I was invited by fashionchick.co.uk to enter their competition to win an all expenses paid trip to Amsterdam Fashion Week, simply by sharing with you all what I'd wear if I were to win! Recently I've been making plans for where I want to travel to in the next couple of years, and Amsterdam is definitely on that list. So you can imagine it would be a dream come true to win a two night stay in the beautiful city, especially during the best week of the year!
I'm starting this off with a bit of colour co-ordination. An all black outfit is simple and chic, just add a luxurious boyfriend coat to keep off the January chill with some downright perfect ankle boots and.. ta-dah! You've got a perfect Fashion Week look.
Note: I feel I must stress that high stiletto heels are only for the professionals. You will be on your feet all day figuring out the city and running from show to show, so how anybody does that in 5inch heels I'll never know. Us mere mortals should stick to flats or chunky low heels at the most. Trust.
My second outfit is a pretty girly one. You guys know I love the androgynous vibe of my leather trousers, and combining masculine with feminine pieces is all the rage right now. Just throw this pink fluffy coat over your shoulders and strut around pretending to be part of the fash pack. Sorted!
My last look is a little bit edgier. After falling out of love with tartan for a while I spotted this playsuit last weekend and fell in love all over again. For Fashion Week I'd pair it with tights (because.. brrr) and chunky ankle boots. Chuck on a cropped leather jacket and some dark lippy and you've got a laid back, grungy outfit. I'm channeling Kate Middleton by 'recycling' my hat and bag from the first outfit because why not?
So there you have it... I hope you liked having a peek at what I'd wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week. Please let me know which outfit is your favourite!
