Sexy, pretty, edgy – Glossy Punk is one of the coolest and easiest trends to work this A/W. It’s a simple look with a high fashion feel. Edgy but ultra chic. Leather, studs, bad girl braids, smokey eyes and bright glossy lips. It’s slimming, adds edge and instant cool – and looks fantastic in the harder Winter light.
Rock chick is nothing new but this trend combines couture with the casual. The result is sleek, polished rebel. Think Cara D on the runway. Perfectly groomed but born to be wild!!!

Tartan. It’s the coolest fabric of the season. It’s both ladylike and rock chick and always looks smart. Rita Ora looks amazing in these high waisted trousers, Cheryl Cole does edgy chic in a glam mini and mega celeb of the moment – Scottish soul singer Tallia Storm – rocks the ultimate in pretty punk. Tartan is so hip that beyond cool superstar Pharrell Williams and his bride Helen Lasichanh actually got married in it this Autumn. It gets you in the Christmas spirit too – bring it on!

Lingerie chic is back! Last seen in the early noughties peeking out underneath a sleek satin trouser suit jacket – the 2013 version is full on glamour. Opulent, elegant, indulgence. This is all out luxe!
The runways were full of lace adorned numbers for A/W. We LOVE the Louis Vuitton dress recently worn by Victoria Beckham on the front cover of Vogue.
