With “final orders” being called on the British summer and your factor 50 sunblock safely locked away, we give you the low down on how to keep warm and stay hot on trend during the autumn months.
There are a few key essentials to help you pull through:
If there’s one thing we can predict from summer’s transition into autumn, its heavy rain. And whilst a reliable umbrella is a safe option for waterproofing your look, a raincoat is more practical and less likely to be left on a train or under your seat on the bus. However, no shape is more popular this season than the duffle coat and this delightful ensemble smashed through the catwalks at fashion week (with camel being the colour of choice) capturing the hearts of its audience.
SCOTCH & SODA BRIGHT INK FISH TAIL TRENCH COAT – £24.95
The Fish Tail Trench Coat by Scotch & Soda comes in Bright Ink colour. Featuring detachable hood, fish tail bottom, removable inner lining jacket and spread collar, this jacket for men sports button closure, brand tab to the left bottom side and long sleeves with loose buttoned cuffs.
When the cold kicks in, everyone reaches for that second layer and what better way to team up that oversized shirt or designer tee than with a super cool, chunky, cable-knit jumper. Try and opt for warm colours like copper, maroon or burgundy. The main trick to remember when teaming this with a shirt is to ensure the shirt has a snug fit and lightweight structure so it sits under the jumper without forming any unsightly bulges or creases. Also, keeping the collar style classic and minimal works well with crew neck styles.

Coming in Dark Navy colour, Minimum offers this Jovan Cable Knit, featuring a small logo attached above the left waist hemline. With crafted design, this jumper sports a ribbed crew neck, and long sleeves with ribbed cuffs and hemline.
Blazers are a timeless and fundamental piece in every man’s wardrobe and work well in the autumn, perhaps when going to the theatre or to a friend’s house for dinner. They’re constantly being adapted to fit seasonal trends. When sporting a blazer you want to make sure you’re wearing your true size, the last thing you want is to give off the impression that you’ve borrowed somebody else’s jacket and with lower temperatures fast approaching, you need to be able to rely on seasonal fabrics such as wool and tweed. There’s simply no way that they will be out of fashion. Introducing one of these blazers to your wardrobe will always be a safe and style-savvy investment.
