Shapes: The Sixties are the new Seventies

It’s amazing how quickly decades come and go. Sixties flavoured A-line dresses, skirts and coats ruled the runways for collections such as Prada, Burberry Prorsum and Fendi, replacing all of those floaty ’70s looks you coveted last fall. Even trousers have a new feel to them in cigarette shapes with higher hemlines.

Prints: Polka-dots and stars are the new stripes

Last season it was all about stripes. But this fall, polka-dots and stars take the prize for the trendiest print. Thank Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney and Topshop Unique for all the spots you’re seeing in the shops, while Dolce & Gabbana are behind all those dresses covered in Milky Way that you’ve been seeing on the red carpet.

Ideas: Maximal is the new minimalism

Embellished to the hilt in crystals and glitter (Dolce &?Gabbana) or patchworked to the Gods (Fendi), details and ornamentation are suddenly very important. As seen on just about every runway, more is definitely more this season. And if you’re feeling really adventurous, combine them all in a single, in-your-face outfit and own it.
