Satin Skirts & Chunky Boots x LFW

There seems to be a running theme with our style: that feminine/masculine mix. Maybe it’s years of working in the fashion industry where it’s totally acceptable to wear anything you darn well want {even things that look totally crap} but don’t for goodness sake even think about wearing anything overtly sexy. Talk about fashion FAUX PAS. Fashion is full of contradictions and we kinda like it.  

 

 

You must have seen a bevy of bloggers wearing dresses and skirts with beaten up trainers. Or a pretty, feminine {or sexy} dress with clumpy boots. It’s the sort of styling that makes your mum mad. “You’d look so lovely if you just wore some nice high heels with that dress” Ok, so mums don’t get it, and don’t even get us started on what the guys think ‘cos well, we all know that they would prefer the sexy high heels too BUT if you are girls like us who dress for yourselves and not others then read on.

So for London Fashion Week: Take 2 feminine floaty skirts, 2 girly gingham tops and what do you stick on your feet? Big chunky biker boots, that’s what.

‘Cos: Fashun.

This time of year plays havoc on your sartorial choices as one day it’s hinting at Spring and the next, well its pissing it down not. So from a practical point of view this footwear choice works. It also ticks the fashion boxes that your mum hates and dresses down what could be a fairly dressed up outfit {swap boots for fine strap stilettos and leather biker jacket or a blazer for the evening version}

We love the fabric contrasts of tough leather, slinky satin, crisp gingham cotton and soft worn in denim too. We are women after all so we are allowed to be a whole heap of contradictions. Much to our mums horror and the repelling of men. But you know what, we are ok with that.
