AW22 Trend Guide

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


Reiss | RRP £450 | Our Price £170

Paul Smith | RRP £375 | Our Price £160

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 Reiss and Ted Baker in muted tones paired with Chelsea boots or chunky brogues, but you can dip your toe in with a check wool coat by Paul Smith or even just a plaid scarf. Checks work casually, too, especially when they’re bolder
colours: standout check sweaters by Polo Ralph Lauren  and Hackett or vibrant check trousers by Tommy Hilfiger make a strong statement, especially when contrasted with relaxed-fit streetwear shapes and your favourite sneakers. 

Diesel | RRP £150 | Our Price £37

Levi's | RRP £95 | Our Price £35

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 Levi's, Diesel and Ted Baker 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 Reiss and Castore 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 Coach and Calvin Klein, high tops by Converse and Nike and finished off with a studded belt and baseball cap. 

Gant | RRP £115 | Our Price £69

Superdry | RRP £109.99 | Our Price £74.99

If you want proof that you can never be too cool for school, then this season’s preppy trend is it! It’s the perfect time to flex your vintage polos with contemporary varsity jackets and plug into some 50s nostalgia. The key item is the letterman jacket, and you can find great examples in bold colours at the likes of Superdry. Complement the jacket with straight-leg chinos by Gant or go for a sportier look with trackpants by Lacoste and Champion. Either way, keep it colourful and relaxed, tapping into collegiate icons like the striped rugby shirt. Baseball caps and high-tops by Adidas and Calvin Klein keep the streetwear cachet high and are a slick way to finish off the look.
