The weird, wonderful and wearable trends from London Fashion Week
It might not even be officially winter yet, but as far as fashion is concerned – Spring has officially sprung.
Whilst the fashionistas at London Fashion Week have been gossiping about the front row elite and fabulous collections, the only thing we actually want to know is – what will everyone be wearing next year?
To help give you a little look into the future of some of the trends to look forward to and avoid like the plague, here’s what trends rocked the catwalk and will be hitting shops in the next few months.
Baby blues: Whilst deep berry and purple colours are taking over Autumn, come spring we’ll all be wearing primary colours, with blues and reds the ‘it’ colours of the season.
Floral and tropical: Floral will be returning, with some really beautiful feminine maxi dresses – think cutesy tiny flowers and chiffon. If you want something a bit bolder, tropical and natural prints of leaves and parrots were also seen on the catwalks.
We’re still making our mind up about:
Checks: From monochrome horizontal stripes to tartan, Spring is all about showing your stripes and mixing them too. Expect lots of strange prints to hit the shops and the bravest of the brave mixing zig-zags, stripes and check prints.
Futuristic: Following on from the sci-fi vibe of this season, expect to see a lot of space-age shiny materials come Spring. Although we don’t see the full-on robotic looks working on normal people, we think some of the subtle silver pieces could definitely work and add a bit of glamour to our wardrobes.
We’ll be avoiding:
Oversized Anything: A fan of Aladdin’s stylish trousers? You’re in luck! All things billowing were quite the hit, as were voluminous sleeves as seen at Burberry. We’re not really into things that add volume to our frames so won’t be saving up for massive over-sized coats anytime soon - but if you're a size zero this is definitely one to try!
See-through dresses: Definitely not one we’ll be rocking on the school run, Topshop Unique led the way with sheer see-through dresses and blouses with conveniently placed fabric to just about cover the model’s modesty.
