Purple may have been Pantone's colour of the year for 2018, but in all honesty, it's yellow that the fashion crowd has adopted.

Although polka dots do come in other colourways, black-and-white versions win.

Polka dots don't have to look retro. Look to this sportswear twist.

Spots often act as a netural backdrop to vibrant accessories.

Gigantic cuts have been tested out by the bravest ladies this year.

Sometimes all you need is a huge pair of trousers to get in on the look.

Up things up a notch with a tent-like dress or jumpsuit.

Wide-leg trousers are the classic partner to a white shirt.


9. Eighties Redux

Think bold shoulders, visor sunglasses, short hemlines and crystal earrings.

A power blazer is a chic homage to the '80s.

There's always room for one more accessory in an '80s look.

Sharp shoulders, a nipped-in waist and a short hemline: an ultra-retro formula to beat.
