STYLIST'S TIPS FOR LONDON FASHION WEEK| February 17, 2015
When it comes to London Fashion Week, Missguided’s Stylist Sara is clued up on what to wear. A day on the cobbles can take its toll, from running between shows to catching up with blogger babes at Somerset House, so we caught up with her to get the skinny on what we should be wearing and her predictions on the hottest trends for the season.
So Sara, what’s your advice on what to wear for anyone heading down to Somerset House this weekend?
Wear something that reflects who you are and have fun with it. Do not try to be over complicate the look. Pick one statement piece such as an amazing coat or a jaw-dropping dress and work the outfit around that. If you try to wear the most eye catching of everything, you risk looking too try-hard. Be effortlessly chic.
Go playful with your accessories, fur bags , novelty accents and cool trainers were all over the streets last season and are a street style spotters dream. Then shades, always take some sunglasses – you will thank me after the 6th show.
Heels or flats?
The cobbles are not your friend. I have seen many a style insider braving the photographers flash on the streets in her pimped up heels, only to change into her kicks around the corner before she dashes to the next show. Luckily cool trainers, brogues, loafers & boots are having a fashion moment so use this to your advantage.
What one beauty product couldn’t you live without for LFW?
A killer shade of lippie. It instantly perks up your look after running between shows all day and is the easiest way to add a pop of colour.
What’s your prediction for trends on the cobbles this season?
I am expecting a lot of camel tones ( Hey there Kim K! ) and pastel shades, casual tailoring, 70’s shapes; block heels, wide legs and flares, lots of delicate textures such as satin, brushed silk and suede and of course, the 90’s look but this time with a more urban edge.
Then there is the usual array of craziness – capes, masks, people on stilts & dresses made of old toys – you name it – it will be there!
