As we move from one season to another, a sweater is a man's best friend and can help you make the shift with minimum fuss.

Frock 'n' roll

The one thing that can be said about the fashion at the Grammys is that a little craziness is never really misplaced.

If you're looking for chic red carpet trends, you won't find them here.

On style, she rules

I'm having such a hard time with this recession. I can't allow myself to buy new cocktail dresses but my little black dress can only make so many outings. How can I refresh my look without hammering my credit card or adding just an awkward belt?

Return of the classics

Trench coats (right), the little black dress, a crisp white shirt - staples to take you through to spring.

Cowl necklines

Feminine and far more flattering than a turtleneck.

Statement coats

Black may be timeless but go for a bright colour to warm up the colder days.
