It's been a very chilly London Fashion Week. Between downpours of rain and a wind that would slice your face in two, it's been a challenge style wise. On Sunday I had to do three changes simply because the wet got through to my bones, let alone my clothes.
But it wouldn't be fashion week without the odd shower of hail or even snow. That hasn't happened yet, but I await it!
AW15 is certainly going to be chic and I am happy to report the return of a few key trends that are prevalent for the current season. So what can you hold onto?
- The Jumpsuit
David Koma certainly loved the jumpsuit; which had a nice bootleg cut to it too. Mostly, it was black that formed the main palette so if you have one of these left over from the party season, do not give it away. You can revamp it with statement accessories and a killer heel to channel the AW15 look
- The Polo Neck
Sorry to those who were polo haters, it's staying. DAKS hit everything we love about the Sixties and Seventies, one aspect of which is the polo neck. Layered under mini dresses and military style pea coats, it's a cute approach to the iconic pieces of the eras
It's not really a trend anymore, but monochrome seems to reinvent itself every year. Issa went for jacket and trouser co-ordinated pieces, which we have seen before, but rather than the top and pants combination, long line coats become the key piece.
I had shoe envy over at Belstaff where model Sam Rollinson was wearing amazing flat ankle boots that reminded me of a Dr. Marten. These, however, are in dark mulberry with a more round toe which worked perfectly with the abundance of leather jackets and wide leg trousers.
Have you been watching the fashion week reports with a keen eye? Have you seen any trends you are loving?
