HOT

Chain-strap shoulder bags
Iconic and stylish, Coco Chanel was onto something when she created the 2.55 more than 50 years ago.

Matte sequins
Getting rid of unnecessary bling is in tune with the times. Besides, these sequins look much cooler.

Ruffled blouses
They're a spring favourite but this time wear them with plenty of jewels.

The exotic-skin shoe
They fit in with spring's tribal trend in a subtle way.

NOT

Ripped jeans
Back in everyone's books, except ours.

Mickey Mouse ears
Cute for children, not on our jackets.

Rumpled clothes
Yes, they appeared on the catwalk but we don't care for the slept-in look.

The garden trend
We love the florals and murky colours but some devotees look like they've spent the afternoon rolling in the mud.
