5 London Fashion Week Street Style Trends We Want To Wear Now

With London Fashion Week coming to a close today, we are well and truly in the thick of fashion month. Of course, the shows have been as big as ever, but the action outside the venues has been equally noteworthy: top editors, buyers and influencers from around the world have been sporting their picks of the present season and showing us how to tackle the UK’s infamously tricky transitional weather with finesse. From layered clashing colours to a twist on the classic trench, here’s what was trending on the streets of London Fashion Week…

1. Wear your style on your sleeve…

When it comes to sleeves, the motto this season is go big or go home. Stylish show attendees took their standard sleeves on dresses and shirts and blew them up to XXL puffed-out proportions like the totally extra fashionistas they are.

2. Look like sheer perfection…

Sheer and organza pieces are set to be everywhere this season but, obviously, the street style set already knew that. Whether it was in the form of shirts, skirts or dresses, they wore little (if anything) underneath and contrasted tops with harder materials like cargo pants and skirts.

3. Wear clothes as bright as your future…

From striking neon to sunset hues, the streets of London were littered with all sorts of cute colourful looks this week. Poppy shades of pink, orange and red were paired together and more summery pieces like skirts, dresses and short sleeves were simply layered for extra warmth.

4. Take your suit out of office…

All sorts of suit pieces were given a new lease of life this week and reimagined in fresh new ways: think blazers worn off-duty with cargo pants and military boots, shirts styled like light jackets over flares and wide-leg trousers juxtaposed against second-skin sheer tops.

5. Give your trench a new-season twist…

The trench coat must be the staple of all wardrobe staples when indecisive transitional weather hits. So, unsurprisingly, they were out in full force this week. We noticed lots of the classic neutral numbers and caught a few checked varieties but, more than anything, we saw slick leather-look trench coats everywhere!
