Liberate your style

Posted on August 15th, 2018

After such a fabulous summer most of our minds are still in full holiday swing. However, when it comes to fashion everything works in advance. So, while we might all be thinking about catching a last few summer rays the fashion industry is way ahead of us – and the autumn and winter trends are already peaking their heads above the parapets. So, we’ve had a look at some of the trends that have been all over the catwalks – what should we be on the lookout for once the nights start to draw in and the mornings get ever chillier?

Coats are of course the best place to start. Your faithful winter coat will have been hibernated for sure this summer and could well be looking a bit worse for wear after last winter’s travails; so now’s the time to start thinking about an on-trend upgrade.


This autumn and winter, it’s all about making a splash with this seasons fashion sensation – think designer statements, multi-toned, full tracksuits, lux-y shell suits, bucket hats and oversized fugly sneakers. The nineties trend hits its (very aggy) stride for Autumn Winter 2018 with a massive tip the the Gallagher brothers festival appearances. The catwalks have showcased outlandish designs from duffel-cross-puffa-jackets, think oversized, ultra long, worn out and plenty of fur – sometimes all at the same time. Though you might not fancy incorporating all of these elements into your own outerwear extravaganza, there are a few details that you can easily draw on when looking for your new winter coat.

The classics are still the fashionista go-to; double breasted greatcoats, original duffle coats and pea coats are all staples of many designer creations (if you’re lucky you may even find a couple in our end of Summer Clearance Sale – with up to 50% off many Duffle Coats, it’s definitely worth a look!). You can incorporate these into your wardrobe easily, perhaps looking for dual colours, textures and patterns for a bit more of a nod towards the catwalks.


While the seasons go to coat might turn heads on the runway, your everyday look needn’t be quite as extravagant and you might just want to have a bit of freedom from the masses. You can still capture the essence of this season’s look with a well-styled silhouette, making sure that you’re ready to work and play when the heat of the sun finally heads off for winter. Visit
