Looking ahead to the autumn fashion trends of 2020

With autumn slowly creeping in, it’s time to take a look at what to expect from this vibrant and varied season. While the leaves are falling and the nights are drawing in, it brings with it a new colour range, new styles and warmer garments to help us transition into winter. Even though the summer isn’t quite over yet, here’s an insight into what to expect in the coming months.

Jewel tones

We’re not saying goodbye to those bright colours just yet. Holding onto them for a little longer, this season will welcome in jewel tones that you’ll also be able to take with you into the winter. Think shades of rose quarts, ruby red and emerald tones to compliment the falling autumn leaves.

If you’re not a big lover of bold colours don’t worry. They’re incredibly easy to pair with your favourite little black dress or even your office attire. Simply wear these stunning colours in your accessories or even your tights and shoes!

Capes and ponchos

Not all heroes wear capes – but in autumn, you do. Forget about the dated and old-fashioned looking capes and ponchos of yesteryear, say hello to the sleek and sophisticated designs with silhouettes perfect for everyone. Think oversized and cool. 

XXL bags

Every woman needs an oversized bag in their life, and the XXL bag is no exception. Allowing you to be prepared for every situation possible, tote bags like those from Radley are a must have for the autumn season and beyond. 

An investment piece that will last you a lifetime, the tote is perfect for all manner of occasion. From shopping with friends to the perfect companion on a flight – and with so many stylish designs available, you may even need to invest in more than one!


Knitwear will always be a must for autumn and winter. Light and breezy options are perfect for transitioning into the cooler months, and thanks to the new trends, aren’t frumpy and lifeless like they once were. Try chunky knits with cut outs, big bold prints and even jewelled designs. Depending on the length, knits are perfect to be pared with both jeans and skirts. 

Finish off your look with your larger than life tote bag and a pair of on trend boots, and you’ll look as though you’ve walked straight off the runway!
