Seventies Starlet

Day one of LFW, I was determined to look stylish, but as I legged it across London in my vintage blue velvet platforms, channeling my inner seventies style icon Jacqeline Bisset, I remembered just how challenging it is to contend with the famous cobbles of Somerset House.

At the end of a busy first day attending shows including the Merit Award AW15, Paul Costelloe at the stunning Wardorf Hotel, and Ashley Isham (posts to follow soon!), I mentally shoved my beloved heels to the back of my wardrobe and hobbled to Shuh on Neal street to pick up a pair of Nike Internationalist trainers I’d had my eye on. Though I’m not usually one for ‘comfortable’ footwear, I needed something that would allow me to sprint from venue to venue, and I’m sorry to say heels just don’t allow that flexibility!

This season I am really excited about the seventies trend and so this was my inspiration when planning my LFW outfits. As much as I wanted to dress for S/S, the English weather wasn’t cutting it, so I teamed my Spring pastel duck egg blue skirt with pocket detail, front zip,and frayed edging from Topshop with a trusty black ribbed turtleneck from Miss Selfridge and some black suede platforms. I also wore this look with my brand spanking new Nike Internationalists for running from show to show, and let me tell you- they were the best investment yet!

I’ve always had a bit of fashion affair with Whistles. There’s something so special about the contemporary and effortless style that dominates their brand like no other. I simply could not resist this take on this season’s camouflage trend seen on runways of the likes of Christopher Kane and Alexander Wang.

Pastel colours and jacquard make this take on camo wearable and feminine, and I love the box pleat shape which is another major trend this season and one to watch for next! Styled with a simple white chiffon shirt, I think the look is clean and contemporary, just how Whistles made it to be! Teamed with skyscraper Steve Madden’s and a leather jacket, I’ve gone for a camo by night look, but I could just so happily wear this piece minus the jacket and shoes for a toned down look.
