Though you may not be ready to let go of summer just yet, we’re confident the inclusion of autumn's trends such as colour blocking and blooming botanicals (to name a few!) will be enough to whet your new-season appetite.
To save you time and endless scrolling, here’s a rundown of all the key men’s fashion pieces you should be investing this AW19 and what it means for your wardrobe over the coming months.
#### Silver Styling
A trusty alternative to the signature black, the arrival of grey and silver tones prove to be a trusty alternative for the upcoming months. Whether it’s ash grey, charcoal or platinum, this is a shade which transitions seamlessly from weekday to weekends. Fear looking sombre against a winter backdrop? Add colourful accessories and outerwear to bring life to your look to life. We love patterned pocket squares when worn with a suit, and colourful accessories for a perfect finishing touch.
#### Colour Blocking
After several seasons of earthy, muted tones; we’re crushing over colour blocking. A technique which involves pairing together colours or shades that sit at the opposite end of the colour spectrum, this is one trend wallflowers need not apply for. If you consider yourself the modern man wanting an excuse to go crazy for Crayola, now’s your chance. We advise to keep the colour on top and neutrals at the bottom. [The Tommy Jeans Flag Cargo Jacket](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/coats-and-jackets/lightweight/flag-cargo-jacket/2530010589953.html) pairs effortlessly with the [Tommy Jeans Tommy Badge T-shirt](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/t-shirts/logo/tommy-badge-t-shirt/0001050178-667.html). Not only are green and red on opposite ends of the spectrum, the red applique branding on the back carries through to the shirt; great for if you still want to look coordinated.

Enter moody winter florals in muted tones. Whether worn with a tailored blazer or laid-back jeans, winter florals are perfect for those who like to give the illusion of thought-out dressing…without having to do the planning.

#### Denim Days
Chambray or denim, whichever you prefer to wear - just know you’ll be adding denim to your cart all season long.
