Look run­way ready this win­ter

LUREXCEPTIONAL

Equal parts pretty and gritty, a lurex polo-neck or cardi­gan is the per­fect lay­er­ing piece, pro­vid­ing just the right

amount of raz­zle-daz­zle to brighten up a

dreary day.

JACQUARD AND FAST

Dou­ble-breasted with wide lapels, this sea­son’s on-trend outer­wear melds 18th cen­tury op­u­lence with stream­lined sil­hou­ettes fit for the mod­ern-day aris­to­crat. Go for Baroque, we say.

TIE ONE ON

When you want to try a trend but you’re scared to pull the trig­ger, accessories are al­ways the an­swer. A lurex scarf is the two-for-one deal of

the sea­son.

INTO THE FOLD

Neat pleats in nude hues are sashay­ing into our win­ter wardrobes right now.

We love bal­let-in­spired skirts tough­ened up with leather ac­cents.

PUFF LOVE

Big and quilted and stuffed with goose down, the puffer jacket is

the por­ta­ble sleep­ing bag you al­ways dreamed of. It’s never been eas­ier to get out of bed (or harder to get a seat on

the bus).

COLD WAR

Call it an off-duty

take on the mil­i­tary trend, we’re pre­par­ing to bat­tle win­ter’s

plung­ing tem­per­a­tures in slouchy, army green knitwear.

SASSY SUIT­ING

Move over dou­ble-denim, there’s a new tuxedo (or three) in

town. When it comes to top-to-toe

tex­ture we’re all vy­ing for vel­vet, but tweed and pin­stripe two-pieces also

of­fer a quirky al­ter­na­tive to the clas­sic black or

navy suit.

Run­way to real-way can some­times go the wrong way, but th­ese new

sea­son trends are as ready-to-wear as they say

Put a play­ful spin on a pro­fes­sional en­sem­ble with a pop of colour or a plung­ing neck­line. Bold or bare, your beauty look will show ev­ery­one you

mean busi­ness.

VEN­TI­LA­TION SIT­U­A­TION

Dur­ing win­ter, open­ing a win­dow to let the fresh air in is sup­posed

to make your house warmer and drier. Cut-outs work to­tally

the same way, right?

BLACK MAGIC

As seen at Jil San­der,

So­nia Rykiel and Top­shop Unique, the LBD just got a sparkly makeover. Go goth or go glam, just don’t go

out in the day­time – this look was made

for af­ter dark.

BOW DOWN WARM AND

FUZZY

Flam­boy­ant furs are not for the faint of heart, but worn over luxe, low-key pieces th­ese win­tery of­fer­ings from Gucci, Fendi and Saint Lau­rent

aren’t so much Se­same Street as Via Mon­te­napoleone.

From chok­ers, to scarves, to El­iz­a­bethan ruffs, neck accessories were ev­ery­where on the A/W 2016 run­ways, but none were more pro­lific than the bow. Whether your style is mas­cu­line, fem­i­nine, flouncy, or re­fined, take a bow and tie your whole en­sem­ble to­gether.
