MWD: GET AHEAD FOR AUTUMN

27.05.13

Yes, we know summer is finally in full swing, so the idea of what you'll be wearing next winter is probably the last thing on your mind. In the forward-thinking world of fashion however, the wheels of new trends are already in motion. Plus, it's always good to be a step ahead of the game. Read on to get a head start on planning your wardrobe with the hottest trends for AW13...

Trend One: Grey on Grey

It's hardly surprising that grey on grey is being labelled one of the most popular trends for autumn/winter as so many guys were already donning the look at January's London Collections: Men. From light grey woollen overcoats to charcoal tailored suits, the key to stylish dressing this autumn is to fade to grey.

Buy into the trend: There are so many options when it comes to the grey on grey look, however we recommend taking a sharp approach. A light grey three piece suit will look great worn over a charcoal textured tie and teamed with a crisp white shirt.

Trend Two: Powder Blue

Powder blue is set to be one of AW13's biggest colours. From laid-back knits to sharp suits, the pastel hue appears to be just as versatile as it is stylish. We've suggested some ways to try out the trend early, as pictured above and below. As Jamie Hince proved when he married the gorgeous Kate Moss, a powder-blue suit is perfect for a summer wedding.

Buy into the trend: Fancy trying out the powder blue trend early? A pale blue blazer is the perfect place to start. This lightweight piece is perfect for the warmer months; team it with a crisp white shirt and chinos to complete the look.

Trend Three: Double Monk Strap Shoes 

Following on from this spring/summer, double monk strap shoes are set to continue to be one of the most essential footwear styles for men in AW13. The distinctive style has no lacing, but is instead closed by double straps and buckles. Ideal for both formal and casual looks, every man should invest in this elegant style of shoe.

Buy into the trend: Our double monk strap shoes have been a firm favourite this season. Add Reuben in chestnut or Wallace in honey to your footwear collection for an instant injection of of-the-moment style.
