Men’s London Fashion Week marked the first major fashion event of 2020, and it sure did kick off the new decade with a great start. The January edition saw the return of numerous favourite fashion designers along with a number of emerging designers who delivered some fantastic shows.
We’ve analysed and rounded up four of our favourite trends that were spotted down the catwalk this fashion week, just for you. It’s time to refresh your wardrobes ready for a new decade of stylish outfit choices!
Straps, belts, harnesses and more:
From a variety of harnesses to lengthy straps and belts, garments on the runway were tailored with all kinds of attachments. Suits were fastened with oversized safety pins, shirts were finished with chunky belts and straps, and let’s not forget the side adjusters and tightly fitted blazers that made an appearance. Step outside your comfort zone and accessorise your outfit to ensure you turn heads in 2020.
From large checks to small checks, it was hard to miss a wide variety of checks being strutted down the catwalk this January. The patterns on show were bright, playful and energetic. Channel your inner Scot and pull off a full check outfit this new year!
Denim, denim, and more denim…
What’s a London Fashion Week without spotting a number of denim pieces being showcased down the runway? This season we saw less of the bleached out and acid wash styles and much more classic, functional denim. Now’s the time to dig deep to the back of your wardrobes and give your favourite denim pieces a new lease of life!
Leather (and lots of it!)
Leather is one of the most commonly used materials by British brands and it was in abundance on the catwalks this London Fashion Week. Trench coats, oversized blazers, wide-leg trousers, jackets, the list goes on. The statement piece you should be buying, however, is a pair of slim-cut black leather trousers – the perfect item to make any outfit stand out. There is no doubt that Oxford Streets high street stores will be covered head to toe in leather in the coming months!
