3. Prints continue to be big this season and are great for attracting attention to your more flattering features.
4. Leather, Lux leather is the choice on this season’s catwalk with black the colour of choice.
5. The trouser suit.
6. The country classics such as tweed, cord, plaid, quilting and over-sized jumpers.
7. Tones of purple, from garnet and plum to maroon, are proving popular for this autumn.
8. This season’s silhouette is still very much about the waist. Coats, dresses and suits are mostly belted at the waist.
9. Elements of brocade, embroidery and embellishment, kimono sleeves are out in force on the catwalks.
10. Other key pieces to consider include: Military Cartoon prints Statement coats, Metallic jeans, Snakeprint blouse, Smoking slippers and Luxe parka.
