Straight off the catwalk

As London is home to some of the most ground breaking, unconventional and avant-garde designers, it’s often hard to see how some designs can be realistically worn in day-to-day life. Especially if your style philosophy is more clean-cut and smart, as is mines. Particularly as I move towards my mid-twenties, I’m focused on building a wardrobe with staple pieces that can form the basis of my wardrobe.

And so I’ve selected my top 7 inspiring outfits from the shows at LFW that I could wear directly from the catwalk. Whether for work or a party occasion, the following looks can stay as they are. And they represent the garments I could see in my closet today and years from now. I’m ready to work this style of wardrobe!

Eudon Choi – I love this abstract colour block two piece! The silver shine ankle boots, which the designer collaborated on with footwear designer Ganor Dominic, offset the look superbly. Perfect for a work and occasional look.

This dazzling, iridescent bodycon dress is an ultimate party wear outfit for me. The slithers of skin peeping through the bust area and arms is tastefully sultry. And the peep toes with buckle strap fastening are a fresh and modern pair of party footwear.

This is a bold and fun look that I adore. The coat is my absolute favourite; the warm tone is gorgeous and works wonders with the graphic cubic designs, keeping the look sophisticated, whilst being playful.

She’s a lady! The feminine silhouette of this outfit is undeniably flattering. And what really struck me was the colour combinations, which would suit a dark skin tone like myself. The pattern on the skirt reminds me of African-styled prints.

This dreamy black dress is the quintessential garment for an evening look. The billowing hemline and side slit is smouldering and gives off a romantic feel. Paired with open toe sandals with a transparent strap over the feet to complement the sultry feel.

As ever, Sarah Burton worked wonders with a romantic and dreamy collection that was so authentic and believable. This look is ultra sleek with an edge. The soft, feminine undergarment balances the chain detailed blazer, as does the open toe heels.

This head-to-toe look felt so natural to my style. It’s super chic, modern and effortlessly cool. The sweater is a luxe take on sportswear. The pop of colour from the bag accents the look, clutched to the side for a relaxed approach. The pop socks, the undone zips, the pulled back hair – it’s just perfection.
