London Fashion Week Men’s 2017 | The Best Street Style
With a rather iconic ring to its new name, has London Fashion Week Men’s finally stamped its mark as the mecca of menswear? The army of impeccably styled gentleman on the Strand this weekend suggests so. There is no question about it – LFW Men’s is creating waves around the fashion world. Content Manager, Jessica, reports from London to dose you up on the finest street style today’s sartorialism has to offer…
navy & green
This duo of classic colours boasts a typically English element. Add hints of emerald green to a navy get-up through statement accessories or opt for a traditional navy and green tartan on a piece of outerwear. Either way, this pairing of hues is a safe but standout choice.
The military coat is emerging once again for the upcoming seasons. With prominent lapels and a longer length adorned with metallic buttons, this soldierly coat will inject a powerful essence into any look.
An archaic trend exuding a certain extravagant bohemia fused with quirky tailoring, the dandy look is always executed seamlessly in London. In this weekend’s damp and dreary weather, these gentlemen unequivocally stood out from the crowd with flashes of bright colour.
Juxtaposed against the grey hues of London’s streets, gentlemen embraced a lighter aesthetic in the form of pastel tones. Wear sage greens and dusky pinks on softer silhouettes with fluid fabrics such as wool and neoprene blends to tackle pastels, this year.
tailoring & trainers
A most-loved combination for the modern gentleman, mixing your sneakers with tailored pieces has far become the norm, especially in London. Opt for classic leather lace-ups for a minimal aesthetic or amp things up with a metallic pair.
Not shy to a decent headpiece, Oliver Proudlock was spotted outside the BFC space in a stone number, exuding a particularly round brim. Others followed suit – teaming their outfits with a mix of woolen trilbies and suede fedoras.
A fashion classic, head-to-toe black is pretty much bulletproof. Making errors with this trend is nearing impossible. Although you tend to blend into the background slightly when donning a black ensemble, be reassured that you’ll always look suave.
A single breasted wool Epsom coat is a surefire way to polish off a look. A favourite amongst fashion’s finest gentleman, this tailored overcoat will do you no harm when it comes to your sartorial credibility. Pop the lapels up and you’re good to go.
mix & match tailoring
Sometimes, mixing things up a little works wonders. Being innovative with tailoring is most definitely one of those times. London is the king of breaking fashion rules. Want to wear your trusty denim shirt with a pair of suit trousers? Go for it! This trend allows it all.
couples who style together
A fierce and fashionable couple can be one of the most powerful images on earth. Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl, par example. If you’re lucky enough to have an elegant woman standing by your side, do her proud, dress up and tell her she looks pretty.
