Stylist's shopping editor Lucy Reber on the four key trends from Milan that we'll be seeing in the year ahead.
It's when the fashion weeks circuit swings around to Milan that the key, stand-out trends become most ubiquitous. Here's what to invest in...
If the masters at Prada, Max Mara and Marni decree that pastels are cool for winter, then they are. Avoid looking saccharine by teaming your pastels with sludge colours for a slightly 'off' mix.
Polo neck it
You should be wearing a polo neck under EVERYTHING. The quick and easy way to update any look, plus it adds an extra layer of heat. Bonus.
It seems an amazing shearling coat isn't statement enough, now it needs to be patchwork too.
Suddenly the trouser suit looks cool again. It must be of mannish cut, preferably styled with a cravat like neck tie. Top of our list? Gucci's floral print version.
