New season fashion trends: A/W 2020

The fashion mavens spoken and, yes please, we'll take that excuse for new clothes and run with it! Here are the five top trends to help you nail autumn/ winter style this year.

Look-at-me collars

L-R: Ganni dress, £315.77, La Redoute shirt, £58, Monki t-shirt, £20.

Forget power shoulders, this season its all about the power collar and it’s the bigger the better, offset with feminine curved edges, embroidery and frills. Cult Copenhagen brand Ganni do it best (and at surprisingly reasonable prices for a designer brand) with loads of collared beauties in bright prints, like this pretty check dress, above. Or, if you’re playing it safe, stick to what you know and incorporate the trend with a crisp white shirt or t-shirt. Layer up your collar underneath a crew neck jumper (all the It-Girls are doing it).

Full-throttle red

L-R: Iris & Ink dress, £130, & Other Stories top, £17, Hobbs trousers, £99, H&M skirt, £24.99.

When you think of the classic autumn/winter colour palette, it’s all neutral tones, rusts and earthy hues – but not this year. Traffic-stopping red is the season’s hottest colour, and you should be wearing it from head to toe. For an easy option, stick with a dress (we love this flattering wrap design from Iris & Ink, above), or mix and match separates of the same shade. Stick to subtle, neutral accessories to avoid overkill.

Knitted vests

L-R: Asos, £28, COS, £99, H&M, £19.99.

This one’s a bit like Marmite, but we’re coming round to the idea! Knitted vests are moving away from their country club golf course image and into the fashion spotlight with chunky knits, neutral tones and can actually look super-chic layered over a white shirt with chunky gold jewellery.

Matrix chic

L-R: Zara dress, £49.99, Mango jacket, £339.99, H&M jacket, £39.99

No one can be told what The Matrix is, but you can sure be told how to nail the trend. Think clean lines, long macs, trenches, dresses – all in leather of course.  If you’re nervous and don’t want to splurge too much cash, go for a faux leather number like this sleek H&M one (above right). Don’t forget to add a slick back pony tail and tiny sunglasses (yes, really). Keanu would be proud.

Cardigan comeback

L-R: & Other Stories, £45, Jigsaw fine knit, £120, Free People, £158

On trend and comfy? Just how we like it. The cardigan is a sartorial staple for A/W 2020 and there’s plenty of choice from elegant wrap styles (we love this mint & Other Stories one) to chunky and slouchy knits. You likey? Find more gorgeous cardigans to add to basket in our feature here.
