The 10 standout styles from the FW15 runway shows that you need to know

If there was one unifying theme from the fall/winter 2015 shows, it's confidence. Despite global uncertainties such as the Greek debt crisis, the UK election, and why Beyoncé chose to wear that see-through Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci dress to the Met Gala, take heart in the fact that you can throw on these key FW15 trends and face the world with aplomb. Here, we present our favourite endorphin-inducing looks. 

1. Carwash Pleats
