As the last of the sale's offerings make their way to the stock rooms, the new juicy collections start to emerge and I for one am excited by what this season has to offer.
The ruffles, bows, pleats and sequins we have been used to will be around for a while longer,only larger and more dramatic, and a single bare shoulder, eighties style, replaces the full off the shoulder look we have seen of late.
The good old military look remains in favour, with army coats adorned with gold buttons and embellishments. The trench will prove popular this season with luxurious options in coloured leather and suede. Make sure to stock up on jumbo sized earrings, the bigger the better!

One shocker I didn't think I would see again in his lifetime, is the ski pant. It's back with a vengeance! Who can remember the constant battle to keep those pesky straps firmly under foot? Slimming though, I give them that :)
