I caught up with ME+EM this week to talk about my style during London Fashion Week. A lot of people, in the past myself included, feel like it’s an opportunity to get dressed up, with the hope that they’ll be spotted by one of the top street style photographers and find themselves on WWD or Who What Wear the next day. Yes, I have to admit, it’s exciting to see yourself on one of these sites but at what cost does it come; sore feet, being freezing cold, and most importantly being snapped in something that probably isn’t your true style. I still made the mistake last season of wearing heels for one day and my feet were ruined for weeks.
Feeling comfortable and confident are essential for me during London Fashion Week. There’s nothing worse than worrying about where to find a plaster whilst running between shows. I live in flats most of the time, as I’m often running all over town when I’m out anyway, and heels aren’t practical – I save them for special events and dinners out with the hubby. During London Fashion Week I now stick to flats, usually a pair of Common Projects as they don’t rub my feet. With trainers I’ll often wear a pair of tailored trousers, I like the balance between smart and casual. This particular pair with their paper bag waist are the most flattering trousers I own, I have them in black, too. They are ever-so slimming. And, it probably comes as no surprise to see me in stripes (#addictedtostripes). It’s a look I feel super comfortable in and leaves me to focus on taking in the new collections, the reason I’m there in the first place.
