Having had a successful run last year, pleats are back for SS19 but this time they're a whole lot more intricate. Tighter than before, the micro pleat provides maximum impact as it generates not only more movement but also a more fluctuating silhouette as it expands and contracts.

Bold shoulders are no new thing, but rather than padded, boxy numbers, next season's take is a whole lot puffier. Often gathered at the shoulder with pleats of elastic, they work particularly well with square necklines on feminine dresses. Here's hoping the weather allows us to forgo a jacket, or that volume could provide a stumbling block.

Have sequins ever *not* been on trend? Perhaps not, but they were so prevalent at this month's shows that we can't ignore them. Offered up in endless incarnations, opt for a more gently beaded style - like Ashish's mint green jumpsuit - for a friend's birthday dinner, before swapping into blindingly glitzy Halpern-like number for your own.
