And who better to offer next season’s trends than the women who make looking stylish their 9-5? Here, they discuss the pieces they'll be leaving behind to mark a fresh new year of fashion.

“It’s all about retiring the all-day active wear. Perfect for the gym but that's where it starts and ends in 2016.”
“Swap the trainers for a Celine slide, and the tights for denim or leather and a plain white tee and you have an equally as comfortable look, that is perfectly chic.”

“I love marble, but when you put a marble print on everything, it’s time to say goodbye.”

“The crop top. We'll be showing less skin in 2016 and our new focus is the blouse, in all shapes and sizes -- high necks, bell sleeves and ruffles.
“Swap ripped boyfriend jeans for cleaner silhouettes -- wide leg cuts, flares and straight leg trousers.”

“'Novelty' clothing and accessories. These were so popular on the fashion circuit and street style photographers went crazy for them. They are far too kitschy and the over the top inspiration became far too literal. Trends aren't meant to last forever and thank god this one won’t!”
“Flash tattoos. They were cute at the first few festivals and then somehow made their way into some girls’ everyday wear but now they are well and truly overdone. Replace with some stunning jewellery instead this year.”

“I think we can truly bid the Peplum Skirt adieu. It's had a great run but we have witnessed nearly two decades of the peplum reinvention -- maybe we should re-visit it again in 2030s.”
