HOT

Going collarless

Especially on coats, as seen at Yves Saint Laurent.

The square toe

Also known as the 'guillotine toe', as Vogue has amusingly coined it.

The Big Six

The supermodels of yore have made a comeback in ad campaigns thanks to the credit crunch (and let's be honest, they do it better than the Lilys and Sashas of the world).

The sleeveless coat

The perfect answer to global warming. Wear it long and belted at the waist.

NOT

Swimming caps

They may have inspired Miuccia, but not us. Michael Phelps wannabes should leave that look at the Water Cube, where it belongs.

The Lagerfeld bear

Almost as scary as the man himself.

Baggy jeans

Katie Holmes is not a style icon, so this is no excuse to copy her new favourite look.

Cocoon coats

Only if you want to look like a balloon.
