Styling Tricks to Steal from the London Fashion Week Fall 2015 Runways
See the three easy outfit upgrades we're copying from across the pond.
Fashion Month is in full effect. While we were still recovering from New York Fashion Week, London Fashion Week has come and gone before our eyes. As expected, the street style was killer and we swooned over the best looks that graced the catwalks. It didn't end there, either. Naturally, we rounded up the biggest fashion trends that emerged across the pond, but we also kept our eye on the designers' runway outfit styling to report back with tricks to steal for your own closet. No need to wait until fall rolls around to try out these tips. Happy styling!
Layer Pants Under a Mini Dress
We all own minidresses and we all own pants. While we usually either go barelegged or pop on a pair of tights when it's frigid outside, this simple pairing is an easy way to extend the shelf-life of your favorite frock. The tailored silhouette of a pair of trousers somehow looks incredibly chic under a shift. This pairing works best with a solid-colored bottom, but from what we saw on the runways—from sequins to fringe to florals— don't be afraid to go wild with your mini!
Jazz Up a Dark Ensemble With Red Accessories
Ah, the classic pop of color. Red accessories are a favorite of the StyleBistro team and we are so excited to see them staying on-trend for the upcoming seasons. While sticking to black can be elegant, adding a cherry shoe or handbag guarantees your ensemble isn't perceived as boring. From sneakers to gloves, there are endless opportunities to add a touch of stylish fire to your monochromatic getup.
Match the Print of your Shoes to Your Outfit
Of the three styling tricks we spotted, this one is definitely the most difficult, but by no means is it impossible. Matching the pattern of your outfit to your footwear print was an eye-catching trick we picked up from England's runways. Since most people don't buy their shoes and clothes from the same designer, we've got a fresh idea on this styling trick: go for classics. A leopard-print top and matching heel is totally doable. Same goes for snakeskin, plaid, polkadots and stripes. As long as your duo is in the same print family, you'll rock this move with ease.
So tell us, which of these runway-ready styling tricks will you try?
