curated guide to the season’s key trends.

Head-to-toe black has always been one of the fashion pack’s go-to looks and this season is no different. On the formal front, tailored wool trousers by Pal Zileri and Boggi Milano are a great way to kick off the look, but if you really want to invest in this timeless trend then opt for smart leather styles by the likes of Paul Taylor and Calvin Klein Jeans, or a black blazer with leather lapels for textural panache. A band collar shirt by Tommy Hilfiger or a rollneck sweater by Antony Morato make for great pieces you can also wear casually with a long black coat or a biker jacket. Add a sprinkling of silver jewellery for a gothic contrast and use sneakers or military boots to keep the look contemporary

Men’s tailoring has never been in a better place, and for autumn designers went all-in on classic checks in soft neutral tones. Dunhill, Fendi and Off-White led the sartorial way with heritage checks in casually tailored silhouettes. Trend hounds will want check suits by Hugo Boss and Bottega del Sarto in muted tones paired with Chelsea boots or chunky brogues, but you can dip your toe in with a check wool coat by Etro or even just a plaid scarf. Checks work casually, too, especially when they’re bolder
colours: standout check sweaters by David Naman and Eredi Pisanò or vibrant check trousers by Corneliani make a strong statement, especially when contrasted with relaxed-fit streetwear shapes and your favourite sneakers. 

Praise the fashion lords - baggy jeans are back! From Heron Preston to Louis Vuitton, loose-fitting jeans are very much on the autumn/winter menu so dine out on them at McArthurGlen. Low-waisted styles by the likes of Diesel, Levi's and Liu Jo Uomo come with a healthy dose of laidback 90s nostalgia. Look for distressed elements in a multitude of washes. The look is uber casual, which makes hoodies by Dsquared2 and Iceberg a no brainer, or you can double down on denim with a vintage trucker jacket layered over a loose-fit tee. Keep your accessorises on a streetwear tip, with belt bags by The Bridge and Pquadro, high tops by Converse and Corso Roma and finished off with a studded belt and baseball cap. 

Puffer jackets have been big (literally) for a few seasons now and that trend took another step forward with oversized futuristic styles in a host of vibrant colours. They’re a great investment too as you can layer them over virtually any style of outfit. Oversized short puffer jackets by Columbia and Colmar are perfect for both smart and casual looks, whereas long-line styles by K-Way and Roy Roger's are real statement-makers. Look for details such as funnel necks, big hoods, or interesting quilt patterns and belted details. Use the jacket colour to create a tonal look - pair a beige puffer with neutral check trousers for example. Puffer bags are a cool way to finish off the look, too, along with tonal gloves and chunky Derby shoes.
