Nothing brightens up a windy, grey, miserable day more than a burnt orange coat and matching lips. Fashion week outfits are tricky. This February marked my second full LFW which means five blog-worthy (and street style worthy) outfits are completely essential to planning. But no matter how hard I plan, I always change my mind on the day and end up wearing a total alternative.
A last minute Thursday night trip to Primark saw me pick up this adorable short-suit. Mono-check print, loose flowing short, and a matching bomber jacket. Can you get a more modern interpretation of Cher from Clueless? I couldn’t have felt more preppy if I tried.

A Night of Fashion Film.
Men wandering around topping your glass up with champagne? I can deal with that. Also spied my ultimate girl crush, Daisy Lowe, which is always a bonus. Then stopping by the PPQ party at the Sanderson Hotel followed by Linda Farrow X NYNY party: I’m talking stained glass windows, stuffed deer on the roof, suits of armour, strange PVC clad dancers and shots in skull glasses.
