When Harrods asked if I would weigh in on how to wear the trends this season, I thought it might be worth adapting my wording to current times. Less fashion jargon, more practical info. And by practical, I obviously mean social medial, or how to spread the #OOTD FOMO all day erryday.
For thy that hasn’t been instagramed was never worn, am I right or am I right? Hashtag outfit goals.
Matchy-matchy dressing is not news, but updating your one-colour combo to earthy hues (Fall’s new favourite) will def propel you to the top of your fashion game. Statuesque posing, however, is no longer enough to ensure that double tap. Posing by a similarly clad statue, on the other hand, will. Insta-gold.
Because Monday ce n’est pas mon day. Because your brain never works at the beginning of the week so caption writing should never take more than five seconds of your time. Because #thestruggleisreal, always. Turn your most oversized coat into the cosiest of duvet’s and pretend you are still in bed. Just remember, you do have to leave the house and make it into work or your boss might report the post. Or your sorry ass.
Gender fluidity might be so-hot-right now, but it’s nice to go back to basics and show the two chromosome you were afforded at birth some love. Be a real girl for a change: embrace your softer side in head-to-toe creamy pastels and just wait for the free hugs.
Hide the Ketchup.
Cozy enough to count as PJs, haute enough for you to feel like the superhero of the house (LaundryWoman really should get more airtime), this one works best for lazy freelancers and/or deluxe homeowners. Warning: for those like myself who tend to wear their lunch rather than eat it, this is not the day to attempt a #foodporn shoot, no matter how sexy your chilli flaked avo-on-toast is looking.
In partnership with Harrods.
Nothing quite like digging last season’s high street hit out from the trenches of your closet. The compliments come just as frequently as the year before but this time round the risk of accidental coordination with half of London’s population is down to 13,5%. Win win.
I guess I better be investing in the one that shall stay hidden this year, only to better shine next summer. Orange chevron has got a nice ring to it, wouldn’t you agree?
Every now and again you fall in love with an item of clothing that is completely out of character for you, yet so practically perfect in every way that you can’t help but give your signature style the day off.
Thus, today — and for one day only — I give you the new me: Keffiyeh Cam. In flaw length thick Palestenian-inspired weave, lined with pompoms and bouncing with jubilant colour, here is a dress that won’t go unnoticed. I added a boyfriend tee for that extra dose of urban appeal (I never like to look too beachy in the city) but can’t wait to go bare shouldered on the beach. Kicking about London in the summer never had such a Middle Eastern feel!
