Retro Hair Accessories Are All Over London Fashion Week
Scrunchies have never looked more stylish.
In a blink, the models made their way down the final runway and New York Fashion Week came to a close. Luckily, across the pond, London Fashion Week is in full swing. Arguably the most exciting schedule of shows during fashion month, the Brits are known for being more daring — both the designers showing their new collections and the stylish guests sitting front row taking it all in. So as expected, the London Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2023 street style beauty looks are nothing short of inspiring, blending classic motifs with current viral trends. But would one really expect anything less when Central Saint Martins, one of the world’s most prestigious fashion schools, is a stone’s throw away?
So far, statement hair accessories and vibrant hair colors are favored hairstyles among London’s style set, while smudgy eyeliner and bold matte lip colors are these guests’ preferred makeup looks. And while these beauty trends are all over LFW, the attendees are unmatched at making them all their own.
Ahead, TZR has compiled the most inspiring, must-see street style beauty moments from LFW’s F/W ‘23 season. And just two days into the show schedule, there will inevitably be more looks to come.
Statement Hair Accessories
The contrasting blue ribbon woven through these burgundy pigtails spotted at LFW created an unexpected color block moment.
In the case of hair accessories, two bows are always better than one. This guest tied her high bun with two leather bows — a cool contrast to her delicate lace-trimmed scarf and the rest of her all-white ensemble.
Two decades meet in singer Ciinderella Balthazar’s etherial look, consisting of a tight bun secured with an ‘80s silk scrunchie and a dreamy Victorian-inspired tulle dress.
Adding snap clips to a sleek, center-parted bun adds edge to the classic hairstyle. Not sure where to place the accessory? Make like this guest and place clips along your hairline.
Dress up your go-to lazy-day top knot with a silky scrunchie like this stylish guest.
How many snap clips is too many snap clips? The limit does not exist at LFW.
You could wear the name of your favorite designer on a graphic t-shirt or in your hair with a logo accessory. Here, this show-goer stacked her gold Versace clip among pearl and rhinestone ones for added visual interest.
Just like at NYFW, a swipe of bold lipstick serves as a pop of color amid the dreary winter weather in London.
This guest rounded out her classic denim-on-denim look with bold accessories: a Kelly green bag and a matte red lip.
Further proof that the Brits are masters at creating a color block moment with their makeup. Here, a cherry red lip complements this attendee’s royal blue blazer and medium wash jeans.
A little bit of regrowth isn’t necessarily a bad thing — let this guest’s lived-in pastel pink hair color serve as proof.
A vibrant blue blunt bob with bangs is a surefire way to stand out in a crowd — and capture the attention of street style photographers.
Yes, bold hair colors can be subtle. Rich burgundy dip-dyed ends are a more subdued way to partake in rainbow hues.
One of the biggest runway beauty trends at NYFW, grunge-inspired smudgy eyeliner has made its way overseas, too.
While center parts may be all the rage right now, supermodel Jourdan Dunn’s side-parted blunt bob just might convince you to switch it up.
