Fall/Winter Fashion Week 2016 Trends: London Edition

LFW 2016

Sartorially speaking, London packs quite a punch in the short time that is Fashion Week. Designers range from ridiculously cool streetwear to devilishly divine evening elegance, and everything in between.  But what stood out more this time around were the details, the accessories and the color choices.  We’re talking about the little idiosyncratic embellishments and heavily defined features that create the wow moments of Fashion Month.  The ones that are so spectacular style-wise, they immediately force you to forgo your current wardrobe and step into the next season without even blinking an eye.  Ahead, your style tarot card reading that will have you seeing visions of fabulousness in your future.

Urban Decay – Elegant eveningwear prevailed in the form of gothic romance and disheveled feminism thanks to the brilliant minds of designers like Erdem and Christopher Kane. The style takeaway? Toughen up at night, but don’t skimp on the ultra delicate and ladylike details.Erdem Neck Tie - Pinterest Roksanda Neck Tie - Pinterest Temperley Neck Tie - Pinterest


Tie Me Up Buttercup – The love of a well-placed bow hasn’t skipped a beat this Fashion Week.  For next season, expect to replace your favorite statement necklace with an oversized ribbon tied to emphasize the necklines of dresses, blouses, jumpsuits and capes.

The Power of Pink – Pantone’s Color of the Year, Rose Quartz, was in full effect during LFW.  Pink saturated the runways in the most delightfully feminine way ranging from raspberry spiked sequin gowns to confectionary hued jumpsuits.

Size Matters – Keep one thing in mind next fall – the larger the coat, the more stylishly on-point the outerwear.  Because bigger is better in the sense of maxi lengths, supersized shearling bombers and jumbo quilts (Sarah Burton we salute you!).
