Want to make a statement? There's no better way than wearing one, bright colour from top to bottom. Try a bright suit, top and skirt or maxi dress with matching coat and shoes.
The bomber, or flight jacket, was a massive trend in the '90s and it's now back in style. A statement bomber will be warm through the cold months and can take you from work to play. Details on the runway included oversized bombers, vintage-inspired prints and embellishments
Shape-defining corsets are hot right now. Freshen it up for the season by wearing one over a demure top in a neutral colour or try a dress with a corset built in.
Gender fluid tailoring
While oversized blazers have been trending for a while now, they are (literally) bigger than ever this season. Pair with equally-slouchy tailored trousers to complete this relaxed-but-professional look.
Knitted clothing is always popular when it gets colder, though this year there is even more focus on knitwear than ever, to keep warm and reduce those crazy energy bills. Coats, chunky jumpers, dresses, cardies, co-ords and hats will all be knitted this season.
Whether you wear leather or animal-and-planet-friendly pleather, donning this light-catching fabric will keep you figuratively and literally hot this season. Cover yourself in p/leather from head-to-foot and treat it like armour, for maximum effect. Chunky, durable biker boots are also a winner.
Taking it back to the old school with low-rise waists, white tank tops, oversized neutral shirts and relaxed silhouettes. Put together a minimal look for effortless retro style.
Whether it's a coat, skirt or dress, the most trendy length will be all the way, baby. Maxis this season tend to have a streamlined silhouette. Maxi garments will keep you warm during those dark months. Dressing gown-style coats and floor-sweeping skirts will bring the drama.
As people start socialising more, all those glamourous fabrics and details are back in. The runway saw an abundance of sheer, cut-outs, embellishment, sparkle and shine.
Miniskirts are still having just as big a moment as their maxi counterparts. Get your Clueless vibe on with noughties' school uniform-inspired looks. Details include casually-knotted ties, cute collars, pleated skirts and tweed. From teen-inspired to stern boss, it all goes.
