Top Street Style Trends
During London Fashion Week
Fashion weeks around the globe give us a glimpse into big trends for the new season. It’s a time where the designer greats serve up some of the hottest looks that leave us wanting more. However, it’s not just the catwalks that command attention during London Fashion Week.
For action outside the exclusive collections, you just need to head into the street at 180 Strand to see some of the best, and boldest street style looks to hit the event. The fash pack didn’t disappoint, and even with warm temperatures in the capital, there was a range of stunning autumn-inspired styles to digest.
From celebrity appearances to our favourite influencers, there was an eclectic mix of fashion to get you inspired. Check out some of the top looks:
One of the big takeaways from the AW19 collections was the significant influence of oversized tailoring. Big shoulders and sharp blazers rocked the catwalk with Celine, Burberry and Gucci making frumpy look fresh. So it comes as no surprise that we saw plenty of beautiful oversized blazers and wide-leg trousers making their seasonal debut.
As always, Billy Porter offered a striking selection of tailored looks including a vibrant pink jacket outside the fabulous House of Holland show. Plus, a classic black suit jacket paired with velvet trousers for Sharon Wauchob’s event.
The shoe of the season
Bottega Veneta is everywhere at the moment. So you may have spotted the fashion house’s new IT show gracing the heels of influencers everywhere. Some particular favourites include the square toe mule and knot sandal. This simply elegant shoe with Bottega’s signature puffed-style leather was the perfect accompaniment to oversized tailoring – and was spotted on influencers Victoria Magrath and Leonie Hanne outside the Roland Mouret show.
Oh so 90s
Alongside the revival of the square toe, London Fashion Week saw a host of other nods to the decade amongst the street style stars. A firm favourite included the return of the Dad shoe, well more precisely the Balenciaga Triple S trainer. Not only has this shoe been a huge fashion force in the past year, but it also makes the perfect footwear to run between shows and still look on-point. 90s grunge-inspired style and snake-print boots also popped up throughout the event.
A neutral palette
London Fashion Week saw a host of autumnal looks and spectacular seasonal colour combinations. However, there was still a peek of neutral vibes coming through for the perfect transitional look. Beige undertones and tan hues were prevalent in tailored attire. Plus, Alexa Chung also offered swathes of dusky pink and oatmeal in her outerwear before the shows. We can’t forget the classic and timeless look of black in this palette either, and there were some striking looks that complemented the muted hues in each outfit.
Street style often gives us a glimpse into the secrets of styling the hottest trends for the new season but with a little realism thrown in. Plus, who isn’t excited to see the next big trends to inspire your next designer buys!
