PAUSE Trend: Five Autumn/Winter Must-Haves

October 30, 2015

Sure temperatures are dropping and leafs are falling, but that certainly doesn’t mean your fashion game has to go down too!


Autumn/Winter season provides a sensational opportunity for fresh beginnings. Forget the casual summer attire, it is the colder months when we get down to the style nittty gritty and we weed out the trend setters from the trend followers. So if you consider yourself a debonair James Bond type rather than a sartorial haphazard Jonny English, then the next five Autumn trends are a must have for saving the world, one great outfit at a time.

Chelsea Boots

Using the word immortalised by Keith Lemon, Chelsea boots are ‘Bang tidy’. Both easy on the eye and heavy duty, PAUSE can certainly guarantee they are enough to withstand the unpredictability of the colder months. Chelsea boots are those clothing rarities where style and practicality are married perfectly and with brands like Common Projects and Saint Laurent, there is certainly no shortage of choice. In a cognac brown or black, the styling potential is practically limitless, plus the heavy duty design provides a lot of room to layer up on top. But Chelsea boots look at their absolute finest when added with skinny black jeans, shirt and a long overcoat or biker jacket.

Shearling Jackets


Following the 70s revival – a personal trend favourite at PAUSE, brands such as Stuart Vevers and Coach are flooding their runways with striking shearling jackets. With so many modern style offerings, the trend has quickly diverted its course from Del Boy faux pas to 1930’s Aviator suave reminiscent of Steve McQueen. A shearling coat makes a stylishly classic combination with an oxford shirt/sweater pairing and black cotton trousers. However, if you want to go for something a little more edgy, opt for jeans and a statement patterned shirt. Considering a statement coat is a wardrobe staple all great outfits are built on, it is important to make the right choice in the outwear department. But with the shearling jacket on your shoulders just like a aviator pilot, you’ll be flying so fashionably high.

Turtle Neck

Nothing epitomises sophistication and cool better than a roll neck. It could be paired with a blazer and chino or a simple trouser and trainer combination and still make the outfit equally at home with the style elite. But considering it’s 2015, your generic black roll neck doesn’t quiet seem like a top of the fashion agenda. So instead, try out some more risque colour blocks. We at PAUSE are thinking bright red and navy, which add an eye catching twist to an outfit without making it any less sophisticated. Despite the pop of colour, the same style rules apply, so put on your blazer for an instantly dressed up look or keep it causal with trousers and sneakers.

With Mother Nature changing the environment, its no surprise her influences would be felt in fashion. Autumn in particular is all about the earth tones. With such a wide selection of shades from opulent emerald green to the deeper shades like artichoke, autumnal colour pallete offers a flattering option for any skin tone. You can give it a go with parkas, simultaneously adding a trendy military feel to your outfit. Or you can experiment with your choice of chinos and trousers to give your look a new focal point. If you are searching for inspiration, PAUSE recommends you look no further than three style influencers above who have mastered this seasons earthy looks.

Loose/Wide Leg Trousers


On this list, the wide leg trousers trend is a trickier one to master. But if done right, it will guarantee you an effortlessly chic attire with an added bonus of envious comfort. To avoid looking like you raided your granddad’s wardrobe, PAUSE recommends to keep the rest of your outfit as clean and simple as possible. Think a round-neck white tee or a thick wool sweater and your classic Adidas Sam Smith‘s. And make sure the trousers hit below your ankles and are made from a thick fabric for that casual but still pull together look.
