London Collections Men or LCM has fast morphed from little brother of London fashion Week into a fully-fledged fashion heavyweight. What was originally a couple of days tacked-on to the end of LFW now comprises of four days of fierce fashion and fabulous parties in the capitol. And while we can’t (officially) wear the clothes shown at LCM we’d be fools not to nick some sartorial tips from the boys. They’ve been doing it to us for years.
Here are some styling tips we’ll definitely be incorporating into our Autumn/Winter wardrobes:
THROW ON A PARKA LIKE THE GALLAGHERS
There’s nothing that says cool like the Gallagher brothers’ own brand of Manchester-swag. Their style is typified by a nod to Mod-culture and refined streetwear (sideburns optional). The easiest way to emulate this look come winter is to bag yourself a traditional parka; don’t shy away from the furriest (faux fur) of hoods. Get the look now with a lightweight version .
POWERFUL IN PASTELS
Pastel palettes don’t have to be saccharine sweet and washed-out, take note from the fellas and wear yours head-to-toe on clean shapes and sharp tailoring. Mix in some cool grey and silver tones and you’re on to a winner – we’ll definitely be investing in some dusty pink numbers.
KNOCK ‘EM OUT!
Make like a Million Dollar Baby and inject some boxing-inspired style into your wardrobe like the (very handsome) boys at Astrid Anderson. Rock some boxing-style boots, silky kimonos and sportswear-inspired long shorts for a look that’s a total knock out.
