What I Wore to London Fashion Week

Each season, fashion week makes me up my game when it comes to my style. Regardless of whether or not I’m attending, I am inspired by the shows and street style looks to get more creative with the way I dress. This year gave me a kick up the arse like never before. For the first time ever, I would be a fashion week attendee (read more about it here) and would sit shoulder-to-shoulder with the impeccably dressed women that inspire me each season.

In terms of my outfit choice, I wanted something that reflected both current trends and my personal style. I decided to start the look with a lilac babydoll dress from Urban Outfitters. It feels a little Cecilie Bahnson inspired and features a loose babydoll silhouette and on-trend elbow-length puff sleeves. The thick cotton fabric is finished with a square neckline and intricate floral cross-stitch detailing along the bust.

When it comes to fashion week, as important as looking good is, I also needed to be comfortable. Traipsing between events and other activities in heels simply wasn’t an option. That’s where the Dr. Martens come in. They’re a tried and true classic, add an industrial edge to an otherwise overtly feminine outfit and, with a platform sole, make my legs look really long. Plus, heavyweight boots are described by Vogue as a definitive accessory for Autumn/Winter 2019 which is an added bonus. And, in a continuation of on-trend pieces, I accessorised with a metallic blue mini bag and braided velvet headband. In the end, I felt a little like an extra from Ari Aster’s Midsommar, but I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing.
