For her

Dramatic florals

 

We all love florals for spring and summer, but this winter they've been amped up with a dark and decadent twist. Layer striking dresses with oversized coats covered in punky blooms to nail this look.

Animal magic

 

Take a walk on the wild side this autumn with an animal print (or two)! Zebra stripes are taking centre stage, but there are also lots of amazing leopard pieces you'll want to snap up as well.

Check, please!

 

Tweeds, plaids, tartans and checks are essential for AW18. From mini skirts to two-piece suits, our stores have an abundance of options to tick this trend's box. It's a season to experiment, so don't be afraid to clash your checks with animal prints, colour blocks and statement accessories.

For him

 

 

New neutrals

 

Who says neutrals are drab? AW18 is all about shades of biscuit, camel, tan, taupe and chocolate. Choose structured coats and 70s-style knits, then team with your favourite jeans and trainers for a contemporary look.

Pinstripes and puffers

 

Padded coats are still the outerwear du jour, so if you didn't invest last winter, now's the time! In true 2018 fashion, why not mix this recycled trend with a new one? Pinstripes were prevalent on the autumn winter men's catwalks, but not as you know them! Think relaxed and weekend-ready, rather than business formal.
