Take on autumn and winter in style with the latest looks!
Falling leaves and cooler weather: there's a change in the air. Autumn's on its way. Are you ready for a wardrobe refresh to match? Whether you're looking forward to full hibernation mode or celebrating and going out again at long last, we've got the fashion side of things well and truly covered.
We've rounded up six of our favourite trends for the oncoming seasons. There's everything from bold shapes and colours to party pieces and the downright cosy. It's all the inspiration you'll need to get the look from the catwalks!
Get cosy, stay cosy: quilted textures and puffer jackets aren't going anywhere, but you are. Wrap up against the oncoming cold in marshmallowy quilted layers. Neutral tones are king here, to make every day feel like a duvet day. It's a wonderfully practical trend that plays into our yearning to keep home comforts close. A way to ease yourself back into the great outdoors.
Ready for some colour therapy? Enter serotonin dressing. It's the concept of making bright and bold wardrobe choices to lift your mood. Brands are featuring statement pieces and entire looks for the new season in the most uplifting colours of the rainbow. Dress head-to-toe in one single hue to max out the trend, or colour block it with fun accessories.
After a spring and summer of all things cropped, the newest knitwear looks follow a relaxed, longline silhouette. Limb-hugging maxi shapes and ultra-long sleeves set you up for cosy layering through into the new year. You'll find snug sweaters in dark wintry tones, and bold jumper dresses abound.
This season there's a lean towards indigo and inkier shades. The darker tones have an air of rebellion to them, and a plucky, goes-with-everything quality. Swap faded styles for crisp, no-nonsense dark wash denim looks.

The days are getting shorter and so are the hemlines; it is the 20s again after all! This trend reflects of the spirit of joyous freedom we're entering into as the world opens back up again. Mini skirts and dresses bring a certain edge. Balance the look with sharp blazers, statement sleeves and clever layering.
Ready to go out out again? Fashion's love affair with all things disco continues, now embracing metallics, sequins and sparkling details as nightlife returns. This trend is the antithesis of loungewear, with more than a hint of Y2K nostalgia, and is right on time for AW21 party season.
