In my Industry this time of year is ruled by Fashion week. It is a time when we leave the past behind and look forward for the future however this year more than ever, it seems as though fashion is pulling from the past.
Right now, in London street style especially feels like a throwback, but I’m not complaining. Walking the streets and seeing all these incredible outfits is making me want to pull together all my favourite trends from the 80s, 70s and 60s and combine them all at once. When it comes to making these era’s feel fresh and modern it is is all about the subtleties; round lens’s, oversized shirts and high-rise blue wash jeans to name but a few.
This outfit is essentially just a shirt and jeans but its elevated into something a little more interesting simply because of the combination of different fabrics and silhouettes. When you experiment with proportions and different fabrics you’ll be surprised at how quickly an outfit comes together. This outfit is a bit bohemian and a lot of attitude but is still extremely comfortable which is key when you’re running all over London.
This oversized velvet shirt is Etro. Etro is known for its paisley pattern that has become somewhat of a house signature however even when their pieces aren’t done in paisley they still retain a boho-chic aesthetic. An oversized velvet shirt would be dangerous territory for most but Etro is able to keep it looking and feeling feminine with excellent tailoring. I’ve layered a simple silk camisole underneath and if there is one piece of advice i can give it is that you get a simple black silk camisole into your wardrobe (it is the most versatile item you’ll ever own). This one is an old JCrew number however you can pick one up anywhere (Aritzia’s Minou Camisole is a great option at a friendly price point).
These incredible high waisted, deconstructed jeans are Frame and I love them, they are such an easy way to take any outfit to the next level. Frame arrived on the scene in 2012 but has really come into their own in the past few years. They have expertly achieved the fine balance of designing denim that’s both of-the-moment and still classic. If you want to keep up with the trends, take a look at what Frame is up to. There jeans are pricey but worth the splurge, they last for years and even my older pairs are still relevant in my wardrobe.
