Top ten trends for the new season

Autumn/winter 2008-09 fashion trends: wide trousers


The arrival of flares this summer was a precursor to the wave of large trousers we're seeing now, but the difference this season is that they're worn short, Eighties style. These also signal the end of skinnies once and for all, which will no doubt be good news for some! Expect to see wide trews in styles from pleated to belted to turned-up.

How to wear them
Steer clear of the "Bozo the clown" look: only wear with heels and fitted tops to give you shape. Go for thick, quality fabric like broadcloth which keeps its shape well.
