*London Fashion Week klaxon*. You’ll be pleased to know I’m not actually around for LFW this season – as you are reading this I am away on a shoot in Lisbon. Lucky for me I get some sunshine, and lucky for you as you don’t get bombarded with too many LFW posts…
Or maybe a few. When L.K. Bennett asked me to style up their ‘Social Skirt’ – the Kensal floral – in my way, I jumped at the chance because a) I love a full skirt and b) it gave me fashionable content to upload for LFW whilst I was away on a shoot probably in jeans, trainers and no make-up (as a blogger, you have to consider these things!).
It’s social for a few reasons – we live in such a social world these days this is how most of us attain information. But also L.K. Bennett’s midi skirt is fast becoming one of those pieces that they’re known for – it’s synonymous with the brand – and when Style Icons like Caroline Issa are wearing them to Fashion Week, you know it’s kind of a big deal.
It’s quite unusual for a bit of a tomboy like myself to wear a midi skirt but I am often seen wearing them – I love how they make me feel that little bit more dressy. And by wearing with my current favourite (mens – size S) cashmere slouchy jumper brings it back to more my style.
It has also come at a good time as I was worrying about what to wear for my London Fashion Weekend talk on 27th September – especially after discussing outfits with Erica from The Edited (who will be there with me) – and we were almost going to wear the same thing!! So, this skirt answers everything – smart enough to look ‘wow’ but could also be dressed down with a shirt and some fab flats (I’m thinking lace-up flats as it will be a long day).
But we should probably talk about the shoes…they’ve already had a lot of love on instagram – and the piano key monochrome looks fab with everything – from skinny jeans to a full skirt. The heel height is actually pretty good for walking, too (but they also come in a slightly lower heel – which are cheaper, too, here).
