7 of the easiest trends to recreate from London Fashion Week 2022

by Сашка

London Fashion Week has wrapped up after another successful year of showcasing the designs that’ll shape the fashion world in the coming few months. Some trends we’ve already seen starting to muscle through into the mainstream — others are brand new and bound to start becoming buzz-worthy as the new season takes hold.

If you’re looking to start switching up your wardrobe for spring, here’s how to get ahead of the fashion curve with these seven LFW fashion trends.

1. Coveted cuts

By far one of the biggest trends at London Fashion Week was using sharp, cut-out segments to create unusual and streamlined shapes. This trend has been seen before, but designers breathed new life back into it with cuts around the rib cage and in the centre of the chest — as seen in pieces by Nensi Dojaka, who combined her signature award-winning style with shoestring details and spaghetti straps.

H&M Cut-out blouse

If you’re looking for a single fashion piece to see you through spring/ summer ‘22, let this crop top be it. Versatile enough for brunch with the girls as well as nights out on the town, this blouse is the definition of low effort, maximum effect. We love the split-hem sleeves, on-trend cut-out and the drawstring detail, which can be tied at the front or pulled elegantly around the back for a choice of two looks. All of these fashion-forward details make this piece look far more expensive than its modest pricetag.

2. Bridgerton bustiers

Bustiers and corsets on the catwalk are nothing new, but this London Fashion Week saw designers being more experimental with the trend. Embellishments like feathers and sequins gave the look an on-trend ‘22 twist that champions maximalism and promises to be the focal point of any outfit.

Kallie Seamless Corset Vest

If you’re still easing into the corset trend, this Urban Outfitters offering is just bold enough to steal the show without pushing you too far out of your comfort zone. There’s no bodice-style lace or clip fastening so it doesn’t have that Bridgerton authenticity, but we like the piped seam details down the centre and under the cups. Wear with wide-leg jeans and an oversized jacket for a happy balance of styles.

3. Revival of the fittest

Upcycling (or recycling) has been a fashion industry buzzword for a while, but brands have been loosely claiming to be sustainable — until now. Up-and-coming fashion prodigy Conner Ives, whose raw materials are made up of 75% secondhand clothes, has been the designer to watch this season, and his show at London Fashion Week didn’t disappoint. His runway debut has sparked a wider conversation about how brands can use the textiles and garments already available to create new and bespoke pieces.

Vestiaire Collective Acne Studios Wool Scarf

You save £44 (24.44%)£180

Vestiaire Collective is an online fashion destination that sells second-hand authentic designer goods at fair prices. Everything is one-of-a-kind, so you’ll have to act fast to snap up a pre-loved bargain. We particularly like this wool Acne scarf — it’s very similar to the viral Acne scarf that’s all over Instagram right now, but this has a more subtle logo and a less bold colourway that we like a lot.

4. Society girl

If Elle Woods or Blair Waldorf would wear it, chances are it made an appearance in a London Fashion Week show. Accessories including chunky headbands and mini sunglasses were paraded down the runway, alongside wool vests, low-rise jeans and block-heel mules. Washed-out hues are the motif of the moment, and this trend tends to overlap with the Y2K styles that have been rising fast over the past couple of months.

Matt & Nat adel vegan micro tote bag in blue

With just enough space for a tube of lip gloss and a flip phone, this top-handle micro tote bag is the ultimate Society Girl accessory of the early noughties. The pale blue colourway is en vogue, while the optional crossbody strap adds convenience if you choose to use this as a going-out bag. We like that this ticks a lot of style boxes, but it’s timeless enough that it won’t look dated at the end of a season cycle.

5. Hot pink to make the fashionistas wink

Designers across the board have been leaning into pink at this year’s London Fashion Week, with magenta mini skirts, fuschia footwear and bubblegum blazers all cropping up on the catwalks. It ties into the ‘Society Girl’ trend above, but in this case, it’s not the pastels that reign supreme; instead, it’s the bolder, the better. Eudon Choi, best known for a love of neutrals, sent models out in blindingly bright pink and we can expect to see that shade taking centre stage in next season’s trends, too.

Ted Baker Ruffle Detail Mini Shirt Dress

All eyes will be on you in this elegant number from River Island. Its flattering figure and one shoulder design have a haute-couture look that belies its fairly reasonable price tag. We like the uniqueness of the ruching too.

6. Demure designs

Frilly collars, dainty bonnets and crisp gloves came out to play at a few shows at LFW, most notably in Bora Aksu’s latest collection. A mix of Royal blue and tea-party pink were the central focus, with pretty pops of lilac where the two shades intersected. Designers also used this trend to play with textures, layering lace alongside thick fabrics to juxtapose the mix of old and new styles.

Linen Smocked Babydoll Long Sleeve Mini Dress

You save £29 (64.44%)£45

The long sleeves coupled with the square neckline give this dress a classic look that’s modernised by the skirt length. We love the soft green hue and breezy linen fabric that keeps this piece casual and effortless. A bare leg and some knee-high boots will strike a nice balance between sexy and modest.

7. Big up the blazer

The blazer goes jumbo-sized for the new season, with broad shoulders, wide lapels and chunky sleeves popping up at several shows. The tailoring trend never really goes away, but we’re happy to see a fresh twist on an old classic that leaves us with more options for back-to-office outerwear.

4th & Reckless tailored open back blazer co-ord in blue

Padded shoulders and double-breasted front give this blazer retro appeal, and we like the masculine lines and sharp lapels. Side pockets and a button-close open back ensure a comfortable and convenient fit, while the powder blue finish means you can pair this with pretty much anything in your wardrobe if you want to polish up your look with a fashion-focused item.
