Go big or go home seemed to be the theme of this past weekend. When one attends London Fashion Week, they take on the opportunity to wear basically anything the heart desires. The more outrageous the better - a.k.a a fashionistas dream come true. You saw how amazing other attendees looked, now take a peek at how we dressed for the occasion!
Day 1 was all about the monochrome, a winter trend that we have been obsessing over recently. In order to add a little spice to our looks, we chose to both use a pop of blue to compliment our minimalist and masculine inspired attire.
Try these looks for yourself! Layer a structured button down under a basic blazer and add a statement necklace or some killer heels for a sophisticated, yet spicy look.
Day 2 brought out our edgy glam sides. We both chose to emphasize a bit of sparkle with some extra attitude. Samantha went full on metallic while Bri chose more of a punk princess vibe.
Never be afraid of what a little sparkle can do! Sequins are being used in all types of innovative ways this season. Start by purchasing a great metallic statement bag. Trust us, this will become your go-to piece when your look is in need of a little boost. Are you feeling a bit daring? Why not try a sequined shirt?! Throw it on with some boyfriend jeans and strappy sandals for a great going out look.
After two days of stalking the amazing looks our fellow fashionistas pulled out, we choose to be a bit more daring, using color on day three. We both incorporated a bit of fur in our looks. Fur has definitely been big on the catwalks and is now being used in more innovative ways than ever before (think the Karlito).
Why not try out a fur look in your wardrobe? Go for a daring fur jacket, like Bri wore on day three, or keep it subtle with a little fur accessory. Either way, you're sure to look like a rockin' winter princess.
We had so much fun taking our personal styles to the extreme. Try playing around with your closet. What would you wear to fashion week? You will likely discover pieces you never imagined pairing together that actually look great! It's important to let loose every once in a while and just let your personal style explode. As we saw this weekend, the possibilities are endless, so never be afraid to just full-out say, "This is me."
