The city also attracts visitors from all corners of the globe because of its rich history, museums, and landmarks. From upcoming events to secret parties, here are some must-know fashion trends in London that you need to know about right now.
Welcome to the age of asymmetry
While this trend may sound like it has been around since the dawn of fashion, it’s still going strong. In fact, many fashion houses have built their collections around the idea of embracing asymmetry. Check out the lines at Balenciaga, Celine, and Saint Laurent for starters. You’ll also see this trend reflected in a variety of ways, from oversized coats to off-the-shoulder tops and even denim styles. Asymmetrical cuts, like one sleeve or a longer hemline on one side, are also popular. This trend is easy to incorporate into your wardrobe, and alterations are easy to find, making it ideal for anyone who wants to try new styles without a major investment.
Print is still having a moment
Prints have been around forever and probably will never go away. But if you paid attention to the runways this fall and winter, you’ll notice that they’re still going strong. Whether you go bold and bright or keep it simple and clean, printed pieces are an easy way to add interest to your look. You’ll also notice that prints are moving away from the traditional floral designs and tonal patterns and going towards bolder designs and more graphic prints. Keep an eye out for animal prints, bold designs, and geometric patterns in the coming months.
Denim Has Left the Building — and Come Back Again
At one point, denim was such a staple of the fashion scene that it seemed that it would never go away. With so many different styles, fabrics, and washes available, though, denim definitely fell out of favor for a while. Recently, though, denim has been making a comeback. High-end designers have been experimenting with new denim fabrics and styles, and fashion lovers are loving it. Denim is even making its way into other pieces, like denim jackets, denim blazers, and denim shorts. No matter how you wear it, though, denim is definitely having a moment again. So, make sure you keep an eye out for where this trend is going to take you next.
Shapes Are Going to Be Big in 2022
While you might have thought that designers would start to move away from bold prints, instead, they’ve shifted towards bold silhouettes and shapes. Shape-wise, we’ve seen a lot of tops with extra detailing like shoulder pads and asymmetrical designs. We’ve also seen a lot of jumpsuits, overalls, and other one-piece designs. Shape-wise, we’re also seeing a lot of oversized silhouettes. From oversized jackets and coats to oversized overalls and jumpsuits, oversized pieces are definitely having a moment.
Londoners love their fur
While you might associate fur with winter, you’ll see it on racks across London every season. This year, though, you’ll notice that designers have tweaked their fur styles to make them more accessible to a wider variety of people. You’ll also see faux fur on the racks alongside the real deal in a variety of designs and styles. From hoods to capes, Londoners are definitely feeling their fur. While this trend will probably never fully go away, it may take on a different form next year. Keep an eye on the racks to see where this trend will go next.
Millennial-friendly brands will be worth watching
The millennial generation is growing up, and they have very specific tastes and needs when it comes to fashion. In London, you’ll find brands that specifically cater to their needs. Brands like Sinsay and Gudjon make items that are easy to mix and match, vegan-friendly, and easy to care for are gaining popularity. Other brands like Sissy Boy and Pink Parlour are also worth keeping an eye on. If you’re looking for brands that are stylish, vegan-friendly, and easy to care for, keep an eye out for these brands. They’re sure to have something for everyone.
One trend that’s been making waves in the world of fashion is the discreet sneaker. The trend has been building for the past two years and is expected to remain a key trend for the foreseeable future. Along with being discreet, the sneakers are also incredibly comfortable. As with all trends, it’s important to be on the lookout for how the style changes over time. While the sneaker trend started with low-top shoes, it’s now moving toward a more slender shoe with a high ankle that can be worn with more formal outfits.
Drop-crotch pants for women
If you’ve seen any kind of street-style coverage in the past couple of months, chances are that you’ve seen drop-crotch pants. The drop-crotch pant is a wide-legged pant that is commonly worn with a long tunic or a shirt that’s tucked in. If you do decide to try out this trend, keep in mind that it’s best to wear drop-crotch pants with a looser top. This will help to balance out the proportions of your body and keep you from looking disproportional. The drop-crotch pant is a very flexible piece that can be worn casually with a hoodie or dressed up with a blazer. The wide leg also means that you’ll be able to fit in a much larger leg shape than with traditional pants. The best part is that drop-crotch pants are very easy to make yourself, so you can have as many variations of the trend as you like.
If you’ve ever wanted to wear metallic shoes, a metallic bag, or a pair of metallic pants, this trend is for you. Metallic is a trend that has been around since last year but is expected to stay strong through 2022. Metallic is also a trend that can be used to update existing pieces in your closet. There are plenty of ways to incorporate metallic into your wardrobe, but one of the most common ways is to add a metallic top layer to an otherwise neutral outfit. This can be a jacket, a blazer, or even a shirt. The use of metallic in an outfit can vary from subtle to bold and eye-catching. It’s important to consider how much you want to incorporate it into your outfit, as it can quickly become too much when not used properly.
These trends offer a great way to stay ahead of the fashion game while also being able to express yourself through what you wear and how you present yourself to the world. Most importantly, these trends are accessible to both men and women and can be incorporated into any wardrobe. These are also trends that can be easily incorporated into existing pieces in your wardrobe without having to go out and buy all new things.
