It’s true that florals will always top the fashion charts. However, it’s the variations each year that we live for. This time, at London Fashion Week, the florals were a paradox of dark and delicate, that came printed on sheer fabrics that made it possible to think of them as sexy as opposed to sweet. See, new horizons!

It’s a checkmate
When are we ever over stripes and checks? They keep doing their rounds, in different colours, sizes and textures. So it’s squares for this season at London Fashion Week, and we don’t mean gingham, we mean big oversized checks that are sure to make you stand out if only you dared to wear them.

All ruffled up
Ruffles have been in and out of fashion ever since the 18th century as if the fashion world couldn’t make up its mind whether to call them a fad or a classic. We’re not complaining though, for they add romance and drama to any outfit that would’ve been just another shift dress out of the wardrobe.

This season, London Fashion Week has an air about being loud and bold. You know what says that best—dramatic accessories? While we’re all for pretty little studs, it’s on days when our outfits get boring that we look for embellishments to liven them up. Ergo earrings!

Patchwork & appliqué
These never go out of style. And when designers with vivid imaginations take it upon themselves to reinvent the trend, it’s definitely here to stay. Besides, who doesn’t like a little dimension added to their outfits aka 3D? You’ll be hoarding on these pieces sooner than you think.
