From diaphanous sheaths at Dries Van Noten, to clear plastic macs from Chanel, this look is here to stay. But fear not, you need go only as bare as you dare and treat see-through fabrics as styling opportunities. Don a clear leaf-print dress, as at Burberry, but wear a t-shirt and shorts underneath.

See? Not so bad after all.
Fashion’s desire for transforming wardrobe staples into items of pure magnificence continues. This year, it’s the turn of the trench coat, originally developed as an alternative to the heavy coats during the First World War, this easy to wear garment is a must for every wardrobe.
Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen offered a trench elegantly threaded with black-rose embroidery. But it was Martin Margiela who stole this particular style: dividing trenches with feathers, marrying them with mirrored squares and binding them at the waist with kimono belts.
Key Styling Tip: Belt up – wrap you trench around you and style with a beautiful belt, to give it added chic.
