Autumn/Winter is always a great season for fashion and 2014 looks set to follow in the same vein if the latest big brand catwalk shows are anything to go by.

High street stores will receive their first Autumn/Winter clothes deliveries next month so here is our look ahead to what you can expect to be the hottest style looks of Autumn/Winter 2014.

60s Inspired looks with a modern twist

The Autumn/Winter shows by some of the world's biggest fashion labels including Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Valentino featured signature 60's inspired looks.

The show at Louis Vuitton featured structured A-line shifts, knee-high shiny leather boots and luxurious polo necks, while Gucci displayed brown leather A-lines paired with ruffled leather shirts.

Valentino gave us there own play on the 60s with bright printed tunics.

Other 60s inspired trends that came out of all the shows were pointed 60s flats and mini boxy handbags.

 

Say goodbye to boring prints

During the Autumn/Winter shows we have seen designers whose sartorial signature style usually features prints move on to something new, and much more exciting. Replacing the print is a embellishing technique used to create jewelled creations such as those seen in the knits of Peter Pilotto and the colourful layered over prints work seen at Matthew Williamson.

 

Cloaks and Capes

One of the great things about the Autumn/ Winter season is wrapping up against the cold British weather. A key look at the seasons catwalk shows was the cloak and cape style cover-up.  Alexander McQueen, Daks, Valentino, Peter Pilotto, Saint Laurent and all favoured this look.

Layered, statement scarves also featured heavily in many of shows and they took on the feeling of a garment in their own right.

 

A word on colour

Pink has reigned as the dominant colour in recent season but this season takes a new direction with blues the new favourite shade of designers.

Everything from cobalts, teals, electric blues and anything in between was on show, so there was more than a hint on what we will be seeing on the high street by the time Autumn arrives.
