Get Retrospective


Though the 90s trend is still enjoying a revival thanks to Giles, Balmain and more, Fashion Week saw nods to classic glamour from the 50s at Emilia Wickstead, retro kitsch at Orla Kiely and an 80s/90s mish-mash at Tom Ford. The bottom line? Old school glamour is in, so pick your favourite decade.

Go Black & White


When even Erdem Moralioglu is swapping swirls of colour for a monochrome palette, you know it's a thing. Louis Vuitton owned black and white with the oversized check last year, but 2014's take is a lot more free and ethereal. Play with loose shapes, wispy layers and don't be afraid to put black on black.

Keep the Pink Coat


When it comes to colour in 2014 pink is back again. Be it fuchsia, Mediterranean jewel shades or blushing pastel hues, keep shapes chic to nail the trend.

Statement Clutch Bags


Whether it's down to Kate Middleton or the 90s revival, clutch bags are back in fashion. Forget playing it safe though, 2014 is all about the statement clutch. Bold colours, quirky slogans, boxy shapes, embellished works of art - feel free to go crazy.

Luxe Tote Bags


At the other end of the handbag trend scale are the luxe leather totes. Seen at Victoria Beckham, Michael Kors, Jason Wu and more, this is about expensive looking shoulder bags with the space to carry your life essentials and more.
