From Paris to Milan, New York to London, each season, designers use the ready-to-wear runway shows as a means to display the new clothing and accessories that their brands have to offer. And although we revel in the chance to view the new collections, here at Who What Wear UK, we take fashion week as an opportunity to observe more than just new clothes.
Each season, runway shows provide a myriad of styling and outfit inspiration, as brands find unique and distinctive ways to display their debuting items. Whether it be styling a cardigan as a base layer or a silk scarf as a statement belt, each runway show often brings with it an interesting new way to style a piece of clothing that we’ve never thought of before.
Of course, the S/S 20 runway shows were no exception. From Louis Vuitton pairing a sweater vest over an exaggerated puff sleeve shirt to Khaite’s styling of straight-leg jeans underneath a minidress, the ready-to-wear collections provided a plethora of outfit ideas that we can’t wait to try.
And the best part? Many of the styling tricks seen on the runway can be re-created using the staples you already have in your wardrobe. If you own a roll-neck jumper and a button-up shirt, you can easily emulate the styling from Victoria Beckham’s show, while a cropped cardi and waist belt can let you live out your dream of being a Chanel model. It really is that simple.
