More Fall 2016 Trend Ideas from London Fashion Week – Part 2
Hope the ladies are doing well! Amidst the Oscar frenzy, we did leave our coverage of London Fashion Week mid way, but as we promised, we are back again. In this concluding part of London Fashion Week for fall 2016, we will try to cover things as haven’t so far and offer quick ideas to stay on the top of your style game, within your very own budget.
Capes rule again: Even back in fall 2015, we had capes in varied sizes and designs making statement all through the season, and this time too, you will see plenty of stylish cape-inspired designs. Some of the top names like Temperley, Erdem, and Gareth Pugh worked with capes, which were eventually woven in the actual shade of the outfit, but the best idea is the one seen at Alexander McQueen, where gold detailing on black ensemble looked stunning in every way possible. This is easily the outfit of the entire London Fashion Week, which seemed to be inspired a bit from the traditional Indian bride.
The shining star: If you thought you are done with sequins and metallic looks, wait again because there are some great ideas to get inspired. Shining materials were seen at a number of top fashion shows, including that of House of Holland, Peter Pilotto and Felder Felder. Unlike being totally bold, this is a trend that was balanced to ensure that you get the right doze of style even for the day time. In case you stocked the metallic trend that emerged in spring 2014, you can use those shimmer pieces for this season. Make sure to look on online stores for cheaper options, especially when you don’t want to invest hugely in one product. Also, balance is going to be very important in getting the trend right, so do experiment with one thing at a time.
Monochrome tweed: At a number of designer houses, tweed, plaids and herringbone weaves made a comeback, but surprisingly, most of the designers liked them in black and white. Probably, monochrome black and white in such prints will be the gingham for fall 2016, but we will have to wait and see for that, given that some of the essential fashion weeks remain to be covered. For this trend, you can borrow a few ideas from Paul Costelloe, Mother of Pearl and J JS Lee, but yes, make sure to find your local brand options. Tweed weaves in two colours or a single monochrome colour should be easy to find, and if you are ready to invest, look for a genuine brand as this trend is not going anywhere in near future.
With this, we put an end to our fall 2016 trend coverage for London Fashion Week. We insist that you keep a watch on this space for more, as we will be eying some great trend picks from Milan Fashion Week next. As a bonus, we will also check the New York Fashion Week for more fall ideas. Till then, stay happy and stylish!
