Finally Autumn is here! The long Indian summer that the weathermen claim we had is all over and the nippy winter weather, typical of Blighty, is back with a vengeance. Fashion-wise this means that chunky knits and traditional winter warmers are hot on the fashion radar to keep you cosy but chic this season. Here at Next HQ we’ve picked out our key pieces from our NEW SEASON collection to prove that you don’t need to steal your man’s hoody to keep warm this winter!
Chunky knits rocked the catwalk this season and are perfect for any chilly day. If you’re like us and have a pale complexion – we suggest choosing berry colours to bring out a blushier tone! The length of this stitch roll neck sweater also means you can team with jeans for an afternoon stroll or leather look leggings for drinks with the girls. Not brave enough to rock a roll neck? Opt for our chunky sweater or cardigan for a similar take on winter chic.
Classic checks are the print of the moment, with designers sending models down the runway in everything from traditional tartan to more modern designs. When choosing your checks, take inspiration from Vivienne Westwood in her Punk heyday, making your tartan the focal point of your outfit. Our oversize casual shirt is perfect with cut out boots and dark denim for an Autumn shopping trip. For a more measured take on the tartan trend choose a textured check skirt or textured tunic which will stay current all season through.
As it gets chillier outside, it’s high time to invest in some statement faux fur. A cosy alternative to a parka, pea coat or trench, furs have been high on the fashion radar for many an AW. This neutral beauty looks great with grey jeans and delicate blouses, adding a little light touch to a dark winter day. Not feeling full fur? Rock a gilet or a suedette jacket for a subtle take on a key trend.
By investing in some key pieces from our Autumn Winter collection you’ll stay stylish and keep cosy all winter long!
