London Fashion Week: The Look For Less

With Fashion Month in full swing, Impact Style now brings you the best looks from London for Autumn Winter 2015/16. But here’s the best bit: we’ve trailed the high street to get ahead of the trends and let you know what’s available now and will last you through the next couple of seasons. That’s what I call student friendly fashion. 

Christopher Kane / Ebay

Oh yeah, I’m serious folks. Mary Katrantzou featured silk scarves à la war-torn Poland but our boy Chris took granny chic to a whole new level. Expect this trend to make some serious rounds. If you dare try the look, head over to Ebay which stocks them at the ludicrous price of £1.99 for a 4 pack. I also spotted Boots in Portland stocking these babies, if you fancy picking one up with your meal deal.

Ashish / Feminist Apparel

Words on clothes – you either love it or hate it. Now we won’t go into detail here about how the afro wigs at Ashish may not be entiiirely appropriate but the collection is rather stunning in it’s entirety. I’m not sure if anyone would ever call Kanye a feminist, but this seemed appropriate. If you go for mouthy clothing, make a statement. Feminist Apparel stocks Ts and sweats with all manner of funny and righteous motifs. This one is $22, but they ship internationally.

Sophia Webster / Clarks

I have a lot of faith in the Mary Jane. There have been beautiful jewel-heeled versions coming out the last few seasons from Miu Miu and Dolce & Gabbana. For a cheaper pair, you can opt for these from New Look, and bedazzle them yourself with stones like these from Amazon. Any excuse to whip out the hot glue gun!

Mary Katrantzou / Kiko

A red lip never goes out of style – this rich berry shade as seen on the lovely Lineisy Montero at Mary Kantrantzou can be picked up easily. We found this one here at Kiko at the student friendly price of £3.90. Ensure long lasting colour with a lip liner, too.

Alexander McQueen / Silver Linings

Black? Check. Lace? Check. Hardware? Check. Watching the McQueen show is always a little bit sad, but Sarah Burton did a beautiful job this season with her array of Dali-esque designs and magical quilt outerwear. Get the vibes with this cute piece from Silver Linings at £68.

Burberry / Onitsuka

I could think of no one but The Bride herself when I spotted these on the Burberry catwalk. Frankly, Bailey hasn’t pulled anything astounding out of the bag for eight or nine seasons but these are pretty damn cool. The colours are reversed but even the track pant is the same… Black and yellow, black and yellow… (Schuh might stock these too, where you can use your student discount. Use it while you still can, final years!)
