London Fashion Week is coming to a close, and with it, that daily dose of fashion style inspo for your new season wardrobe.
Whilst what the designers are showing on the runway is undoubtedly the main focus of the shows, what happens off the runway is just as exciting. Who is wearing what, straight off the runway? Or what’s the hot new brand everyone is talking about? More importantly, which high street style hero is flying off the shelves?
As we’ve come to expect from LFW, the trench coat and the checked blazer were still very much in (see the trench coat 2.0), but with the London set being all about practicality (it’s often raining after all), it was all about layering. Think oversized puff sleeve trenches over chunky knits, checked blazers over hoodies and tartan macs clashing with bright floral midi dresses.
Despite spring still being a few weeks away, pastels were very much in, with lilac suits, mint blouses and powder pink jumpsuits adding a wash of colour to the streets of London, though that’s not to say there wasn’t room for your usual colour clashes. Kermit green, yellow, red and cobalt blue were worn either head-to-toe or mixed in with subtler hues.
As with anything these days, you have to think about the ‘gram too, and there were plenty of IG appropriate accessories. Sculptural statement earrings by the likes of JW Anderson, Oooak and Anissa Kermiche, PVC, netted and embellished bags by Staud, Danse Lente and Loewe.
As for shoes, while the now cult sock boots still appeared on the FROW, white boots, embellished heels and chunky trainers were giving them a run for their money.
