Playing with layers

If there's one thing the bloggers, vloggers and other peacocks that parade outside fashion week venues do well, it's layering.

Boost your fashion fitness


If your Yuletide featured more excess (of the booze and snooze varieties) than exercise, getting back to peak fitness - or, at least, shaking off the seasonal slump - is no doubt top of your New Year resolutions list.

Rise and shine for 2016


Every year, Dulux reveals its chromatic forecast for the coming year, selecting one shade it predicts will reign above all others.

Upgrade your updo


Free-flowing, poker-straight hair is often the norm on the catwalks, but AW15 saw designers embracing hair accessories and elaborate styles in a big way.

Disco inferno


Your inspiration for the part y season this year? A glitterball. Specifically from an Eighties dance floor.

Sartorial Santa!


When it comes to Christmas shopping, clothing can be a tricky proposition.

Get a feel for festive fashion

Watch it!


While our mobile phones are now smart enough to do it automatically, come October 25, we'll still have to remember to wind all our analogue timepieces back an hour, in line with Greenwich Mean Time.

Fashion fast-forward

It's likely to be your biggest splurge of the season, so wouldn't it be great to have lots of time to thoroughly peruse all the options before deciding on a winning winter coat?

Top trends for fashionable fellas


Now rivalling the lady-centric fashion weeks in length, the sixth biannual edition of London Collections: Men AW15 spanned four days back in June (one more than the previous round), which meant more shows and more clothes - and designers didn't disappoint.

Everything is autumn!


After spring's crisp utilitarian feel and summer's Seventies love affair, fashion takes a turn into darker territory for autumn - with a couple of notable exceptions.

Transitional treasures


Good old British weather poses many a sartorial problem at the best of times, but none more so than that pesky end of summer/not quite autumn period.
