Let’s face it, Fashion Week not only brings the sartorial and the stylish, but the try-hard-wannabe’s who look so incredibly uncomfortable in what they’ve decided to get dressed in that day. I used to go to Fashion Week but when I moved into the menswear industry I chose to give it a wide birth.
It became more than fashion. It became a clamouring crowd, vying for attention from the people who held the expensive Canons. People desperately queue for the possibility of being able to stand, never mind sit, and watch the runway shows, many pretentiously pouting and Instagraming about #FashionWeekWoes.
Those who look effortless, in my opinion, are usually the ones who are there to actually work. The journalists, the stylists, the models, the fashion editors. All of which add in a little comfort and practicality into their outfit choices as they run between shows. So in honour of all those effortless beings, I’ve pulled together twelve street style outfits from #LFW which I would wear in every day life. Expect Breton tops, lots of leather, flat shoes and an injection of colour into lots and lots of black.
