Sugared almond pastels
Revel in the power of colour. If kaleidoscopes of primaries and brights aren’t your thing then you’ll be thrilled to hear that ice-cream pastels were served all over the catwalks, courtesy of Céline, Preen and Hermès. Even the previously granny-ish lilac is set for some major rehabilitation. Colour yourself beautiful with us:
"I'm definitely feeling a bit more sparkle and that's amazing," Michael Halper told Vogue after his show. Designers made high-gloss glamour a priority and we saw an endless dazzle of glitter and sequins – Balmain’s disco-stopping tops, Jeremy Scott’s crystal-encrusted moto jacket, Tom Ford’s sparkling knickers and VB’s shimmering Harper slippers. Take a shine to these pieces:
Fluid, wearable and sensual
Prepare for the change in temperature with semi-transparent layers of sheer and soft wispy materials. It’s about romanticism, not sexiness; show glimpses of skin and hint at what lies beneath. The new bohemian, easy look isn’t too tailored. Break the rules on every piece – even pencil skirts are slouchier and less skin-tight. It’s time to channel Chanel, Loewe, Maxmara and Simone Rochas. Float over, and pick one of these.
Texture and fringing galore
Fringing is swishing across necklines, bags and dresses – this trend is flattering, sexy and attention grabbing. Think Beyoncé, Tina Turner, and 1920s flapper style. Whether it’s Saint Laurent’s already-iconic ‘sexy yeti’ boots, the swaggering, foot-long tassels at Céline, or Nina Ricci’s feathered tops, this is a trend in which to shimmy the night away.

The newest trend isn’t about a gentle jog; this is extreme sport. We covet Fenty x Puma wetsuits, trail-bike jackets and adrenaline-ready leather trousers at Alexander Wang. For a more wearable take on the look, add sporty layers to your current wardrobe. Pair “dad” trainers with summer dresses and embroidered jackets or a tracksuit with stilettos. Warning: even the shell suit is back. Jog on:
The rise of the sock
Embrace your inner geek and go big on sensible legwear. Wear your sparkliest evening sandals with sports socks, just as the models did at Miu Miu, or be inspired by Prada and rock schoolgirl-style knee socks. Why not pair yours with some clashing pieces with a nerdy edge? Sock it to em:
