London is the sort of place where you could wear a ball gown to the supermarket and nobody would bat an eyelid. Our resident street style snapper Gill Case captured some of the most inspiring, exciting and innovative looks this season, reminding us why London is the capital of fashion.
Although it may be the runway that makes the front page, we think the streets were grabbing just as much attention at last month’s London Fashion Week. And this one has been particularly exciting, with the recent fur ban setting different expectations for new designers, Victoria Beckham’s ten year sartorial anniversary and Alexa Chung hosting her first runway show.
The city was transformed into its own red carpet, as us lowly citizens have proved that it is not just the A-Listers who have star-studded style. Check out our favourite looks below:
Fabulously floral, these two make the perfect pair. Although Autumn is arriving, these ensembles display how you can still hold onto that summer spirit by wearing lighter washes of denim. This look is simple yet effective.
This blazer displays the perfect way to add some zest to a plain outfit. The combination of flowers and colours resemble some likeliness to Gucci’s super on-trend floral suits.
This bold print puts an exotic twist onto a classic jumpsuit, giving it a serpentine quality. The ensemble is picture perfect with matching head piece and statement sunglasses.
Trench coats are an absolute classic, and what better way to style them than with co-ordinating bags and sunglasses. We’re definitely feeling some Kim K vibes with these shoes too.
A look that only a few could pull off, the silhouette and tones of this dress look like an elegant blossom flower, but the bold clashing colour of the shoes and bag add some edge and balance out the ensemble.
This headpiece reminds us of the iconic fruit millinery worn by Carmen Miranda, and the colour choice of gold and purple contributes to the majesty of the outfit.
Mary-Kate and Ashley take London! The combination of ombre hair, oversized sunglasses and eye-catching patterned dresses are the perfect boho-chic look for this Autumn.
This trio looks like a power group about to hit the stage. The cocktail of retro hued colours within their outfits complement each other brilliantly. We’re particularly loving those mustard flared trousers and hot pink boots.
These ladies are pretty in pink and could definitely give Elle Woods a run for her money. And whether it was intentional or not, the cream moped in the background is an ideal accessory, making for a perfect street style shot.
Serving cartoon chic, this incredible hairstyle is wonderfully synchronised with the pop art printed cami dress and the monochromatic statement sunglasses balance out the striking ensemble. A look that Lichtenstein would be proud of.
This look is reminiscent of Frida Kahlo and the tropically printed gown is immpecably accessoried with tasselled earrings and a co-ordinating headpiece. Designers such as Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior and Paul Poiret also referenced Far Eastern culture into their printed fabrics on the catwalk last fall. This is a statuesque look to be remembered.
What a match made in heaven (and yes, we mean the car, too). We love how this model has taken a typically punk led trend, being tartan, and contrasted it with a formal shirt and Chelsea boots.
We love this combination of elegant Victorian lace and Mike Wazowski green. Neon is a huge trend at the moment and has been seen on the likes of Kim Kardashian, Blake Lively and Sarah Paulson.
Do you ever feel like you want to look professional and smart but be comfortable at the same time? Of course you do. Take a lesson from these fashionistas who tamed down formal looks with trainers.
Technicolour was all the rave last spring, seen on the Dolce & Gabbana and Peter Pilotto catwalks, and it appears this cheerful trend is still thriving. Whether you would sport this colourful look yourself, there is no doubt that this ensemble will brighten up your day.
The baker boy cap is back, and it is undoubtedly with the help of the ‘Peaky Blinders’. Originally worn as part of uniform in the 1920s, this accessory was later made iconic by Barbara Streisand in ‘What’s Up Doc’. Nowadays, the baker boy cap is the perfect way to style it out in colder months, and with the likes of Brooklyn Beckham sporting them, how could you resist?
This candy cane look is ultra-sweet and follows the aforementioned neon trend. We cannot help but think of Frenchie from Grease with this outfit, which is given a modern streetwear edge with a puffer jacket and bubblegum pink eyebrows.
Did somebody say Catwoman? Sexy skintight materials like vinyl, latex and patent proved to be a seductive trend this AW18 for Miu Miu and Adam Selman. The looks above are teamed with over sized jackets and cat eye sunglasses for a Matrix/rock chick look.
Everybody is going wild for leopard print at the moment. Teamed with co-ordinating seperates, these ensembles give us a modern take on Bet Lynch from EastEnders, and we love it. The combination of bold print and an androgynous silhouette is a fabulous statement.
Last but not least, Izzy B Phillips from band Black Honey is proving McDonald’s certainly isn’t junk! This get-up has some serious Moschino vibes to it, and the rocker has turned an unsuspecting work uniform into a fashion statement. You look absolutely McGorgeous (sorry, we couldn’t resist that last one).
