Much preparation, hype and ultimately spectacular style is the quintessence of any fashion parade. This September, and for the second time this year, a burst of sartorial design has come to Covent Garden by way of the London Fashion Week. Literally hundreds of designs in nearly as many shows cross the catwalks, which makes identifying top trends no easy exploit.
A buzzword to take away from this event is definitely ‘cozy’. It seems that keeping warm and comfortable are top priorities this season. Get under wraps with the hot-to-trot blanket coat. This sizzling item – the blankoat – if you will, needs to be colour-blocked and textured to really tip the trend. If donning a blanket is just not in your attire acceptability, go for the other scorching option of the robe coat. As one of the most versatile coat trends, this one is suitable in practically every length, fabric and colour.
Speaking of colour, neon splashes sliced through neutral garments on the catwalks making low-key outfits pop with bold slashes. While livening up most autumn outfits, steer clear of accessorising with coloured jewels when spattering with neon. Another autumn favourite that never seems to completely disappear from the runways is velvet. This year sees ankle-skimming dresses and coats in solid colours. Add gold or silver accessories to complement the blocks of colour.
An event such as the London Fashion Week is a sensational opportunity to gain insider knowledge on fashion advice from the best brands in the business. It’s also an incredible platform to pick up seasonal wardrobe staples and even statement pieces to accentuate your attire. Razzle with chunky, sparkling rings like the Command Performance Ring or the Enchanting Duo Ring Set. Set a daring décolletage off with an impressive item like the Centre of Attention or the Time Square pendants.
Whilst London Fashion Week can be wildly exclusive, the entire city gets taken over by fashion fever. The streets can be your very own catwalk so make sure you look your autumn best.
