As the leaves begin to brown we see women’s outerwear take its cues from nature with transitional coats for her coming through in a kaleidoscope of autumnal shades. Marc Jacobs and Ryan Roche were among the designers embracing earthy tones in their collections, with preppy-style blazers a key trans-season essential for women.
Natural hues also showed up at Michael Kors and Longchamp, while leather and suede are your go-to fabrics for channelling AW20’s Bohemian Folk trend. If you only invest in one trans-season coat this season, make it a brown suede blazer. This versatile hero piece will transport you effortlessly from work meetings to weekend brunches without missing a beat. AllSaints and Sandro offer a great blazer selection each season, so make them your first port of call.
Winter coats for her are oversized and ultra cosy, providing the perfect way to keep warm when the mercury plummets. While suede and shearling-trims will help you channel this season’s Bohemian Folk trend, ultimate snugness comes in the form of the mighty puffer, which is back in force for her and him this autumn/winter.
This retro 90s staple, once adopted in neon colour pops, takes on a more grown-up aesthetic in 2020 with darker hues and longer lengths now the way to go. The trend for retro tailoring also saw camel coats coming through on several AW20 runways. Check out the likes of Woolrich and Tommy Hilfiger for these, and select belted and faux fur styles that capture the authentic 70s feel that’s quintessential to this trend
