Street style at Fashion Week is a lavish spectacle with an undeniable influence, a time when the industry's biggest names show the designs and trends they're approving and how they're styling them.



The outfits worn by street style stars over a month of shows offer much more inspiration than merely a suggestion to buy high-priced trophy items that are inaccessible to most. 

From showy statement pieces to wearable wardrobe classics, here's a round up of street-style inspired buys that will capture the fashion zeitgeist for months and even years to come - priced from £9.50 to £900.

  • The cool jacket

    It's already sold out online, but Frame's celebrity-magnet denim jacket is available in store at Selfridges and Harrods at the end of October.

    £450, Frame

  • Gigi Hadid street style

    As seen on Gigi, Emily Ratajkowski, Karlie Kloss, Eva Chen, Soo Joo Park...

  • Statement shades

    Round shades were spotted on many a Fashion Week show-goer and Celine wowed Paris with a bright blue pair on the runway.

    These are made for a street style pose.

  • Catwalk trend

    Ruffles were a top trend on the Fashion Week catwalks - this white blouse has just the right amount of flounce.

    £24.99, H&M

  • On point denim

    Jeans always have a place on the fashion circuit and patchwork is a current favourite. 

    £39, American Eagle Outfitters

  • Street style

    Style them out with a tweed jacket and high-neck blouse.

  • Dress to impress

    Ashley Williams, one of Alexa Chung's faves, has teamed up with John Smedley for this showstopper.

    £250, Ashley Williams x John Smedley

  • #mood

    Christopher Kane sent Crocs down the catwalk in London, confirming clunky, comfy footwear is still beautiful in fashion.

    Try Hunter's gardening clogs with a long tulle skirt a-la Kane.

    £45, Hunter

  • Back to the '90s

    Slips are a fashion favourite - whether they're worn with slouchy duster coats or over T-shirts.

    These ethical, organic dresses by John Patrick are made to be kept.

    £96, Organic by John Patrick

  • Old favourite

    Whether it's worn Kim K-style with thigh high boots and little else, over the aforementioned slip or teamed with an oversize shirt and jeans - the trench is hot. Look out for patent styles too.

    £55, Miss Selfridge

  • Kim Kardashian at Balenciaga

    Try styling it with a knotted waist, drape shoulder - or both.

  • Velvet crush

    A tricky material in a tricky colour, but this Topshop cami ticks two major trends; pink and velvet.

    Try it with jeans and that other big '90s comeback - a black choker.

    £25, Topshop

  • Limited edition

    Vetements - the fast-track to instant cool - has re-issued its iconic AW14 collection, but don't expect it to hang around.

    £300, Vetements at Style.com

  • Street style

    Balenciaga and Marni signalled the return of stirrup trousers.

  • Killer combo

    They're still as impractical as they were in the '90s, so white high heeled mules are as good a choice as any.

    Stirrup leggings: £15.99, New Look

    Mules: £174, Lanvin at LN-CC

  • Velvet blazer

    Blazers - still the fashion staple of a street style star. 

    £89.99, Zara

  • Dream Tee

    Stylist's fashion director Alexandra Fullerton favours a quirky T-shirt in her Fashion Week wardrobe.

    This design from Zadig & Voltaire's collection is top drawer.

    £75, Zadig & Voltaire

  • Charm them

    Accessories on the street style circuit tend to be low key but considered. Som'or's delicate bracelets carry a personalised silver Arabic initial, plated in 18 karat gold, with a choice of threads representing wishes such as "peace" and "joy".

    £88, Som'or

  • Street style

    There's a mini-trend for chevron prints...

  • Fashion stripes

    River Island's jumper is a year-round winner.

    £26, River Island

  • Waisted

    Loose, high waist trousers are here to stay - wear them with a T-shirt and bomber for a low-key look.

    £200, Ganni at Farfetch

  • Get lit

    Two-tone metallic clothes brightened up the Fashion Week runways. This pretty Vila bomber's a steal.

    £38.35, Vila

  • Slip-ons

    Charlotte Olympia's Cheeky Kitty slip-ons have had an emoji upgrade that makes them catnip to fashion photographers.

    £395, Charlotte Olympia

  • Street style

    Trackie bottoms are no longer confined to gym kits or after-work telly-wear.

  • Fast-track

    Kim K braved the '90s poppers version at Fashion Week but slouchy classics were a street style staple.

    £34.95, Adidas

  • The it-bag

    J.W. Anderson's Pierce was the clear winner among Fashion Week showgoers.

    £895, J.W. Anderson

  • Street style

    Wear it with...anything.

  • The classic

    Bella Freud's statement jumper is celebrating five years as a fashion favourite and shows no signs of slowing down.

    £285, Trouva

  • Investment piece

    Nothing revs up an outfit quite like leopard print. 

    These leather boots are timeless.

    £450, Dries Van Noten at Selfridges

  • Street style

    Trouser hems are now something to shout about...

  • Ruffle hems

    Zara's new season styles offer a gentle way to ease doubters into the oversize silhouettes.

    £39.99, Zara

  • The irresistable gimmick

    Bum bags, or waist belts as they're now called, have been knocking around the runways for a while. 

    Hollister's vegan leather cross-body comes in two shades.

    £9.50, Hollister

  • Street style

    Wear them on the waist or across the shoulder.

  • Trainers

    Fashion loves an arty reference - and a statement sneaker.

    £149.99, MOA at Zalando

  • Street style

    Show them off with simple trousers.
