We've been at the shows, backstage and generally soaking up everything we could from London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2014.

So here are the top ten trends from the LFW.

A lazy girl's guide to the latest trends, if you will. Ready to soak up the need-to-know details?

1. Blue

From electric blue at Roksanda Ilincic to the hoards of girls in navy at Topshop Unique. Blue is the hue of next season. Navy has been having its day in the sun for some time now, and people are still loving it.

Michael Van Der Ham and Whistles also used the melancholic shade with a dove grey, duck egg version appearing across their collections.

2. Organza and sheer fabrics

Sheer has been a thing for a while now, and it's sticking around. This time it has appeared in organza style fabrics with pretty detailing like at Topshop Unique, Burberry and Erdem. It's lost some of the harshness of previous seasons.

3. Bomber jackets

With it being the Autumn/Winter shows, we were obviously keeping our eye on the coats and one shape we noticed again and again was the bomber. Hipsters rejoice, Giles, House of Holland and Jonathan Saunders have all the shape in their arsenal.

4. Texture

Another winter favourite is texture. This time instead of simple wool or tweed, a lot of designers amped it up a bit with some serious fluff. There were huggably soft coats at Burberry and felt crop tops at Felder Felder. And Christoper Kane played around with texture as he always does; bin-liner style plastic next to faux fur? Of course.

5. Embellishment

Along with the pretty sheer fabrics came a lot of embellishment, be it beading, sequins or embroidery. The king of such things, Erdem, didn't disappoint, while Topshop Unique added theirs to sweatshirts. Michael van der Ham and Ashish were unsurprisingly also involved.

6. Unstructured shapes

Whether it's coats, dresses, or jumpers, the dominating shape is still very slouchy. Dropped shoulders were still making their way round the catwalks. From Giles' shapeless shifts to Issa's oversized coats, curvy hourglass figures may want to give this trend a miss.

7. Oriental prints

There was a distinctly oriental feel to a lot of the prints across LFW these past few days. From Giles to Peter Pilotto, and Michael van der Ham to Erdem, fabrics had quite a Chinese and Japanese hint to them.

8. Animal skins

For the luxury Autumn/Winter vibe, people need look no further than Tom Ford and Felder Felder's animal skin leathers. We're expecting to see more of this in Milan.

9. Orange coats

We love orange! And in winter we also love coats. The two combined to perfection at Preen, House of Holland and Antipodium.

10. Geometric prints

Whether it was the Andean prints on the Burberry models' monogrammed blanket ponchos (jealous!) or the primary colour blocks all over Roksanda Ilincic's collection - there were geo prints all over.
