LFW : London Fashion Week Trend A/W15

Let's take a look at what the UK top designers wants us to be wearing this winter. The culottes have spread to this side of the pond also. There's less pastels and more primary colours and retro prints. While the designers were all saying boho seventies, here its more focused on the early part of the decade with more sixties mod dresses with layering polo neck. Lots and lots of polo necks.

Roll Neck, Low hem

Layering is in and we're glad for this winter warming trend. You can pile on chunky knits and thick coats and still be chic. Instead of pairing your turtle neck with pencil skirt for the hourglass shape try it with an ankle-length flared hem for a more relaxed vibe like Barbara Casasola and 1205. Or layer it under a slip dress like Tanya Taylor.


60's Mod

Since the Mod subculture started in Britain back in the 60's where else can do it better than at LFW. The mini hemline dresses are in bold graphics at Judy Wu, color blocked at J Moon and psychedelic swirl at Jonathan Saunders. If roll neck and long hem is not for you then try this trend. Layer your polo neck with A-line skirt and a pair of knee high boots for swinging 60's cool.

Thigh Slit

Here's a trend you don't have to wait till winter to wear. We're celebrating the legs. The high slits are in again not just in London but across the fashion cities. Side slits on floaty dresses at Topshop Uniques and Matthew Williamson are spot on the seventies. Front slit kept things more day time at David Koma and Burberry Prorsum.

Summer Leather

Leather is seen every season everywhere, its a classic material used to add tough edge to an outfit. This time step outside the comfort zone because leather is not just on jackets anymore. Sophisticated structured leather seen at David Koma, laser cut leather dress at Erdem and wrap dress at JW Anderson. Great for early summer and easing into the winter also.
