Going Casual for LFW '16
London Fashion Week is fast approaching, and pretty soon we'll start seeing stylish men and women pull out their hottest outfits in preparation.
This season's schedule features, for the first time, A.F.Vandervorst and Charlotte Olympia, whilst Alexander McQueen returns for one season only. My favourite designer, Eudon Choi, will be showing his AW16 collection at the BFC Show Space at Brewer Street, where the stark white 'car park' will be transformed into a dynamic catwalk space for its second season as the home of LFW.
Last season, I wore flat over-the-knee boots from Deichmann, a tan a-line mini skirt from New Look and a striped polo neck top from Missguided, attempting a weird genre-mix of the 60s and 70s. It was comfortable and casual - because there's no way I was going to traipse around London in uncomfortable heels and wait in line for hours to see shows, or trip and get stuck between the Tube and the platform. I love fashion, but I also appreciate practicality (perhaps that's the country girl coming out of me).
I'm going for a similar vibe with this month's LFW outfit; but this time I'm going for standard black skinnies, a warm-ish poncho (because it's February and no one will give you sympathy if you haven't brought a coat) and obligatory over-the-knee boots.
My designer picks from Farfetch are a tartan poncho from Chloé, a pair of black skinnies from MIH Jeans and black boots from Laurence Dacade - ideal for a quick getaway if you're flitting between shows and the office, as the boots only have a small heel and the poncho can easily be taken off and chucked into a tote if you get too hot.
