Top ten trends for the new season

Autumn/winter 2008-09 fashion trends: orange


After purple, the other big colour for winter is orange, as seen at Ralph Lauren and Nina Ricci. Like purple, orange is showing up in various shades from reddy orange and apricot to copper. It's going to be a big feature on accessories as well as clothes including coats and macs, and we'll be seeing it in materials from silk and wool to synthetics.

How to wear it
Don't put it with black on any day other than Hallowe'en, but wear it with neutrals like khaki, brown and grey. Orange dresses and sweaters look fab, but just make sure you put on plenty of blusher as it they can make you look washed out.
