It’s that time again when London comes alive with bold designs, asymmetric cuts and futuristic inspired couture. London Fashion Week kicks off today, which means It’s time to get ahead and jump on board the fashion train. To help you navigate through, we have pulled together an ultimate guide to the 2018 trends from the catwalk and where to bag an alternative at the London Designer Outlet (LDO) in Wembley Park.
Designers have raided the colour wheel this year and are pushing boundaries with bold primary colours. Head to toe emerald green, canary yellow and pillar box red are just a few that will be sweeping into spring this year. The key to this look is to match the accessories, so head to Guess in LDO to get a bright matching handbag and rock this statement style.
When you think of pastel colours, middle England may come to mind, but this year they are set to be a pretty powerful fixture on the catwalk. However, there is one shade that is standing out this year, and that is lilac. M&S Outlet is embracing this trend and has a beautiful collection of pastel pieces that will help you recreate this look.
Take it back to the 80’s
Puff sleeves, high-waisted jeans and white slouchy boots have made a comeback. Think big shouldered printed dresses and loud graphic designs. Head to H&M and check out some of their bold printed shirts and jumpers and then cross over into to GAP for a range of high waisted jeans
Checks may be one for winter, but they are rearing their head into Spring this year so take a trip to Next and M&S Outlet and discover some great finds. You will have to be quick though as bargains get snapped up very quickly!
Palm beach Swagger
Think a mash-up of rainbow colours, swirly bright patterns and turbans. Inspired by the 1960’s palm beach socialite, this style is fun and flashy and thanks to the incorporation of head wraps, perfect for bad hair days!
All hail the rise of the statement shorts. Designers like Louis Vuitton and Saint Laurent’s are playing around with high waisted leather designs and silky boxer short styles. Head to Religion, Guess and Replay at LDO for great high street alternatives.
