How amazing has London Fashion Week been so far? Between the Topshop Unique show yesterday and the epic Burberry show this morning, I’m amazed! Not only has my breath been taken away by the amazing collections coming down the runway (we’re taking lace, feathers, and leather galore), but I’m also completely taken with the chic London street style!
My feed over the weekend was full of the most classic yet trendy looks – of course all topped off with a classic trench or overcoat. It’s been so inspiring! One element of European style that I’ve always tried to emulate in my personal style is their ability to look sophisticated and pulled together, but never over-done or with too much effort. They have a way of being feminine and completely casual and comfortable all at the same time.
After studying look after look, I finally narrowed down some of the trends I saw consistently. One way to embody the casual chic look into everyday style is to incorporate an element of menswear. Lucky for us this season, tomboy is the new chic! In this article by Who What Wear, stylists are predicting that this fall, our skinny jeans and slim fitting pants will take a backseat to menswear trousers, wide-leg pants, and cropped flares. This makes that European style easier to achieve than ever. For this look I simply swapped out my go to pair of tight fitting black trousers for this less structured pair. Pop on a little pair of booties and voila! You’re good to go!
