A chill is sweeping the UK and we've all started to consider reaching for our woollen coats, knitted jumpers and heavy duty boots. And whilst the influx of autumn and winter trends came into our high street stores back in summer, now is actually the ideal time to equip your wardrobe with the latest styles.
Why, we hear you ask? Because Debenhams have just announced their Up to 50% off Autumn Sale.
We're all about looking good and hand-picking those seasonal essentials to take you through the new trends. So whilst we've given you the low down on this season's colours, cuts and patterns and styled our fellow ladies, we thought it was about time the men got a turn in the spotlight.
Allow us to guide you through this year's fashion trends for Autumn/Winter 2018 and pick up some bargains whilst we're at it.
Check Mate Your Fashion Game
We're overjoyed that check is making its infamous return. The perfect pattern for winter, get cosy with tartan red and plaid green. They're seasonal favourites that always manage to slip their way back into our autumn/winter wardrobe, specifically through our accessories. Tartan scarf, anyone? But this year it's making a big statement and infiltrating your entire outfit, from head to toe and not just small token pieces. Channel your inner lumberjack and go big with check.
What to Buy:
Debenhams' many concessions have pulled through to provide you with this season's must-wear pattern. From Red Herring to Ben Sherman, save up to 50% off with our Debenhams voucher codes and get great savings on these autumn sale picks. Up first is the ideal transitional layer to take you from crisp autumn to chilly winter. In a classic red tartan check, this jacket is made from wool and completes with borg collar. Now £52, down from £65.
You can't go wrong with a check shirt either. Red Herring does it again, introducing blue into a wine red and slim white lined check pattern. Get £5 off when you buy in the sale. Or, if you're looking for something a bit smarter, the Ben Sherman navy check trousers are the ideal choice for jazzing up your work attire, half price down to just £35.
Never Going Out of Style, Leather is Here for AW 2018
If the lumberjack look isn't your thing, leather most certainly will be. Leather jackets should be a staple in everyone's wardrobe, men and women alike. The ideal middle ground between summer's cold shoulders and thick winter coats, keep toasty with your leather jacket. As a trend though, you shouldn't be limited to the leather jacket. You can also add leather in other ways, including statement footwear and leather trousers. Longline leather jackets were a hit on the catwalk, so consider a slightly less conventional leather jacket if you decide to take that route this year.
What to Buy:
Combining an obsession with shearling this autumn/winter, too, our Debenhams pick would be the Steel & Jelly leather jacket with shearling collar. With £89.70 off the original price tag, you can choose between classic leather, or a more cowboy-esque (we'll get onto that later) tan leather. A twist on the simple leather jacket, this is a great investment piece that'll not only see you through trends year on year, but the seasons, too.
Take a Hike on this Year's Seasonal Trends
A fan of taking a vigorous walk out and about? Well a lot of models were hiking across the runways for the autumn/winter 2018 collections. And not just a casual stroll either. Think scaling Mount Everest (or at least Snowden) with big, ski-type jackets and durable boots. Short of sending you off on your own expedition, there are ways to take inspiration from this trend without going overboard and we've picked them out just for you.
What to Buy:
The idea of the hiking trend is all about layering up and we think knitwear plays a critical role in that. As a brand that's all about spending time in the wilderness, we think this Lands' End jumper, available at Debenhams for only £22, is the most apt choice. Debenhams are also bringing in strong contenders for footwear. With a selection of walking boots, we were a fan of the Regatta 'Kota' walking shoes. Not quite the height of a boot, these are a little more lowkey and will look flattering with a pair of skinny or slim cut jeans.
Lasso the Autumn/Winter Cowboy Style
Cowboy boots, lots of embroidered and gem encrusted leathers and interesting shirts. Say goodbye to parties, because this season fashion is very much a rodeo. Bid farewell to evenings at the pub, because you'll be knocking back shots of whiskey at the saloon and getting in showdowns. After you hoedown, of course.
What to Buy:
The great thing about a lot of this year's men's autumn winter trends is how easily they merge and compliment one another. Cowboy style is very much in, but you can already tick off checked shirts and leather jackets (although we could do with some more fringing). We think you'll agree no cowboy outfit is complete without a decent belt.
Cowboys are all about those impressive, oversized buckles. Taking a more muted approach, we think the Hammond & Co. by Patrick Grant and Jeff Banks belts are a great more laid back alternative with up to £10 off. Not quite the studded level of cowboy chic, the perforated detailing on both belts is a great testament to the Wild West.
So there you have it, lads. Top to tail, you can be ready to dress this seasons sometimes cosy, sometimes outrageous trends. And, thanks to the official My Favourite Voucher Codes styling tips, you're going to look great if we do say so ourselves.
