Trend Alert: Fur and skins

Fur and skins made a massive appearance on many A/W 2012 runways. Whether you invest in the real thing or faux fur one item is enough for your entire look.

Trend-o-meter

Hands on Long leather gloves with bejewelled cuffs worn over them have us yearning for cold winters. Good thing it’s holiday season.

Yellow gold 
You can forget about shiny, blingy yellow gold. We’re all about subtle, muted rose gold or aged silver.

Hair fix Having a bad hair day? Take inspiration from Rodarte and stick it up in a messy bun with an intricate hair comb to frame your face.

Rihanna designs The singer stepped out wearing one of her designs for River Island recently but we were disappointed with the ill-fitting jumpsuit. Her full collection will be unveiled in February.

Country chic 
The plaid-on-plaid trend (seen here at Daks A/W 2012) epitomises what we want to look like this winter.
