It doesn’t get more fabulous than these standout looks from London Fashion Week. This season, designers brought their A-game on the runway with abstract cuts and quirky pieces. See our five favourite trends from the London runways.

#Trending at London Fashion Week

Pringle of Scotland

1 Long and bare, don’t care

The trend: Long coats and shirts

Why we love it: Long coats and shirts are smart and dramatic.

How to wear it: This trend is best worn with skinny or form-fitting trousers. Self-conscious about your curves? Long coats and shirts fall below the waist and give the illusion of a slimmer figure. Plus, they add additional height.

2 Frills and thrills

The trend: Flounces and layering

Why we love it: Flounces make everything look a little more expensive, and layering gives endless options on hot days and cold nights.

How to wear it: Because flounces make a big impression, pair them with something simple and clean-cut. Look for minimalistic pieces that complement the flounce without commanding any attention. As for layering, experiment with colours and prints that work well together.

Daks

3 Flower  power

The trend: Floral prints

Why we love it: “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” That might be the attitude of Miranda Priestly (The Devil Wears Prada), but we still love the trend because it never goes out of style – which makes it an instant classic appropriate for any situation (except for a meeting with Miranda, of course).

How to wear it: Make the floral trend new and fresh by pairing it with other floral numbers. When doing so, items should have simple cuts and silhouettes.

Mulberry

4 Baggy, but never saggy

The trend: Loose-cut trousers and oversized knitwear

Why we love it: Loose trousers are casual and can make you feel like you’re walking among the clouds. Oversized knitwear can be stylish while also providing just as much warmth as a winter coat.

How to wear it: Embrace the ‘90s trend by pairing loose-cut trousers with figure-hugging tops and long necklaces. Or, complement your trousers with oversized knitwear and push the relaxed, chic sense of effortless style to another level.

Mary Katrantzou

5 Shine bright like a diamond

 

The trend: Sequins, beading and iridescent textiles

Why we love it: Every girl wants to shine at some point. This trend makes a lasting impression without you having to say a word.

How to wear it: Keep accessories to a minimum when wearing high-shine items – you don’t want to take attention away from your outfit. Rather, ground your ensemble with neutrals like black or white.
