Its official, the new season has arrived and as we get ready to welcome fresh new trends, we wanted to prepare you some highlights for this fall. Although we are hoping an indian summer holds out a little longer, there is no denying that the temperatures are dropping. The colder weather brings with it a more exciting concept of style, allowing you to add further dimensions to your look with the layering technique. We are also excited to introduce a few new brands that have been added to our Woodhouse portfolio. So here we have provided a breakdown of the forecasted trends to piece alongside the AW15 collections available at Woodhouse.
A rather nostalgic and refreshed approach to this seasons trends include vintage sportswear which we can see in current brands, but also in brands which have since fallen from the fashion front are returning along with the revival of this trend. The two worlds of fashion and sports have made constant impacts on each other and as a result has been pushed into our everyday wardrobes. This look will embody and continue the sports luxe look as a rather dressed down approach for your casual lifestyle. This outfit includes the top brands that perfect this look. Adidas which have transcended through both scenes of sports and fashion for years. Similarly Fred Perry and Lacoste, an iconic brand that has embraced the vintage look in some key pieces of this seasons collection. Asics have created a lifestyle range which is inspired by archival styles from the 80s/90s to create a collection of re-born pieces, keeping that retro feel. Piecing the key vintage apparel with a rolled up light pair of jeans which is also seeing a revival this fall. If you’re still not convinced to leave indigo to a side, then this look will suit your current shade of denim.

Much alike the sportswear frenzy that we can see flowing through fashion, we’re getting serious varsity vibes through key pieces in brands such as Armani Jeans and Polo Ralph Lauren. The contrast sleeve is growing to be a big hit – previously bombers have been a key staple in your wardrobe this summer, and from what we can tell that is set to continue, but finding a place back in your closet will be the gilet which will imitate this contrast sleeve look that have been used in the details of bombers. This I will focus on next but here are a couple of examples this typically all-American look to illustrate this broad trend.

We accept that the vest has previously been seen to be apart of the less stylish gent but we should move on and give its damage image a well earned makeover. Layering it underneath a tailored blazer is a top trick and giving the gilet a new place in the modern mans wardrobe. Now, the example provided is a formal way to wear the vest but can also be used in the varsity trend instead of the typical bomber jacket which will make it more casual by combining with a pair of fresh trainers or pumps.

This is the perfect option to add a bit of creative layering and contrasting textures to your look. The Checked shirt alongside many things is joining the nostalgic approach to fashion trends this season. This style has always been lingering on the high-street but there is a noticeable focus on this style of shirt at the moment. Denim, although seen in recent seasons, is also a popular trend which will revive the 1970s denim on denim look – hard to achieve but can mimic icons such as Elvis and James Dean. Our style tip is to layer up, which will you both a functional and versatile wardrobe this Autumn. Keeping the over shirt plain will give you scope to add colour elsewhere.

ANY GREEN GOES
We have previously focussed on the blue trend and combining the different shades to create a full tonal outfit, this can easily be done with green and can be used in the same fashion, by pairing with the neutrals of black, beige and grey. Accents of burgundy can also be seen throughout the collections this season and is a complimentary match for the military ranges of green. Another colour to consider piecing with this is navy, which will easily be found in every mans wardrobe and will add a smart touch to the overall look. Below we have provided an outfit which combines these tips. Shearling is also a trend which will feature heavily in this winters fashion collectives, promising warmth this style is another revival which will give that rugged masculinity that we have seen on many icons one being the Steve McQueen.
