Top Trends London Fashion WeekThe greatest hits from LFW 2011
London is known as the rogue city amongst the Big Four Fashion Weeks, and that's why we love it. From up-and-coming designers crushing it on the runway to established designers unafraid to push the envelope, the trends, memorable moments, and stand-out looks to come out of London Fashion Week are always some of our favorites. We've flipped through the shows, and are glad to present the five trends we can't wait to adopt from across the pond.
Extra-Long Fringe — Boho fringe has taken a futuristic turn. This extra-long fringe almost look like an extra-luxe hula skirt!

Over-the-Top Embellishment — Whether jewel-encrusted, beaded, or bedazzled, clothes looked more like the spilled contents of a jewelry box.
Fashion East spring '12; Matthew Williamson spring '12; Mulberry spring '12; Temperley London spring '12
White Suits — Every woman needs a sleek, modern suit for their wardrobe. The stark white ones on the runway for spring had us contemplating a new hue to explore a la Bianca Jagger.
Antonio Beraldi spring '12; Aquascutum spring '12; Temperley London spring '12; Todd Lynn spring '12
High-Shine Metallic — Looking like the folders you to have in high school, high-shine metallics are almost iridescent. We love the look of a structured blazer or skirt to counteract the playful fabric.
Acne spring '12; Antonio Berardi spring '12 ; Giles spring '12; Topshop Unique spring '12
Arts-and-Crafts Prints — Prints were everywhere this season, but these ones in specific were chaotic in all the right ways. We don't remember making anything as spectacular as these in Arts and Crafts class, but we wish we had!
