As fashion week moves on to London, a city known for the brilliantly eclectic, we’re happy to report that an easy on the eye sense of grown up sophistication also made its mark.
And just like we did after New York, we’ve considered the top five trends you should try now, straight from the runway. Maybe there’s something in your closet with a similar feel, or maybe all you need is a fresh file of inspiration to finesse things together in a way you might not have thought about.
Here’s a look at the Top Five Trends from London Fashion Week Spring 2016. Consider this a cheat sheet for an instant, updated sense of chic.
Long & Lean Lengths-

Make it yours: In breathable silk, a long summer dress can become a closet constant with its simple silhouette and elongating length. The highlights above go to show you that anything from a simple pleat to an unexpected fold can make them look utterly modern.

Make it yours: Although the 80’s come back into vogue every few years, there’s something irresistible about the decade’s riotous prints and colorways. And though they are wild(and fun!) as ever, take a cue from the optic prints above and consider adding a kick of color to a minimal look with a scarf or a blouse with a similar sense of play.

The Historical Heroine-

Make it yours: Far from yesteryear’s Gunne Sax trend, the romantic streak that hit London was infused with a futuristic bent. Look for light as a feather pieces with statement making ornamentation, or modern twists like a cut-out shoulder.

Make it yours: Asymmetrical panels below the waist appeared to highlight curves while concealing many a woman’s problem areas effectively. Keep the pieces simple yet graphic for even more impact.
New Takes On Menswear-

Make it yours: From running errands to running an office, the comfort, practicality and attitude menswear inspired gear exudes should always have a place in your wardrobe. This by now you must surely know, but to keep these wardrobe must-haves au currant, look for fresh proportions and natty separates. Just look at how chic those bordeaux wide-leg culottes made a simple gray blazer appear at Paul Smith.
