The new neutrals

For Spring 2007, lots of fashion trends have been thrown up, from 80s neon to futuristic to the new Romantics. But my favourite of all has to be the neutral palates favoured by designers such as Philip Lim of 3.1 Philip Lim and Thomas Maier of Bottega Veneta. For the uninitiated, neutrals refer mainly to colours such as white, light grey, cream/beige, khaki, camel... (you get the idea).

Other collections that featured lots of neutrals include the Badgley Mischka, Thakoon, Derek Lam, Marc Jacobs, Burberry Prorsum and Stella McCartney 2007 collections.

And you don't need a big budget to indulge in these pieces. High street stores such as Massimo Dutti, Zara and French Connection allow you to partake in the neutrals trend without busting the bank account.
