Anyone who has watched Mr Robot will have a head start this season, because the corporate drones who work at the drama’s fictional E Corp got an unlikely outing on the catwalk, namely for Off-White and Prada. There were lanyards and “unfashion” cagoules familiar to any office worker on a rainy commute. To take it beyond the 9-5, add pops of colouring and hope no one asked to reset their password. If you buy only one thing: fleece, PS45, by North Face, from asos.com

Everyone seems good in a checked shirt, and the padded versions are super-cosy. Continue it fresh by mingling up different colourings, or referencing the great outdoors with tree or forest publications on shirts and T-shirts. If you buy merely one thing: checked shirt, PS35, topman.com

The much-watched decorator at Calvin Klein was inspired by firefighters for AW18, and mailed his examples down the runway in parkas with hi-vis stripes across the sleeves. At Burberry, there used jackets that resembled the ones worn by 1970 s rubbish collectors. Retain it light touch with a neon purse or sweatshirt, rather than a glowing overcoat- unless being highly visible is part of your job description: in which suit the more neon, the very best, obvs. If you buy only one thing: neon billfold, PS68, by Comme des Garcons, from doverstreetmarket.com Explorer

Bear Grylls might be all about a fleece and knapsack, but fashion this season is more Scott of the Antarctic: chunky socks, large-scale sweaters, bobble hats and mountaineering knapsacks. Hiking boots are the easiest way to add a bit of explorer to a looking that works in the city. North Face and Timberland just about work, but better still to go for hiking-style boots from brands such as Grenson and Free People. NB: this is strictly streetwear; you’d probably get laughed off the mountain on an actual hike. If you buy merely one thing: hiking boots, PS125, by Toms, from office.co.uk

Fashion has never recovered from Brokeback Mountain. Ang Lee’s 2005 cinema is in evidence again this season, with cowboy swagger on the catwalk at Dsquared2 and elsewhere. If the hat is too much, try a shirt; the best are satin with piping. To avoid the Woody from Toy Storylook, wear your shirt loose, with non-cowboy jeans and casual trainers. Envisage of it as the autumn alternative to the Hawaiian shirt. If you buy simply one thing: cowboy shirt( or similar) PS25, beyond retro.com[amazon_link asins=’B0721JTPDZ,B06Y26DP1R,B076BQL71V’ template=’ProductGrid’ store=’out-wp-amazn-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’c1467c6b-eddc-11e8-adc6-8bcf19ae25ba’]
