AW22 Trend Guide

Big shapes, preppy vibes and timeless nostalgia define the must-have trends from this season’s hottest runways and luxury brands.

Ted Baker | RRP £195, Our Outlet Price £125

OSPREY LONDON | RRP £85, Our Outlet Price £45

That sound? Oh, that’s the roar of the jungle as designers far and wide embrace the call of the wild with bold leopard and tiger prints. On the dressy side, purr in leopard print one-shoulder dresses by Ted Baker, feline maxi-skirts by M&S, and form-fitting mini-dresses by Calvin Klein, complemented with strappy heels and silver jewellery. Make a big statement with head-to-toe matching prints (cat suit anyone?!) or use colour accents to break up the look. 

The way that brands such as Versace, Kenzo and Chanel are using checks this season has got us very excited for the heritage pattern. From grungy tartans to sophisticated tweeds, there’s nothing plain about plaid. When it comes to shopping sustainably, timeless check tailoring is one of the best investments you can make. For day, keep the palette toned down and classic with blazers by Joules and Tommy Hilfiger and pair them with a loose-fitting check shirt by Jack Wills, or a vintage dress that you can style with white sneakers and a cute bag by OSPREY LONDON. By night, let the wilder check tones loose. A bold houndstooth mini-dress paired with bright coloured heels is sure to be a show-stopper. 

M&S | RRP £24.50, Our Outlet Price £19.50

Levi's | RRP £70, Our Outlet Price £49

The Canadian tuxedo, aka head-to-toe denim was once a fashion faux pas but now it’s one of the strongest looks of the season. A casual trucker jacket and jeans is tough to beat, especially when you throw in some distressed details to give it a grungy edge. Great denim is hard to kill, so think about finding vintage pieces to mix with more contemporary styles. A denim shirt by M&S or Levi's looks super cool styled with a denim midi skirt by the likes of Next, and a pair of denim heels. If you just want to dip your toe into the trend, then a midi-dress with chunky shoes and a neutral tone bag will still bring out the best in blue.
