It’s a new season, not just in calendar terms but in the fashion seasons too. Summer is starting to fade and autumn is well on its way, although the last warm days still, thankfully, linger. This means you need your clothes to pull double duty – something that works now while you keep half an eye on the upcoming months. Our stylists have picked the pieces they love right now – and that they’ll love for a while to come.
“These Air Max Tailwinds really fuel that 90's nostalgia trend. They’re a versatile black and grey combo, but subtle, cool details like the neon and bubble sole makes them feel like the classic Nike’s,” says stylist Millie Rich
“This lightweight Tiger of Sweden woollen roll neck is a great piece to get your hands on as the weather starts to transition but isn’t fully autumnal yet. Light but cosy, it’s perfect for layering when the gloom hits,” says stylist Alice Watt.
“Don't only embrace dark shades when it comes to the new season. You can still play with patterns and bold colours; take this Colorful Standard organic wool beanie. Not only is it a shining example of ethical fashion, it’s also bright and bold, like a beacon shining on your head,” stylist Toby Standing.
“There’s no denying that menswear is getting a little more casual. Even in the world of tailoring, the formalities are blurring as shapes adapt to suit modern lifestyles. One of the best styles to come out of that is the tailored drawstring trousers. This Oliver Spencer pair gives you a smart look with bags of comfort,” says stylist Freddie Kemp.
“Barbour has really branched out recently, and I'm a huge fan of their more contemporary styles. This Beacon range has all of the practical, durable elements that gave the brand its pedigree but the styles are more suited to a more city-based lifestyle,” says stylist Brooke Philips.
“The outdoorsy, hiking trend looks to be a popular one for autumn, and these sturdy boots really hit the mark. The high-quality leather, rich brown leather stand out laces as well as the practical sole really makes these worth investing in,” says stylist Luke McDonald.
“A totally unexpected yet great year-round option. It’s a cool day shirt while the weather is still good – great for a festival or pub trip – but also elegant enough to wear out to dinner later in the year under a long wool coat,” says stylist Alexander McCalla
