BORROWED FROM THE BOYS
The tomboy trend of past has been updated with a focus on more refined and tailored pieces. At big name shows such as Isabel Marant, Balenciaga and Gucci, we spotted masculine silhouettes including boxy coats, natty chequered trousers and pinstriped suits.
Stylists tip: Play with contrasts and proportions by pairing an oversized man’s shirt (belted at the waist) with skinny-fit denim and a spindly pair of heels.

The cape is back in the spotlight for Autumn/Winter 2016-17. From beaded and floor sweeping at Marc Jacobs to cropped and trimmed with fur at Prada, we’re lusting after the parade of fashion’s new IT piece.
Stylists tip: This chic cover-up will complete any outfit in a flash - layer over everything from evening cocktail frocks to office attire.

Jumbo jewellery was a huge trend at the various Fashion Weeks. Oversized earrings, bejewelled knuckledusters and a mash-up of chunky necklaces were seen across all four fashion capitals. At Marni, we loved the chandelier earrings decked in baubles, while at Dolce & Gabbana the models were adorned with crystal-encrusted velvet chokers and hairbands.
