Make the shift to a fresh season now with our trend report. From crisp separates to unexpected colour pops – here’s the answer to new season dressing. This is AW14.
Make the 1960's your reference point. Mix rich fabrics with brocade and tweed, leather and lace, patent and polish - could the sixties be the best winter trend yet? Choose A-line skirts that kick at the hem, styled with a colour block top for a true sixties spin.
Strong and sharp meets minimal and monochrome for a modern, art-inspired twist on fashion’s favourite palette – black and white. On the runway, Dries Van Noten and Acne delivered a graphic collection packed with easy-to-layer separates and striking dresses. Wear with heels and a cute clutch. This slouchy coat by Helene Berman will add a stylish, practical finish.
The black shift dress is a party staple and a timeless addition to any wardrobe. For a fresh spin on this staple, take your cues from the catwalk. Dolce & Gabbana gave the shift a lift with beaded detail and embellishment. Wear yours with diamante studs from Swarovski. Finish with Lulu Guinness’s signature red bag.
Your favourite winter staple gets a catwalk makeover. This season’s line up included timeless classics from Stella McCartney and Valentino. A tip: the statement knit can be dressed up or down. Try Markus Lupfer’s witty slogan jumper with jeans for daytime cool. Switch for a midi skirt and chunky ankle boots by night.
