With autumn now weeks away, we’re sharpening down the looks which you’ll need to wear. However, there are a lot of fashion trends to look over: pick heritage checks and classic capes for some seasonal starters then head through to silky slips and dainty shoes, and even another method to tie your scarf. Here are the top autumn fashion trends you need in 2019.
Up the baggies
Best worn with a stout flatform shoe to enable the fabric to bundle around the lower legs, loose pants strolled coolly along the catwalks at Loewe, Chanel and Gucci. Worn high over the hip, these slouchy pants came in substantially customised textures and neutral colours. Pockets essential.
Dainty does it
We were coming to the back of our wardrobes for our pointy siphons in the wake of seeing a progressively exquisite line of shoe exhibited during fashion month, however, there’s no compelling reason to bulk purchase Party Feet pads. Next season the heel is keeping it low at kitten height – see Emilia Wickstead, Christian Dior and Christopher Kane for details. Simply include ankle socks.
Checks and tartan: not groundbreaking for an autumn season, but always welcome, and there was more than usual on the show for next season. Even the master of heritage checks – Burberry – mixed it up a bit with some grid-like designs which were a mile away from its signature plaid, while Victoria Beckham showed a cracking three-piece blazer/cape/skirt combo.
Give it the slip
A piece of slinky, silky fabric is the name of the game when choosing a new dress for next season, but there are myriad choices when it comes to the shape. From floor-grazing gowns at Philosophy to billowy bohemian dresses with appealing sleeves at Chloe, this common trend will provide something for everyone.

Give it the slip
A bit of smooth, silky fabric is the name of the game when picking another dress for next season, however, there are myriad decisions with regards to the shape. From floor-touching outfits at Philosophy to billowy bohemian dresses with appealing sleeves at Chloe, this basic pattern will give something to everybody.
Think pink (and red)
Autumn 2019 is all about creative colour combinations, and our favourite is also one of the most widely used: pink and red. Usually, at the tomato and fuschia ends of the spectrum, this look works particularly well with lots of long layers, as seen at Jacquemus and Valentino. If you can find a red carpet to be photographed on while you’re wearing it, all the better.
Next season is a joy for the eclectic dresser, because along with the look-at-me tights, floral prints and checks on offer, there’s also licence to wear them all at once. At Versace, plaid skirts were split thigh-high to reveal silk slips with colourful lace trims. Elsewhere, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi spliced long tartan half-mini-half-maxis with lace petticoats. A smooth look to DIY.
