The hottest trends to look for this season are:

Blue Daze – Blue is the new black this season with every shade from cobalt to navy hitting the runway. Match with white and black for a classic look, and for those daring enough, rock a head to toe blue outfit to stand out from the crown. Get the look with Manning Cartell, Santini and Tony Bianco.

Sports Luxe –  Re-invented with fresh twist for AW14, this season sports luxe will see more prints and striped detailing worked into the trend. Get the look with Lacoste and Tony Bianco.

Printed Matter – The bolder the print the better to help you nail this trend this season. Floral detailing and geometric design put a modern touch on this wardrobe staple. Get the look with Cue and Wayne Cooper.

Gentlemans Club – It’s all about masculine versus feminine with this hot trend. Pair a classic white shirt, man-style fedora and jacket for the perfect outfit. Get the look with Country Road and French Connection.

Wine Down – Ox blood is the winter colour of the season. Found woven into suiting and flirty feminine dresses, this classic colour can be matched with a monochrome palette and pastel pink for something a little unexpected. Get the look with Calibre.

Sugar Coated – Inspired by the feminine silhouettes from the 50’s and 60’s, these classic forms have been re-worked to suit the modern woman of today. Fun florals and pastels are matched to perfection with muted tones for that lady-like style.  Get the look with Ted Baker and Nine West.

Sheer Beauty – This daring trend will ensure you stand out this season. It’s all about layering to help you maintain your modesty! Team sheer shirts and skirts with thick jackets to complete your outfit.  Get the look with sass & bide.
