Trend of the week: Perfect couples

You can’t buy love but you can buy something lovely, says Annmarie O’Connor.


When it comes to love, some things are worth the risk. Going into the red isn’t one of them.

We may heart the catwalk offerings of Céline and Balenciaga (oh, those delicious dresses!) but the high street has plenty of stylish suitors worth a punt.

The key to a successful sartorial relationship? A fine balance of trends and basics that keep the flames of fashion fanned without putting function on the back burner.


Fall head over heels for a demu kitten heel – the 80’s fashion re that has us breathing a sigh of re Not a girlie girl?

Wear fuchsia with ribald red for a more ncompromising colour combination. Create ample drama with this season’s voluminous sleeves.

Top tip? Keep the lines clean and lean and let the detail do the talking.

Last season’s pompoms are more than just a fashion fling. Expect a renewed romance across sweaters, shoes, bags and accessories.
