For those of us who are into fashion, people-watching is both an enjoyable sport and an information-gathering exercise. I know I'm not the only one who sources most of their style inspiration from well-dressed strangers on the street (and on Instagram), but observing passing outfits can also teach us which trends we should be paying extra-close attention to.
Since London Fashion Week took place in mid-February (followed by Milan and Paris), our team has noticed a number of defining looks emerging from the capital. While the beauty of street style is that it's varied and unexpected, there's no denying the popularity of certain shapes, colour palettes and cult designer buys. From the noughties trouser dominating the season to the updated take on denim, we're pretty sure you'll be just as excited about these pieces as everyone else seems to be.
It's not in our nature to gatekeep our fashion findings—so, scroll on to see the 11 items Londoners are loving these days, then shop our top picks below.
Style Notes: Frankly, we've been a little surprised by the sheer volume of frilly-tiered skirts we've spotted on the streets of London. But it's a pleasant surprise; as we enter brighter days, this is precisely the kind of fun fashion we're into.
