According to the unofficial guidelines of beauty, an extravagant hairdo should come with a more demure face — and a bold makeup look should come understated hair. London Fashion Week is known for following those rules in the most elevated and timeless way possible. That's why London Fashion Week Spring 2021's best beauty trends are full of both continuity and the occasional contrast.
With bobs and bare faces, like at Emilia Wickstead, and more dramatic undone 'dos coupled with easy-to-recreate swipes of color at Marrknull, London Fashion Week is marked with looks that are so on par for these simpler times. And better yet, many of them are achievable at home and with products that you already have in your vanity. The looks prove what we always knew: If you're on the hunt for more practical and classic beauty inspo, London Fashion Week is the ideal resource.
Ahead, check out the looks straight off the digital runways — and pastures — of London Fashion Week that are as unpredictable as 2020 itself.
