7 Things We Learnt From London Fashion Week

London Fashion Week has officially finished, and whilst this is devastating news for the fashion pack, we’re still in an LFW-induced bubble of happiness. After playing paparazzi at Brewer Street – hunting out the best street style the capital had to offer – and taking in some fabulous shows, we’re taking some time to reflect on what we learnt from those five days in fashion paradise…

Crocs will never be in. Never

Christopher Kane Crocs

If Christopher Kane isn’t able to transform Crocs from drab to fab, nobody can.


Statement sleeves are the trend of the moment


From bell to trumpet shapes (or just hugely oversized), it’s time to up your sleeve game this season, à la LFW street style.


Messy hair is the new black

Messy Hair

Time to ditch the hairbrush and embrace your ‘I just woke up like this’ ’do – messy, dishevelled barnets were all over the catwalks.

Ditch the heels – flats are back


High-heel haters, rejoice: stilettos are swapped for slip-ons and sneakers this season. No more blisters!


SS17 has some seriously strange trends


Only wearing one earring. Tying your sleeves into a bow, rather than putting your arms through them. Really asymmetrical hemlines. Wearing flowers as lipstick. Wait, what?

Gender bending is our new favourite

Gender Bending

Unisex style was everywhere at LFW: men in tunics and skirts, with women suited and booted. Androgynous, gender-blurring style is effortless and edgy all in one – we like.


Sassy = style


The sassier your style, the better. This LFW saw slogan tees, emblazoned jackets and some seriously statement accessories hit the runway and the streets – that’s what we call fierce fashion!
