I must admit, I’m a bit sad to put away my summery pieces (although in reality, some might say “WHAT summer”). But actually, having looked at this week’s major new H&M autumn launch, I’m not that devastated.
Revealing the third drop from its AW20 Studio Collection, the high street fave has instantly made me excited for the new season. H&M have delivered cosy, fashion-forward knitwear with some seriously glitzy bits thrown in too (whether we get a Christmas this year or not).
There’s a mix of neutral, easy-wearing shades like creamy beige and wintery whites, along with punchy azures, beautiful blues and glistening greens. There’s also lots of crowd-pleasing black staples that form the backbone to the collection – culottes, blazers and skirts. Ideal if you want to mix in some colour but not go too full-on.
On the whole, the new collection feels very 70s David Bowie-esque, with its metallic shirts, wide-leg jeans and razzle-dazzle sequins, ideal for the festive season. Even if that’s not on the cards this year, we reckon you’ll still find a way to wear them. The brown slim shirt and matching flares have sold out but trust me, I WILL hunt them down.
The tailored separates in the AW20 Studio drop have a more pared-down look to them, slouchier and oversized – perhaps a nod to our changing working wardrobe, where home has become the office.
This collection is for those that celebrate being oneself, above all else. Wear the bold earrings to work, try the lingerie-inspired dress over the red leather trousers, or layer with the deep V-neck dresses for a relaxed sexiness.
Here are my favourite pieces.
