London Fashion Week is in full swing, and over the next few days we’ll be bringing you the best highlights from each day of the event. Check out the Day 1 Roundup below, and be sure to check back again tomorrow for your front-row look at whats to come for Autumn/Winter 2012.
So after all of the excitement of London Fashion week has died down, we’re back to share another one of our favourite bloggers with you. And this week, we’ve been doting on the fantastically stylish blog: Sugar and Spice.
It’s clear that Emily, the blogger behind Sugar and Spice, has a brilliant grasp of trends, and there’s no fooling her when it comes to what works and what doesn’t. We especially love her coverage on London Fashion week, especially this post about the gorgeous new collection from Jasper Conran. Another one of our favourite regular features is the ‘Whats in my…’ series – it’s always great to have a nosey into someone’s bag!
Emily’s blog covers a range of topics from her latest fashion influences, right through to great make up and nail tips, so be sure to check it out!
Also, don’t forget to follow her on Twitter!
It certainly feels like London Fashion Week started and finished in the blink of an eye, but we had a fabulous time! And once again, the F&F team were on site at Somerset House with the important task of snapping the best style spotted on the street.
However, with so many wonderful outfits, we asked you guys to help us crown the ‘LFW Street Style of the Day’, by decide on your favourite looks over on our Facebook page! It was certainly a close call, but keep reading to take a peek at the best outfits of the week, as voted for by you!
With influences from the Parisian scene, we just adored the understated style and sense of cool this woman gives off. Bright reds and blacks go together perfectly and give a very classy feel to the outfit.
We loved how eccentric this outfit was! The big bold pleats are certain to turn heads and this girl really shows how to wear them. We especially like the mix between the subtle checks on one side and the vivid yellows on the other half of the dress. Oh, and just look at those gorgeous shoes!
Autumnal tones were definitely starting to emerge this Fashion Week, and we loved the combination of a bright orange v-neck top with a tailored tweed jacket, for that touch of English-gentleman. The outfit is also completed nicely with stylish boots and a vintage inspired leather satchel.
This amazing ensemble fits in perfectly with this season’s Monochrome Trend. We especially fell for the retro styling of her jacket, and the leather detailing on the sleeves are bang on trend for this season. Her vintage looking blouse is a wonderful addition and oversized 60’s glasses give her outfit that extra wow factor!
People often have doubts about clashing patterns, but this dress shows how they can look beautiful when done right. The transition between intricate prints on the top of the dress and bold black and white dots toward the bottom is flawless, and we love how she has balanced out the print with a pair of understated black ankle wedges!
It only seems like last week that we were announcing our sponsorship of London Fashion Week, and we’ve had a brilliant time at Somerset House this week watching all the Spring/Summer 2012 trends strut down the runway!
However, more importantly, Autumn/Winter 2011 has already arrived! So before you think about piecing together that all-important wardrobe, we thought we’d take a look back at the A/W11 trends that came hard and fast straight off the catwalks in February…
It may be the season for layering, but bright colours certainly haven’t gone into hibernation! Electric shades took fashionistas by surprise back in February, as they lit up the runways of Matthew Williamson and Roksanda Illinic. The key to working this trend is to focus on accessories – make sure these match your look by choosing the right colour to clash!
This Autumn/Winter, keep an eye out for structure – think 60’s inspired minimalist shift dresses in a mix of fabrics – as seen storming the catwalks of Burberry, Christopher Kane and Jonathan Saunders. This clean look is great for flattering your figure, and works effortlessly for any occasion!
It seems the whole fashion world has gone crazy for pleats, and we’re not hiding the fact that we’ve fallen head over heels! Bora Aksu, DAKS, and Amanda Wakeley took full advantage of this tailored look, which ties in perfectly with the English Heritage trends that are due to be big this Autumn/Winter. Wear this trend in a more classic manner, with sheer blouses and quilted jackets.
Despite the AW11 collections being more colourful than previous seasons, Monochrome still managed to turn heads over at Somerset House. Seen at both Julien Macdonald and Giles, this trend is the perfect combination of dramatic impact and chic styling. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different textures and fabrics when piecing together this trend – the limited colour palette means that you can be a bit more playful!
So here I am, waiting for the final call for my first-class flight to Milan for fashion week, but I didn’t want to leave London without giving you my spin on the trends that emerged for next spring at London Fashion Week over the past few days. So here goes…
The hot pink cocktail dress: wow dressing at its simplest and best.
Floral prints: big and small on skirts, blouses, t-shirts, trousers, you name it.
Cardigans: printed, beaded and patterned, it’s the new season jacket.
Tropical colour: kingfisher blue, Jaffa orange or sunshine yellow, pick any hue so long as it pops.
Wedges:still the shoe of choice for summer. Phew!
