As London Fashion Week approaches I love thinking about what I’m going to wear. However the distance between what I’d love to wear and what is actually practical and realistic to wear is huge, so I thought I’d show you what I would LOVE to wear to LFW and what I actually WOULD wear to LFW.
Both outfits are 100% made up of gorgeous Next items and I’ve fallen in love with both looks so I’d love to know your favourite??
WHAT I’D LOVE TO WEAR
This look is pure tailored class! This Grey Sleeveless jacket is stunning and would look amazing over these Graphic Print trousers. Underneath I’d wear this Geometric Organza T-shirt in white. It has the most amazing intricate design all over and would add texture and design. I’d accessorise with this beauty of a Gold and Crystal statement necklace which is sooooo amazing. I’d also add some colour pop accessories with this Yellow Laser Cut clutch bag and this gorgeous Cut Out Shoes in the same vibrant yellow. I love the contrast of the grey with the burst of yellow.
This outfit is cool and chic and perfect for frowing at LFW
However in reality, its pretty blummin chilly out and I reckon I would probably freeze in just a sleeveless jacket, despite how flippin gorgeous it is. I also cant walk in heels for longer than a couple of hours and LFW involves lots of running around between shows and walking on cobbles!! heels and cobbles are not a good mix!!
Plus as pretty as this beautiful clutch bag is I’d never fit my SLR, iPad. Charger and all the other things you need to be prepared for LFW in a clutch.
So here is what I would actually wear to LFW and its still chic and uber cool but its also super practical!!
WHAT I’D ACTUALLY WEAR
I LOVE this outfit soooo much. I spotted this Graphic print blouse at the Next Press day and have wanted an excuse to buy it and I think I’ve found one!! It has the most beautiful cobalt blue design and I’d wear with layered with this lovely Cashmere long length grey jumper which would keep me lovely and warm out on the cobbles of Somerset House and adds some great layering and texture. I’d also keep warm and stylish by wearing this fabulous Ecru Biker coat which has a great sharp shape and a fab contrasting colour. To keep truly toasty I’d also wear this cute Grey Snood which has a lovely thick knitted texture. For absolute practicality I’d carry this big Blue Wing Tote bag its has a flash of cobalt blue which ties in great with the shirt and also is big enough to fit in all my Fashion Week essentials. Lastly I’d wear these Pointed Toe Black Asymmetric strap flats which are super cute and perfect for dashing between venues.
So that’s what I’d love to wear and what I’d actually wear to London fashion Week featuring Next.
Which outfit is your fave??
