As London prepares for Fashion Week, we take a look at the hectic flood of high fashion that has been washing over from the West-Coast. New York Fashion Week is a modern and achingly chic collection of  Fashion’s most prominent designers, with the biggest names bringing you their versions of what your wardrobe should look like come Autumn.

Below are our picks of some of the best trends coming your way, something to look forward to even with this bleak weather still over our heads… 

SHADES OF GREY

Grey doesn’t have to be dull; this season designers have transformed this ‘safe’ colour into the height of cool using texture and layers to create depth to your look without having to stray away from the neutral colour palette. Pleats at Marc by Marc Jacobs and lace at DKNY take this shade to its new modern potential looking striking even with simple black accessories.

A SHOCK OF SCARLET

The luxe colour of the season, make sure this reflects in your wardrobe by September. The gorgeous deep red has been used in day wear as heavy midi skirts at Karen Walker teamed with casual printed tops and chunky loafers, right to the high-glamour side of the fashion spectrum at Honor with its stunning floor length gowns with gathered chiffons draping beautifully down the body. Go all out with a vintage scarlet lip to reflect the trend with any outfit.

PRETTY IN PLAID

Take your tartan to another level this season, with block colours and alternative fabrics. The traditional wool check  was out to play at Tommy Hilfiger with adorable oversized coats teamed with bobble hats, and the trend was reflected onto lightweight sheer fabrics balanced with layers of heavy wool pieces at Vera Wang.

METALLIC SHINE

As always, Autumn/Winter is the most glamorous season, and this is reflected with a sudden increase of sparkle on the catwalk. Metallic beading and embellishment is key for eveningwear, and in understated neutral tones this look can be worn for any occasion you need to attend that season. Narciso Rodriguez keeps with the grey trend and embellishes simple shift dresses with unusual sleek metallic panels, and 3.1 Phillip Lim elaborates further with block coloured beading.

THOSE BABY BLUES

Dare we say it, but the baby pink coat is out. Next season, the pastel love shifts towards the delicate baby blue colour featured in outerwear at Derek Lam and Wes Gordan. Wear easily with other shades (mustard and oxblood being the key colours it was seen paired with on the catwalks), or keep it neutral with monochrome.
