Miu Miu, Dsquared2 and Just Cavalli made mashed-up prints and textures look modern not messy. Ease into the trend by keeping your prints within one colourway.
The flat shoe has been given genteel appeal this season. Swap your chunky loafers for a T-bar or sling-back sandal. For high-end inspiration, take a look at Chloe and Nicholas Kirkwood, on the high street Hobbs and Jaeger.
Sloppy is now chic, so says Stella McCartney and The Row. Winter knits now double up as hand warmers. But remember, go over-long without going oversized.

What’s the easiest way to transform an outfit for the new season? Simply cinch your waist with a thick belt, as seen as Haider Ackermann, House Of Holland and Balmain.
