It's official. It's September. Bye bye, sunshine (what little we had in the UK). Bye bye, t-shirt temperatures, sunglasses and shorts, the only thing you'll need from now until well into next year is a great big thick coat that makes you look a stone or two heavier than you actually are-right? Wrong.

Autumn is typically, pretty unreliable. It's bright and sunny one minute, then you're drenched head to toe the next. So how do you fight this rogue weather without looking like you'd roll down a hill if you fell?

Layering is the only fool proof solution to your Autumn and Winter woes; keeping you warm and dry whilst making sure that you still look the part. Mix textures, patterns and colour's to keep your look fresh and alive-avoid matching tones from your shirt through your jumper and onto your jacket. This WILL look daft. However, let us show you how easy getting it right can be...

Colourful Layering by Fred Perry, Ralph Lauren & Farah
"Don't be afraid to try brighter colours in dull weather "

A Ralph Lauren Oxford Shirt starts the look. We've chosen one in light pink to add some colour to those grey cloudy days. We've layered the shirt up with a Fred Perry heritage cricket sleeveless jumper. Made from 100% wool, this jumper is more than enough to keep off the chill, whilst the red that runs through the neck trim sits well with the colour of the shirt. Finally, the Farah Livingstone jacket completes the look. Lightweight, but with enough lining to keep you toasty, the contrast colouring stands out a treat whilst keeping in the colour scheme of the look. This jacket's hooded too-so no need for a brolly when the rain inevitably comes.

Reliable Autumn colours linked well with J Lindeberg, Paul Smith and Barbour Steve McQueen
"Use subtle colour matches to link layers"

This look relies on quintessential style-the gentleman of the high street, if you will. A classic J Lindeberg check shirt starts the look off with some classic Autumnal colours in grey and navy, mixed with a fashion driven burgundy. The grey tone is then continued with this Paul Smtih shawl collar knit, with a dark grey mix. It has to be the ideal jumper to chuck on when it gets breezey, and whip off when the sun comes out. This look is finished by a Barbour Steve McQueen crown jacket in black. Perhaps the ultimate jacket for proofing yourself against the weather, the highly sought after Steve McQueen range adds a fresh spin to a timeless classic. Stars and Stripes badging and lining make this piece stand out from the crowd-even in the pouring rain.
