Bold chunky knits, long-line bohemian dresses and preppy pullovers are the cornerstones of style for women this AW20. Wrap up in oversized knitwear, as seen on the runways of Simone Rocha and Dolce & Gabbana, or keep things casual in distressed denim and cowboy boots from the likes of Kurt Geiger, Dune and Levis.
Knitted co-ords in muted colours (think Ryan Roche and Christian Wijnants) offer a strong day-to-night look that’s also workwear worthy, while bell-sleeved maxi dresses are a key transitional item to invest in as the days shorten. Accessorise with a large-buckled belt from Jaeger, a tasselled bag from Osprey London and hammered metal jewellery from Fossil, making sure to keep colours earthy and neutral.
If opting for knitwear this season, bigger is better. Dramatic oversized scarves (as seen at Michael Kors) are an accessible way to adopt the trend, while this season’s shearling coat is an AW20 essential that pairs brilliantly with boho prints.
Loose fitting and relaxed denim is in for autumn winter, so sidestep fitted styles and plump for mid-blue hues with a slightly vintage feel instead. Levis, Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger are your best bet for these. For smarter days, tailored separates layered with Peter Pan collar shirts and preppy cardigans, paired with a Mary Jane, will show you can balance style and business.
