LFW Street Style

I've never really written about men's fashion and style but Jessica Brown, a brilliant and talented young photographer who I featured here last month, took some photos for me at London Fashion Week, and as I am writing about the female fashionistas for an article on The Divine Addiction I decided to use some of my favourite male street style photos here on LIQUORICE.

I often find that men end up looking a bit feminine whilst attempting to add fashion elements, such as accessories and bags, that are fairly unusual in 'everyday' men's fashion. I love this look, along with the following, so much because these fashionable guys have found the perfect balance for a truly wearable style. 

I love the combination of embellishments, linear stripes and wavy lines in this guys coat, shirt and hat; creating contrast but keeping it fairly neutral with dark colours, and just a splash of blue and yellow.

Accessorising - guys...it's okay to get the jewellery out! Make sure it's bold and chunky but fairly neutral (silvers, blacks and golds) to keep it masculine.

But of course the best accessory is a cute girl with style as good as your own!

Elegant and classic men's style, with a paisley tie and gold accent sunglasses...a seriously cool look.


Taking completely different style inspiration this guy is working a popular cross shirt and a cool and classic leather jacket with more feminine accessories - gloves, gold rings and a patent leather bag. 

Another leather jacket, but this time using mixed materials, colour and print. Leopard is seriously wild and worn well can be sophisticated too.


These looks work, not only because they have been styled by guys who obviously care about their appearance and put thought in to accessorising and co-ordinating, but because they have the blatant charisma and passion to be able to pull off such additions to an outfit! 
Hell yeah to fashionable men!
