From all-in-one denim to pastel pink suits to check print macs to designer bumbags and teeny tiny sunglasses, the pavements of London have seen it all over the past 5 days, as the capital’s best dressed descended on the pavements of London to showcase this season's showstopping looks for the highly anticipated London Fashion Week.
Though LFW is guaranteed to deliver when it comes to inspiration for next season's wardrobe choices from the fashion elite, the real talk of this London Fashion Week surrounded the increasingly popular street style. As each Fashion Week comes and goes, we're becoming less concerned about what's going on on the catwalks and more concerned about what's going down on the pavements. The pavements have become the ultimate source of fashion inspiration, as each season we look to the fashion crowds to showcase this season's biggest trends and more importantly, how to style them. All you have to do is google LFW to see that there’s more coverage of what fashion bloggers, editors and influencers are wearing to fashion week than the shows themselves and this LFW was certainly no exception, as photographers were queuing up to snap the LFW attendees.
If you’re looking for some fashion inspiration this season, then you need to look off the catwalk and take your research to the streets instead, as there’s some huge trends that have come out of the street style looks from LFW 2018. We’ve spotted sporty stripes, feminine florals, suited and booted tailoring, bold colour blocking and a huge load of check print! We’ve done all the hard work for you and have broken the key London Fashion Week 2018 street style trends down and have put them all under one roof in our ultimate LFW street style trend guide, so make your wardrobe happy this season and shop the key trends now...

Florals for spring? Ground-breaking we know, but there truly is no better way to wave goodbye to winter’s dark and dreary days than with a bright, floral print. The classic floral print has been revived once again for the new season ahead and was pictured splashed across the backs of our favourite fashion bloggers and celebrities throughout London Fashion Week 2018. From colour clashing micro florals perfect for spring, to dark, wintery florals perfect for wearing right now, there are many ways to wear your florals this season, so take your pick from our floral wrap mini skirts, oriental floral jumpsuits, longline floral kimonos and floral bardot skater dresses and inject some florals into your wardrobe and nail one of this season’s biggest trends with ease.
There was one thing that brightened up the streets of London over the past 5 days during LFW and it certainly wasn't the sun, that's for sure! One of the strongest street styles that came out of London Fashion Week was colour blocking, as LFW was brought to life with a sea of red, pinks, blues, greens and purples, all perfectly displayed in the form of co-ord two-piece suits, wide leg tailored trousers, oversized chunky knits, coats and blazers. Just about everybody appeared to be giving this trend a go, with everybody from bloggers to editors to celebrities colour blocking their way through the streets and injecting some colour into the capital for a change. Bold colours are set to be a huge trend for spring summer 2018, so if you’re usually one to shy away from colour, then why not test the waters with one of our new season mustard top teamed with a pair of jeans and when you’re feeling braver, invest in our cobalt blue statement suit to really nail the colour blocking trend as modelled by London’s best-dressed. This is a trend that’s not going anywhere anytime fast, so take some inspiration from these statement LFW street style looks now and brighten up your wardrobe this season!
LFW may have seen more colour than it’s ever seen before when it came to street style, but that’s not to say that black still didn’t manage to steal the show. The timeless all black everything look will forever be a fashion statement and this LFW 2018 was certainly no different, as many opted for a head-to-toe black ensemble to attend the capital’s infamous fashion event. We saw biker jackets thrown over spring ready frill hem maxi skirts for an edgy biker chick finish and high-shine PU textures mixed with more delicate chiffon pieces for a new season spin on the classic all black everything look. Black is here to stay ladies, so invest in some staple black pieces now and finish off your all black ensemble perfectly with a bold red lip.
From pastel pink two-piece suits to the oh-so popular tailored check print jacket, tailoring was one of the most noticeable trends to hit the pavements of London throughout LFW and is set to be one of the key trends this season. Tailoring has long since been a timeless classic, with the tailored blazer making a reappearance season after season and judging by the street style looks of LFW, we appear to be moving away from the classic monochrome tailored suit and more towards bold statement suits in an array of bright hues. From mustard yellow to pastel pinks, violets and dusty blues, this season is all about the coloured suit and we are all for it! The two-piece suit is no longer reserved for the workwear wardrobe, as this season is all about versatile tailoring. We’re talking tailored trousers with a sports luxe twist and statement blazers in bold hues, suitable for everyday wear, so shop our tailored pieces now and do it like the LFW fashionistas this season!
Sports luxe is the trend that just keeps on giving and one that is here to stay for good by the looks of things. London Fashion Week street style was flooded with sporty stripes, chunky trainers, oversized puffer jackets, joggers with side popper detailing and of course classic sporty sweats and we are all for this trend. Any fashion trend that allows us to wear joggers and trainers on a daily basis is A-OK with us and one that the lazy dressers out there should be more than happy to get on board with! The sports luxe trend is all about mixing casual sporty pieces with more structured, tailored items to create a casual but cool outfit that requires minimum effort. Test out the trend this season and team a slogan tee with a pair of our tailored jogging trousers and heeled boots for a killer look that oozes sports luxe.
The Clueless inspired 90s check trend dominated last season and if you thought we weren’t taking it through to spring with us, then we’re afraid you thought wrong. If there was one key noticeable trend to come out of LFW this week, then it was most definitely checks. The streets of London were awash with check coats, tartan trousers and of course the oh-so popular Prince of Wales check blazer that shows absolutely no signs of disappearing anytime soon. There were tailored check two-piece suits in classic grey, but this time they’d been styled with colour pop accessories for a refreshing spring update on the classic monochrome print and statement coats in eye-catching hues. If you don’t already own a classic checked jacket for this season, then we strongly recommend snapping one up now, as trust us when we say that this jacket will become your go-to wardrobe staple you’ll wonder what you ever did without!
It’s no secret that denim is a firm favourite amongst the fashion crowds, but this LFW it was time for 90’s inspired denim in lighter washes to take centre stage, as all-in-one denim dungarees and oversized denim jackets became the talk of the town. Forget the ancient double denim rule, as this season it’s never been cooler to double up your denim, so take inspiration from the capital’s most well-dressed and team an oversized denim jacket with a pair of distressed jeans for the ultimate casual cool look. Spring is all about teaming light wash and mid wash denim with pastel tones, so stay away from those darker tones and lighten up your colour palette this season, taking inspiration from these LFW street style looks.
