The current pandemic has had a huge impact on the fashion industry and has completely changed they dynamics of fashion week. Whilst a small handful of fashion houses have still managed to do runway shows, the majority are turning to films – and I am really enjoying it. The new fashion show perspective tells a story through carefully directed imagery whilst showcasing the inspiration behind each collection.
London Fashion Week AW21 ended this week and the creatives seem to have set their sights on a positive year ahead with a return to real-life celebrations and a renewed appreciation of nature. So let’s take a look at some of the top trenfds to add to your wardrobe.

Think 90’s spaghetti straps and cross overs. Whilst we may be layering up over the winter months, underneath we are baring it all. Tops will be getting strappier and thinner with a more delicate touch.

A common summer trend is making a winter comeback. Period florals and a mix of more understated elegant prints (Emilia Wickstead) is seen across classic cut dresses and suit co-ord pieces. Some prints are leaning toward the 60s/70s era whilst other designers have opted more a more modern and stripped back print.

Silhouettes are being more volume, from delicate ballooned sleeves to full puff dresses. Such an elegant and simple trend to add to your wardrobe thats perfect for all occasions.

Chunky knits and checks are in for this coming autumn and winter giving us ultimate preppy chic vibes. A mixture of tartan prints paired with collars and button down collars. We are also seeing a lot of gorgeous red highland check numbers in the mix pointing to a return of normality and real-life party wear.
All Over Leather
One of my favourite AW looks is leather. Boots, dresses leggings you name it! I want it all! I always think leather transforms an outfit giving a stylish edge and instantly looks more expensive. Head to-toe leather is in this upcoming winter season but did it ever go out of fashion?
