What colour clothes pair best with the autumn season? What trends will we see in AW19?

This season I'll be deeply investing in brown checks, with neutral stone and cream colour-ways. 

The check brown trousers are a skinny fit, with single reverse pleats. They're a poly-blend so they can take a kicking and the moths won't get to them. I'll pair them with a brown check scarf which will tie the look together. 

Really these trousers will be perfect for the autumn season. I have a few tan boots, black loafers and trainers that will all pair nicely with this. The monk strap boot is a great finish. With suede fabric uppers it has an earthy quality to it. As opposed to a patina or a hi-shine brown shoe that would look jarring. 

I'm also loving the stone long knitted sleeve jumper. Stone is a great colour that you can interchange with many suit trousers, khakis or denim. It's not a luxury fabric, but if you're looking to upgrade your Autumn wardrobe on a budget this is a great place to start. 

I'm keeping the colours browns and tans in line with this stone double breasted belted longline mac. It's water resistant and has some great traditional details that I'd hope to find on a mac. Like the storm flap detail, the buckle fastened belt and the epaulettes. 

I am also adding some gloss with my Raybans and Versace watch from my current wardrobe.

The key to buying clothes for Autumn are getting the neutral colours, but without looking like you'd disappear on a colour chart in Sofology. Notice the check pattern on my trousers are really leaping out. The fact I've paired that with my scarf lets the casual observer know that I'm wearing this look with intent.
