The shoulder-padded, nipped-in-waist styles are not going anywhere soon. Choose wide-shoulder trouser suits or sequin one-shoulder dresses paired with calf-length boots to get the look this winter.

Autumn florals are usually more muted and darker than their summer cousins, but this year is different. Bright florals in primary colours will add a vibrant touch when paired with boots and tights or a jacket.

Red is THE must-have colour for next season. So if you’re thinking of investing in a new LBD think again and go for a head-turning LRD. Red is great for casual daywear as well as smarter work-wear – try pairing high-waisted red trousers with a white shirt.
