The street style scene can be incredibly theatrical, with guests having at least three outfit changes in a day in the back of their chauffeured cars, pieces borrowed by designers for an hour or so, and outfits chosen for their wow factor.

Out of all of the international fashion weeks, London always has a more relaxed and practical energy—maybe it’s the high chance of rain, or the likelihood that you’ll be spending a couple of hours stood in a freezing warehouse in Hackney. Most editors, stylists, and buyers tend to wear their minimalist staples, such as jeans or black tailored trousers, as a base, and then add some more interest with accessories or a few trend-led pieces.
There were a few trends we saw, again and again, this London Fashion Week, namely bomber jackets, the leather motocross trend, wide-leg jeans, and oversized silhouettes. If you are in need of some fresh outfit inspiration, then let the below ten looks help guide some of your styling decisions or new purchases for the season ahead.
