Corduroy

Dustin Hoffman's character in The Graduate just became your new season style god. Corduroy is back in a big way this autumn, especially when it came to tailoring. We'd recommend getting a full cord suit, cut slim in an understated shade of olive green or navy, or a pair of relaxed trousers to wear on the weekend. Pair up with a leather jacket to give them a rock and roll remix.

Next season: keep it camel. Whereas before we've seen this colour limited to outerwear, this autumn the way to wear it is from head to toe - mixing shades and patterns for maximum impact. And if this is a little bold, it can be broken up with a well placed pop of navy or cream.

Moss green

Foliage might be famously thin on the ground throughout the colder seasons, but for Autumn/Winter 2017 we'll all be making up for the lack of greenery on trees with our outfits. Rich, deep, mossy green (often in high-texture fabrics) was the most popular shade on the catwalks, applied to everything from suiting to streetwear. The best thing about this colour? It works brilliantly on all skin tones - so invest now.

Bright orange

Bright orange burst through as the colour you should use to add a zing of interest to your black, navy and grey staples this season. While we saw some pretty incredible coats in the colour hitting the catwalks, we'd recommend easing yourself into the shade with an orange T-shirt to bring a subtle pop of the colour to a dark knit or suit.

Roll-necks

Your neck is about to have the best cold season ever. Roll necks were more prolific than ever on the catwalks for the coming season, in a rainbow of colours, patterns, thicknesses and styles. However, if you need a bit of help figuring out what to go for, GQ would suggest you invest in two main styles: a camel or charcoal thin-gauge Merino iteration to slip under your suits (you can't beat John Smedley for these) and a thick, chunky knit to slip on at the weekend with a pair of those cord trousers you've just bought (go for a size up to hit the slouchy vibe of the season too).

Silk shirts

Maybe it's the continued Seventies revival happening in menswear at the moment, but silk shirts will be trending hard this coming autumn. However, while in previous where pyjama shirts have been the go-to style, this season there's more variety than ever. Sure that signature piping around the edge is still popular (see: Louis Vuitton), but designers are also rethinking how men can wear silk circa. 2017. One of our favourite examples for Autumn/Winter 2017 were the almost baseball-inspired deep-V iterations slipped under suiting at Ermenegildo Zegna.
