It’s the end of summer – back to school, back to work, back to the daily grind. But it’s not all doom and gloom. The end of one season marks the beginning of another, and the launch of the new collections. From Gucci to Balmain and Valentino, we’re facing the impending shorter days and colder nights with a lesson in the must-have pieces for autumn and a much-needed wardrobe upgrade. Pass AW19 with flying colours by studying our guide to the season’s hottest trends.

THE TRADITIONALIST

Feeling clueless? Take your style cues from Gucci’s collection of polished pieces with a retro aesthetic. Tweed GG shorts and a lightweight knit will lend your ‘back to college/reality’ look a stylish dose of elite Italian chic. You are not a fashion victim. Whatever.

THE REBEL

Break the style code with Balmain’s decadent and rebellious collection of signature monochrome pieces. This season we’re looking to the Parisian powerhouse for a hit of cool-girl lace-up boots and luxe red leather accessories.

THE PERFECTIONIST

Understated and feminine, Valentino’s uniform of smart denim and easy white Tees forms the perfect capsule wardrobe for boss women who prefer elegant, minimal style. Wear with iconic Rockstud accessories for an outfit that works as hard as you.
