3 Styles from London Men’s Fashion Week and How to Get Those Looks on a Budget
London Fashion Week Men’s 2017 Fall/Winter collections brought a plethora of styles from various designers. Some designs were sleek and modern, others gave off bohemian and retro vibes and some looks were composed of contemporary street style.
The toughest part about being a fashion addict on a tight budget (such as myself) is getting that runway look without breaking the bank. However, we can and should always use Fashion Week as inspiration. Straight off the London runways, we’ve chosen three looks that can easily be adapted and imitated by a small budget.
J.W. Anderson – Artistic Aesthetic
J.W. Anderson is known for his cool, funky and unique style. Sadly, his wardrobes can easily cost over 2,000€ for just a sweater and a coat. Here’s a budget-friendly wardrobe idea that will make you look like you’ve walked right off of one of J.W. Anderson’s runways.

Matthew Miller – Sleek, Minimalistic Outerwear
Matthew Miller is known for his minimalistic, edgy style. As a bonus, his clothing is actually pretty affordable compared to many of designers that were showcased over past couple of days.
