Blazers are still hot property. The blazer continues to be the jacket of the moment. Wear with skinny jeans or a dress and tights for Winter, and come Spring/Summer you’ll be pairing yours with billowing trousers and tiny shorts.
2. Exaggerated shoulders
Shoulders just keep getting bigger and better. Pad them, embellish them, have strategic draping. Wear an oversized shoulder top with jeans for a casual take but for full throttle glamour wear a padded mini dress.
3. Oversized bag
Those silly clutch bags seemed like such a good idea, but we miss carrying all our necessary rubbish around with us. We therefore welcome the return of the larger bag. So grab yourself a tote or hobo and get shopping.

4. Large sunglasses
Keeping the Anna Wintour love alive we are loving giant sunglasses. They are the chicest way to keep the winter sun out of our eyes and are the ultimate staple on the beach. Now is an excellent time to get rid of those sand encrusted sunnies and pick up a pair of classic new ones.
5. The floral dress
Prints are going to be huge, and so invest now in a floral number to keep you looking chic even when the season changes. Pair now with opaque tights, ankle boots and leather jackets. Come summer you’ll be wanting candy coloured Mary-Janes and girly headband preferably with a giant bow.
