We took a look at some of the hot trends coming out of Austrailia's and the U.K.'s Fashion Week, with top designers highlighting some trends you'll want to pitch to clients. Here are just a few:
It's the year of the neck. Fashion trend-watchers say that the neck s where it's at and designers will be pushing accessories -- from scarves to chokers, to buttoned-up collars and turtlenecks -- to highlight a body part every wearer can feel good about dressing up.
Bullsblood. Liver. Maroon. Imagine the deep red the leaves turn in October, and that's the hot color for the season. Called bullsblood (and liver and maroon), you'll see this bold, rich color in everything from shirts to dresses to pants to accesories.
Faux fur and shearling. It's back again -- wearers can't get enough of the warm faux materails that dress up all kinds of outerwear. The trend's so hot, it continues into the spring in the form of light fluffy feathers.

It’s cool not to be cool, and it’s cool not to try too hard. Beanie brands like Carhatt once challenged the anti-fashion with their laidback designs, but now fashion people are looking for a new challenge.
