Spotted at LFW: 5 Autumn/Winter Fashion Trends and how to wear them

It’s an odd, though, very dope sight, seeing Alexander McQueen dresses standing next to a pair of Off-Whites, discussing what the moda of the next 6 months will look like, right here in your local kebab shop. For just 2 weekends a year, during London Fashion Week, it’s reality. Stylish people on every corner, lurking fashionistas and a general vibe of surfing on the tip of the trend wave. Ahead of the curve of all that is to come out in the next few months, outside we get a preview of it all.

LFW has come and mysnapp seized the opportunity to capture the raddest streetwear and high-end outfits on the streets. We’ve focussed on the peeps that did their homework and rocked up wearing apparel along the lines of the coming (street) style trends of September and beyond.

mysnapp has captured the most stylish trendsetters that we ran into and we’ve curated these to show off the style trends for this Autumn/Winter 2018.

Friday afternoon we saw Nicola Formichetti bringing back fun prints, neon colours and sequin elements into Nicopanda SS19 collection. Although the show was full of excitement and new inspiration, we were more interest on what the street wore.

Here are 5 autumn and winter fashion trends that got us really excited, presented by random people that hit the nail right on the head.

SUITS and oversized jackets

Whatever the occasion, suits are allowed all access during AW18. Suits are now presented in a more fun and quirky way than ever during, and available in every colour, texture and pattern. Go topless underneath for a sexy yet classy look, or opt for a bright co-ord paired with some chunky trainers like presenter Amal Fashanu did.

Oversized suits were seen in different textures and colours from plaid and floral patterns, bold colours, and beautiful velvet numbers.

BRIGHT BLOCK COLOURS

Models like Hailey Baldwin and Kendall Jenner have been spotted rocking loads of bright coloured pieces this season and it’s certainly not just for the sunny holidays. The grey, London skies actually formed a beautiful, high-contrast backdrop for the colourful outfits. The trendsetters that were out and about during LFW19 knew how to make a proper statement, with bright colours and bold cuts. Think vivid reds, neon-pinks, purples, and blues when mixing it up this winter.

Warning: bright colours tend to bring out the sas!

80’s STYLE

The 80s have been hangin’ with us for a while and they’re here to stick around. Oversized blazers, double denim, ruffles and exaggerated shoulders are totally in. Hmm, big shoulders… where did we see that before?

Also think chunky sneakers, bum bags and cycling shorts. For more inspiration on where to buy the latest bumbags, check out our trending page.

ANIMAL PRINT

These raucous prints seem to be everywhere at the moment. On the runway we’ve seen them on Victoria Beckham and Tom Ford, and high-street stores like Topshop and Zara are going wild for it. But, don’t worry: no animals were harmed in the making. Fashion week is fur-free this year!

Brands are taking print inspo from leopard, zebra and snake. It’s a trend that can be kept simple by pairing with black or white colour blocks, or, if you really want to turn heads, try adding a neon pink coat like street styler Suzanne Spiegoski did (see below). Check out the mysnapp trending page for more exciting animal print inspired clothing.

PLAID

The f-rows this London Fashion Week are literally full of anything and everything plaid. From matching to clashing patterns, from contrasting bright colours to more subtle tones. From smart shirts and suits to casual dresses. Go for a full plaid suit, or just one item to clash with the rest. This unisex trend is surprisingly easy to nail this AW18 and it is sure to get people talking.
