London Fashion Week Street Style 2017

It’s no secret that London Fashion Week is well known well as a capital of creativity, and for their eclectic style which contains edgy silhouettes, explosions of colour. Londoners’ tends to be more daring and extravagant compared to the New Yorkers. The city turns into a colorful carnival and despite London’s climatic reputation, they aren’t letting a little rain get in the way of their sartorial spirits. From punk rock to anti-fashion inspired pieces mixed with plenty of bright colours and textures, there is no doubt  that Londoners know how to make a strong entrance.

Here are some of the best street styles spotted during London Fashion week:

Sneakers with everything

It’s already known that sneakers aren’t just for the gym anymore and these fashionistas surely know how to pull it off. Sneakers can add a funky touch to any outfit and can create an effortless carefree look with a cool attitude.

Frills and Ruffles

Lots of ruffles were spotted appeared on the streets of London during fashion week and it seems as if it will continue to be a massive hit for the upcoming season. The flirty detail has been seen on many garments, like multiple ruffles on the sleeves, whether if it’s on a jacket, dress or a top. We absolutely think it’s a perfect way to uplift any look.

Dress over jeans

The 90s are still here and London street style definitely proves it. The “Drouser” was seen everywhere in the British capital, so don’t hesitate to adopt this trend and wear your maxi dress over a pair of blue jeans.

Punk Rock

London’s punk rock roots definitely plays a role in their street style. During LFW ’17, We saw a lot of punk references, which seemed to be more inspired by 90s grunge than traditional punk. Brooches attached to denim jackets, chunky ankle boots, and chunky bangles all helped evoke a rock and roll vibe.

Mix and Match

From the catwalk to the street, the fashion industry is all about pushing its boundaries with the modern concept of mix and match. The new wave of eclecticism means that you can combine prints and texture without any rule, just follow your fashionable instinct.

Statement stripes

Bold stripes in any size are having their moment right now and it seems like Londoners are more than happy to adopt this bold trend. For a sporty cool vibe pair it with denim, or add a pair of classy heels for a fancier touch. This helps create a perfect contrast.

The extra long coat

From trench coats to coats made from velvet and wool, all of the fashionistas are wearing it extra long. The classic streamlined silhouette is feminine and flattering and it can also function as a transitional piece between seasons.

Bright fur coat

A colourful fur coat is a staple piece that can refresh any outfit and bring some fun attitude to your wardrobe, especially in the gloomy weather. Whether it’s a bright magenta, a lemon yellow or a mint green, the joyful maximalist coat is all you need to turn heads on your way to a fashion show.

London + Milan Fashion Week Street Style Report

As NYFW wrapped up, we shifted our focus to Europe, drawing our attention over to the edgy, timeless presentations that the two anticipated fashion capitals had to offer. We’re spending our days reflecting on London’s fun fashion spirit, and Milan’s spontaneous mood. Some say street style is dead– Bloggers got bashed for getting paid to do five outfit changes a day, but that’s a conversation for another day. There were more J.W. Anderson bags instagrammed this season than ever before; beyond that, we saw creativity. There are traces of styles that matter outside the runways. In our eye, it’s never been more alive than at these capitals this season. We saw a play on sleeve silhouettes, the most glamorous footwear choices, and a whole lot of textural love. Here is a full street style report on London and Milan captured along the Women’s Ready-to-Wear Spring / Summer ’17 collections. Coming up next, Paris Fashion Week!

Embroidery Envy

Embroidery is continuously making its mark, and we’re talking outside Jasper Conran‘s runway. The fine details on silky textures, so dainty we love it.

Golden Feet

A contrast with muted tones or dressed down denim ensembles. Shoes are the star of these outfits. Can we talk about the bandana-anklet and sock styling and the sparkliest Miu Miu heels?

XL Sleeves

Arm parties were in full effect this season. From exaggerated sleeve silhouettes to power ruffle shoulders, this sleeve obsession is not leaving anytime soon. No one has to tuck their sleeves in, ever.

London Fashion Week SS17 Trend Report

In the fashion month line up, London comes right after New York and before Milan and Paris. Its slotted place between the American fashion capital and the two European fashion cities might mark it as the style that lies somewhere between the urban chic of New York and the traditional glamour and elegance of Milan and Paris. But as we all know, London does not just fall between styles, it is the rebel child of fashion–always has been–and proved it as such again this London Fashion Week. Here are the trends that came out of LFW Spring/Summer 2017 (or, in Burberry‘s case, AW16. See? Rebels).

Sheer

Sheer anything seems to be going nowhere. Think of it as an edgier way to go lighter for spring. Seen at Christopher Kane paired with a floral decal leather jacket, because…floral leathers for spring? Yes.

Elegance

 Elegance. Is it possible for it to trend? So it may seem. Perhaps in reaction to the athleisure trend, perhaps not, but there is a tone on the runways that emits refined, almost dare I say “ladylike” (though I hate the word) elegance. These women evoke our grandmothers, who looked at getting dressed as a most particular activity, one done with great care and decisive choice.

The Uniform

Structured jackets that call to mind the military uniform are unsurprising for a British catwalk. The history, always present in London, and tradition of English institutions have always influenced fashion. The military uniform is once again at the forefront.

Uneven Hemlines

Deconstructing the classics this season is the uneven hemline. Seen at everywhere from JW Anderson to Preen. This will be a big one for Spring as the dress silhouette, in all lengths and sleeve sizes.

Full Pants

Proper, full pants are here at long last and their sturdy dispositions (Can pants have those? I think so.) leads me to believe that they are not going anywhere for a while. Beautiful with a strong jacket, but also lovely with a long dress layered on top, the full pant is slyly versatile.
