Super-soft shearling

Super-soft shearling

Probably the cosiest of the coats, shearling is perfect for tackling the bitter British winter. Coach and Belstaff opted for timeless aviator designs in their AW15 collections, while Topman wowed with jewel-like sapphire and emerald suede. We’ll be wearing this faux leather bomber by asos.com for extra warmth on icy weekends.

Pick a green, any green

Pick a green, any green

The menswear catwalks were awash with the brightest, boldest shades, but a less intimidating palette has caught the eyes of our high street favourites for AW15. From earthy moss shades to citrusy lime, green is the colour to be seen in this season. Be inspired by Alexander McQueen and try green upon green - this simple longline tee by Burton is a great start.

Checks and tartan

On the catwalks these endlessly dapper patterns appeared on every item of clothing imaginable - no really. Basic tees, accessories and tailored three-pieces donned this very British finish. Dunhill’s contemporary approach to layering saw clashing checks on top of one another, a look which we’ll be emulating when the temperature drops.

Silver fox

It would be very easy for us to write a Christian Grey/50 Shades pun, but we're going to spare you the cheesy humour and focus on our favourite hue of the season. Oliver Spencer saw models dressed in grey from head to toe, while other designers opted for simple staples you'll want to wear right away. Searching for a few new pieces? Make sure they're any shade of grey.

The return of the roll neck

The return of the roll neck

Spotted in nearly all of the AW15 menswear collections, this cold-weather classic is a real must this season. Knitted, patterned or crafted in versatile jersey, the polo neck is certainly here to stay. We love River Island’s ribbed number - swap out your button-down shirt and try wearing your polo under office tailoring.

Quilted and padded

Quilted and padded

Nothing suits the big chill better than a comfy quilted coat or padded jacket. Maharishi and Diesel Black Gold embraced this rather practical style with sporty silhouettes ideal for dressed down days. For a more wallet-friendly option, look to Mango - the brand’s hooded style will be one to reach for year after year.
