I’m not suggesting you roll up to the club in your bikinis, ladies, I simply love the idea of using cheap tankinis as layering pieces. Being a bit more tactile than your everyday cami, the look and feel really adds something unusual and sensual to a textured outfit. Because of this ensemble’s colour bomb effect, I suggest you keep accessories to a minimum and avoid overkill.
You know how it goes; you stumble on some random Youtube video one moment and end up with an orange trench coat on your doorstep the next. Case in point? Very’s celebrity fashion collaboration video (below!) and the Jameela Jamil double-breasted mac.
This is now probably the easiest item I have at my disposal to throw on and feel ‘dressed’. For the influx of ridiculously temperamental and bright so-called Autumn days ahead, outfits like these are going to be my bread and butter.
What I Wore:
Westwood Rocks Russian Dream bracelet
The aforementioned eye-popping trench coat
Crew Clothing Breton top
Handmade pencil skirt that has always been far too long (therefore warm!)
Jane Shilton Frankfurt cross-body and tote handbag
This week – unless you happened to catch me in bed – you would have been 100% sure to find me in a cape. Blame it on the weatherman (hello B*Witched, how did you find your way into my head?) but I have swapped every flouncy top and dress for an Autumn-friendly collection of heavy capes. The obsession has reared its yearly head.
Need. MOAR. CAPES.
Get The Look:
3.1 Phillip Lim Gold Delia Chelsea Boots (readers of my shoe blog will know I’m obsessed)

As fun as it would be to get all Anna Dello Russo on the street style photographers of Fashion Month, covering shows for three different outlets and styling in between means all of my London Fashion Week ensembles had to err on the side of practical. Louboutins out, comfy heels and platform sneakers in. Regardless, I seem to have found a little way to sparkle each day. See the full roundup, below!
