HOT

Tartan

Adds a splash of colour and Celtic feel to autumn's collections.

Calf-length dresses

Roland Mouret started the trend, and now even Victoria Beckham's first dress collection is based on this super-flattering length.

Pencil skirts

Secretarial chic is making a comeback.

Native American inspired sling bags

The battered leather and its easy-to-wear style is a real winner in our books.

NOT

Fedoras

It looks like you are trying too hard.

Ankle socks

If you are going to do any kind of visible sock it has to be the knee-high vintage Prada look.

Cartoon tees

They are not cute or amusing.

Shrugs

They look funny - if you are cold wear a cardigan.
