Fashion this Autumn/Winter is all about embracing the great outdoors. But don’t worry that doesn’t mean you have to start camping or hiking if that’s not what you’re into. You just have to dress as though a bracing walk in the country is your idea of a perfect Sunday. We take a look at some of the essential items you’ll need to get the look…
Finally, a winter coat that is waterproof, cosy, has a hood AND is stylish. The bigger the better should be your motto – think over-sized shapes with statement fur hoods. While neutral black, grey or khaki are all bang on trend, if you want to add a pop of colour why not try a bold orange parka? You certainly won’t get lost whether you’re wondering in the wilds or down the high street.
Tough-looking hiking boots are the footwear of choice this winter. Moschino accessorised its punk-inspired get-ups with retro hiking boot heels, while Prada sent models down the runway in sandals with a chunky hiking boot sole.

Wrapping up warm is a must this Autumn/Winter, and not just because the temperature is plummeting. However, you should make sure your knits are made from natural fibres like wool or cashmere or you could end up rather sweaty.
Tweed has long been a style staple for country-dwellers and now it’s everywhere. Remember, a little goes a long way. So think tweed trim on your coat or tweed accessories rather than matching trousers and jacket.
