Winter colours 'muted'
Winter looks set to be a subdued affair when it comes to the colour palette, if the L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival is anything to go by.

The Sydney Morning Herald explains that more than 60 catwalk collections were displayed at the event and that the cooler months look to be a predominantly black season with the occasional smattering of colours, including pumpkin, purple, magenta and deep pink.

Layers also look to be in vogue, with combinations of tights, bottoms, knits and blouses being worn by a range of models.

The central item in nearly every collection was a coat, the publication notes, adding: "A variety of sweet and shapely frock coats, often with shawl collars, self belts and generously gathered near-rara skirts, were the bull's-eye components for winter's key layered looks."

Meanwhile, the Independent recently reported that black is very much back, with the femme fatale look making a return to the Milan catwalk last week, featuring black opaque legwear and tailored dresses.
