When you're wrapping up this winter we know it's not all about keeping warm. The only way to keep the cold out this season is with oversized textured pieces. With knitwear the only rule is the chunkier the better. Quirky cut out detailing or shaggy fringing will add to the textured style of this trend. Leather, suede and fur compliment the knitwear by continuing the textile theme. Larger than life snoods and scarves are a must and you could even take up knitting, either way it's all perfect to keep you toasty this Christmas.
D&G SS10 took us all the way back to the wild wild west, minus the barns and straw seen at Chanel. Denim ruled the runway in the form of shirts, playsuits, dresses and raras, all showing that mixing it up is never a bad thing. Fringing and ruffles also added to the theme with tan accessories finishing off the look. With denim making an appearance at Chloe and Marc by Marc Jacobs, it is safe to say the rage is not dying down, and how grateful we are.
Dolce and Gabbana told Vogue they took inspiration from ''young British women and their instinctive ability to mix and match denim, streetwear and formal wear with a typical blasé attitude.'' We found exactly that at London Fashion Week. This girl teamed a denim playsuit with black tights, taking the look through the winter weather. The patterned head scarf and gold tipped boots add the perfect quirky edge we just can't get enough of.
Each season Marc Jacobs' shows are the hottest ticket in town. Spring/Summer2010 was no exception. His younger more playful and dare we say cooler line, Marc by Marc Jacobs, did not disappoint. Bursting with vibrant patterns, clashing neons and all-wrapped-up in pretty bows, what more could any girl want. The main trend that will be ruling your wardrobes come spring time is the tribal print. From jodphur pants and graphic tees, to 40s skirts and all-in-ones, wear African-inspired pattern from head to toe.
Described as a nod to 80s youth culture, this trend is already making an impact on street style. We spotted this trendy Londoner at London Fashion Week wearing a denim jacket over a patterned play-suit, bearing a striking resemblance to the Marc by Marc Jacobs vision seen only a week before at New York Fashion Week. The little black boots make the outfit work all the way into winter, so maybe you won't have to wait until summer after all.
