It’s going to be a grey day in London this winter but for once it won’t be because of the drizzling weather – this is officially the shade to be seen in for fall and all the way into winter. Seen on every catwalk from Prada to Lanvin, it was sportswear inspired and extremely formal all at the same time. If you’re feeling brave, wear it head to toe with different textures and shades and an infusion of black. If you don’t feel like a completely new look, mix up some of your current pieces with some soft pale grey cashmere sweaters or throw on a silk scarf for a nod to this seasons trend.

This next trend isn’t straying too far from the obvious – jumpers for winter. However this fall it’s all about how you style said knitwear that will give you the edge. The trick this season is to layer your thin merino roll necks with a contrasting crew neck over the top. As seen at Christophe LeMaire, the monochrome pairing on the left will look understated and modern, finish it off with an oversized coat in a contrasting texture – the herringbone overcoat above from Sandro will continue the minimal aesthetic and tick another trend off of the list.
Clockwise from left – Tom Ford Cashmere Rollneck Sweater, Gieves & Hawkes Cashmere Rollneck, Paul Smith Merino Wool Rollneck, The Elder Statesmen Patterned Cashmere Sweater, Belstaff Cable-Knit Wool Sweater, Tom Ford Cable-Knit and Wool-Blend Sweater.
All Looks from Paul Smith
Pattern was a big trend on the catwalks for fall – with everything from subtle pattern to shocking colour that will ensure your street style status, it’s one of the easiest trends to integrate into your wardrobe for the colder months. Geometrics were big on the runway with one of the front-runner being Paul Smith with his easy and wearable checks. If you’re looking for a bolder look go for bold stripes with an overcoat in a contrasting muted hue to ground your look – but if you’re worried about stepping too far outside of your comfort zone, copy the Paul Smith looks and look at trousers with a subtle pattern in classic colours.
