London Fashion Week came to a close yesterday, signaling that we’re now halfway through Fashion Month. If there’s one thing we noticed, it’s that London’s most fashionable attendees took their coat games seriously. Shiny patents, structural masterpieces, and plenty of menswear inspiration were seen everywhere.
Neutrals reigned supreme, with a pop of color—sometimes subtle, sometimes not so much—always present to tie the look together. Gray check prints were paired with none other than 2018’s color of the year, ultra violet, while khaki trench coats were accented with bright red accessories. Overall, it was the perfect execution of balance between statement-making color and ever-so-chic neutral wardrobe staples.
Below, check out some of the most sartorially pleasing looks we saw on the streets of the London shows. Next up? Milan!
