Katie Wright reveals the trends to try now – from blazers to bikers to boucle.
In the fashion world, they call it the ‘transitional’ period – that early autumn phase when it’s too cold to go completely coatless but if you actually put on a parka, you’d end up sweltering in minutes.
Jackets, therefore, are the order of the day, ready to layer over dresses or under jumpers when it gets chilly.
A good jacket will come in handy for spring too, and on holidays when you need a cover-up for evening, so invest wisely now and you’ll be thanking us for years to come.

As for now? Here are autumn’s top jacket trends and where to shop them…

Coloured biker jackets


It’s safe to say a black biker jacket will never go out of style, but a coloured version will give your dark autumnal dresses a new lease of life.

Bright blazers
Last year was all about grey check blazers, but this year we’re loving block brights paired with cropped culottes and ankle boots for the office, or jeans and white trainers at the weekend.

Cord jackets


If you’re loving the AW18 Seventies trend then a cord jacket is a must, whether it’s a casual cosy trucker or a sharp blazer.

Boucle jackets


There’s really no need to shop at Chanel when the high street does the cropped boucle jacket so well. Make sure yours is boxy and buttonless for an authentic could-be-designer look.

Suede jackets


Create a fabulous texture and colour clash by teaming a suede jacket with slouchy knitwear and patent block-heeled boots.
