HOT

The blouse

The frillier the better. We love Givenchy's styles.

Jewelled flats

They made a comeback in the autumn shows of Alexander McQueen and Valentino.

One-shouldered dresses

Moving on from summer's Grecian styles, the new versions are sleeker and sexier.

Pastels

These Easter-egg inspired colours are cool again, thanks to brands such as Louis Vuitton.

NOT

Heavily embroidered dresses

Appropriate only if you are attending the Oscars - which, let's face it, most of us will not.

Going jewellery-less

It's all about heavy pieces - the more layered and chunky, the better.

Draw-string trousers

At the waist is fine but at the hems as well? Anyone want to look like a fishwife?

The bumble-bee look

Yes, yellow is lovely for the summer but not paired with black.
