I Keep Seeing These 5 Outfit Formulas Every Time I Leave the House

It's our job to have our finger on the buzzer when it comes to spotting the trending outfits that are proliferating in the big bad world of fashion. With London Fashion Week coming to a close, we have even more ammo to help us work out which ensembles have captured the imaginations of the masses so far in 2020.

We're in that tricky time of year when we're finally coming out the dark depths of winter but aren't quite reaching the balmy spring temperatures yet. The solution? Clever and versatile layers—whether that's a roll-neck under a dress, a jumper under a light blazer or jeans tucked into knee-high boots. We're also picking up on the odd hint of spring pastel. Think soft pink and mellow yellow. So if you're in need of a little style inspiration, scroll down to see and shop the five outfit formulas that are spiking right now.

Oversize Shacket + Tailored Trousers

Style Notes: If in doubt, go head-to-toe pale yellow. It's a great way to incorporate colour with a minimalist twist. 

Checked Blazer + Jeans + Knee-High Boots

Style Notes: The jeans-tucked-into-boots look was one favoured by than Princess Di, and it's been inspiring the fashion crowd this season. Bring it up to date with an oversize checked blazer. 

Smock Dress + Chunky Boots

Style Notes: We're swooning big time over Monikh's Cecilie Bahnsen smock dress, which is instantly given an edge via a pair of chunky black boots. 

Colourful Suit + Sneakers

Style Notes: We lost count of the number of fashion editors we saw in suits this fashion week. Take yours out of "office" territory by buying one in pastel pink.

Camel Coat + Leather Trousers

Style Notes: A classic camel coat is kicked into 2020 with a pair of leather trousers, as seen on Sylvie Mus.
