With winter firmly here, these are the colour trends from the catwalks to see you through next season. Thankfully, there is something for everyone and you can be as adventurous as you like!
All kinds of green are hugely influential this season. Everything from olive, to emerald, to an newly invented 2016 shade of teal are on hand to see you through the weathers.
It's the perfect match with black, but try Loewe's spearmint, or Prada's pretty blue green combos for a nod to the style setters.
Crimson shades are not hard to miss. Red is officially the hottest colour of the season. With many designers sampling the hot stuff, check out Dior's head to toe tomato enemble, and Marni's pillar box red collection for inspiration.
It's the perfect season to be the Lady in Red. Warning: You may stop traffic!
Off-white is a winter classic and returns in many guises every season. Perfect for winter woolies ( Victoria Beckham chose to swamp her models in oversized knits), and Fendi showcased sophisticated seperates. Just don't spill your hot chocolate!
Blue can be a cold colour, but it is an extremely versatile base and works well with this season's clashing patterns and ruffles.
Prada pioneered the way with eye-popping colbalt, and Erdem designed a dream using midnight blue. You could even find your inner air hostess with a matching two-piece. Or maybe not.
Pastels are not justfor summer! Pale pink, rose and salmon took centre stage on more than one catwalk.
Fashionistas favourite JW Anderson is all about pale shrimp... His leather heavy collection was an ice-cream dream with all the pieces good enough to eat! Simone Rocha's also showcased the pretty side to pink, but with added edge and laser cut details. Even Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen chose a peachy skin-toned hue for a ruffled prom number. It seems anything goes as long as it's larger than life. Perfect for those who like to be cute and cuddly!
I’m delighted to say that black is readily available this season; It takes the form of lace, velvet and leather as fabrics du jour.
You can choose from the 80s "it" girl if you party like St Laurent. Or sample Alexander Wang or Givenchy's slightly intimidating leather looks. All can be taken in moderation too!
