I’m a huge fan of Zara and their runway inspired pieces.  You can channel your inner Carine Roitfeld for under £200 in the store.

If I had £5,000 to spend on a Balmain jacket I would, but I don’t which is why I appreciate Zara so much.

Balmain is again a huge inspiration for Zara.

We can expect puffy sleeves inspired by Dolce & Gabbana.

Sharp shoulders à la Balmain.

Wool wrap coats inspired by Stella McCartney.

Like it or not over-the-knee boots are coming to the high-street. We saw these in Stella McCartney’s, Rodarte’s, Halston’s and Roberto Cavalli’s Fall 2009 shows.

Remember the advice Natalie Massenet from Net-A-Porter gave me, which was to wear these boots with an oversized sweater or blazer making sure the tops of the boots are not seen. You don’t want to end up looking like Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman”.
