A modern, layering idea for days you want to elevate your outfit - add definition to structural staples with a dramatic, thick waist belt or sash for added flair and style. A cousin to the much-loved corset styles and a soon-to-be wardrobe essential for many - the key to making a thick waist belt look good is all about proportions. The longer your belt, the lower your outfit ends.

Black is loved all year round, but we all know that it shines the brightest every Fall/Winter season. This year, we saw this esteemed colour elevated through romantic elements of delicate lace, thoughtful fabrication and bold silhouettes. Black has never been boring (we know most of us can agree), but the collections this year have taken its potential to new heights; presenting us with a sensual allure fit for the confident woman.

Featuring rounded shoulders and more generous cuts, we saw plenty of relaxed, body-skimming silhouettes walk down the runways this season. They are a style that will never go out of trend, and we have all grown to love and appreciate them more than we ever did for virtual and intimate gatherings.

The statement thigh-grazing, over-the-knee boot trend has always been a crowd favourite and is one that has never showed signs of slowing down. They may not look like the easiest kicks to don, but they really aren't that difficult to style and go with more outfits that you think. Over jeans, under coats or just with any mini-length outfit, the possibilities are endless if you're just bold enough to do it.
