Six of the best; The key looks that have leapt from the autumn/winter catwalk to the high street for fashion addicts ready to freshen up their wardrobe.


TECHNICALLY, autumn doesn't start for another week but if you're going by the sartorial calendar, it's well and truly here.

The first drops of the new season have arrived on shop floors, with snuggly sweaters and leather boots making the prospect of dipping temperatures not quite so depressing.

But don't start spending until you're up to speed with the season's style forecast. Here are the key fashion themes. ANIMAL PRINT Leopard roared back into fashion on the catwalks, from Max Mara to Tom Ford, while zebra was trotted out at Balenciaga and tiger print growled on the girls at Bottega Veneta. LEATHER The leather dress is one of the key pieces of the season, as seen at Stella McCartney (ruched), Givenchy (belted) and Victoria Beckham (collared).

SEVENTIES The decade most designers plundered this season.

Collars were long and sharp at Chloe. Coats were big and fluffy (Vuitton) or suede (Tory Burch). The colours - brown, beige, mustard, chestnut - were everywhere.

Tweed A tweed transformation took place throughout the season.

At Altuzarra, that meant sharp overcoats but the most creative example was in London, where Matty Bovan showed deconstructed woven skirt suits with fabulous houndstooth boots.

PLEATS A knee-length pleated skirt has become a summer staple but now designers are making the case for wearing a longer length in winter.

From the elegant evening styles at Emilia Wickstead, to the cream creations at Victoria Beckham, they're all delightfully swishy. HEADGEAR Hoods, balaclavas, berets - even crowns and tiaras were on display. But if you're looking for something less ostentatious, try a Versaceinspired beret or floral head scarf.
