2. Ballerina bun

The messy ballerina bun was seen on the runways of Diane von Furstenberg and Marchesa and the great news is, this look is quick and easy to create. Pull hair into a tight pony on the top of your head and simply wind the hair around and secure with bobby pins. It's perfect for those busy days when you've no time to wash and blow-dry your hair.

3. Natural nails

Think classic grown up nails for A/W 14. "Soft, round natural nails will be the nail shape for the coming season," predicts nail artist Sophie Harris Greenslade aka The Illustrated Nail. "Nails are steering away from the stiletto and becoming much softer and shorter." The trend colours are, "nudes and rich jewel tones as well as deep inky colours."

4. The new bob

After a summer of braids, the new chic bob is the perfect way to step into the cooler months in style. Shorter hair has been seen on celebs from Cate Blanchett to Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone and Kate Mara. The new bob is a grown out pixie bob and worn slightly longer and closer to the shoulder.

7. 70s glamour

You can count on Matthew Williamson to channel a glamorous make up look. Taking inspiration from Jerry Hall, leading makeup artist Lisa Eldridge broke the rules and teamed strong lips with strong eyes.

8. Dreamy complexion

One of the top trends from the A/W 14 was natural looking makeup or the sporty luxe look. This was seen on the runways from Burberry Prorsum to Roksanda Ilincic and Michael Kors. The luminous look is created by using a mix of clever creamy products. Choose silky foundations and illuminating under eye concealers to create a glowing finish. Highlighters add contouring and definition. Invest in a good daily skin care routine as healthy skin is the key.
