Straight from the runways of London, New York, Paris and Milan, these brand-new catwalk looks will give your wardrobe seriously ahead-of-the-curve kudos…
Prada’s runway was invaded by Mary-Jane heels in a variety of colours, cementing them as the new cult shoe shape. And we can all get our fix thanks to Marks & Spencer and New Look. Wear with babydoll dresses and tights for transitional cool, or with a cropped tailored trouser to channel Prada’s princesses. Either way, these footwear fancies provide round-the-clock comfort, meaning you really can wear them anywhere!
There’s no doubt that the ’60s reigned supreme for AW15, but the piece that really had us feeling the retro vibes were the striking printed miniskirts we saw just about everywhere in Paris. From Mugler to Olympia Le Tan, it was all about the super-short, A-line shape adorned with punchy patterns worn with tucked-in blouses. As luck would have it, the high street is totally crushing on them too, so we can all be ’60s sirens for spring.
Pack a citrus punch with zingy-hued pieces as seen at Veronique Branquinho and Lea Peckre. That’s one of your five a day sorted! Just remember to wear with neutral shades such as white and tan to avoid a harsh colour clash.
Nude Cat-Eye Shades
The queen of shades, Karen Walker, put a fresh spin on the classic cat-eye with her new blush incarnations. Big, bold and beige was the order of the day, and we’ll be following suit. Thankfully, Monki have got this one in the bag, while we’ve also found the actual copy for a fraction of the price.
Christopher Raeburn transformed his classic dresses with statement zips running down the front. As soon as we saw them, we were sold. The simplest of details, these zips are enough to take a frock from basic to showstopper in no time at all. Look to Warehouse for new season beauties.
