"If Gucci is doing it, you know it’s big news. Think coats and trouser suits in everything from a subtle Prince of Wales check to tartan in punchy colours."

Mighty midi

"And the award for the most wearable trend on the A/W catwalks goes to: the midi dress. Wear it with trainers, toughened up with boots or layered on top of a roll neck; transitioning into autumn is simple."

Dress, boots

Autumn florals

"Fashion has fallen in love with florals and it looks like they’re here to stay. Turn heads in flowery dresses or floaty floral skirts. The busier the print, the better!"

Coat, dress, boots

Clockwork orange

"Introducing the most cheerful trend this season: bright orange. When summer turns to autumn, there’s no better way to splash some sunshine into your wardrobe."

Jumper, skirt

Sporty chic

"Au revoir athleisure and welcome back sports luxe. I’m talking technical fabrics, cool zippers and trousers stitched with side stripes."

Blouse, jeans

Boot camp

"When designers sent their models down the A/W catwalks in leather knee-high boots, a big trend was born. I’m sold!"

Clockwise from top left: Riding boots, military boots, chelsea boots, heeled boots

In the hood

"If ever there was a time for coats, now is it. But whatever you opt for, make sure it has a sizeable hood. Just about everything hooded was sent down the catwalk, so make parkas or puffas your #coatgoals."

Coat, shirt and T-shirt set, jeans, belt

Chunky knits

"Knits in autumn? Always. And one is never enough. This season, it’s all about the extra chunky textures in neutral shades of grey, black and navy."

Scarf, jumper

Get shirty

"Shirts are back on the agenda. Your first point of call should be checks or plaids and, for the more adventurous, be brave and nail double denim. It’s certainly got my seal of approval!"

Shirt, T-shirt, belt

Shine bright

"Metallics aren’t just for Christmas! Sprinkle some fairy dust into their lives all season long with glittery skirts and tops and sequinned everything. Your mini magpies will love it!"

Fall into line

"All things striped are having a moment. But instead of sailing down the nautical route, keep your little one looking fresh and neutral in shades of grey or black."

Coat, long-sleeve top

Streets ahead

"Looking for the coolest kid on the block? I’ve found him and this season he’s wearing anything street-inspired. This trend isn’t just for adults. Your mini one can get on board with logo tops, sporty
sweatshirts and trainers."

Bodywarmer, hoodie, jeans, trainers
