Al eyes were on New York, Milan, London and Paris this season to see how designers would interpret the new season in the midst of #TimesUp and #MeToo. The first runway shows showcasing autumn fashion since the Weinstein scandal offered up differing takes on the new climate, with some shying away from it, others offering up tried-and-tested statements on empowerment and others making bold statements with their clothes.

What resulted was a season of multiple trends, largely positive in feel, with plenty of pieces that women will actually want to wear. So what will autumn fashion look like next season? From the new power skirt suit to the evolution of the legging from leisurewear to glamwear, these are the six trends that we are the most excited about wearing come autumn.
Leggings got a glam makeover for autumn/winter 2018, with everyone’s favourite loungewear cast in sequins, animal print and wet-look leather for a look that is more going out than working out. Tom Ford was the undisputed ringleader in this respect, sending the most outré versions down his catwalk, while Alexander Wang’s were more sport-inflected and Victoria Beckham’s flattering and practical, with Saint Laurent’s the most grown-up of the pack, being a hybrid between leggings and slim-fit cigarette pants.
