London Fashion Week is, without a doubt, the best of all the fashion weeks, with regards to street style. Everyone is desperate to get snapped by the photographers, and you only need to linger around Somerset House for a matter of minutes before you see some of the most amazingly put together outfits you could imagine. Some are, admittedly, a bit whacky, but I believe that’s what fashion is about, expressing yourself and having fun.
Oh my giddy aunt! Remember when I found those Zara trousers that were like PJ pants? This is even better! Lane Crawford fashion buyer, and fashion week regular Tiffany Hsu, has just shown that’s fine to go out in full-on sleepwear, including dressing gown/superhero cape, as long as you throw on a pair of heels. She is living my dream! Just dig out a pair of men’s silk pyjamas (Lily Silk) have a gorgeous selection of luxury designs – mix and match the slouchy trousers with the short sleeved shirts), throw on your most killer killer heels (you don’t want to be too comfortable, that would just be lazy), and a heavy contrast-coloured full length wool coat for a daring but edgy fashion week-inspired look.
These Givenchy boots are what footwear dreams are made of! I always think these are the style that will make my chunky monkey legs slightly less chunky-looking. Unfortunately, I don’t think my bank balance will ever let me find this out. I’m loving the oversized boots with the voluminous cape and just that flash of slim, streamlined leg giving a lovely silhouette to the whole outfit. I’m not crazy about tartan capes, but the block of solid colour at the neckline, highlighted in the stripes, breaks up the traditional design, and I love the oversized pompom adding a little playful twist. This classy burgundy version by Pied a Terre at House of Fraser is my perfect style and colour, and it is currently on sale, which is even better.
So, I normally write about women’s streetstyle, but stylist and blogger Arian Humirang is rocking this look so hard, I want it all for myself! I’m all about clashing prints and quirky accessories (silver brogues anyone?), so this guy is right up my street. And he’s high-streeted up to the max in an ASOS suit, Topshop top and Zara accessories. Such an accessible look, despite perhaps not being for the faint hearted. If you want to do something similar and inject some designer glam into the look, check out my latest shoe discovery for some metallic footwear – Luke Grant-Muller. Just how fabulous are the brogues? In an ideal world, along with my Givenchy boots, I’d have a pair in chrome AND holographic! I’ll just keep dreaming shall I…?
