Womenswear Autumn 16: The Drapers Edit

Relax into the new season with Drapers’ exclusive womenswear photo shoot previewing the best of the new collections.

 Autumn 16 is a season of elegant contrasts. Timeless classics with cool, contemporary updates. Smart and casual combine, neither dressed up nor dressed down, while a feminine feel meets with some menswear elements. Items come neatly tailored or loose and louche. Some designs are pared back and understated, while basics are elevated through considered, luxurious or distinctive fabrics and embellishments.

Must-buys include oversized coats that envelop, knits and capes that cocoon, wide trousers that swish, and slinky, silky pyjama-style tops. Transitional layers are also important – think sleeveless jackets or chunky cardigan-coat hybrids – while unique textiles and interesting textures will bring a point of difference to your buy.
