LFW 2017: VINYL TROUSERS

/
0 Comments

Starting London Fashion Week in the BEST way: with a pair of statement trousers. Vinyl is one of the biggest AW17 trends - a tricky texture to wear. Usually anyway, although being 2017, all the fashion rules you thought you knew are out the window and replaced with one: there are no rules. That in mind, it's exactly right to wear plastic trousers, coats, handbags etc. 


I went for a black skinny style, these ones are from Missy Empire, very flattering and although they're quite a statement they're still a classic look. What's great about these, similar to denim, they go with pretty much anything. Replacing you jeans with a pair of vinyl trousers will instantly bring your whole wardrobe into this season. They can even be worn with more vinyl - more is more remember!



For a daytime Kardashian style look they'd be great with a hoodie or an oversized tee (you'll definitely see me trying this out btw) but since I'm attending a formal event, I went for this stunning little crop top from Missy Empire - this automatically made the outfit way more party-ready. 


Metallics are another strong trend - and yes I know metallics are pretty much always in - they're having a special resurrection thanks to the Chanel space show earlier this year. I'm loving the icy feel of silver, especially when paired with winter pastels, so think aluminium rather than gunmetal when choosing metallics, slightly more feminine to balance out the heavy vinyl.


This is why I also accessorised with this leather pouch crossbody bag. It's really simple and the kind of bag that will go with any outfit. It definitely adds a luxurious touch to a daytime look.



Since it's London Fashion Week, the weather is always trying to mess with my outfits. I added this sweatshirt from Wear the Walk. Nothing says 'I'm ready for Autumn' like a high neck. The patchwork/reconstructed patterns on this work perfectly with the slick trousers.
