London fashion week is here for another season, complete with all the proper fashion you’d expect from one of the world’s most exciting fashion capitals. So what are they wearing? Opting for elevated basics over quick gimmicks, the London set are choosing heightened and elegant fabrics, from supple leathers to chunky knits — and the overall effect is inherently chic. Whether it’s the unexpected ways British women are layering their winter jumpers or the colours they can’t get enough of, we’ve tracked down the trends we’ve seen all over the streets this season below.
100 shades of beige
Why wear just one when you can wear many? Firmly cementing itself as the new black, beige takes out the award for being 2019’s official neutral.
Boots tucked into pants
Despite what you might have been told, boots being tucked into pants is fashion, ladies. Call it the Brit effect, but the look usually only pulled off by fisherman and men in tweed coats has reached the streets of London — and honestly, we’re not complaining.
Clips with a message
Clips, barrettes, hair pins… they’re all having a moment. Add to that a message — names, feelings, anything really — and you’ve got yourself a bona fide trend.
Keeping warm in the coolest of ways, Londoners proved they know how to layer — differently. From a corset over a cardigan to wintery overalls, take cues for your autumn wardrobe, stat.
Orange is the new…
It might not be the new black, but orange was definitely a standout colour on the streets. Shades of rust, terracotta and persimmon were abound on the fashion set, who looked to the 70s for a sweet nod to colour.
Perhaps it’s the prim and proper nature of British ladies, but there was no shortage of white stockings in London this season. Pair yours with cutesy Mary Janes or open toe heels to emulate the Brits.
