They’re the looks you’ll be copying all season- with London Fashion Week in full swing, where better to get the latest inspiration than the style on the streets. From exaggerated sleeves to metallic shoes, here are the trends that matter.
OFF THE SHOULDER SHIRTS
While last summer saw the bardot shape, this spring sees effortless off shoulder styles with deconstructed shirts at the forefront of the trend- Think workwear silhouettes with a twist.
From bell to balloon detailing, statement sleeves are massive this season. Whether it’s flouncy with ruffles or elongated for high impact, they’re the perfect way to uplift a day look.
Statement stitching is the go-to for spring, with outerwear and footwear seeing the most intricate of motifs. Try yours on a biker jacket for the ultimate nod to feminine grunge.
Backless shoes that are comfy and slip-on with ease? The fashion world is loving the flat right now, and it’s time to get on board. Think loafer mules with buckle details and of course, faux fur.
Ditch your preconceptions of ethereal, princess-like tulle. This season mesh has a hardwearing edge, with punk elements seeping through with cold weather layering. Go for an all-black ensemble like model Agness Deyn for a sleek and subtle nod to the floaty material that’s everywhere right now.
Those traditional squares have been given a new lease of life for 2017, and they’re hotter than ever. Want to be part of the gingham gang this spring? Make a statement with frill details and layer up with crisp white shirts underneath for when the weather is cold.
The fast track to adding that luxe uplift to your outfit, metallic footwear is key to the new season- team with almost anything, from jersey hoodies to party dresses.
How you wear your coat is changing this spring and it’s time to get on board. Wear off the shoulder to show off your slogan and gather at your waist with a statement belt for a luxe feel.
Dyed, distressed and deconstructed, your denim will be far from perfect this season. Lean towards frayed hems and ripped detailing to get that street style savvy look.
A trend that seems to be standing the test of time right now, sportswear remains the most accessible trend of the season. Your workwear shirts have never looked so perfect paired with contrast stripe joggers and a pair of heels.
