WHAT'S HOT

Thin belts

Go for an extra-long brown leather style wrapped twice around the waist.

The tribal vibe

Designers such as Oscar de la Renta went exotic this season. If you can't pull it off, consider donning an accessory such as an ikat scarf.

Grab bags

Not to be confused with clutch bags, these are bigger and more puffy.

Jumpsuits

They make trips to the bathroom difficult but who can resist Stella McCartney's floral version (far right) or Yves Saint Laurent's chic style?

WHAT'S NOT

Moccasin boots

Why are they still loitering, go away!

Sequined caps

It's shocking they even exist.

Shapeless tunics (above right)

Unless, of course, you are using them as a cover-up for the beach.

Heavy coats

As we wave goodbye to the cold, say hello to the lightweight blazer.
