What To Wear To Fashion Week (*no ticket required)

See how our team navigate the shows while remaining camera-ready…

Deciding what to wear to LFW is a little bit of a minefield. Without the trusty high street and New Look’s exclusive Fashion Week Collection – ‘The Edit’ – on hand we’d be lost! These expertly curated outfits work everywhere from the office to dinner. Who needs show tickets when you’ve got Look’s insider intel anyway?

Maxine Eggenberger, Acting Editor @MaxFashionEditor

‘I’ve learnt a couple of things from LFW. 1) I cannot exit a car gracefully and 2) the whole thing is TIRING. Both realisations account for my borderline caj appearance. Jeans are not only comfy, but also eliminate any Paris Hilton-esque pants-flashing in the process. Throw in a classic tan trench, a white embroidered blouse and a classy bag and I’m set. Less is more and all that. My main sartorial indulgence? These hot leopard print sandals; no matter how weary my feet my be come day five, I’ll never part with my heels.’

Giselle Wainwright, Acting Deputy Editor @GiselleLikes

‘A Prince of Wales checked power suit is this season’s hottest staple, and what better time for it to come than LFW? Put it this way meeting-to-catwalk dressing has never been easier – and it makes me feel super confident. Winning.’

Harriet Davey, Deputy Fashion News Editor @Harriet.Davey

‘Even though I know LFW happens twice a year, every year, at the same time, I always still panic last minute about what I’m going to wear. So, I usually tend to gather all my wardrobe staples like a Bretton tee, leather (this season it’s all about vinyl) skirt, and statement shoes and mix and match. An outfit has to have the perfect ratio between style and comfort when you’re trekking around, but for me it’s all about a ‘look at me’ shoe.’

Sarah-Rose Harrison, Senior Fashion Assistant @SarahRoseGoes

‘After living in ruffles all summer long this dreamy dress really caught my eye. Tapping into the oh-so chic deconstructed shirt trend it ticks all the boxes for me and is exactly what I look to wear to LFW. This dress will go seamlessly from show-to-afterparty and eliminate my annual ‘I have nothing to wear to fashion week’ meltdown.’

Victoria Adegboyega, Picture Editor @StyleMavenWorld

‘When it comes to LFW, looking cool, stylish and comfortable are top priorities for me. I naturally gravitate to statement pieces from stand out colours to fabrics, and I’m all game for trying new catwalk trends. LFW is the it event of the season, so the rule cook goes out of the window and its the perfect opportunity to wear pieces you probably couldn’t get away with at work. Plus I have this crazy idea that if street style photographers are about, I want to be on my A game. But I will be that fashion lover who will always carry a pair of comfy trainers in my bag!’
