London Fashion Week kicks off on Friday.
My day-job is as Senior Fashion and Beauty Editor of LOOK and this week the fashion team appeared in the mag showing off what they will be wearing to LFW.
My outfit in the picture is all about warmth, Topshop statement shoes (leopard, obvs) and a great coat, which I am wearing here as the <shoulder robe> or in real-life speak, coat that is casually draped about one’s shoulders. This is a camel one from M&S last season, but find similar here.
It’s a massive street style trend, as these images from New York Fashion Week a few days ago show:
It’s a quick and easy style trick too, one that shows you have put a bit of thought into an outfit when beneath you’re still wearing a toothpaste-stained sweatshirt and the trousers that should never be seen out of the house.
And if all else fails, you can always tell the kids you’re Supermum. Well, that’s hardly a lie is it?
Here are some of my current favourite coats to shoulder-robe.
