Fashionistas longing for lower temperatures and even more fashion can look forward to the autumn at H&M, with lots of elegant tailoring and a nod to the early eighties.
The soft volumes and classic tweeds and silks from that era are back, along with the brown and beige colour palette. The suit and the blazer are functional everyday pieces teamed with denim or romantic frills and draping. Knitwear takes on new meaning in the autumn wardrobe, with classic fine knits like the oversized polo neck or boyfriend-style cardigan, or a feminine, figure-hugging jumper set. There are also creative jacquard-, cable- or braided knits, and heavy outerwear knits and accessories. Fine leather accessories, a cool manвЂ™s hat and a scarf complete the look.
вЂњItвЂ™s about being well dressed and comfortable too. Soft, warm and casual. A sporty and futuristic look in black with bright accents weighs against the tailoring and knitwear. Our customers like to mix and match the new with their old favourites to reinforce their own personal style,вЂќ says H&MвЂ™s head of design Ann-Sofie Johansson.

ItвЂ™s easy to be stylish this autumn with well known classics that are updated and styled in new ways. The tweed blazer and uniform jacket are the seasonal key pieces that highlight this autumnвЂ™s wardrobe. Pair with matching trousers and shirt as a casual suit, with jeans and a T-shirt for a sharper look or comfortably stylish over heavy knitwear. Accessories make the look: most important this season are scarves, hats and caps, belts, bags, gloves, heavy knit socks and cool boots to tuck the trousers into.
вЂњBoth tailored looks and uniform styles are spot on this autumn, and work well when styled to wear from day to evening. With such a clean cut collection you can be more playful and creative with the styling. I love the flat cap, scarf and gloves and the way trousers get a fresh look by being tucked into boots,вЂќ says Andreas LГ¶wenstam, menswear designer at H&M.
