In just a few words, this season is all about top to tail grey, making mixing and matching easy.
Alongside the ever present blacks, rich leathery browns, and navy tones, grey basically monopolises this season’s colour palette.
So from deep charcoals and slates, to warm and cool greys, think neutral for the majority of your wardrobe.
To stay fashion forward, dress head to toe in grey garments, mixing up the look with contrasting fabrics, textures and shades.
In terms of winter’s must-haves, we recommend investing in a bomber jacket. Almost every designer has shown one in their A/W collection, from Pringle of Scotland to Burberry. Lined with thick wool or faux fur, not only do they look great, but they are a lot warmer than the classic trench you may be tempted to steer towards.
Chequered ties have also made a comeback. From bold and thick patterns, to thin, subtle designs, it's a smart look that you should find easy to incorporate in your outfit without feeling overly dressy.
Chequered shirts also remain a strong look and have filtered out onto the high street left right and centre, so shouldn’t be too difficult to hunt out.
Chunky, heavy cable knits are another fashionable, but practical must-have. Look out for them in turtle necks, muffler scarves and snoods.
And again, rugged, lace-up boots are essential for the snowy days ahead, all while being bang on trend. Wear loosely tied with skinny trousers or jeans tucked in or turned up.
Other key trends include contrasting sleeves, whether that be chunky knitted sleeves on a suit jacket, as seen on Les Hommes, Costume National and John Richmond, or leather sleeves on a winter coat, as seen on Gianfranco Ferre, DSquared and Z Zegna. This look is perfect for the man who prefers a smart-casual appearance and likes to mix up his textures.
Layering is also prevalent across all A/W collections. Layer up with a short over long combination of luxurious materials, such as rich wools and leathers. We recommend trying a mismatching waistcoat over a casual shirt; a popular look at Dolce & Gabbana.
