LFW Street Style: Get the Look in centre:mk.

London Fashion Week autumn/winter 2019 saw fashion inspiration from the last four decades of style take on a fresh new contemporary look for this season. A whole range of designers hosted shows at The Store X in London, and we had the privilege of attending Alexa Chung’s collection inspired by female empowerment.

 

 

The neutral autumnal colour palette was juxtaposed with heavily printed knitwear taking a nod from 70’s bright vibrant colours. (Predicted to be a top trend for this season.) Also featured was chunky platform disco inspired boots, perfect ahead of the upcoming party season.

 

As London Fashion Week draws to a close we thought we’d inspire your Autumn/Winter wardrobe with LFW Street Style: Get the Look in centre:mk.

 

The 70’s was a decade consisting of vibrant prints and colours as well as bell bottom flares. Yellow has been a big hit on and off the catwalk this season, as seen by this ‘street styler’ using clashing brights to create her eye catching look. Quiz Yellow Trousers, £24.99.

    

Co-ord’s are the easiest way to pull a look together, mixing corduroy and flares can create a statement look. John Lewis have taken an autumnal spin on corduroy trousers with a wine red or for a more casual take, M&S have a variation of colours in their jean look corduroy trouser. John Lewis Wine Trousers, £99, M&S Black Trousers, £22.50.

 

  

 

  

Monsoon Midi Skirt, £49

80’s fashion was extremely popular in London Fashion Week street style. The grunge inspired leather look created a fresh take on work-casual. As leather was already a big trend for this A/W, centre:mk have plenty of stores sporting the look. River Island supplies you with the rock chic look with silver hardware and a chunky belt, £46 and also the versatile look with a leather skirt in the ‘street stylers’ favourite chocolate brown colour, £36.

One of the biggest trends that has continued through spring/summer into this season is oversized blazers. London’s ‘street stylers’ rocked this look, taking a nod from the power dressing 80’s decade. For a classic everyday blazer head to Warehouse at John Lewis, £59. The loose fit can be dressed up or down with a pair of denim jeans or tailored trousers. If you are after a statement blazer to bring your look together, Next’s Emma Willis collection Teal Blazer, £60 is perfect.

  

  

The 90’s has been classed as the most on-trend decade for fashion right now! From cargo trousers and tartan, to crop tops and butterfly clips, the 90s supplied us with everything to create the perfect look. River Island Boiler Suit, £65

  

The boiler suit was a favourite throughout the spring summer season, River Island have recreated the trend with an autumnal twist.  Inspired by this ‘street styler’ and the cargo trend of the 90’s, you can mix both trends and be ready for the colder days.

  

Footasylum Nike Jacket, £154

The most popular trend to start A/W style has to be hair accessories, check out the 90’s butterfly clip in Claire’s for just £5.50.

  

The noughties to fashion today reveals a toned down look in silhouette and colour palette. From monochrome to luxury sportswear, the go-to look has adapted across the decades. Neutrals have become the new black and logos are as prevalent as ever, Fila at JD Sports, £10.

 

 

  

While mini bags and chunky trainers are a fashion staple to keep on-trend, Jigsaw’s micro bag has a classic finish for a more subtle incorporation of the look, £75. Whereas Primark’s mini leopard print bag is great to add a bold finish to your outfit.
