London Fashion Week Street Style SS20
From statement sunglasses and mini bags to bold prints and tactile textures, the street style at London Fashion Week did not fail to deliver this season. Marissa and Rebecca of @TwiceBlessed_ lead the way with their girl gang of well-dressed showgoers.
As the editors, influencers and celebrities (hello Billy Porter!) headed to the city en masse to see the latest collections from Emilia Wickstead, 16Arlington and David Koma, we were there with Net-a-Porter to showcase our three bespoke lipstick colours, created for each one of the designer’s SS20 shows. As modelled by beauty Emily from @TheLipstickFever.
While New Yorkers always bring the glamour and Parisians are the master of understated chic, you can rely on Londoners to push the boundaries when it comes to their fashion. With more eccentric and a real, gritty feel, the style stakes always turn up a notch in the city when fashion week comes to the capital.
One thing nearly all the street style looks had in common this season was texture. From fluffy midi skirts and tasselled suede jackets to textured leather co-ords, this season’s outfits were giving us all the feels (literally).
Billy Porter arrived at the Preen show in a flared monochrome jumpsuit and diamante choker, which would have been fabulous on it’s own, but topped with a faux fur embellished wool jacket he stole the show (and our hearts).
A key trend to emerge from the British streets this September was modern tailoring. Think a delicate silk slip under a pinstripe suit, an oversized blazer paired with jeans (we see you Helen from @stylestructure) or an extra-long shirt over fuschia pink tailored trousers. Business wear, but make it fashion.
Red was the one colour people couldn’t seem to get enough of. Head-to-toe red outfits popped up across fashion week and take note - those who looked ultra modern (like Leonie Hanne @leonihanne) paired theirs with matching red accessories. We’re adding some ruby red eyewear to our cart as we speak.
And when it comes to accessories? Goodbye micro sunglasses, hello oversized aviators. The retro shape is back and bigger than ever before. We’re particularly enamoured with coloured-lense styles.
Crossbody mini bags and Prada pouches were the arm candy of choice. Small, lightweight and easy-to-carry, they leave hands free for texting, snacking or scrolling through the gram before the show starts. Smart move Jessie Bush aka @wethepeoplestyle and pal, very smart.
