Trendspotting: Exploring Couture Week's Street-style
Naturally, couture week delivers some of the biggest looks in fashion (literally) and while the sequins, feathers and gloriously over the top catwalk styles are something to behold we’ve taken our inspiration from the streetwear to decide what to wear over the summer months.
The sartorial pallet cleaner: neutrals. Dressing in your best beige, off-white (the colour) and barely-there pinks is the best way to breeze through summer. Mix your textures to keep things interesting, layer neutrals on neutrals or pick out a statement bag to get your colour fix. This trend is a sure-fire way to get you feeling summery.
Big sleeves made a big appearance, documenting them feels almost un-newsworthy as it's a style that has been popular for several seasons. However, when it features this heavily in people's personal style, it is worth falling in love with all over again. From sequined puff-balls to linen shirts: there is a sleeve for absolutely every style and every weather.
When things get hot, fashion gets comfortable, at least, this year it did. Loose fitting trousers were another mainstay of streetwear dressing. From bedazzled sequin trousers with a decedent feather trim to tailored to-the-floor trousers the approach to the garment was clear: tight fits aren’t for summer.
