LFW 5 – DOLCE & GABBANA x PRADA

This is my last look of London Fashion Week and quite possibly my favourite. I’ve always been a huge fan of layering, I love the different silhouettes you can create with different pieces. The shirt underneath dresses is something I’ve been loving for a while now and will be in my wardrobe for the foreseeable future. I love popping a polo-neck, shirt and as we head into the warmer months a bardot blouse underneath items I already have in my wardrobe to create different looks.

I started this look with the dress – after locking eyes upon the beautiful green fabric I couldn’t resist. To give the skirt a bit of lift I popped a Prada tulle skirt underneath it. The white shirt turns something that could easily be worn as evening wear into a much more daytime look – definitely a good tip if you want to rework anything in your own wardrobes.

Accessorising is key for me at the moment – you may have seen this belt a few too many times. Ever since Dior brought out the big thick corset belt I’ve been obsessed with them. You will be pleased to know I have an array of accessories to show you in my next haul video that are going to out do even this belt!

Let’s talk trends! Tartan has been huge throughout all five days. It’s popped up subtly and also very full on like you can see here in the Roberta Einer show. Tartan and neon is definitely and interesting combination. Does anybody else get excited to try out all the new inspiration before Autumn is even upon us!

Again we see a lot of colour clashing – bright, vibrant and a mix of fabrics, almost like a patchwork quilt in cases. A new fashion rule of mine this season is to inject more colour into my wardrobe as black is an absolute uniform of mine I wanted to venture outside my comfort zone. I think black is sophisticated and sexy with an air of luxury about it but injections of colour into your wardrobe can be refreshing!

So London Fashion Week has come to an end once again! Hopefully next season we can do New York, Milan & Paris too! There is a lot of opinions on fashion week in the blogging industry and it definitely isn’t for everyone nor is it probably what you would ever think. For me I’m absolutely obsessed with fashion and spend copious amounts of my free time scrolling through Vogue catwalk archives so to get to see it in real life is incredible.

Thanks to Designer Exchange for dressing me this season. Designer Exchange is a great place to buy or sell designer items and their stores are like treasure troves of designer finds, both vintage and new! Every time I go I get lost sifting through the most amazing pieces!
