The 4 London Fashion Week Trends You’ve Got To Get Around

The 4 London Fashion Week Trends You’ve Got To Get Around

London Fashion Week style has a eclectic feel and romantic, understated bravado to it –  outfits are a mix of high, low and flea market finds, all pulled together in a cohesive outfit that transcends the polished luxe of other fashion weeks.  A London girl battles her elements with a layering system that may sometimes seem random but is actually a thought out masterpiece. She’ll manage to seamlessly pair dungarees with a turtleneck, throw on a fuchsia faux fur coat and carry a Birkin picnic basket as a handbag – and she won’t look like a cat lady but rather an It Girl. There are no rules here and London proves that every year. This season, an array of fabulous trends made their début – and they’re as charming as they are stylish.

Forget what you know about wearing a shirt - straight up and down isn’t cutting it this LFW. Instead try an experimental play of angles, asymmetric hems and rule-breaking layering; a fresh status quo for your freshly pressed shirts to master, the effect is too cool to retire back to the norm.

BOMBER-INSPIRED PARKAS

An updated version of the reliable wind-protecting parka is popping up all over fashion week. With a bomberesque twist and a puffy pop of colour, it’s a fun way to maintain your ‘tude (+ core temp). Highly recommended for all bomber addicts - you don’t need to let go just yet.

TIMELESS TAN

A colour that screams class and high fashion, tan basically markets itself by turning any ensemble into a fresh outfit - despite being born in the ‘40s. LFW has been an explosion of tan amongst the usual black, some choosing to layer it upon itself and others making it the glue that brings their outfit together. No matter how you pair it, your look will have a guaranteed polished finish.

BOMB BLAZERS

Blazers are the quintessential working girl staple, and so often we sleep on the trend instead of seeing it as a playful alternative. Think minor embellishments, unique cut outs, flashes of colour and voilà a blazer becomes one of the most exciting things you own.  This particular trend lends itself to a seamless transition from day to night, as it’s perfect for the office and the bar. We can’t think of a better fashion investment.
