LFW 2015 blue mirrored ray bans and pink lipstick

Oh London, you are beautiful, ugly, classy, tacky, hot, cold, conservative and crazy, all of this embodied in the audience visiting London Fashion Week. For me, the trotting around the shows is the real magnet to come to LFW: To be inspired, to soak up the creativity and to meet new interesting people. Enjoy my pictures taken of best and worst of LFW Street style.

Above: Mirrored blue aviator Ray Ban: Check. Heavily pigmented pink lipstick: Check. Must-have furry coat: Check. Effortless cool. I could never wear this combo but this stylish creative pulls it off to perfection.

LFW 2015 Street style head mask Wow, she has attitude. I love her expression while I’m pondering if the head mask it the new trend for 2015.

Street style LFW 2015 blue coat, hat, flats

I adore this look in all it’s simplicity: Snakeskin printed loafers, cream trousers, baby blue winter coat.

LFW Street Style 2015 pleated leather skirt, blue Nike LFW in February is freezing so getting a break from the chill  is essential to recharge batteries. The blue Nike trainers lend the black leather pleated skirt and the thick woolen tights some edge, while the silver puffer jacket keeps this Fashion-week-goer toasty.

 

LFW 2015 Street style blue Cos skirt

This skirt length is so difficult to pull off as it makes most people (including me!) look small and disproportionate. However this fashionista nailed it! Pointy heels elongate the leg and the ankle straps emphasise skinny ankles. Love the blue A-line skirt from COS.

London Fashion Week 2015

London Fashion Week Pink coat max and co, AgL shoes, minnie mouse ears

It’s the time of the year again for London Fashion week at Somerset House. Whilst the shows themselves are for invitation holders only, a lot of the action happens in the courtyard of Somerset House – via a huge live screen you can follow the shows, visit many of the side shows hosted by Topshop and River Island,  pop into a blow-out or braid bar or have a coffee at Tom’s diner to relax from all the excitement.

This year, I left Rebel in Hamburg as we just spent a sisterly weekend together in Paris. With Mr Romantique in tow, I threw on my favourite pink coat and Minnie Mouse ears. When going to London Fashion Week, I’m never trying to keep up with the fashionable London crowd – they are way to eccentric for me. Instead, I stay true to myself and wear what I would wear to the office. I do allow myself one fun, quirky accessory though. Last year, this was a pair of sequinned cat ears. This year, I’m following up with Minnie Mouse ears and a pink bow as the cherry on the cake.

I am wearing:

  • Pink pastel coat by Max & Co
  • Pink patent leather oxford lace-ups by AGL Attilio Giusti Leombruni
  • Chocolate brown leather pencil skirt by Ralph Lauren
  • Minnie Mouse glitter bow headband  by Claire’s accessories
  • Tortoise sunglasses by Prada
  • Merino tights by Falke

Stay tuned for a full run-down of my favourite LFW 2015 street style outfits.

The pink lace-ups are the perfect mix up feminine and masculine.

London Fashion Week Sept 2014 street style Les nereides alice earrings

I loved getting amongst the inspirational, stylish like-minded bloggers and designers at LFW September 2014.

Romantique’s round-up of the hottest and most romantic street styles of London Fashion Week!

Street Style 1: Tea Time in Paris

Gorgeous designer and blogger, Love, from The Girl Named Love is rocking jewellery from Les Nereides. The small Alice in Wonderland from the “Tea time in Paris” collection is to die for. Apart from her name, I also love Love’s laid back, chic style. Checkered sneakers, checked poncho and that rebel red lipstick! (Fire and Ice by Revlon).

London Fashion Week Sept Street style Gingham

Street style 2:  Brigitte Bardot Style in London

What’s not to love about this look? The Vichy gingham checked blouse – casually knotted, the A-Line leather skirt, the flat ballerina pumps and the natural make-up.  It’s like an excursion to the Cote d’Azur in the 50s.

London Fashion Week Sept Street style waffle coat

Street style 3: Fondant coloured Autumn Look

This sugary pastel blue, quilted waffle coat makes me long for chillier autumn days so I can wear coats again. The flat,  gold-chained slippers  mirro the gold buttons of the coat beautifully. The embroidered mini bag is the icing on the cake.

 

London Fashion Week Sept Street style lilac and purple

Street style 4: Lilac and Turqoise

In this outfit, lilac and turqoise go together like toast and Nutella! This is a romantic princess look with the little sparkly crown, embellished collar and soft dress. The clashes of the colours give it just the right amount of edge to balance the sweetness.

 

London Fashion Week Sept Street style sicilia dolce and gabbana

Street style 5: Greetings from Bella Italia

Ah Sicilia I miss you! This street style makes me reminisce about our holiday back in July. The cart wheels on the Dolce and Gabbana T-shirt look like a statement necklace.  Knitted pencil skirt from Ekaterina Kukhareva.

London Fashion Week Sept 2014 street style colourblock

Here’s a selection of Rebel’s favourite street style outfits at London Fashion Week September 2014!

Street style 1 colour-block (above):

This photo is an absolute cracker! I love her expressive eyes and attitude. Red and pink colour blocking is a great example of  perennial style.

London Fashion Week Sept 2014 street style colourblock wearable chic

Street style 2 wearable chic:

These are  classic outfits which oozes class.  This is a style you can wear to the office: Comfy but stylish flats in sliver and monotone. Classic white blouse, pencil skirts and classic tote bags. Et voila, the ueber cool look is complete!

London Fashion Week Sept 2014 street style Man in red

Street style 3 Man in Red:

I don’t love the entire outfit but it contains a few details I’d love to have in my wardrobe. With the red Celine bag and the pink high heels, this fashionisto is dressed to kill! Romantique loves the cat ears.

London Fashion Week Sept 2014 street style Parisienne Street style 3 La Belle Italienne:

I ADORE the entire outfit of this lady. Her style represents everything that is effortless chic. Lace pencil skirt and pointy strappy heels. No loud colours, no frill. Just pure elegance. We bet this lady is not British but hails from Milan.

London Fashion Week Sept 2014 street style Black and white

Street style 4: Baccara “Yes Sir I can Boogie”

These two  remind me of the 70s band Baccara. The band consisted of two women, one always dressed in white, the other one always dressed in black.

This stylish duo has taken the trend into the here and now by accessorizing it with Miu Miu sun glasses (left), fur and polka dots.

London Fashion Week Sept 2014 street style lilac mustard

Street style 5: Purple pencil and mustard teddy clutch

Two things stand out for me in this outfit: The exceptionally well fitted purple pencil skirt and the mustard yellow teddy fur clutch. A hot combination of colours and fabrics.

London Fashion Week september 2014 Streetstyle Romantique and Rebel

t’s fashion week in London!  Rebel flew in from Hamburg, especially for the occasion, which meant lots of “girly nonsense” time, as Mr Romantique disparagingly refers to our chatter.

Twice a year, this festival of style takes place at Somerset House – one of London’s major cultural venues in the heart of the city. You don’t need show tickets to enjoy the London Fashion Week atmosphere. The courtyard of Somerset house is open to the public.   British fashion is known for its classic heritage brands as well as edgy eccentric South East London style reflected by the many fashionistas flocking to LFW. Stay tuned for a full run-down of our favourite’s LFW outfits.

What to wear at London Fashion Week:

London is known for it’s gaudy, eclectic style, where everyone wants to stand out as unique. Rather than trying to keep up or even outdo the fashionistas, we dressed true to our own styles, picking wearable pieces that we might don in the office, whilst still looking slick.  For us, every day may as well be a fashion show! Rebel and I had lots of fun immersing ourselves in the eclectic London style mix, which we found to be a great source of inspiration.

 

Rebel is wearing:

  • Long pear necklace from Gabriele Frantzen
  • Skinny Jeans by Topshop
  • Blue sandals by Zara
  • Blue blazer with gold buttons by Tommy Hilfiger
  • red sunglasses by Paul Smith
  • Red lipstick: Ruby Woo by MAC

 

Romantique is wearing:

  • Bordeaux coloured dress and white Peter Pan colour by Max & Co
  • Leopard print pointy flats by BCBG
  • Macaron bracelet by N2 Les Nereides
  • Brown cross body bag by Moschino
  • Sunglasses wayfarer by Ray Ban
  • Red lipstick: Ruby Woo and Viva Glam by MAC
