A key trend this season is luxurious looking embellishments, especially in the form of rich fabrics such as brocade, and embroidered fabrics.
Pants and trousers are a stronger trend than dresses this season. You'll find matching tailored pant suits in plain and patterned fabrics too. Although there are still a good selection of dresses around.
The peplum is also still available on tops, dresses and coats.
Layering is a bigger-than-ever styling trend -- and practical for autumn and winter too! The latest layering trends include skirts over pants and dresses -- the pants can be skinny or fuller; shirts under sweaters or over high neck finer knits.
The key to getting layering right is to link your layers in some way. For example by color, size or texture. Also make sure the layers aren't too bulky and don't create too many color changes for your frame or silhouette.
Lengths are mainly around knee length, but some longer lengths too, especially above mid-calf. Look for patterned skirts as well as plain colors.
The main styles include:
There's a large choice of jackets and coats again this fashion season, including many statement styles. Styles include:
