The new fashion season is officially upon us, and for anyone who loves fashion as much as we do, we've got your Fall/Winter shopping list covered.
From striking scarf-inspired prints to sleekly tailored menswear-inspired silhouettes and iridescent metallics to shine brightly for the gods. Whether you're planning your next big outfit purchase or looking for fashion inspo, keep scrolling to see the key trends to have on your radar, pronto.
1. WILD LIFE
Leopards, zebras, tigers — the boldest animal prints were all over the Fall/Winter runways. Seen at Tom Ford, Bottega Veneta and more, it is undeniably one of the season’s biggest trends.
2. LOGO MANIA
It's here to stay! Versace, Gucci and Prada all made compelling cases for wearing your favourite brand on your chest, sleeve or back.
3. FOLK TALES
Think of autumn’s folk moment as a natural step forward from the prairie trend that dominated the Spring/Summer season. For Fall, the look is just as bohemian, but in a richer palette and slimmer silhouette.
4. HELL FOR LEATHER
The leather dress appeared everywhere from Loewe to Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen in an assortment of ice-cream and candy-box colours.
5. SHIMMER AND SHINE
After a year of sequins, bling and glitter, don’t expect shine to disappear anytime soon. The big update for Fall/Winter: Metallic foil-like texture as seen at Balmain, Koché and more.
6. SCARF DRESSING
If you’re looking for a one-stop route to polish, the scarf dress, created from a collage of graphic silks, is the piece to buy this year. Fall/Winter offers plenty of good ones to choose from, starting with hot emerging names Marine Serre and Richard Quinn.

7. MAN ENOUGH
If you're looking for longevity, look no further than the season's menswear-inspired tailoring in banker-worthy palette of charcoal, slate, black and white. Louis Vuitton, Dries Van Noten and Givenchy lead the way.
8. NEON SPARKS
A surefire way to stand out from the crowd. Take your cue from the vibrant hot-pink panelled coat from Marni, or the electric-green fringing at Prada.
9. FLEUR DE FASHION
Fashion just got girlie, thanks to sheer bright florals with a capital F. Match with aviator sunglasses, toyboyish hats and stomper boots.

10. TEDDY COATS
Outerwear was big, literally and figuratively, from massive padded anoraks to oversized fur coats. In terms of the latter, you’ll want it faux and in chunky, tactile textures.
