DARK ROMANCE:
Dark romance was one of the biggest looks shown.Get dark and dangerouse in black be it an off the shoulder, LBD or the long and lean maxi.
Add lashings of lace,both edgy and femening its the detail du jour, add high drama with embellishment:dark damask, sequins, feathers and dramatic jewels.

COUNTRY LIFE:
The knotted silk scarf leads the way in the Country Life trend. Team it with fur, sheepskin, shearling and tweed and youÂ’re set for days in the country hob nobbing with the aristocracy. Too much at once? Then all the above work well with simple separates (fine knits, wide legged denim, white shirts and silk blouses

PLAID PARADE:
Follow D&G, House of Holland and Preen in what can only be described as a plaid parade. Plaid / tartan / hounds tooth should be in every womanÂ’s wardrobe this season. Oopt for the modern day alternative to the rodeo lumberjack or be bold and clash a head to toe ensemble of contrasting oversized checks.

RED ALERT:
Of all the jewel colours (emerald, sapphire, amethyst, citrine) that graced the runways, red was the shining star. Whether in shades or ruby, scarlet or tomato – don’t go without a ruffle red blouse, a LRrD (nothing makes a cocktail statement better) or a colour bright coat. Complete the look with black opaque tights and patent black accessories.

POWER DRESSER:
Show you mean business and look for architectural shapes and structured silhouettes. The cut is contrasting: either sharp and severe or round and billowing at the shoulders. The power suit is back. Coats are best kept simple and belted; buttons and fastenings are hidden.
