So this is quite an unexpected look from me, right? I'm usually a leggings kind of girl but I felt I should join the printed tapered trouser trend as they're set to be pretty big this season. I wasn't sure I had the right body type for this shape of trouser as I have quite short legs and wide hips. I actually think the pattern distracts away from the body shape and feel flatters the legs. Obviously there are particular patterns which can lengthen the legs like vertical stripes but I think this pattern works all over due to the mix of shapes used. I paired it with this studded blouse which I tucked into the waistband to create a smart and tailored look. I wasn't sure if adding a statement necklace may be a little too much but looking at these photographs I think it really brings the outfit together. If you can't go all out during Fashion Week, when can you?

I was in desperate need of a pair of day sandals with a slight heel to pair with leggings and dresses to create a smarter look than my usual AA dancing shoes. I found these beauties in Kurt Geiger and since I still had my £25 Elle voucher I thought I would put it to good use. I love the double gold buckle detail on the sides and they are a nice delicate change from my usual chunky heels. I'm not sure if I'm quite ready to venture into the stiletto regions yet but these are a step in the right direction.

I'm back at London Fashion Week tomorrow, possibly attending the Michael Van Der Ham show which will be incredible and doing my usual street style work for Styloko. I'm absolutely loving this change of work at the moment and really don't want it to end! It's so nice to be involved in something I love so much and I just feel really lucky to have had the opportunity to be a part of it this year. And may there be many more!
