Like everyone else we’ll be squeezing each and every last drop of sunshine out of September, and doing random things like going for evening walks and sitting in a pub garden even when it’s raining, you know, the stuff you now realise you should’ve done more of when the summer sun was actually shining.
Yes, it’s that time of year, when autumn breaks and the world’s awash with wonderful colours, golden leaves line the streets and crazy sunsets cover the skies. It’s also time to switch up that wardrobe and get ready for dark nights and cold, crisp days.
Earlier this year the runways had all manner of wild and wonderful garments, from leopard print and double denim to lots of leather and some seriously oversized clobber.
But which of these trends are we likely to see on the high street and moreover which are the more realistic and stylish options? Let’s take a look at the Autumn/Winter 2019 trends.
Every type of jacket imaginable. From leather and suede, to duffel coats and long trench versions, and some seriously oversized puffers. Bigger is seemingly better.

It’s hard to get excited about wearing jumpers, as we cling on to the remnants of summer, but a chunky bit of knitwear will see you through the colder months and these chunky numbers are rather excellent.

Bovver boots seemed to be the order of play on the runways earlier this year, think hard-wearing, punk inspired working man’s footwear. We reckon boots are big, but keep the vibe more outdoorsy, like hiking footwear, and for smarter occasions a Chelsea style choice.

To top off the look the only accessory you really need is a giant enormous scarf, that’ll leave you looking like a 5-year-old on Bonfire night. Grab yourself a backpack and a decent chunky knit beanie and you’re good to go!
