LFW Street Style
It’s that time of year again when the streets of London look more like a runway (we’re talking the fashion kind) rather than a thorough way. As always, the style action wasn’t just inside the show spaces. Celebrities, models, editors, and influencers took street style to another new level. We’re breaking down the top trends that you’ll want to wear yourself.
Mad for Plaid
Plaid trousers, jackets, coats and dresses dominated the streets of London Fashion Week. Even caps and bags were given an update with the pattern. Whether in bold colors, or in a subtler interpretation of the pattern, fashionistas couldn’t seem to get enough of it.
In contrast to the eye-catching plaid, complete tone on tone looks served as a fresh contrast on the city streets. The understated and chic tonal looks played on texture and fabrics. Think light grey and soft beige outerwear over cream tops, and khaki and browns paired with caramel. These blended outfits definitely stood out.
Forget any traditional, old boring pantsuit. Fashion week is serious business and these fashionista-approved pantsuits were seriously stylish. From full leather looks to all white pantsuits and oversized jackets with trousers tucked into boots, this is the new out of office attire.
RufflesWhile some opted for understated minimalism, others preferred to be bold, loud and proud. From subtle ruffles on skirts, to full on ruffled skirts, and ruffled coats to full on ruffled dresses – it was all about having fun with all the frills.
It may not be spring just yet but the streets of LFW were in full bloom. Floral prints in every color, size and variety appeared on dresses, skirts, coats and hats. Billy Porter opted for a bright floral skirt, while Erin O’conner and Susie Lau chose fun floral dresses. Meanwhile, other fashion darlings went all out with layered floral prints.
Animal PrintFashion week was wild – in more ways than one. While animal print coats never really go out of style, this season also saw brightly colored animal prints on dresses, skirts and coats. While those who embraced the trend layered the print on, those who preferred to go mildly wild, opted to stomp around in striking animal print shoes.
There was no fading to black for these beauties who stood out in their all black ensembles. Cate Blanchett looked effortlessly chic in her all black ensemble, accented with a simple chain belt. There’s a reason why the color is still a favorite fashion uniform. Sometimes the absence of color creates the biggest presence.
At the other end of the spectrum, neon was a bright jolt of color on many a fashion week OOTDs. You know it’s a trend when the Beckhams are in on it and Cruz Beckham sat front row in his mum, Victoria’s show in his own neon colored jumper.
