Although it's a season ahead, designers have been revealing what we'll be wearing come autumn-winter 2016-17 in the latest round-up of fashion weeks around the globe.
It may seem a long way off when we're still experiencing the depths of winter 2015-16, but it's well worth staying in tune with the trends that will take you from one season to the next. This is where investment buys come in. We've been saluting several top designers, thanking them particularly for the large amount of crossover from their current collection to their new collection. It's well worth making clever and well thought out purchases that will stand the test of time or at least last a few more months than you had originally expected.
So, before you hit the shops, make sure you've done your homework and know which trends will stay and which will go. You'll be thanking me come September, as will your bank manager!
