We may be starting to adjust ourselves for the new season, but hold your horses for a little while longer. The spring/summer 2014 collections are currently being unveiled in New York, and London Fashion Week will take centre stage from 13-17th September. Whether you’re planning on stopping by Somerset House, the sort of person who frantically checks the runway reports on their lunch break, or doesn’t have the foggiest what FROW means, we think it’s time to unleash your inner fashionista in celebration.
The following ensemble ticks every stylish box. Start off with the Glamorous Swing Dress for a simple yet on-trend look. On top of that, this number is super flattering and very easy to style. Dependent on weather, enjoy the last of the summer warmth with bare legs or, alternatively, pair it with cosy tights. Pop the beautiful Fearne Cotton Mara Suede Buckle Boots in ‘animal’ on your feet for a truly cool look, and be prepared for a whole load of compliments.
It’s hardly coat weather yet so we recommend a slick leather jacket like the South Leather Biker Jacket on top. Slightly oversized offering a rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic, this design is ideal for layering. A plain dress requires oodles of jewellery, especially in the form of a statement necklace. Incorporate this year’s penchant for chains and add the Sasha Multi Chain Necklace to your look.
Finally, you wouldn’t be a true fashionista during LFW without a printed rucksack – the Rita Canvas Backpack comes in a monochromatic Aztec pattern, whilst providing plenty of room for all of your essentials. Slung over both shoulders, this is no longer geek but totally chic. Don’t forget to apply a touch of lippie before you walk out of the door too; we love the Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick – Rose Tweed for offering something different.
