Dramatic Femininity - There's an opulent look to femininity this autumn with winter florals. With an emphasis on the waist there is a gothic feel with sunray pleats, chiffon sleeves and black lace inserts. Patterns are fierce portrayed in dark glamour with structured pieces and strong peplums. The patterned pant also stars in bold florals and graphics ready to strike the right note.
Sleek Sci-Fi - Futuristic looks draw power pieces of pencil skirts and sculptured jackets with metallic embellishment in dark and clear shades. Studded jewellery pieces, wide cuffs, metallic textures and leather create a cyber look.
Animal Print - Big cat prints take on a new role in embellishments, top to toe, coats and vests. Snake prints feature in saccharine pastels and neutral shades with a feminine twist.
Sweet Chic - Go totally elegant and feminine in an angora jumper, Chanel jacket, soft floral pants and a shirt scattered with tiny dots of gold or silver. Add rose gold jewellery, bronze or pink suede shoes with soft quirky pastel combinations.
Loveable Lace - Lace continues to play a leading role with a romantic mood in deeper hues and varying colour combinations. Skirts star in port wine lace on black or try a midnight blue dress with highlights of raspberry. Sheer lace inserts and panels add a sensual feel to black dresses and shirts, while ivory lace motifs add nostalgia to slim black pants.
Snazzy Metallics - High gloss fabrics and metallic tones fuse together to create an ultra-polished look. Update staples with a pencil skirt in stunning hounds-tooth or a chic shift dress with metallic panelling. Focus on the details of an outfit by injecting a touch of metallic through a cardigan or subtle toned jeans.
Luxurious Leather - Statement leather pieces are wardrobe staples this season. Try a new look with a butter soft texture in a nude hued coat in classic knee length, slim tan pants or a navy tailored jacket. Capes and biker styles are really big this season along with quilting, drapes , perforations and croc -embossed textures. Leather inserts and panels look divine and team beautifully with many textures like tweed, wool or sheers.
Faux Leather - Separates with faux-leather panels are great for those on a budget however note they can cling to skin and lose shape after a few wears so look for the best quality you can.
Sparkly Sequins - Go subtle with a beaded collar blouse or all out glam with a sequinned beaded shift or skirt.
Beautiful Brocade - This decorative vintage fabric is having a revival in everything from tea frocks to bomber jackets and tailored pants. With its regal and elegant look brocade is updated this season with metallic threads running through it. It looks great in tailored pieces due to its stiffness.
Japonisme - The land of the rising sun is featured with hints, references and allusions to its heritage. Variations on the kimono style are cropped to cinch at the waist and flair over the hips. These easily go over jeans or trousers with flats. Simple dresses or separates in silks, adorned with cherry blossoms and Japanese wood-block-style prints look adorable along with lace-trimmed silk chiffon kimono jackets. Chrysanthemums also are featured along with the gentle art of origami, in artfully folded fabrics. A wide obi belt or stitched karate belt is used to cinch in the waist.
