London Fashion Week 2014

There is no better place to feast your eyes than the runway paradise: The London Fashion Week. Looking at the catwalk is like taking a dive into an artist’s most precious palette. In a sea of colors and prints, we get lost in the sashay of notable designers presenting awe-inspiring geometry. Their fearless style is set on a stage that plays high notes of classic and contemporary tailoring. These designers make bold fashion statements that make us drool and start innovating our wardrobes.  From spring trends to summer, it’s time to take a look at the recap of one of the biggest weeks in fashion.

The Trends

Layers

The layered look will be embraced by the spring with the option to layer everything from coats to sweaters.Big designers were embracing the layered look and Metro UK noted “All the big labels – Burberry, Temperley, Peter Pilotto, Giles – featured outfits with multiple, matching layers. The most common version of this trend was a matching scarf/coat combo, as seen at Burberry and, no doubt, this will be copied by the high street.”

Colors

With the arrival of spring, we saw a lot of bright colors blooming on the runway.  Burberry, and Vivienne Westwood, packed a punch when it came to appealing to the color palette. The colors to adorn for spring will be vibrant, shameless, loud and metallic. Don’t be afraid to take out that fuchsia or orange lipstick and those bright pink ballet flats. It’s possible that a color-blocking style will be welcomed with open arms for the summer.

Meanwhile, designers like Tom Ford and John Rocha embraced the allure found in the dark and gothic. Dark can be sexy and mysterious.A way to create this is to embrace different textures and hues of black. Think fishnet stocking, dresses, strappy sandals and sweaters.  For your makeup,just think about Lorde’s latest Grammy look and copy her deep purple lipstick.

Prints

Designers like Mulberry and Moschino embraced the “confident rhythm to spring 2014′s simplified silhouettes.” Print mixing is a sophisticated method that is both bold and wearable. You can go from polka dots to audacious stripes. Imagine throwing on a polka dot blouse with some black, fitted, slacks. Pairing prints with solids prevents an outfit from being too busy. A lady should be both self-expressive and charming. Fortunately, prints can do just that. The visual context defines your style and the patterns add a lot of sass to any outfit. To learn to love prints, you must understand what abstracts look the best on you. One must not be too concerned with the fear of being too “loud” or obnoxious when wearing prints. Find the charm in texture and Bluegala colors. The rest is all about enhancing your personal style.

Head to Toe White

Unique presented their latest designs at The London Fashion Week. These designs will be carried by Topshop and guess what? Cara Delvigne was leading a pack of runway models all wearing white!

White is the story of fresh. Think of the white oleander. It blooms into a romance of white elegance. Jackie Kennedy Onassis looked classic in white and this ensemble can be worn head to toe and still look ultra-chic. You can wear loosely tailored white pants with a white blazer to get that clean, structure, silhouette. If you want to wear white from head to toe, the key is to mix the depth of texture with material. As a perfect example, you can mix a lace blouse with white denim trousers.

For a more bold look, wear a large chunky white necklace or go ahead and break the rules and wear a colorful statement piece.

The London Fashion Week 2014 ended with a bang.  The showcase was dynamic, inviting, bold and flavorful.  You just can’t get enough.  Taking a few inspirations from the runway can help you revamp your wardrobe.  Can’t get enough of the catwalk, check out what happened at Paris Fashion Week 2014!
