Get to know AW18 in a little more detail with our exclusive run-down of the best street style trends we spotted at London Fashion Week. The capital’s fashion crowd have spoken…
1. Leopard Print
In case there was any doubt in your mind over this season’s biggest trend then let the street stylers at London Fashion Week set the record straight: leopard print is well and truly it. From wrap-round midi dresses in fiery scarlet shades to animal-inspired accessories, the wild motif made its mark on the capital’s streets like no other.
2. Statement Earrings
Statement earrings have reiterated their relevance once again, with sculptural shapes, sequinned styles and oversized hoops making up the most-coveted adornments of the moment. Glossy gold metals and inky resin textures were the clear favourites of the fashion crowd, evoking a darker mood for the season that lies ahead.
3. Stand-Out Sunglasses
Sunglasses aren’t solely for summer. Show-goers styled cat-eye pairs, square frames and oversized designs with the wardrobe heroes of AW18, from chunky knits to androgynous suits in rusty palettes. Eyewear also moved beyond the basics with tinted lenses and thick frames in contrast colours, transforming the warm-weather essential into an all-season statement-maker.
4. Berets & Baker Boy Hats
From baker boy caps to berets, hats have had a seasonal resurgence for AW18. The symbol of classic French girl cool, berets were favoured by pavement-pounders in ever-versatile tan and black iterations, worn with boxy blazers in floral prints and heritage checks. Baker boy caps also made their long-awaited comeback, with everything from classic black styles to mustard yellow designs vying for your attention.
