London Fashion Week is in full swing which makes this remarkable city the focus for La Vie Chic’s Jet-setter Journal that gives inspiration to those wanting to make a statement while on travels. The home to Big Ben and Tower Bridge as well as those adorable royals, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, London is also a leader when it comes to fashion trail-blazing and trend-setting. After having the incredible experience of living in this metropolis, I can certainly attest to the fact that London stands out among the rest when it comes to unique fashion and trends.
Celebrities from near and far have made their way to the runway shows at this week’s events and many are worth noting for their eye-catching ensembles that scream London street style at its best while also melding right in to make the front row fashion a show in itself. Have a peek at the starlets who have donned some mention-worthy wear and inspire you in your selections for your trip to this magnificent city on the Thames.
Pretty In Prints For A Tour About Town:
Ellie Goulding reminds us that the onset of fall deserves some pretty and colourful pieces in our wardrobe as well. Pairing an edgy choker with an off-the-shoulder printed dress, and adding black ankle boots is the perfect ensemble not only for fashion week, but to head out for a day in Hyde Park or hitting the charming shops of Notting Hill.
Standout-Chic For High Tea And Oxford Street Browsing:
Olivia Palermo inspires in fashion choice no matter which city she is in. Don a silk blouse under a neutral cashmere or wool vest with, or without a high neck, and pair these with a sleek set of wide-leg trousers. Olivia is not afraid to add that pop of fiery red, so you shouldn’t be either.
Anything But Basic Black For Dinner In Covent Garden Or A Show At The Apollo:
Laura Bailey wows in her black-on-black ensemble involving shoulder-baring cutouts and a classic bowed neck feature. The sheer and detailed skirt perfectly complement her metallic boots that are daring but can up your fashion game a notch. London fashion is all about pushing the boundaries, on and off the runway. Go bold. Sophie Hermann reminds that it’s all in the footwear in her statement black and cobalt blue anchors to her look. A cross-body purse is all the rage and can be very handy while attempting to sip a cocktail or two out on the town in the evening.
Casual London Chic For A Tour Of Trafalgar Square And An Afternoon By The Thames:
Daisy Lowe does London day wear perfectly pairing her spicy boots with high-waist trousers, a hip tee and a suede jacket to complement. You’ll be set for the fall temperatures and look like a local in this effortless yet appealing style.
It’s clear that London, royalty, fashion and fashion royalty go hand-in-hand, as attested by Anna Wintour in her gorgeous midi-length Erdem coat with fur cuffs.
