London Fashion Week Trends
The somewhat mixed feelings from Brexit has not dampened London’s creative energy one bit. It was downright exciting with rich palettes, slouchy silhouettes and ethereal embroidery taking center stage. While there are plenty to covet, here are the 4 best breakout trends set to inspire you this spring.
A shinier counterpoint to velvet’s domination in 2016, satin floated about runways proving to be the fabric of the season. Going beyond the bedroom and into everyday wear, spring’s take features more asymmetrical cuts and richer hues.
Styling tips: Play up satin’s softness with another fabric pairing, or wear one colour the right way by mixing shades from an opposite spectrum for a chic, bold monochromatic look.
Say It With Words
As it goes fashion is reflection of the world at large, and with it t-shirts sporting political and empowering messages dominated the catwalks in London. Follow this trend by wearing your heart on your chest with messages that speak volumes.
Styling tips: Aim to impress and show off your slogan by tucking your statement tees into midi or maxi skirts, or layer it with a dress for a laidback feel.
All Things Shiny
Taking on a more visionary shift, a hybrid of metallic elements set the tone for accessible glamour in this year’s fashion show. From shiny silver finishes to sparkling details rock the high-shine look, day or night.
Styling tips: Shimmer all night long with a touch of silver in a sequined skirt or top, or strive for an explosive silhouette with warm-coloured metallics such as rose gold, copper or bronze.
A Whimsy Twist
Designer fashion is all about the unexpected. From cheeky embellishments to cartoonish colours, the honoured tradition of challenging the style status quo was well and alive.
Styling tips: Whether it’s clashing pretty pastels with fringe earrings or donning a tongue-in-cheek sequined jacket, break the boundaries - your way.
