The sun has come out to meddle with everyone’s best laid outfit plans but London Fashion Week street style is still a spectacle not to be missed. 

Micro trends are emerging from the first days of the shows, with street stylers showing pastel shades dominate the colour wheel, there’s an insatiable appetite for bold suiting and how it’s possible to make animal print even more fierce…

Power pastels

A runway trend that’s truly taken off, pastels are no longer the preserve of wafty summer dresses. Hardy, head-to-toe outfits in rich rainbow hues are taking over the capital:

Co-ordinate with a pal for maximum impact

True tailoring

Be it loud Clueless-esque tartan, rust-coloured corduroy, neo mint flares or acid bright colour-blocking, suiting goes with everything.

Extraordinary animal print

The high street is so saturated in animal print its almost lost its rebellious edge. How to claw it back? Go bigger and bolder than everyone else, or embrace the clash.
