Bear in mind

Keyhole cut-outs were trending at New York Fashion Week, but in London, the party's in the back. Designers elevated their covered-up pieces with cut-out back details in different shapes and sizes, proving that when it comes to showing skin, less-is-more is the chicest way to go.

Pink and red may not be the top combo when it comes to colour pairings, but designers are making a strong case for it with an array of colour-blocked looks that strike the right chord. If you're up for it, throw in a third shade in the mix à la Lupe Gajardo.

From full-leather pantsuits to long coats, 20 years on, The Matrix continues to influence the AW21 runways, and we're all for it. These looks let you channel your inner Neo, Trinity, and Morpheus with a modern twist.

No gloves? No problem. This season, streetwear-favourite elongated sleeves are not only the trend for those whose hands are forever cold—the slouchy silhouette is perfect for lazy days at home too. Before you comment on its impracticality, this season's offerings feature added slits and ruched details that are functional for everyday wear.

Cobalt blue has always been one of the most well-loved colours in the fashion world, and this season, it's also the top hue to note. Instead of wearing the bright shade as it is, take inspo from the runways by juxtaposing it with other bold colours (orange and neon green are great picks, IMO).

Cut-outs are great, but there's nothing like sheer layers to truly spice things up. A slew of designers embraced the see-through trend tastefully by opting for all-black pieces that give the looks a sophisticated finish.
