London Fashion Week - top trends

Tue 23 Feb 2010

London Fashion Week - top trends

The spring/summer season isn't fully underway and already we're previewing autumn/winter looks at London Fashion Week. But worry not, this year trends have a long lifespan - it's more about investment pieces than fast-fashion - and the styles we're wearing now show no sign of going anywhere. So, what can we look forward to seeing a bit more of?

Sequins and gold - As an antidote to the recession blues, opulence dressing is here to stay. Clements Ribero added bling to footwear and boho dresses with sequin detailing, PPQ showcased some rather fabulous gold hot pants and Mulberry went for subtle studded embellishments.

Neutrals and pastels - Shades will continue to be subtle and soft with neutrals in cream, beige and browns, candy-coloured pastels and, if Mulberry's collection is anything to by, a whole lot of charcoal.

Period romance - Take a style cue from period dramas with full skirts, textured materials and romantic embellishments. Bringing it back to basics, the prairie look isn't going anywhere either.

Bows - Bows may be a central part of the 'Alice in Wonderland' micro-trend, but they're not just a flash in the fashion pan. Henry Holland's models strutted down the catwalk with bows in their hair and Orla Kiely prettied-up dresses with bow prints and detailing.

Shoes with socks - Perfect to wear with bare legs in spring or over tights in the colder months, pretty socks make up one of this year's cutest trends: The look works best with sandals, Mary Janes and wedges.

What the celebs wore

The Sugababes - The three girls pulled off very individual looks in the front row, each working one of this season's hottest trends. Amelle went for the underwear as outerwear look - try our zip-front corset with skinny jeans. Jade looked cute in an LWD - spot-on for the Little Miss Perfect trend encapsulated in our wrapover ric rac bow dress. And Heidi opted for sheer romantic ruffles in a top similar to our silk chiffon blouse.


Nicola Roberts - The Girls Aloud fashionista rocked an 80's inspired classic casual look in stone-wash skinnies, red Chanel jacket and cream quilted bag. Get the look in our faded skinny jeans, red silk chiffon blouse and stud quilted hobo bag.

Olivia Palermo - New York scenester Olivia Palermo got graphic at LFW, mixing and matching abstract prints for a truly on-trend look. Check out our asymmetric digital print dress in this season's bright neons.
