A couple of the Who What Wear editors and I were discussing the high street’s A/W 21 trends the other day, and the main thing we noted was how similar they were to last year’s offering. And you know what? It really is a breath of fresh air. Scroll through any new-in category right now, and you’ll see plenty of cold-weather heroes starting to trickle in: puffer coats, chunky boots, crew-neck knits and clean-lined tailoring. The emphasis seems to be on classics over gimmicks and versatility over novelty. Has the concept of trends taken a bit of a bashing over the last 12 months? Undoubtedly, and it shows.
