WHAT'S HOT

Cardigans

So useful in a town where the air-con is permanently set to sub-zero temperatures. Plus they are cute over dresses.

Shopping online

US sites are slashing prices thanks to the state of the economy.

Geometric prints (right)

Circles, squares, hexagons - take your pick. It makes a hip - and more wearable - alternative to florals.

Sheer shirts

Sexy - just make sure you are wearing a pretty bra underneath.

WHAT'S NOT

Neon knee-high socks

Style Meter has an issue with the colour and the style, let alone the two together.

Backless dresses

Somehow they don't seem as modern as they did five years ago. Not recommended for those with love handles either.

Over-embellished evening gowns (left)

Less is more. How many times do we have to tell you?

Anything that you buy pre-distressed

Things only look cool when you have worn them in.
