Over the last few months I’ve spent a lot of time in London. I’ve already written about the inspiration I get from the city itself, but for sartorial stimulus I look to London’s ladies.
At London Fashion Week, I saw an outfit that really stuck in my head. A short leather skirt, oversized chunky knit, platform boots and bright lips. Such a simple look, but one that worked so well the street style photographers were falling over themselves to snap a shot. I’ve been searching for the perfect jumper to recreate the look, and I finally found it in Zara.
Metallic elbow patches? Yes please. I love the snugly, cosy jumper with the slightly slutty (sans tights, at least) leather skirt and fierce boots. If I wanted to be all fashion douchebag about it, I’d describe it as a juxtaposition of femininity and androgyny.
I’m heading to London again tomorrow and can’t wait to while away a few hours with some people watching, gathering inspiration for my wardrobe back up North.
Who or what is inspiring you today?
