WHAT'S HOT


Battery-powered cufflinks


They project a beam of light in six colours and are so kitsch, they're cool. Just be prepared to part with US$200. Available from www.ikuffs.com.


Mod-inspired shapes


Go for higher hemlines and bubble-shaped dresses inspired by Courreges.


Cowboy style


Thanks to the popularity of Brokeback Mountain, cowboys are hip again.


WHAT'S NOT


Velvet


Lace is the fabric for spring, but keep your structured jackets, which are now a classic.


Project Catwalk


The British version of Project Runway, hosted by Liz Hurley, just doesn't work.


Patent leather (left)


It clashes with this season's opulent fabrics.
