Inspiration #5 Street Style Fashion Month Trends

Predictably, I love the street style during fashion month. I know it's become a sort of love/hate thing, with Suzy Menkes's now infamous Fashion Circus article and the way attention seeking is at an all time high, but I'm still firmly in the love camp. Getting dressed is a lot of fun, after all.

Seeing people wearing something I really love gets me excited, inspires me to Pin it onto my Outfit Love board and then go back when I've got 'nothing to wear'. Sometimes just the way someone wears their rings or has put two colours together can make me look at my wardrobe in a whole new way.

This fashion 'month' I have noticed a few different street style trends cropping up again and again, creeping into my subconscious. I thought instead of just a ton of pics, I would categorise them into sections.

Business Chic
Sorry about the shit title, I couldn't think of anything better. I know that typical 'office' shirts have been popular for a while now, but I don't think I've seen so many over the course of a fashion month before. Pinstripes have been a 'thing' for a while, but I feel like they are going to explode over the high street a lot more in the coming months.

Re-Worked Leather
Leather has become such a staple in everyone's wardrobe, that where it may have been 'edgy' before, it's now the norm. To update it, the shapes, lines and silhouettes have been re-worked.

Raw Denim
I believe this may have started with Acne, or a similar achingly cool Swedish brand.

Obvs this started with Burberry and their 'plankets' (half poncho, half blanket- a word my mum came across whilst flicking through Instyle and thought it was so funny she howled for about half an hour. she's got an odd sense of humour). I've seen many versions of these popping up all over fashion blogs recently. Word on the street is you can get them in Primark for a fiver.

I've been seeing more and more utility style jumpsuits on the high street, especially since Kate Moss wore one to the Topshop Unique show. Khaki is often a trend for winter but I think it's coming through on more individual pieces as a whole this year.

Last but not least,  I love this girl:
