Five Days, Five London Fashion Week Outfits



Fashion Week is always a moment for me to get into character. I like to flesh out looks that feel distinctively like me, but with an element of exaggeration. For example, one day last season I was heavily fixated on the idea of modern Regency-inspired dressing, so incorporated bloomers with a fitted blazer. In anticipation of the Kiko Kostadinov womenswear show, I felt it important to show my support for Laura and Deanna Fanning – the young designers at the helm – by wearing statement pieces from their last collection: a halter-neck top with a glitter finish and statement boots.

Suffice to say, I relish dressing up for Fashion Week and slipping in a fun accessory. This season, I decided to make hero glasses the focal point of my looks, choosing styles from Specsavers, which embody my style. Read on to see my five London Fashion Week ensembles.

With sunny rays taking over the capital, it felt fitting to don an outfit that exuded that same warm whimsicality. I opted for a rust star hoodie and crochet bonnet (a trending piece now) with a pair of dark-wash jeans for balance. A pair of Vivienne Westwood tortoiseshell glasses fitted in perfectly, and Wales Bonner Jewel trainers felt like the ideal footwear for a dose of chic.

As mentioned, young designers are integral to my Fashion Week experience, and I’m a fervent supporter of emerging talent – hence this get-up. Pale-pink Liberty glasses worked in tandem with this Paolina Russo top (as seen on Doja Cat), layered over a brown dress and brown and navy ribbon boots. These gorgeous pink frames helped me lean into the playfulness of the outfit for maximum impact.

This was a slight ode to the Nineties with a nylon skirt that, to me, is reminiscent of classic-era Prada. Pink and red will always be a combination I’ll vouch for, and so I paired a cropped printed T-shirt with red Miu Miu flats (again, my penchant for the carmine trend trickled through) with a biker. Simple geometric black sunglasses allowed the shoes to take centre stage.

It’s undeniable that anything red hot has been ubiquitous on catwalks over the past few months. Pairing a fiery merino top with a relaxed trench coat and bottoms felt like the most authentic way of slipping in a pop of colour while flitting from show to show. Sparkling rhinestone-embellished Alaïa flats added the right amount of shine and tied in effortlessly with these Marc Jacobs black and gold wire-rimmed glasses.

Executive-chic was on the mood board for the final day of London Fashion Week. Coupling a form-fitting jacket with pedal pushers – a nostalgic throwback – and kitten heels is what I’d imagine I’d throw on if I was guest-starring in an episode of Succession (RIP). These forest-green angular specs complemented my boardroom outfit beautifully.
