Big bows are a big rage this season, but while we pay attention to bows and knots as a key element, we shouldn't miss out the outfits where they are subtle incorporated.

4. Coordinated Ensembles
Donning one colour or print head to toe had started being seen as tacky & mix and match was the new approach everyone followed. But gone are those days where mixing and matching is seen as trendy, colour block ensembles are fashion's new favourite. From coordinated pant suits, to monotone jumpsuits vibrant coordinated ensembles reigned supreme on the streets and the runway. The no-fuss nature of these ensembles and the way the silhouette adapts to any aesthetic is probably the biggest selling point.
