London was a whirlwind! I could barely keep up with the constant steam of photos. Milan is now in full swing so its high time I shared my review of the trends to watch from London. As always, there were some similarities to New York, but everything was done in typical London manner, with a certain flair.
1. Blue Too
Oh yes, blue featured heavily in London too. Cobalt is going to be everywhere come September – I can’t wait! London also embraced the icier blue tones which looked fantastic against greys and navys. Topshop Uniquie really nailed it for me with their mix of blues and textures. Lots to look forward to.
2. Rich Reds
In a complete 180 from blues, red and orange made an appearance at LFW. These warmer tones will make great transitional pieces from summer to winter, especially that fantastic orange seen on the coats at the Preen show. Such a show stopping colour!
3. Sheer Genius
Sheer was a major trend in London, which seems mad because when it gets freezing again, the last thing you’ll want to throw on is a sheer dress! Although, I could be persuaded by those stunning sheer embroidered slips in Burberry. They are to die for!
4. Emerald Envy
I literally couldn’t be happier that these stunning green tones are going to be huge next season. Green is my favourite colour to wear, but I find it very difficult to find the right shade of green. It looks like next season, I won’t be having that problem at all!
5. Fuzzy Friends
I want to wrap up in one of these coats immediately and not take it off until it is officially summer
6. Short and Sweet
We saw this in New York too, micro skirts and dresses are going no where. Pair them with Topshop’s stunning thigh high suede boots for a school girl gone bad edge.
So there you have it. Another incredible LFW. Now its all about the Milan madness! Check in with the Okaybee Facebook to see some of my favourite red carpets looks and what I’ve been wearing. Milan review coming soon!
