Fashion Week: The Street Style Edit - 3 Must Know Trends

Fashion Week: The Street Style Edit

Take note. These are the three most talked about trends as seen on the streets this Fashion Week.

Words by The Insider

When the international style set descend upon the fashion capital, it’s inevitable that the pavements become the runway. And, how better to master the new season trends than with a master class from those that wear it best? Here’s every trend you need to rule the new season.

Work It

Good news; utility is here to stay. Clean lines and fluid silhouettes are borrowed from workwear, elevated with details such as multiple patch pockets and zips which lend a functional yet high fashion edge.

 

Look to jumpsuits and technical outerwear to make a statement, as seen on the runway at Calvin Klein, Todd Snyder and Tibi. For a more low key vibe, the utility shirt is a key piece that can easily be elevated with a structured trouser.

Animal Instinct

There’s no mistaking it; the street set went wild for animal print at Fashion Week. Whether leopard print, zebra stripes or snake patterns, the key to this trend is confidence. Don’t be afraid to wear the trend from head-to-toe, pair clashing spots and stripes of all sizes; after all, rules are meant to be broken.

 

On the runway we saw suiting at Tom Ford, splashes of colour and print on print at Roberto Cavalli; the king of the jungle himself.

Modern Heritage

This season, fashion week seen a fresh update to heritage tweed and traditional plaid. Think sleek tailoring, sharp shoulders, and an ever-equestrian palette of rich tan, charcoal grey with the added addition of berry reds.

 

The new era of female empowerment sees the masculine suit reinterpreted with emphasis on broad
shoulders and slim waists. Sartorial cloths such as tweed, wool gabardine and soft twill accentuate
sharp cuts. Simple cuts are key to integral pieces such as the pencil skirt.
