London’s unique brand of eclectic street style is growing up – we’re now opting into logo dressing, full-look heritage checks and natural textures. These are the trends to watch right now.
1. Mood: New heritage
Big, baggy and checked? Check. The new trouser and coat shapes to covet now hint at British heritage classics, with a fashion-forward, oversized spin.
2. Accessories: Fishnet tights
As the LFW hub once again returned to the heart of Soho, it felt fitting to step into racy hosiery. Wear yours under jeans, with a dinky heel.
3. Coat: The guilded military peacoat
Gold trims and polished double-breasted cuts elevate the handsome style classic into a new season hero piece. Why is it a fashion editor’s favourite? A clever update on the all-black ensemble will always be a hit.
4. Shoes: The metallic loafer
Flashes of glam rock shimmer and shine have rolled-over from New York Fashion Week onto the streets of London. What they wore them with? Rigid denim and clashing, glittery socks.
5. Texture: Raw
While we’re falling for magpie accessories – the full look is about super-natural linen and raw cotton. What we want now? Loewe’s utility boiler suit.
6. Game Changer: Clashing logos
Top marks go to anyone who’s already invested in Louis Vuitton’s monogram tote, a straight-off-the-catwalk Burberry check handbag, Vetements tee, or Gucci belt. The next step is how you wear your logos. Stay ahead of the pack and wear them all at once, or with tongue-in-cheek bohemian layers.
