London Fashion Week 14 went with a bang this week with hordes of fashionistas rocking their street style at Somerset House and throughout the capital city. The rain failed to dampen spirits with stylists, buyers and fashionistas embracing SS14's biggest trends. We spotted everything from flambouyant hats to bright pompom shoes flitting through the crowds but it was the denim trends and personal styling that the Donna Ida girls were chasing through the cobbled streets. Below is our edit of the hottest denim street style spotted at London Fashion Week 14.
Pastels hues and sherbet shades were a hot trend at LFW, especially worn in structured coats. Fashion and Beauty Editor Lisa Haynes looks fresh, cool and polished wearing a long pastel blue structured oversized jacket. Teaming her statement trend piece with a grey tee, distressed rolled up boyfriend jeans and statement jewellery she creates a sleek simplistic and on-trend outfit finished off with eye-catching patterned sandals.
Blogger Anouk teamed her pastel blue mohair striped coat with a plain white tee and the current hot denim trend of stone washed, distressed, ripped skinnies, three jeans trends in one. Copy her look with Current/Elliott Ankle Destroyed Skinny Jeans, Splendid round neck white t-shirt and Joie Mardona navy jacket.
Stylist Caroline Sciamma sported a boy-meets-girl trend mixing an androgynous masculine printed trouser look teamed with a high-necked white pussy bow blouse with contrasting navy bow and matching structured detailed printed blazer. This look nails the high fashion androgynous trend with a classic, cool and super sexy way to work monochrome.
Stylist Laura Fantacci is photo-ready with her mid-blue boyfriend jeans with extreme turn-ups teamed with a slate grey cashmere jumper and jewelled trench. Finish off with a pom pom beanie, Celine structured bag, A list shades and leopard pointed courts.
Black is always in style, just update your cashmere jumper and skinny jeans combination with added knee rips, chunky ankle boots and finish off with a monochrome statement scarf and oversize clutch. Tres chic.

We spotted Claire Brayford, Fashion Editor for Daily Express with her colour pop bright pink shoulder bag (plus additional silver bag - so fashion!), long white coat, pink cashmere jumper and ripped boyfriend jeans. All eyes were on her nude Christian Louboutin peep toe sandals - fabulous!
Boyfriend jeans plus a light wash multiplied by an unfinished hem is fashion maths. Add a chunky polo neck jumper, vintage shoes and a structured biker leather jacket like Husk Magazine's Elle Korhaliller.
Leather is a forever trend and we love the way Claude Borna wears high-waisted with a metallic belt, white tee and fur coat teamed with this seasons must-have structured pink bag.
The traditional boyfriend jeans were re-worked with Jovanna pictured below working a high-waisted style which is belted, channelling the 90s trend. Think Brook Shields in her Calvin Kleins for inspiration and use Nobody Denim to get the authentic denim look. Complete the look with ankle boots, crop top and leather jacket from Muubaa.
Student/Blogger Daniela, was also shot wearing boyfriend jeans in a patchwork and frayed style which was seen on the catwalks of New York Fashion Week last week. She paired hers with a cute white shirt and pastel pink combo and metallic ballet pumps. The jeans add a current and edgy vibe to the otherwise super girly, innocent outfit which instantly update the look to Fashion Week cool. Get the look with Frame Denim Le Garcon Boyfriend Jeans in Berkley Square and an Equipment Signature white shirt buttoned to the neck. Pull on the Duffy Waffle Cashmere Jumper in pale green to recreate the super girly look whilst nailing the second trend of SS14 pastels.
Distressed jeans were hot topic on the streets during LFW in styles of both boyfriend and skinny jeans. We loved buyer Angela Pastor's outfit of acid bleached distressed boyfriend jeans teamed with a white shirt and her amazing and quirky personal style of a tartan blanket slung around her shoulders, leopard print shoulder bag and graffiti motif cap. The jeans create the grungy staple piece to her overall outfit, instantly ensuing high fashion cool. Channel this look with EACH x OTHER Poem Boyfriend Jeans in light blue and an IDA Out of Africa Shirt in Milk.
Skinny jeans are a wardrobe staple in ever girl’s wardrobe so it was no surprise to see an array of skinnies on the streets of Fashion Week. The classic blue skinny jean was worn on the street by student Kalise in a high-waisted, vintage wash teamed with a black pussybow shirt tucked in and a classic black leather jacket, nailing understated cool. Inject your look with instant rebellion and rock 'n' roll by throwing on a leather jacket over any outfit. Copy this chic look with IDA Ivy skinny jeans in bright vintage with a tucked in IDA Mrs Thatcher pussybow blouse in black. Finish the look with the EACH x OTHER black leather biker jacket.
Black skinny jeans also made an appearance on the streets which can be dressed up or down with any trend or style. Photographer Molly updated her skinnies to Fashion Week worthy with a statement white tee, navy knitted cardigan and navy hat. Statement tees are another fashion trend taking over the streets this season, with a mix of controversial rebellion and elegant chic this is the perfect tee and jean combination. Channel this stylish look with J Brand Maria skinny jeans in sateen black, IDA Chic For Brains tee in milk and Christy’s Hats foldaway hat in navy.
Pale jeans in light grey and whites were seen on the fashion-filled streets which are classic, crisp and elegant.

The printed tapered trouser were a playful yet elegant item seen on the London streets nodding to the androgynous and monochrome trends.
