The best part about Fashion Week, I always say, isnít the host of high-end brands that flock to the encircling rooms of Somerset House square in the hope of snagging a few new customers. Nor is it the array of the Ďof the momentí designers displaying their latest collections for the fashion elite to see and be seen at whilst they make their judgments. No, itís the street style; The every day Joeís of the world that turn up dressed their best in wearable day-to-day fabulousness.
Every year a sudden trend crops up over fashion week as if by magic. A collection of fashionistas, who seem to not know each other, all turn up to Somerset House dressed in the same style! An unorganised yet pre-ordained style decision, and this year Iím most proud to say itís turned up jeans!
At last a trend we can all wear and contentedly sigh in the knowledge that we are comfortable, but bang on trend!
Ever the flattering shape, turn-up jeans are a little looser In size, allowing any lumps or bumps to be hidden. They are often high-waisted and can be worn however you like: high heels, trainers, brogues, loafers. You name it.
One of my favouriteís Iíve found and fallen in love with are these blue and white, floral trousers from Fever Designs. Gorgeous with a power necklace, or more casual with a pair of sneakers and a baggy top; these trousers are screaming summer. Personally, Iím not a huge fan of colour but a small dash of white and blue can never be too frightening, and what better time to be adventurous than when it comes to trousers! A statement trouser can avert the eyes to other areas and bring an element of excitement to an otherwise grey day.
Turned-up jeans get my vote!
