Fashion: FADING AWAY.

"PEASANT skirts are such an overdone trend and very last season," insists Kate Blythe, Elle's fashion features assistant. "This winter is all about ladylike tailoring, not frou-frou."

Although stylist Ceril Campbell believes that gypsy skirts in dark colours can still be worn, silhouette is in.

BRIGHT and bold African and tribal prints were everywhere this summer, but autumn sees a return to more restrained fabrics such as tweed.

"Sombre colours and tailored pieces are huge for autumn," Kate adds

COMBATS may have made a comeback this summer, thanks to the safari trend, and military may still be en vogue, but once again, these almost shapeless trousers can be relegated to the back of the wardrobe.

Camouflage just isn't fashionable any more, s o slip out of the armywear and into more fitted clothes that will show off your figure

PINK is predominantly seen as a spring shade and this winter is no exception.

The next few months will see a return t o black, and rich royal purple is the season's other favourite hue.

Other frivolous colours you can now put away include yellow, orange, and baby blue - instead, it's time to get into richer shades such as plum, maroon and navy

FASHION writers are all in agreement that wedges are only a summer shoe and shouldn't be worn in colder autumnal days.

"They were a key trend in spring/summer, and will still be popular next summer, but they aren't a winter look," says Kate.
