Londoners are known for their eclectic yet effortless style, and the most stylish were in attendance at LFW. Although next year’s trends were shown indoors, out of the streets we saw which trends really resonated this season. What did we see in abundance? Colorful outerwear, backpacks, military-inspired jackets, and patches galore!

NYFW Fall 2015 Recap

New York Fashion Week has come to a close for the season, and the styles were as glamorous as they were varied! From furs to floral embellishments to childish cartoon characters; this year’s offerings had a little bit of everything._A2X0637Inspired by Vikings, the looks at Anna Sui screamed with Scandinavian style. A bevy of bold prints and colorful fur trim were the highlights of the show!

ONP_5507Fur was in fashion at Michael Kors where models donned fox fur in addition to more classic cuts and styles.

ONP_7202Who says neutral has to be tame? At Ralph Lauren creams, tans and taupes stole the show with garments showcasing an undeniable Western flair.

ONP_6655The 1920s made a comeback at Marchesa where gowns were trimmed in fringe and floral embellishments.

T-Shirt Street Style

The “t-shirt and jeans” combo is often referenced when referring to casual and carefree attire. While a t-shirt and jeans is a comfy, cozy standby, it shouldn’t be dismissed as a careless option. T-shirts can be dressed up or down, and can be the foundation for an outfit that’s anything but casual. Graphic tees are an especially bold way to where the style as they often scream with personality, especially the styles we’re seeing on the catwalks and sidewalks now!
