Cool Corsets

Corsetry is back and this modern take sees cinched waists as the must-have accessory. This look was seen as textured and uber glam at Balmain (above).

Whereas, Joseph matched corsets over fraying unfinished outfits that showed the process of creativity in fashion. Finally, the likes of Prada used corsets as part of their meticulous mosaics.

Fur Trims

Winter fashion trends often see fur back on the menu but this season is all about the trim. Fur collars were seen at Oscar de la Renta.

Fur cuffs were also a beautiful addition to the Michael Kors AW16 (above) collection. A touch of fur is ideal for unpredictable weather and a touch of luxury.

Eighties Glam

Speaking of glam, the eighties are back with distressed fabrics and a disco feel. Isabel Marant (above) mixed leather, knitwear and over-sized coats to go from day to night in style.

Roland Mouret AW16, on the other hand, created dark and dangerous Kate Bush tributes. Deeper hues and heavier fabrics make this the fashion trend to be seen out in.

Puffa Power

Over-sized puffa coats are all the rage with Stella McCartney AW16 (above) showing how to wrap up in style. Likewise, Balaneciaga showed the nineties favourite.

This statement coat can take your leisure-wear to the next level and will be seen on fashionistas for months to come.

Purple Reign

The must-wear colour of the season is undoubtedly purple as seen in a variety of tones across the fashion weeks AW16. Miu Miu (above) showed it on floral formal-wear.

Similarly, Roberto Cavalli had floor-length silks whilst Michael Kors had an all-purple preppy number.

Stunning Sportswear

Sportswear is back for anther season but it was especially focused on at New York Fashion Week. At the same time, fashion brand of the moment, Vetements, were championing this fashion trend.

Bomber jackets have been the go-to transitional jacket for a while and now hoodies are being added to the mix. An easy-going look that will see slouchy street style come into its own.

Magical Metallics


(Oscar de la Renta from Vogue)

Metallics are seen in a rainbow of glory whether it's through shiny fabrics, sequins or embroidery. Oscar de la Renta AW16 closed with this magnificent piece.

Meanwhile, the likes of Burberry and Michael Kors went for more subtle glints within their pieces. Whether it's all-out or just a hint, metallics have already been filling our studio.

Check Mate


(Thom Browne from Vogue)

For those who aren't into metallics or puffa coats then the ultimate outerwear for this season is checked. It was perfectly matched with Isabel Marant eighties glam.

They were also on display at Thom Browne (above) combining sartorial splendour with a heritage pattern.



(Gucci from The Telegraph)

Ruffles are an off-shoot of the dress-up box look of recent seasons and it seems to be here to stay. The feminine fabric layering was seen at Gucci AW16 (above).

They also graced Roksanda AW16 on silk evening gowns. They're the playful way to not take dressing up too seriously.

Gothic Princesses


(Valentino from Vogue)

There's a reason that the little black dress never goes out of style and now it has gotten even darker. The gothic winter fashion trend is strutting on the chic side.

All-black ensembles were seen on the Valentino runway and Victoriana was in full force at Simone Rocha.
