Historically, when speaking about London fashion trends, knowing what chic city dwellers were wearing was as easy as taking a look around a crowded subway carriage. Though as the last few months have totally altered the way we live, work, and socialize, this year figuring out what's trending amongst Londoners has become a slightly more digital affair. While once we used to take inspiration from the stylish women on the tube, at work events, or sitting beside us at our local restaurants, now we're turning to Instagram to see what's in.
So what are all your favorite Londoners wearing for autumn? Well, with the current climate how it is, it seems we aren't ready to give up loungewear just yet, though for autumn influencers are elevating the style with the use of tailored pieces and heeled footwear. Trench coats are, unsurprisingly, back again, however, this year's iterations often feature unique colorways. Statement collar blouses are still going strong as one of this season's key trends and influencers are also proving there's no reason your woven tote should be left behind when summer ends. Keep scrolling to see five trends the London fashion set are loving for autumn.
This is one of the biggest trends of the season, and women all over London are certainly embracing it. The statement collar has been everywhere on dresses, shirts, knits, and cardigans. Alternatively, you could purchase a detachable version and add it to any outfit of your choosing.
