Starting from 12th September, London Fashion Week SS15 will dominate our lives for five consecutive days. As a Londoner and LFW regular, you might be used to the difficult fashion choices and must already know what you're going to strut around in the week. But if you're a first timer at the show, it's easy to make rookie mistakes. Hence below are three outfits that are foolproof, fashion blogger approved yet classy and timeless. You can never go wrong with neutrals, monochrome, a bit of grey, sheer fabrics and some rugged leather going on.
Stick to one shade dressing. It's proven popular amongst celebs and on the runway recently. It will be chilly so you totally can rock a grey gilet. The fur instantly adds a tonne of texture, makes the apparel interesting and is perfect for toning down any harsh, rock-chic fabrics like leather. Pair it with a silky longline cami top underneath and a light grey pencil skirt. Make sure to slightly vary the shades of grey chosen to prevent it from looking dated. Finish off the look with pointed peep toes with a matte mock-croc finish. Throw on an understated backpack in a multicolored grey to balance the ultra-glamorous theme a little.
Channel you inner Kim K! Perfect for the slightly curvy girls out there, this figure flattering, part chic-part casual outfit is sure to be a winner for London Fashion Week 2015. It's a timeless classic with soft neutrals, trusty stilettos and those ripped denims. The textured peplum jacket adds a hint of seasonal trend into the apparel. It's quite a refreshing change to see peplum making an entry back into the fashionsphere as we did seem to love back in 2012. As for the leather handbag, I quite like this slightly slouchy, slightly sturdy number with some tassel detail going around. The dark brown colour contrasts the outfit but not as sharply as a jet black would. It looks like you haven't tried too hard and are casually just in-vogue. Perfecto!
From Coco Chanel to Marilyn Monroe, the boy meets girl trend has earned popularity since decades hence slotting it into the timeless classic category. There's something effortlessly cool about macho shapes meeting ladylike detailing. The Chelsea Tan Handbag is a perfect fit to go with the apparel. It's got a nice, not-so-feminine shape and colour to blend in with the theme perfectly. The oversized checked coat, white poplin shirt, tartan cigarette pants to those front peep toe shoe boots are just the right amount of monochrome to keep it safe yet with a boyish hint to make it appear stylish for London Fashion Week. Also a great one for the nippy weather to keep yourself warm whilst clicking a gazillion pictures for Instagram.
