Karl Lagerfeld says it's very important to dress for your shape.

The CHANEL designer thinks one of the biggest fashion mistakes people make is buying clothes that don't flatter their figure or fit properly.

He advised: "Buy what you know works for your body and only buy something if it fits well."

Karl also stress the importance of keeping things simple as it always gives a stylish and sophisticated look, as well as keeping make-up to a minimal.

He said: "Never underestimate the power of a simple T-shirt, jeans and a jacket. It always looks very chic.

"Lots of women look great with no make-up on, so if you have good skin, keep it bare."

As if the coming seasons, Karl said it's vital to embrace colour, because dull shades will soon return.

He said: "You can't avoid all the colour and the brights out there. Give it a go. By next autumn/winter we will all be wearing black and grey again because everyone will be fed up of the colour and print!
