My Week in Outfits

If you’re British, you’ve probably experienced a whole load of extreme weather conditions this week. *Looks out of window* It’s sunny, yay! *Walks out of front door* Bloody hell, it’s freezing. *Walks down street* It’s hail-stoning, great… This weather is as imbalanced as yours truly on one of those hormonal days when my boyfriend tries to hide from me. Creating outfits that are April-appropriate seems impossible sometimes. We all know the feeling… A few tips on how to dress for this crazy, unpredictable weather. 1) Invest in some lightweight jackets. Bombers are on trend and easy to style. 2) Stick to cropped denim jeans. We don’t live in the Bahamas, it’s not time for bare legs just yet – thank god (need to find my gym pass). 3) Wear suede before summer hits. I loved implementing suede into my winter wardrobe last year. I feel like this trend just won’t sit right for spring/summer – get your wear out of suede pieces now before it’s too late.

Every self respecting fashionista was seen in them – whether they were on the front row or on the tube. It’s a story that started out with a young girl named Lily Allen. A pop star at a young age, her ‘thing’ was her unique style and her wacky character. Prom dresses teamed with a pair of Nike Air Max 90s quickly became her signature look, yet the fashion world didn’t seem to get it.  A few years later, it seems like they’ve cottoned on with a little help from the ever-growing sports luxe trend. With the likes of Stella McCartney introducing sportswear to their runway collections and designing for Adidas, as well as blogger royalty, such …

LFW Diaries

DAY 5 10.30am-12.30am: adidas by Stella McCartney Like everything in life, you perform better when you look good, and McCartney believes sportswear is no different. For me, a baggy netball tshirt and a pair of shorts suffices when I’m in the mood for a workout, but there was something intriguing about her showcase for adidas. Her collection was exhibited in the form of synchronized swimmers, gymnasts hanging from the ceiling and spinning models, all showcasing the collection within the practicalities of which it would be used for in every day life – something McCartney was obviously keen to put across to the fashion world. Inspiring women to go out there and swim, cycle, go to a yoga class – this is the main aim. With sustainable textiles, sheer fabrics and fashion details, such as those oversized sleeves on tops and sweaters, McCartney’s collection gives you the best in terms of science and style. We all know it’s important to exercise, and with collections such as this hitting LFW, it’s getting harder and harder to ignore…now …
