A Tale of Two Styles at London Fashion Week

Minimalism meets its match.
Related To:

What do minimalist, androgynous, '90s-inspired, neutral outfits have in common with bright-colored, bold, feminine and flirty ones? These two styles were all over the streets of London Fashion Week. No matter where you fall on the fashion spectrum, one thing is clear: unabashed personal style will rule in 2017.

 Colorful + Fun

Statement shoes, bold prints, pretty florals and feminine silhouettes popped up everywhere. These looks and the women wearing them aren't afraid to stand out in a sea of minimalism.

 Classic + Simple

Menswear-inspired pieces, strong '90s influences and denim made a huge showing. You won't see a ruffle or spot of pink in these looks, but the cool factor is through the roof.
