LFW Outfit 1 – Folli Follie; Handbag, Watch, Necklace, Single Bracelet, Double Bracelet, Single Ring, Double Ring / Forever 21 Jacket / ASOS Jumpsuit (Sold Out) / Urban Outfitters Boots / Ray-Ban Sunglasses
There’s a lot of pressure to look good for LFW, sometimes it can be hard to know where to start. It can be tempting to choose things that simply aren’t you and end up looking uncomfortable, trust me, I’ve made this mistake before.
We must stay true to ourselves and celebrate our individuality. Individuality isn’t always doing the opposite of the norm, your individuality is a combination of your personal opinions and preferences, whether they’re popular or not.
I’ve dressed my first look up with a lot of silver, using the rings and bracelets to add some formality to the pyjama suit.
I chose the square, structured, little bag to contrast the soft tailoring of the jumpsuit. I particularly love its gunmetal name plate, not something you see often.
LFW Outfit 2 – Jewelery from Folli Follie (as in Outfit 1)
It’s important to find confidence in your own personal style. LFW is a great excuse to take things a little further. You can wear things that you wouldn’t wear every day. Be a little bolder, a little braver. But the only way to make these bold moves work is to make sure they feel true to you.
A beret, not something I wear every day but we all know I’m no stranger to a good fedora. A beret’s the fedora’s chic European cousin.
I chose this beautiful watch because it’s roman numerals felt like an extension of me. If I was going to hide the ones I normally so proudly show on my chest, I needed some on my wrist.
As important as it is to find the right clothes, finding the right accessories is key. It really is all in the details.
The rose gold necklace and watch are softer and subtler than the silver I normally opt for. The statement necklace goes perfectly alongside a leather jacket. The one I’m wearing is great for taking from day to night as you can wear it long, with the pendant hanging, or doubled over as I have here.
I chose the burnt orange bag to give my look a more Autumnal edge. It’s the perfect size, not so big that you end up weighing it down with unnecessary items, but just big enough to fit everything you need for the day (Including a camera).
Take the accessories away from Outfit 1 and I look like I’ve rocked up in my PJ’s. Take the beret from Outfit 2 and it isn’t half as chic. And as for Outfit 3, without the pop of colour, chunky necklace and plunging neckline, I could just be popping to Sainsbury’s.
The little details make such a difference to the overall feel of a look, make them count.
