The Power of Purple! Yes Even Your Underwear

Regal purple and violet lit up the international catwalks for Autumn/Winter 2010. For those afraid of the bold colour, take your lead from the likes of Christian Dior, Gucci and Marni. Perhaps colour-blocking the tones for a daytime look, while silky satin pieces will set you apart from the crowd in the evening. And of course lingerie need not be forgotten. This trend translates quite easily to your bras and knickers.

Navy: It's the new black according to fashionistas. Seen on AW10/11 catwalks from Aquascutum to Celine, Louis Vuitton and Alexander Wang. To be worn with everything, it's chic, sophisticated, smart and sexy - and it looks great with black too. Seen on catwalks from Aquascutum to Celine, Louis Vuitton and Alexander Wang, there's a way to wear it to suit every taste.

Nothing could ever replace our love affair with black, but we do love a sexy new injection of colour for the Navy could just be it!

Nudes: A modern mix of cream, ivory, and stone make for a sleek and serene look. Chloe's AW10/11 collection predominantly offered in tan and beige, was a Seventies-themed collection that was super chic and all about fabrics of the most supreme quality. At Chanel, the traditional Chanel tweeds looked more sumptuous than ever in brown, encrusted with glacial jewellery. Christian Dior showcased a muted autumnal palette of mulberry, brown, cream and olive green.
