AW16'S KEY OUTERWEAR STYLES

20.10.16

Discover the AW16 outerwear to know in our round-up of key styles

THE CAMEL COAT

There’s little more timeless than the camel coat and its forever relevance relies on something far more perennial than trends: tradition. Whether you take yours cropped to the hip or long in length, the styling possibilities are endless. Reference not only the streets of Fashion Week but Old Hollywood style and bring a little autumnal colour to a neutral palette. White shirting and jeans work best, but add a statement shoe to lend your look trend-focussed flair. 

THE HERITAGE CHECK

Refined, hounds-tooth checks will forever emit a certain sense of heritage design but when styled to suit the AW16 trends, they take on a somewhat more contemporary guise. Leather accents promise to tone down the ladylike connotations but to really up the impact, add colourful accents into the mix – embellished earrings and faux-fur scarf are this season’s most loved options.

FAUX FUR COAT

This season’s take on faux fur is a colourful alternative to classic natural hues that fuses modern cool with a touch of glamour. The most statement way to work the look? In the form of an oversized coat. Boxy cuts add to the impact and envelope the body in a way that says winter warmer like no other, and minimal detailing leaves the focus on the texture. For effortless charm, let one shoulder fall and reveal a graphic lace top. 

THE SHEARLING AVIATOR

The shearling aviator is this season’s cool-girl piece and only one styling rule applies: the bigger the better. Take yours a few sizes up and throw it on over everyday separates; leather leggings and block heel boots work well for winter days in the city and a cashmere knit and jeans translate perfectly for country walks.  

THE MAC

The mac is relevant all year round but switching a fresh, spring-ready colour palette for something a little darker is a guaranteed way to secure this style’s relevance in cooler climes. Make heavy-weight designs your choice for the depths of winter or layer up in lighter alternatives to brave autumnal showers, adding a cashmere jumper for an elegant combination.
