A LFW High by Rohma Malik
So London Fashion Week is literally around the corner and I can't even begin to explain my excitement! To me LFW is much more than just big brands showcasing their collections. It's about an entire industry coming together to truly celebrate individual fashion. Fashion to me is much more than a piece of clothing, it is about creativity that helps one express who they are. And nothing illustrates this any clearer than the absolutely stunning Street Style pictures taken by photographers. They never fail in capturing outfits that get the mind running as it is consistently high on a dosage of high inspiration.
If you're lucky enough to be in London during LFW (or Paris/Milan/New York) but are confused as to what it is you should wear, stop worrying. I have created three outfits. Each with a different theme in mind, and guaranteed to have you hitting those A/W 15 trends.
The first theme is Scandic Minimalism. It is true, no one does minimal outfits better than the Scandinavians. Therefore this entire outfit is from everyone's favourite Swedish high-street brand H&M. Note usage of the clashing prints (adding to an incredible statement).
The second theme is Sporty Nostalgia. Here the pieces used have a sport like feel to them. However the colours used and silhouettes adds a reminiscence of the 90's. One could argue that it is a colourful take on the Alexander Wang X H&M collaboration.
The third theme is Casually Loud. This is a perfect outfit for those who love fashion but prefer comfort over pain. By pairing some skinny fit denim with a loud loose-fit jumper, you're hitting the right keys but staying snug. To make the most of this casual outfit, simply add a pair of heels and you're good to go!
I hope this post has got you high on a dosage of inspiration. Share your take on these themes with us by using #LFWHigh
