The cover stars

With heatwave season a distant memory, the search for that dream winter cover-up is well and truly on. If you haven't already found the ultimate staple that'll see you through to next spring, you'd best be quick - the fashion pack cherry-pick their cold-weather coat of arms back in balmy July.

Time to get back in gear


It might be years - even decades - since your actual school days, but it's hard to shake that new-term feeling every time September rolls around, isn't it?

Your autumn fashion forecast


The last of the sad, unwanted sale items have been cleared away, the September issues have hit news stands and the first drops of winter coats have landed - on Planet Fashion, autumn is officially here.

Adorn me!


The fastest way to update your wardrobe (no need to spend hours in the fitting room), jewellery can make all the difference to an outfit, and you don't have to spend a fortune, either.

Step up your summer shoe game


There's another heatwave on the way, which is as good an excuse as any to invest in some jazzy new shoes - and what a choice you've got right now.

Heard the buzz?


Did you hear about the swarm of bees that descended on a branch of Topshop a couple of summers ago, trapping customers inside?

Keep it Rio


With the 31st Olympic Games just days away, all eyes are on Rio de Janeiro, but you don't have to travel all the way to Brazil to capture the colourful style of the seaside city.

Millie'ing around


For someone who's just got back from four days (and nights) of partying at Glastonbury, Millie Mackintosh is looking enviably fresh and energetic.

Put on your sunset strip


There wasn't just one highlight hue on the SS16 catwalks, but a beautiful range encompassing the kind of rich, fiery shades only visible as the sun goes down.

Hey, shady lady


A straight-off-the-runway designer dress is something most of us can only dream of owning, but a pair of sunnies from our favourite catwalk brands? Now there's an affordable way to stay on-trend - without saying goodbye to several months' salary.

Water babes


Remember last summer when that Protein World billboard featuring a skinny, toned and tanned model, asking 'Are you beach body ready?', went viral?

Nifty picks for rad dads


Previously overshadowed by the attention-grabbing womenswear events, the men's fashion weeks, which take place in January and June, are going from strength to strength - with more designers showing every season, and garnering more column inches, tweets and celebrity attendees in the process.

Be a fashion frill-seeker


Easily the prettiest component of the 'more is more' mood that characterises SS16 is the return of all things ruffled, from Proenza Schouler and Oscar De La Renta's flamenco layers, to the delicate frills at Lanvin and Alexander McQueen.

Stripe for the picking


Forget florals. Stop with the spots. This season, the only print you need is of the linear variety.

Wedding clashers


When it comes to getting dressed up for a wedding, there are so many 'rules' to follow that most end up being a sea of men in boring grey suits and women in humdrum floral frocks.

Bright and breezy


Been dreaming of casting aside your winter woollens and frolicking bare-legged ever since the spring/summer designer shows, way back in September last year?

Spring's dreamiest denim


As resilient trend-wise as the fabric itself, denim never really goes out of style, and it's put in a particularly strong showing this season.
