Another show, another FROW, and this time it was Olivia Palermo, Poppy D and Jessica Hart sitting pretty at Michael Kors SS15. But as much as we enjoy a celeb spot (every time), we’re feeling pretty starry ourselves right now as we’ve just discovered how to channel the MK catwalk right now.
As soon as we clapped eyes on the marvelous midi skirts, most notably the yellow beauty with appliquéd florals, we knew we were ready to declare ourselves huge fans of this collection. There were gingham skirts, too, paired with off-the-shoulder crop tops and crisp, mannish shirts. All-white looks aren’t going anywhere, but the designer also weaved in ditzy florals and blown-up blooms, flashes of yellow and classic Breton stripes.
And you know what? This collection is so wearable and you can actually shop the look right now on the high street. Topshop’s yellow midi will put a spring in your step, and will bring black tights and ankle boots to life for AW14. Or if you didn’t invest in the gingham trend a while back, Missguided’s skirt will give you definite Kors vibes.
The best bit is you’ve probably got a lot of these staples hanging on your rails already. Classic trench coats, striped tops, boy-fit shirts and tea dresses are all on the agenda – simply update them with a smart approach to styling. If there’s one thing Michael Kors loves, it’s a belt, so cinch in that waist and make a double loop. That’s catwalk style in an instant!
