The statement shirt made the big-time last season and its reign will continue though autumn/winter 2017. As ideal for the office as it is for evening drinks, no wardrobe is complete without one. Consider puff sleeves, belted waists, extra long sleeves and detailed cuffs.

The beret is back, courtesy of Dior, who offered leather styles, and Gucci, whose red felt versions played up to its eclectic signature. Rihanna, Winnie Harlow, Clemence Poesy and Adwoa Aboah have all been seen in them over the past few months. Pull yours firmly over your head rather than at a jaunty angle - no one wants to look like a French parody.

Embrace your inner English eccentric because Isabel Marant, Stella McCartney and Balenciaga all revived heritage checks this season. To avoid looking like an aging member of the royal family, style yours with denim - this works for outerwear as much as it does tweed blouses. Wear wide-leg plaid trousers or a tweed mini skirt with a simple white T-shirt.

Shades of red prevailed on the autumn/winter 17 catwalks, so treat yourself to Zara's crimson jacquard midi dress - a great day-to-night option - and team with a pair of ankle boots.

Whether you go wide-leg or slim-cut, the suit is big news this season. This isn't an homage to the 80s though - keep yours nipped in at the waist for a more flattering silhouette.

If you still haven't invested in a pair of kitten heels, now's the time to do so. Comfortable and chic, pair yours with denim, midi-skirts or culottes.

If you're going to invest in a bag this season, make sure it's round. Mulberry, Chloe, Roksanda Ilincic and Jerome Dreyfuss all opted for this graphic, bold style this season.

The antidote to bodycon and skinny jeans, this season's new silhouette is voluminous. The wide-leg trouser is key here, and, contrary to popular belief, you don't need to be tall and willowy to wear it. Just make sure that whatever top you're wearing is fitted and steer clear of chunky fabrics. High-waisted styles are the most flattering.
