Mrs V is highlighting a hundreds and thousands snapshot of what was shown at London Fashion Week in September 2017, and why you should invest in some part of these little style kicks. Fashion is a many splendored thing and just because I’m not featuring it all here doesn’t mean you won’t see me wearing, but for now the style suggestions set before you are already nestling nicely in my wardrobe. I ain’t asking you to do anything that I wouldn’t do.You can go straight in and buy the look in its entirety, or you could do the same as me which is scrutinise, select and style. What I’m seeing here is me modelling lol! but more importantly, femininity incorporating flounce and transparence. Invest. Not a flash in the pan look. Next season you’ll wear these dresses and their coat friends over your jeans.
Look at this confection of cute as anything clothes. Step inside this look. If you haven’t got a boob tube or a non scary/new to you and your style, corset. Go get one, it will have the open sesame effect on lots of your tops and some of your jackets. Very little investment, very big effect. I’ve been wearing this look for a while and couldn’t love it more and am always accumulating more tops to truss me up in.
You need to see these collections at their purest, how the designers show them, before you can decant. Find an essence and make it your own. We have the juxtaposition of funkaploosa prints and grown up fabric. A peep show of flesh and anarchic animal prints, individually riotous but together fashion fierce. Use these style stepping stones. Sometimes you’ll get your feet wet, but where you want to be is the other side of the river, the view is different. Don’t stagnate your style.
Here ’tis, my best friend since the the invention of the Tutu. Its Athleisure o’ clock. Bet I don’t have to say more. But I must, because if you haven’t dabbled just a little with this, I’m sad. You can find any price point for this look and you will travel far and wide in it. Tailored jacket, espadrilles, or Manolos. Get on with it!
Athleisure is very adaptable and approachable.
Saloon style and all the fun of the Bordello. The Last Supper for naughty girls. So much to love here. Undiluted prettiness but with a risky ruffle and colours that would be happy making for Christian Lacroix. Higher accolades are just not out there. I’m loving the disco fabrics and Soul Train designs. What about a tailored jacket with those Purple Rain trousers? There you go, you’re in.
