Fashion month can seem overwhelming with the sheer number of shows to keep up with, especially if attending said shows isn’t part of your job and you can’t spend all day waiting for Vogue Runway to update its pages. Here we’ve whittled London Fashion Week down to five key trends that you can easily incorporate into your wardrobe should you wish to:

 

Twisted trenches

If one thing’s been made clear this past week it’s that the trench coat is going nowhere, but it is having quite a revamp. Think bright colours, PVC, faux-fur lining - in fact, the more you can deconstruct and warp it the better. Victoria Beckham paired a more traditional shade of the coat with a bright midi dress and leopard-print sock boots to make sure she was well out of Sherlock Holmes territory, and at Ports 1961 a calm baby blue leather number was given an edge by opening the sleeves to allow a crisp white shirt underneath to peep out.

Sock it to me

The sock boot well and truly cemented itself as a wardrobe staple among the fash pack in recent seasons and for AW19 it has reached new heights (literally). From the leopard–print statements at Victoria Beckham to the sleek and silky strides at Shopyte, the thigh-high sock boot (the stocking boot perhaps?) has just made autumn dressing 10x easier; simply stick a pair of these on under a trench coat and leave the rest to the imagination.

The Waldorf effect

The year is 2019. Blair Waldorf is sitting in her Upper East Side penthouse wondering where Chuck’s got to. Henry is running around causing havoc. She begins to scroll through Instagram and suddenly all is right in the world again: headbands are well and truly back.  No longer the confine of preppy schoolgirls in the late noughties, hair ribbons and bands were everywhere at LFW.  We especially love Gayeon Lee’s sleek low buns finished - like all the best gifts are - with a ribbon, and Molly Goddard’s simple black headbands that let the dresses do the talking but still prove an effort has been made from head-to-toe.

Too much is never enough

The stalwart of airport fashion has landed in London and it might just be the most practical trend since boilersuits. For those days when there’s frost on the grass when you leave your house at 7am but by midday the temperature’s reached a balmy 14 degrees and your teddy coat is too much, layering provides the answer. Be it the jackets over sweaters over shirts at Vivienne Westwood or the dresses topped with cropped jumpers at Katie Ann McGuigan, it’s clear that pass-the-parcel chic is definitely in this season.

Loud and proud

Remember when the coolest kids in school were the ones with the best selection of highlighters? Well AW19 is basically going to be the grown up version of that; black may be a classic and white may be timeless, but this season is all about shocking shades - and the brighter the better. If you’re not quite ready to totally embrace your inner Sharpie then you can take a leaf out of Richard Quinn’s book and pair one or two vivid hues with all black accessories, but if you’re ready to fully commit then look to Halpern for a lesson in luminosity.
