Guests At London Fashion Week All Agree That These Shoes Are A Must Have
You need a pair of pointed-toe mules.
Fashion Month is well underway. New York Fashion Week just ended and now it’s time to shift your attention to across the pond for London Fashion Week. What makes LFW so highly anticipated is the schedule consisting of beloved fashion houses that are presenting, which includes JW Anderson, Erdem, Versace, Simone Rocha, and Christopher Kane. And while a few brands have cancelled their shows in honor of Queen Elizabeth II, you can still expect to see fashion gals celebrating the week of high-fashion (and you’ll be able to peruse the best street style at London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2023, below).
So far, attendees have leaned into the “anything goes” attitude that characterizes the city’s style and have opted for all things maximalist. Some fashionistas, for example, ensured they stood out on the scene by opting for bold hued monochromatic ensembles. Others have created show-stopping looks by giving the beloved Canadian tuxedo a Londoner twist — they’ve styled corsets, oversized bombers, and patchwork pieces with their timeless denim sets.
