Flying over to the British capital, we see an echo of bright optimism that we first saw during New York Fashion Week's Fall 2018 presentations. That said, prepare to wear everything colorful, printed, and shiny according to our six main takeaways from the London Fashion Week!
Can't choose which trending color to wear? There's no need to, apparently—according to designers Ashish, Mary Katrantzou, and Burberry, wearing all colors of the rainbow will be the next big thing! Shimmery and textured iterations of the colorful arc are on trend this season.
Your dull and subdued pieces should take a back seat for now because anything that shines, shimmers, and glitters are en vogue. Whether you opt for molten metallic fabrics or pieces bedazzled with sequins, this season only has one rule to follow: the bolder, the better!
Plaid is one of the heritage pieces born from the Brits, and at London Fashion Week, they're showing us exactly how to wear this timeless pattern. Simply pair your colored tartans together or contrast them with feminine florals! Just remember to wear the print in structured pieces to add a modern touch to your ensemble.

4. All Black
If color is not your thing, do know that you can still get away with black this season. Simple fabric and tailoring won't make the cut, though. Black may be back this season, but it comes with a play on texture, in structured silhouettes, and peppered with rhinestones.
Wearing furniture fabric is the new sartorial swing this fall. Wearing tapestry, however, doesn't have to look dated if you team it with contemporary pieces. Simone Rocha and Mary Katrantzou make a case for the opulent print by sending models in head-to-toe jacquard, while Christopher Kane adds lace to the style equation to balance the hefty textile.
Similar to the recent NYFW, exaggerated scarves ruled the runway. But the Brits are taking it up a notch by wearing blankets to cozy up for fall. You can gain serious style cred by donning the trend in tartan and graphic prints or textured fabric!
