HOT

Contrast lapels

Spice up a blazer with colour-contrasting lapels.

Purple-grey nails

Move over taupe, this is the new shade for autumn.

White and tan

The colour combination of the season.

Rucksacks

Fashionable and practical.

NOT

Strappy wedges

Nothing less elegant than stomping around in buckle-laden wedges.

Cut-off cardigans

Even J.Crew can't flog them.

Boho bags

You know those colourful ones you picked up on holiday and thought were chic? They're not.

Denim shirt-and-leggings combo

Alexa Chung may have thought she looked stylish, but we didn't.
