If you only inject two major Autumn/Winter 2018 fashion trends into your wardrobe this new season, make them cowboy (boots, easy) and this: a jazzed-up animal print. From big-cat spots to bold tiger stripes, coloured snakeskin and the surprise runway standout – zebra stripes – fashion has gone completely wild for the wild.

Animalia is the new black, as witnessed at Victoria Beckham, Balenciaga, Dolce & Gabbana, Adam Selman, Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, Max Mara, Bottega Veneta and more, Natural is nice but coloured versions are better – this Tom Ford’s wild reg jaguar prints – as is adopting a bold head-to-toe policy. Who dares, wins.
