It wouldn’t be fashion week without lashing rain. I’m in the London Fashion week VIP lounge listening to the rain hammer down on the tents, as if the whole thing will cave in. I really hope not. I’m wearing borrowed clothes. Total mare that would be. It’s hard to wear the latest Spring Summer attire when the weather is against us, but we can still inject a few trends here and there. And, we can look at the AW15 catwalks and see what we can wear right now.
First things first though, I’ll talk you through my outfit. Saturday is all about comfort and a relaxed style so I went for a t-shirt/trench coat outfit to channel a litt of my favourite personal style. This t-shirt was a big hit with the photographers outside Somerset House, it does have a hashtag naturally! I layered this under a black trench coat from Primark which I have had for about a year, but it’s a timeless classic that I have worn so many times and I absolutely love it. The trench is something that never goes away and I love this one. The fabric is flexible and you can layer another jacket under it for those colder days.
This look is so me, and the t-shirt is currently in store. But you can also get the look with these!
There are plenty of trends you can wear now, especially looking at the 1960s vibe coming down the catwalk from DAKS and David Koma, which are two of my favourite shows so far! DAKS maintained a palette of red; married with more modern features like off centre zips, quilted leather details. But it stayed very true to the iconic silhouettes of the decade with “mod” inspired mini dresses and plenty of polo necks. The collection did move to the seventies with bootleg trousers and military inspired coats. David Koma took a different approach but added in subtle elements like frill sleeves and skater mini skirts. The shift dress was also a key piece. If you want to channel a little of these eras, then the wide leg printed trouser and round shades are the perfect start!
