Although London Fashion Week was almost a few months ago, what can we take-away from this and how has it impacted the city’s ensembles? With the biggest names in fashion gathered along the runway, everyone was keeping an eye on their outfits as much as the designer catwalk. How has one of the biggest events in the year translated into real world fashion trends?
Bohemian Evening Wear
Evening wear is becoming more relaxed, with people turning to bohemian fashion, even when the lights go down. Cuts are soft and flowing, making this one of the most romantic trends this year. Prints can involve anything from oriental gold leaf to spring florals.
Of course, power-dressing always gets a look-in. Trouser suits are a fantastic option for the office this spring to look on-trend and ready to take on the world. They are also, fortunately, highly practical, so dress to impress during your work day and feel more confident in yourself.
The leather biker jacket has been having a moment for a long time now. As of this spring, denim is back on-trend. Wear a denim jacket with a feminine, vintage dress – such as these from Zalando – and you’ll be fully-equipped for sunny days in London city.
This country pattern is simple and innocent-looking. Gingham is great for evoking memories of picnics in London parks, so get into the spring groove with a gingham dress. There’s nothing like this pattern for full-blown nostalgia.
One of the hardest materials to keep in good nick, fashion rarely cares about maintenance problems! Suede is back, and was often paraded along the catwalk. Used best? When going for a slightly wild cave girl look or as a soft trench coat. Go on – we dare you.
Prints, this year, are not shy. Bold, beautiful, and bright, statement prints are on-trend, and are often found on jackets or wrap-around coats. Not for wallflowers, this style will make sure that you get noticed. Often the features include eye-grabbing flowers, giving this look a feminine twist.
A Hint Of Midriff
Choose a vintage, high waist skirt, and match it with an embellished crop top. This doesn’t need to expose a lot of skin; just the smallest amount along your midriff. This ensemble is perfect for high-brow dos, and can be used absolutely tastefully, instead of bearing all.
Most of us think of cowboy jackets, when we think of fringes, but done right this embellishment can really enhance an outfit. Whether this is on a 1920s style dress or to give a boot that extra point of interest, fringes have their place in the fashion sphere.
We know it has all been about the short denim shorts for a long time, but now, festive chic is changing drastically. ‘60s band grunge is definitely in, harking back to the exciting start of rock and roll. You’ll be more likely to see dresses that look as if they were worn by groupies in ’69 than short-shorts this season.
