The fall/winter 2017 shopping list
01 CORDUROY REVIVAL
Consider corduroy next time you're shopping for your work suits. For more eclectic styles, look to Prada, while Lemaire and Sportmax offer plenty of pared-down options.

02 THE QUIRKY CARDI
Granny cardigans get a new lease of life with embellishments and Victorian-inspired sleeves at Miu Miu.
03 WHAT A WAIST!
It was a 90s phenomenon but the waist pouch is showing some serious staying power thanks to fashion-forward reinterpretations from Gucci.
04 DAPPER IN VELVET
If there's a suit to splurge on this season, it's velvet - look to Hermès and Berluti for great cuts.
05 RETRO BAGS
Gucci's Alessandro Michele took on the archival Gucci print when he became creative director in 2015 and has since given that vintage vibe a much-needed buzz.
06 GOOD LUCK CHARMS
Talisman-inspired necklaces remind us to spread good energy and ward off the bad ones.
07 HAT TO HAVE
Summer may have come and gone but this oversized hat from Loewe is just what you need for gloomy winter travel - a little bit of fun!
08 SHELLING OUT
If there's anyone who can bring back an age-old trend and make it legit again, it's definitely Miuccia Prada. Mark our words - next season is bound to be awash with more interpretations of pretty sea- shells.
09 WALL STREET BLAZERS
In the 80s, most double-breasted blazers came stuffed with shoulder pads. Now, double-breasted is making a big comeback this Fall, but without the excess bulk. Make sure yours is soft and unstructured, and definitely sans shoulder pads
10 SLEEVE APPEAL
Since his debut last season, Anthony Vaccarello seems to have shown a fetish with sleeves. This Fall, he took this design element to the next level with detachable versions. Those looking to try out this trend in a more subtle fashion can consider the contrasting sleeve jacket from Ermenegildo Zegna or a deconstructed sweater version at Calvin Klein.
11 THE LUXE HOODIE
The absence of trainers on the Céline runway this Fall is Phoebe Philo's way of telling everyone she's moved on from done-to-death athleisure. Instead (like the revolutionary designer she is), Philo subtly works her way around the sportswear trend by way of a scarf rendered in the softest lambskin which can double as a hoodie.
12 ALL ABOUT DENIM
When a mega luxury brand like Dior shows more than half its looks in denim, you know it's going to be a big hit this season. Our tip? Don't do it half-heartedly - embrace the trend and style yourself in head-to-toe denim.
13 COVER UP
Ditch the heavy winter overcoat this season and consider draping yourself with these oversized scarves and huge blankets instead.
14 BEST BUY BOOTS
This cold weather footwear will always make an appearance on the Fall runways. We pick out the key boots you should invest in.
15 BAGGY FLAIR
Forget about squeezing into slim-fit and skinny styles. Ease yourself into a pair of mid-rise, wide trousers as comfort becomes fashionable this season.
16 FEATHERS AND FLUFF
If it's going to be a glamorous evening, go all the way with feathers. But if you have an avian allergy or just like your feathers in small doses, we recommend that you start from the bottom, as in shoes. First stop? Prada, of course.
17 CHRISTMAS SWEATERS
Fair-isle inspired sweaters tend to bring back memories retro TV Christmas specials. Naturally, it can look pretty dated, but not if you style it with a dressy bottom like a cut-out skirt as seen at Loewe or a pair of on-trend velvet trousers.
18 SHEARLING SHOWSTOPPERS
From collars to coats, shearling makes a akey presence particularly at Coach and Saint Laurent.
19 MICRO MINI PURSES
How tiny can a bag get? So tiny you can even wear it as a necklace. Don't try stuffing your iPhone inside, though.
20 RINGS GALORE
One is never enough. Go on and stack em'.
21 CHIC CHECKS
This season's checks take on a more traditional appeal but with a modern approach. Case in point: A classic plaid trench with plastic overlay from Calvin Klein.
22 PRIM AND PROPER BAGS
Juxtapose fall's plush textures and intricate embroidered pieces with these minimalist structured totes.
