Street Style at The London Men’s Fashion Show

london mens fashion week 11Have you seen what the gents were wearing on the streets and shows for London Men’s Fashion Week? Well, they’ve been wearing more of the classics and less like a lumberjack. They looked dapper in fitted blazers but traditionally looser trousers and cargo pants. Here are some of the men with outstanding outfits during the LCM and a couple of ideas on what to expect during the next couple of seasons when it comes to fashion and styling.

As you can see, many of the gentlemen on the streets outside the fashion event made an effort in the way they dress. They don’t just wear whatever they first see lying around their wardrobe floor.

Reports show that menswear is growing faster than womenswear with sales worth more than £290 billion just in 2014 and now worth £448 billion worldwide according to Euromonitor. In the United Kingdom, menswear contributed £12.9 billion to the UK economy alone in 2014.

Dressing down is more of a challenge but one thing to consider is wearing just the right style of vintage without it being too exaggerated.


lfw 9The thing is – if you have style, you can go just about anywhere. Womenswear seemed to almost done quite a lot of things and the menswear department is only just starting.
