You can prep your autumn wardrobe from this month onwards with a geek chic vibe. So what’s new? Look to traditional retro checks, patterned knits and corduroy suits as staples, now with jarring brights and pops of neon to breathe youthful energy into the theme. Forget the rules and embrace clashing prints, throwing on glitzy accessories for extra chutzpah.

Hi-lo styling lives on and clothes to go out in take on an urban spin. Denim separates and jersey base layers in oversized proportions project cool against the amped-up glamour of ornamental earrings, rhinestone details and sequined flares.

Next season, the trend is refreshed with cropped and outsized trucker jackets and contrast white topstitch details. The Western aesthetic is modernized with head-to-toe denim styling. Don’t forget essentials such as studded belts, cowboy boots and neckerchiefs. To take this look past sunset, snap up snakeskin flares or studded PU dresses.

River Island

Clash on in the Bijou trend, combining animal-skin effects with mismatched opulent prints.

Get luxe in floral jacquards, which are kept modern thanks to aviator jacket and tracksuit silhouettes. Overall a feminine approach, fishnets, leather gloves and patent boots lend subversive punk attitude.

Throwing it back to the 1980s is nothing new but the message remains in full force for AW18/19 partywear.

Invest in encrusted tuxedos and strong-shouldered shift dresses, all the more attention-grabbing in bold animal prints. The focus is definitely clashing print stories but you’ll see asymmetric hemlines offer the fashion twist on these party-time staples. Style with statement hosiery and a leather baker boy cap.
