Whilst most people are just thinking about taking their woolies off as they step in to spring, London Fashion Week is already looking to Autumn/winter. This famous London fashion event took place in February this year and provides us with an insight as to what will be in our high street stores toward the end of the year. With designers like House of Holland and Vivienne Westwood making an appearance we can take a sneaky peak to know what is for keeps in our wardrobe this year.
Time and time again on the catwalk we are seeing tailored and feminine fashion. Not quite the shoulder pads of the 80′that have been popular recently but smart tailoring is definitely here in a big way. Whether it is a small jacket with tailored trousers or a tailored shift dress that accentuates the waist the look is smart and refined. If you have a button shirt for instance take it all the way up to the top button to really get the look.
If you want to add a little bit of colour to the smart tailored look you can simply add a little scarf tied around the neck. This was seen many times on the catwalk with designers such as Vivienne Westwood. Choose a simple well fitted dress that comes to the knee and team it with a brightly colored square scarf that is folded in half and tied round the neck. This look is so elegant and is best worn to an elegant restaurant or out for lunch with the girls.
Tween, an up and coming fashion name from Istanbul also demonstrated the elegance of the woolen scarf when used by men, and for this winter when teamed with a well fitted coat the scarf for men can look sophisticated and sexy. The look he is to use darker muted colours and wrap the scarf many times round the neck, so you just get a collar effect without the ends hanging down. This can either be worn alone or teamed with a matching woolen hat.
The scarf is one fashion accessory that is never left out on the catwalk. London Fashion Week has demonstrated that this versatile accessory is not only up to the minute but adds glamour to any wardrobe. You can give your outfit a completely different look with the use of a neck scarf. Try experimenting with different colours and patterns to jazz up the tailored look this autumn.
