The autumn collections and leopard print motifs go together like summer and nautical stripes. But, even such a hardy perennial can be made exciting in the right hands. Sexy, sophisticated, cool - there's a reason we can never get enough of the stuff.

Luxe leather is about so much more than biker jackets and it bags - think clean lines and classic tailoring shapes cut from the supplest of skins. Classic black is timeless, but shades of red and fawn are providing fierce competition this season.

Christmas is coming, and with it a slew of soirees and shindigs at which a casual look just won't cut it. Step up your game with feathers, sequins or shimmering silk - you'll be the belle of the ball.
