The AW20 fashion shows fell just before lockdown restrictions were put in place in Europe. Since then, not only has the fashion industry faced huge challenges, but the way we dress has changed significantly. The word trend is now a dirty word in fashion circles as we all look to be more mindful with our consumption and buy items with longevity in mind. There is continued shift toward wearable, classic pieces so here are our favourite classic autumn pieces that will last far beyond one season.

Our hero pieces for dressing this autumn are relaxed silhouettes, cocooning knitwear, oversized outerwear, classic blazers, go-anywhere denim and statement trousers from; classic hounds-tooth to animal print skinnies to high-waisted crops. Leather and faux iterations have been key for several seasons, and they still dominate the runways from head-to-toe in shirts, jackets and trousers. Black is most certainly back, but post-box red also had a place in the AW20 collections. Also helping lift the spirits are animal kingdom motifs – think zebra stripes and snake prints.
