The jewel tone trend passed me by last year, but this season I appear to have developed an obsession for berry reds. It started with a little linger on dark red pages as I thumbed the fashion mags or a pause as I passed the new in section delightfully punctuated with berry tones at H&M, but today I found myself actually typing 'berry', 'wine red' and 'cherry' into the search bars of various online fashion stores in my pursuit for a new season wardrobe.

Tipped to be the new black (that said, berry looks amazing with black), berry is the must-have colour of the season. I'm actually pretty shocked I missed it last time. Worn with monochrome for a super chic and super smart work wardrobe, gold accessories for an uber glam evening look and denim or black for a more casual daytime take, berry or dark red is versatile as well as on-trend.

In the selection below chosen my favourite berry coloured fashion picks to take you straight through to the next season. Basically, I've published my shopping list.
