The Trend Guide

In the blink of an eye, the new season has landed. From your weekend style sorted to the only way to dress for evening, we’ve done the hard work for you – just read on for the trends to know about for the season ahead, complete with up to 70% off.

Black Out AW19

Total Blackout
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 Balmain, Celine and Dior 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.
Hyper Brights AW19

Bright Club
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 Versace, 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.
Go Graphic AW19

Go Graphic
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.
