Although London Fashion Week is all wrapped up for another year, our shopping wish lists for spring/summer certainly aren’t. With show after show of beautiful garments and amazing street style to be more than envious of, who can blame us for wanting a whole new wardrobe thanks to LFW!?!
One of my favorite fashion blogs Five, Five, Fashion have put together some of the key trends spotted at LFW and, in accosication with Travelex I have chosen one of those trends to show you how to get the look for less on the highstreet!
Colour blocking – This trend is all about simply styling of key garments and colours to make a statement that is laid and chic.
Here’s my three ways to wear colour blocking and get the look for less on the high street for under £100.
| One Piece |
Take inspiration from designers such as
Jean-PierreBraganza and Natasha Zinko and colour block in one classic piece. The colour of the season is royal blue and makes a statement on a wide legged jumpsuit. Style with simple nude sandals and a contrasting, colour-pop clutch for a night on the town or layer a simple, white blouse underneath for a chic day look.
Jumpsuit – Boohoo £25
Blouse – MissSelfridge £30
Shoes – Next £28
Total – £83
| Statement Jumper |
Pair two simple pieces together to create a chic colour block statement. A bright coloured jumper tucked into neutral cigarette pants or a key denim piece will help you nail this trend.
Margaret Howell, showed us how it’s done at LFW this year.
Jumper – ASOS £35
Trousers – Joules £29.95 (SALE)
Belt – Next £14
Bag – H&M £7.99
Total – £86.94
| The Coat |
The pink coat is still a big trend and was well loved by the fashionistas attending LFW this year.
Pair it with a contrasting colour dress and some knee high boots for a retro 70’s look.
Coat – River Island £60 (Sale)
Total – £99.99
