LFW: Enjoy Fashion Week Style All Year Round

Missed London Fashion Week? Hit up all your favourite shows but still craving more? Not to worry, we know how you feel. When there are only two chances a year to enjoy the delights of what the design elite have to offer up to the capitals fash pack, the rest of the year can seem slightly lacking in the style and glamour stakes.

So, to capture that Fashion Week vibe 365 days of the year, we have compiled a guide of the best places to rework those much-loved elements of your favourite designers and most importantly what to wear when doing so. Hit up these places in you finest outfit and it will be like you’re at your own private Somerset House all year round…

Love the feminine look of Temperley? Try the refined luxury of Afternoon Tea at Claridges. Both uniquely British, think classic English rose elegance when dressing for this stylish pastime.

Can’t get enough of the loud and proud prints at House of Holland? It’s the show that always attracts the cool kids, so try the Dalston Superstore in trendy East London. Attracting a wide range of the young and beautiful, it’s the perfect place to have fun with the fashionista crowd. Anything goes fashion wise but remember, the hip kids don’t do dressing up so just don’t look like you’ve tried to hard.

Lusting after the luxury of Tom Ford? The tickets to his shows are like gold dust so head down to Balthazar in Covent Garden. The hottest restaurant of the moment and a favourite with the A-List, getting a reservation is not an easy task so instantly is a winner for evoking the Tom Ford mood. This is the place to be seen so play your fashion card and channel your inner Victoria Beckham (not circa 1998, obvs).

Throw on your favourite vintage inspired pieces with s touch of punk.

Kate O'Brien

Hi I'm Kate, in a previous life I was Womenswear Editor but these days you are more likely to find me pouring over a planning calendar than the latest copy of Elle in my role as Online Content Producer. A Northern tourist in London, some of my favourite things in life include red wine, chutney (accompanied by cheese), sequins, grey cashmere and Matt Damon. I am known in the HoF office for owning far too many coats for one person, laughing too loud, and drinking full fat Coke only when hungover. My life's ambition is a simple one; to own a Puggle.
