What to Wear for London Fashion Week SS17

LFW is upon us, and if you're attending any shows over the next six days - or even if you're just hanging around trying to get papped - you'll want a killer outfit to stand out from the crowd. 

Note: of course, Fashion Week is a trade event and is meant for people who work in the fashion industry; therefore there should be no fun of any kind, no one should be taking selfies, nor should anyone be documenting said fun or selfies on social media, and you DEFINITELY shouldn't be blogging about it.

I'm kidding. Fashion is fun, so we should have fun, enjoy ourselves and not take life too seriously.

*back to the blog post*

I spent this entire week scouring the internet for something to wear for my LFW shows. For me style is important, but comfort is essential. I don't have the money to get Ubers everywhere, so flats or comfortable low heels are a must. I'll be walking around by myself so I'd rather not wear anything too loud or revealing. BUT it'll be boiling hot so I also need to think about light layers and avoiding dark colours. 

Needless to say I couldn't find anything online. Plus I have just about zero money in my account, so I'll have to stick with what I've already got.

As with every season, I'm using Instagram to find inspiration. I'll think about my own requirements, then build around that using images from bloggers, models, journos and other FW attendees to produce something stylish as well as practical. This month, I'm looking at the babes of NYFW (try the hashtag #nyfw to find your own inspo) - here are my findings:

Jessica Wang, photographed by Ryan Chua, is wearing a gorgeous striped one shoulder top with an oversized ruffle. She's pairing this with ripped jeans, blue velvet heels and a white handbag. I love her sunglasses - definitely the shape of the season.

Caroline Daur is working a lilac tee under a black lace slip, toughened up with studded boots and a YSL bag. Super delicate, with a touch of leather. I love this.

One of my favourite bloggers, Andy Torres, is wearing a Hugo Boss dress for their show, cinched with a nude belt, matching zip-up boots and a black carry-all tote.

Evelyn DiVlach looks so damn chic in this electric blue tulle skirt, simple tee and metallic shoes and accessories for the Anna Sui show. A perfect match for the designer's playful style.

Natasha Poly doubling up her Tod's handbag and trainers with an all black outfit. So casual, but she pulls it off so effortlessly.

Crystal from Obsessions Now wearing her favourite fall colour in an architectural skirt, black cold-shoulder turtle neck and black boots. Her red handbag is to die for, and totally bring this outfit together.

Helena Bordon looking so damn chic whilst wearing her own brand of sunglasses. She's pairing this with an oversized shirt, Prada corset belt, Louis Vuitton boots and little black shorts.

Irene Kim is catching a bit to eat before the Coach show, working heavenly clashing prints to tie in with her coloured hair. So cute!

Jill Wallace is stopping traffic in these knee high lace up boots. She pairs it with an angelic white dress, black sunglasses and, the accessory of the season, a wide choker.

Kaitlynn Carter is looking bewitching in Parisian brand Brockenbow's flared jeans, and a bell sleeve Rachel Zoe top. I adore the lace detailing!

Legend Sandra Hagelstam is wearing those iconic Stella McCartney cleated shoes, paired with an Elena Shisellini bag and a white a-line dress. Matchy, but I like it.

Chriselle Lim is everything I want to be and more on day 6 of NYFW. Her insanely chic outfit sees the use of killer courts, cropped black trousers, and a black cami OVER a white shirt. Pretty sure I couldn't pull this off, but I'm definitely admiring it on her.
