The whirlwind that is the autumn/winter ready-to-wear shows is over and it's time to start planning your wardrobe for the upcoming autumn and winter seasons. It's the perfect time to flaunt international styles from the world's most renowned fashion destinations.

Here are some of the biggest trends from the catwalks of New York, Milan, London and Paris.

Long Hemlines

Floor-sweeping hemlines and romantic silhouettes were seen at Chloé in Paris, where full-length skirts in floaty fabrics brought a softness to the collection.

The look had more chutzpah in Milan, where Roberto Cavalli's silky printed skirts covered legs but remained sexy, and at Fausto Puglisi, where they were covered in bright geometric prints.

Necks will be cozy this fall, with polo necks making a big comeback.

Alexander Wang kept things covered up in New York, while Victoria Beckham applied the look to sculpted, sophisticated dresses. DKNY put a school-like twist on things with oversized roll neck sweaters.

Flares are still trending, as proved in London by Topshop Unique and Eudon Choi, where bootcut trousers were mixed with paisley prints for maximum effect.

In Milan, Bottega Veneta showcased a more relaxed version of the shape, but made sure to add plenty of shimmer for good measure.

Flashing the flesh will be another key trend for Autumn/Winter 2015/16, as seen at Saint Laurent in Paris, where leather trousers featured strategic cut-outs and tights were ripped.

Dresses at Mugler were slashed at the hip, while Jacquemus took the look to extreme heights with its revealing designs featuring strategically placed strips of fabric across the torso.
