As Inspired By… London Fashion Week Street Style

Posted in Daily Outfits, Fashion.

I’ve always maintained that clothing is much more interesting when worn by ‘real’ people. That’s why I read blogs, not editorials – I love to see how trends are taken from the catwalk and transformed into Tesco-suitable outfits.

Although there were many, many outlandish outfits at London Fashion Week, there were also lots of impeccably dressed regular folk. It was easy to pull out the popular looks – soft, loose jumpers with ladylike skirts, tailored trousers in block colours – and I soon spotted a theme. The people most popular with street style photographers, including lovely bloggers Jazmine and Gem, went for a 90s grunge look. There was lots of draping and studs; chunky DM boots and leather jackets; deep plum and black. So I watched an episode of Daria and delved into my wardrobe to recreate the style.

Lasercut blouse c/o Republic, Topshop jeans, belt and necklace, Primark wedges

I love the delicate lasercut detail on this pretty blouse. Teamed with high waisted skinnies (these are the black version of my beloved Topshop Kristens) and wedge shoes (a Primark bargain at £16), the look is less girly and more grunge – as seen on the cobbles at Somerset House this season.

What do you think – will you be trying the grunge trend for AW11?



I totally agree… I love to see how high street style is put together with real people with clothes off the high street because really, who can afford anything in editorials?



I love Daria! I am kind of gutted that I sold my doc martens a few years ago too. They would be perfect for this winter. I love that blouse, it’s edgey but still pretty.


haha…used to love Daria. I’m rather excited for 90’s grunge being in – it’s making my inner teen a very happy girl indeed. Now, if only I hadn’t thrown out my biker boots…


I absolutely love the grunge look, leather, studs, DM’s, plum and black are some of my favourite fashion features, so grunge is fantastic for me.
The blouse is beautiful, I love the lasercut detailing too x

I love that shirt! and this whole look. Can’t beat a wedge boot!
I noticed the whole grunge look, and think it’s great, ear cuffs, leather, studs and relaxed hair. Fab!



I adore Daria. ‘lah lah lah lala’.

The nod toward punk/grunge makes me really happy, as it’s naturally what I am drawn to.

LOVE the shoes. They have a definite style nod to creepers. 🙂
