Cementing the suggestion that comfort is key, several big brands looked to quilting for their collections. After a month on the road - and on those painfully uncomfortable fashion show benches - the idea of padded troos à la Lacoste is a very appealing one right now.Spotted at: Lacoste (left), Chanel (centre) and Mary Katrantzou (right)

If you've been stuffing your tote full of spare jumpers, lip balms, receipts and unused notebooks (inspo could strike at any time, amirite?), then it's time to cut the clutter. By Autumn/Winter 2018 you're allowed your credit card and perhaps one receipt - folded twice - because your new handbag will be the size of a minature purse. If that makes you break out in a cold sweat then look to Céline, who have come up with the answer via a rope belt trailing several mini bags off of it.Spotted at: Giambattista Valli (left), Céline (centre), Jacquemas (right), Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Altuzarra

While it may not be a groundbreaking concept, animal print was noticeably popular across all four fashion weeks for AW18. Whether it was Victoria Beckham's leopard-print trench coat, Givenchy's white tiger-print sweatshirt or Isabel Marant's snake-print trousers - we're here for it all. Perhaps together?!Spotted at: Isabel Marant (left), Givenchy (centre), Victoria Beckham (right), Max Mara, Céline and Tom Ford

The humble cowboy boot was one of the biggest footwear trends to storm this month's catwalks. Reappearing in a number of different guises, we saw it bejewelled to the max at D&G (who else), while Isabel Marant's take was a whole lot simpler and more everyday. We'd suggest snapping one up from each end of the extra-spectrum to cover all bases.Spotted at: Dolce & Gabbana (left), Emporio Armani (centre), Isabel Marant (right) and Fendi

Hoods, hats, turbans and hijabs all appeared on a number of designer catwalks this season... to mixed response. Some saw the use of the latter religious headwear to be tone-deaf cultural appropriation, while others celebrated it for increasing visibility of groups often underrepresented in mainstream fashion.Spotted at: Preen (left), Vivienne Westwood (centre), Maison Margiela (right), Dior, Gucci, Alexander Wang, Versace and Calvin Klein

Such is the impact of a sequinned dress, Saint Laurent's Anthony Vaccarello dedicated an entire half of his AW18 collection to variations of the showstopper. Whether you opt for a fun mini or full-length drama, make sure to keep your beauty look minimal so as not to venture into overkill territory.Spotted at: Saint Laurent (left), Elie Saab (centre) and Temperley London (right)

Trousers, heels, coats, jumpsuits, gloves... you name it, we want it glossy. Lacquered fabrics are having a moment right now, and it's shinier than ever for next season. Paired with other tactile materials, such as a cable-knit sweatshirt, tweed jacket or faux fur shoe, they pack a serious punch.Spotted at: Eudon Choi (left), Chanel (centre) and Simone Rocha (right)

While last season's jewellery repertoire comprised of brightly-coloured pom-pom ear adornments, for AW18, things get a whole lot more extra. And - we hasten to add - a whole lot heavier. But you have a whole summer to gradually train your lobes with semi-heavy earrings in preparation for a winter full of this gloriousness.Spotted at: Tom Ford (left), Saint Laurent (centre), Zadig & Voltaire (right), Balenciaga and Dolce & Gabbana

Think Clueless but cooler. For autumn/winter 2018, the catwalks were awash with the geometrical print across every kind of item. And don't be afraid to double up - both Stella and Rochas showcased full two-piece outfits cut from the same cloth and the entire front row swooned.Spotted at: Rochas (left), Balenciaga (centre), Stella McCartnet (right), Erdem, Calvin Klein, Versace and Lacoste
