Pernille Teisbaek flew the flag for New Balance, while Fila and classic Adidas Stan Smiths were also popular—try the velcro version for added ease.

Style notes: As per the autumn shows, the humble hoodie is a must-have. Copenhagen's show-goers proved it's probably the most affordable and versatile item you'll buy, wearing theirs with everything from wide-leg jeans to co-ordinating skirts and heels. Red is the shade to be seen in, FYI.

Floral Dresses

Style notes: The floral dress has made a comeback for spring, and it's best when worn head to toe. Offset feminine pussybows or ditsy prints with boyish footwear, or go the whole hog and clash with another floral print.

White Boots

Style notes: Bold boots are a key trend for autumn, and bright white was the look en vogue for the Copenhagen shows. Laurence Decade's elongated ankle boots were having a moment, but a pair of kitten heels is a match made in heaven for a minidress.
