Think you can't look chic in winter woollens? The French fashion pack are proving you wrong

The Paris Couture shows are in full swing, and just as breathtaking as the gowns on the runway are the eye-popping ensembles on the streets. Making a case for colour in winter, black is being overshadowed by clashing patterns and vibrant look-at-me outfits, from fuchsia fur to head-to-toe hot pink.

The Europeans have winter dressing down to a fine art and it all hinges on effortlessly executed layers - a ruffled white shirt under black overalls, a leather cami over a blouse, a floaty floral sundress peeking beneath a shearling coat. Add scarf, hat and gloves and voila! your look is complete.
