As well as all the shows, presentations and parties, London Fashion Week spring/summer 2015 is the perfect opportunity for some serious street style snapping. For five days, London’s Somerset House is invaded by thousands of fashionistas, all bringing their outfit A-game, whether that means sweatpants and kicks or fabulous frocks and killer heels. We find it’s best to alternate on the shoe front, FYI.
You often can’t move for photographers on the cobbles, but this season, we decided to get in on the snapping action ourselves and bring you some of our favourite LFW street style looks. First up is Topshop’s Personal Shopping Manager Sarah Haymes. Her bold printed jacket caught our eye outside the Topshop show, where she was waiting to go in her with stylish other half and Kenzo-clad baby daughter – too cute. Sarah’s statement cover up is by French label Hartford, which we’re now totally addicted to. It’s pretty purse friendly, so get involved. She let the jacket do the talking by teaming it with an all-black ensemble of Topshop jeans and cami and cool buckled Toga Pulla boots. A chic Chanel bag completed look. Minimum effort, maximum wardrobe impact.
Then we spotted Dreaming of Chanel blogger Andreea Panciuc – well, she was pretty hard to miss with those colour pop accessories. Rocking a utility style Reiss navy suit, she gave the smart combo a daytime dress down with some bright pink Nike Roshe Run’s and a cross-body C Mood bag. Now that’s how you run around London all day and still look chic.
Stylist Lydia Thompson nailed the ladylike vibe in a Marks & Spencer heart print shirt and cream dress – nice layering work – amping things up with a matching River Island hat, chain strap bag and Topshop peep-toes. Kudos for proving head-to-toe tonal is far from boring Lydia.
Finally, just how amazing is fashion stylist Nana Acheampong’s neon lace pencil skirt? The perfect choice for a rather grey day in London, Nana teamed her knockout Topshop number with a grey marl crop top and clashing Office animal print courts. A studded Mango leather jacket edges up the ladylike skirt nicely.
Well played ladies, your looks have given us some serious wardrobe inspo. Don’t forget to show us your FROW-worthy looks by heading over to our Look What I’m Wearing page.
