What a way to start 2017- LFWM s has had us all in awe at the show stopping attire that our favourite London designers have been sending down the runway this January. At Beyond Retro, weve always got an eye out for the vintage influences that still reign strong on our runways and have picked out our favourite trends and some ideas on how you can recreate these looks with our unique vintage product for a style to suit you.
It's mid winter and with summer just a distant memory, knitwear seems like the most practical of trends to strut out in, however style doesn't have to be compromised, wear bold bright and over sized. Don't let the January blues get you down!
