Find Your London Fashion Week Style

London’s street style is noted the world over, and where better to see the cream of it than at London Fashion Week? Based on LFW street style, I’ve put together an affordable outfit from the George at Asda range – proof that you don’t have to spend a fortune on designer clothes to stand out from the crowd!

By keeping one eye on the current trends and remembering to be practical and comfortable, it’s possible to put together a stylish look on a budget that would fit right in at the BFC Show Space in Soho (the new venue for LFW) and be on-trend for 2016.

Typically, the weather in February is well suited to the Autumn/Winter collections. Layering is key, so my outfit is based around an asymmetric belted tunic worn over a long-sleeved top for warmth (a roll neck is still THE neckline to be seen in). A pair of lightweight, slim trousers are a great layering piece, and these monochrome printed trousers are a fun paisley pattern and have flattering elasticated cuffs. To complete the look I’ve topped it with that fashionista essential: outerwear worn like a cape. The ribbed waterfall cardigan is thick, warm and being black, it obviously goes with everything.

Wearing bright shades is a bold choice, but if you’re reluctant to splash the colour, these darker, richer tones will stop you blending into the background, and you can keep shoes and accessories neutral if you wish.

Talking of shoes, the stiletto may have reigned supreme for a number of years now, but it’s slowly being replaced by the block heel. Its foot-friendly styling gives you support as well as a little height. The stone tassel court heels from George are the perfect blend of comfort and style and a footwear essential for any style devotee.

Clever use of accessories is a fool proof way to elevate your look. By saving on your outfit you can splash out on bags, hats or jewellery. I’m always partial to a large leather tote (vital for carrying essentials) and a hat, in this case a classic fedora which echoes the soft colour of the shoes. And finally: sunglasses! What fashionista is complete without an oversized pair?

Whether you’re channelling the latest looks off the catwalk or not, always go for something you’re comfortable wearing. Don’t think you have to drastically change how you dress – you’ll be more confident in an outfit that’s true to your personal style. Above all else have fun!

Not Dressed As Lamb is the fashion and personal style blog started by Catherine Summers in 2011 to see if she could improve her wardrobe choices as her forties were approaching. She writes the blog to actively encourage women to see that age is not a barrier to looking and feeling fabulous, and many of her posts challenge the notion of “age appropriate” dressing that, in her opinion, is so outdated. Catherine believes that women of all ages should wear things they like, what suits them, and what is appropriate to the occasion, not their age.

 She was very proud to have won the Bloggers’ Lounge award for Best Fashion Blog 2015, and has been shortlisted for the UK Blog Awards’ Best Fashion/Beauty Blog for two years running.

 Catherine covers topics such as the ageing process, health and beauty and thoughts on fashion, as well as continuing to feature her own personal style.
