A real diversity of styles and influences decked the catwalk at London Fashion Week – with some great ideas for us high street consumers (or commoners) to stay on trend with the shades and shapes of the season stretching as far as Autumn/Winter 2016.
Eye catching is the name of the game, and Olivia Palermo donned some exciting bold patterns in midi length dresses with loosly flung cardies.
Ok, we are starting at a leather trench coat which is not a snitch at £175 but is an investment if you like the classic cut, and will actually last you for several seasons (or years!). This gorgeous leather coat is on offer in Miss Selfridge and will look good over jeans or a pencil skirt.
If you want to go seventies you could go as far as a pair of Bell Bottoms in Zara at £39,99. Okay a bit over the top, but worth mentioning and think about it – this could be your big fashion moment to really shock your kids, or even your Mum who will remember wearing them back in the day. They are also rather flattering.
If you are shocked by the Bell Bottom idea, a more sensible suggestion would be a stripe trouser suit, influence Jasper Conran, you can pick up in River Island – the jacket is £60 and the trousers £38.
You don’t need to spend a fortune on shoes, and we have spotted some great buys at Miss KG for around £15.
Getting the idea? Well just a few suggestions, and I am sure with your own creativity you can elaborate and dress up any outfit with a seventies style skinny scarf from M and S at only £12.50 to complete the look.
