Fashionistas Experiment with Jean Fits at London Fashion Week

Street style stars at London Fashion Week stepped out in denim that followed their own style versus trends. And with rain and wind putting a damper on most days of week, show goers relied on classic blue jeans to get them through long days.

Straight and relaxed-fit jeans with sliced hems were the go-to bottoms. The jeans were often cropped at the ankle, showing off footwear like snake-print boots, kitten-heel boots and grandad loafers worn with fashion socks. These jeans were paired with classic check coats, blazers and cozy cardigans.

Others cuffed their jeans—a styling choice that was both fashionable and functional on puddle-soaked sidewalks.

Utility continued in the form of both loose-fitting bleached jumpsuits and flight suits with a cinched waist. Others jeans bore large front patch pockets with D-ring closures. Prominent pockets also added a workwear look to wide-leg jeans and cropped boxy jean jackets.

Fashion week goers also introduced a ’70s feeling to their outfits through denim. Flare and bell-bottom jeans added a bohemian feeling to outfits that spanned snake-print car coats to multi-plaid wool coats. Boyfriend jeans patched up with contrast fabrics and other bric-a-brac captured the handcrafted look that would trend a week later on the Milan runway.
