Geometry lesson


Maths has never been one of my strong points, but when it collides with fashion, I somehow manage to work out my style equations. With designers currently reaching dizzy heights with zigzags, stripes and patterns aplenty, it's hard not to get carried away with a print or 10. I'm not talking monochrome stripes and the usual polka dots of the past, but instead swirls, lines and loud prints that play tricks with your eyes in autumnal tones of reds, oranges and navy.

Even jewellers are getting in on the act with shapes that are simple yet eye-catching. Sharp lines and perfect circles are leading accessories into a new genre of jewellery that compliment both day and night dressing.

This trend so obviously leans on the 70s retro vibe, yet also seems modern day so don't be too quick to write it off. Team statement skirts with muted coloured knits or busy tops with a classic denim midi and you'll be on a par with Christopher Kane and Sonia Rykiel's muses. Though my budget won't stretch to these beautifully designed clothes, Marks & Spencer and Debenhams cater just as well without having to spend a fortune on a trend that will come and go as quickly as the British summer.
