It may be Autumn/Winter 2016 we were following on the catwalks of London Fashion Week but fashion revellers were no strangers to colour, patterns and textures. Sporting an eclectic array of materials and layering items of clothing, it was evident that the people of London were dressed to impress. The vintage, classy look was adorned with many chunky scarfs to ward off the autumn chill and layering t-shirts, jackets and cardigans became essential. Accessories were a feature piece with many donning an eye-catching hat or statement handbag and jewellery.
However, popular eye-catching colour combinations did not mean that there weren’t also people who could rock monochrome looks. Playing with textures and accents to break up the monotony of colours, aspects such as fringing on ankle boots, a fabulous embellished chequered coat from Balmain and a lime green skinny scarf were incorporated into outfits. A muted colour palette also allows for a welcome flash of colour from statement pieces like pristine white sneakers, cream longline waistcoats and smart navy brogues. Some people at LFW even used their pets as accessories to complement their outfits and we saw dogs wearing matching Burberry-esque trench coats, although more often than not, the dogs wore it better.
