A-line skirts are a great option for balancing your bust with your hips. They can do wonders for Pear, Diamond, Inverted Triangle and Straight body shapes. For Pear and Diamond body types, the A-line skirt balances the widest part of your hip without adding more volume. For Inverted Triangle and Straight body shapes, it can add just a bit of volume to create a waist.
It’s a great must-have for every closet! And it's emerald... the color of the year :)
Everyday A-line skirt from Boden, £45 ; Notting Hill Knit from Boden, £69 ; Dizzy Weave Satchel from Guess, £185 ; Glitter Ballerina from Graceland, £12.99 ; Gemstone encrusted leather bracelet from Bonprix, £16.99

Prints and Graphic Lines
Autumn/Winter 2013 will be all about prints and graphic lines. Floral prints are becoming a thing of the past, and prints are now more African inspired. Some of the prints that walked the runway were actually pretty wild (in a good way). We love them!
|Geometric lines were all over LFW and they are stunning|

We saw lots of collections inspired by the monochrome mix. We love the combination between black and white. It provides a great contrast and this can be a really easy combination to pull off.
Trending colors: Red, Gold / Yellow, Blue, Green
Red, Gold or Yellow, Blue and Green will surely pop out of the catwalk straight to the streets. We saw some awesome combinations and splash of colors. Autumn Winter 2013 will surely be a more colorful season with these vibrant colors. These also look great in accessories, when just wearing a monochrome look.
Super long length skirts and dresses
Skirts and dresses have gained a new stylish length. We already knew mini, midi and long skirts… but now, here are the fashionable new super long skirts and dresses. Super long because they’re way longer than the traditional long skirts and they can practically “kiss” the floor. We’re totally embracing this and can’t wait to see this on the streets.

London fashion week (LFW) is one of the highest-profile fashion events in the world, being among the ‘big four’ international catwalk influencers (the others being New York, Paris and Milan). You can read part one of our London Fashion week preview over at weheartcolourful.com.
More and more high-street brands have to staging catwalk shows in recent years - this year's London fashion week will see River Island make its debut with its Rihanna collaboration, while upmarket high-street chain Whistles will host a salon show.
Meanwhile H&M, which has previously hosted fashion events with the likes of Versace, is preparing to make its Paris fashion week debut with a show at the Musée Rodin in a couple of weeks' time.
Here in the UK, Topshop's label, Unique, has shown at London fashion week for more than ten years, while American label J Crew has enjoyed huge success at New York fashion week, taking part the shows there for the fourth time next Tuesday.
The fusion of masculine and feminine aesthetics will be a strong theme at this season's London fashion week. The strength and effectiveness of this fashion phenomenon will lie wholly in the subtleties.
