Today is the final day of London Fashion Week AW17, this weekend I was lucky enough to attend LFW for the first two days, as a Christmas present from my girlfriend. I had a great time capturing street style images outside of 180 The Strand (Home of LFW) and an amazing evening watching the Joshua Kane AW17 Show held at the London Palladium.

I love seeing what my favourite style influencers, bloggers and celebrities wear to Fashion Week so I thought that I would share my own outfits from the two days I was there. I kept to my personal casual streetwear style, and was really pleased with my looks.

Winter Streetwear OOTD

OUTFIT:

 Jacket – Ralph Lauren (Sold Out) / Hoodie – Pablo (Sold Out) / Jeans – Boohoo Men’s / Hat – Topman / Shoes – Adidas Stan Smith / Rucksack – Lacoste (Sold Out)

A/W Fashion is my favourite simply because you can wear more clothes, which means layers and in my opinion, much better outfits, in Summer you typically pair 2/3 items whereas in A/W you start pushing 5/6 pieces within one look, it also allows for the addition of coats and jackets, which are my ultimate weakness – I just can’t have enough.

Winter in England has been fairly mild this year, so this has been one of my go-to outfits, a few layers but still a fairly light jacket and on the colder days paired with a hat. The base of this look is a pair of washed black biker jeans – a favourite of mine because the texture helps create a more interesting look than basic black jeans. I then chose my black Pablo hoodie (with any top underneath, but if you’re looking to add even more layers I would suggest a striped or white longline t-shirt that drops just below the hoodie) – the base of this look is fairly simple but the addition of accessories like a hat and jacket bring it all together into a more solid look.

The jacket I put with this outfit is my favourite jacket from my collection… it’s a navy embroidered bomber jacket from Ralph Lauren and I adore it! I think it’s a perfect streetwear item, especially with embroidery being so popular at the moment with brands such as Gucci –  I am always wearing it so it was 100% a worthwhile purchase. Another accessory I added to this outfit was my fur beanie, the bright orange fur worked perfectly with the colours of the embroidery on the jacket and I love it’s addition to this look. To finish off the look I wore clean white Stan Smith trainers, simply because they’re super comfy and work perfectly with any casual look.

This outfit, as I said, is definitely one of my go-to winter looks, it’s got plenty of layer to keep you warm and also has a great sense of streetwear style, the puffy bomber jacket and hoodie creating the perfect streetwear silhouette.

Christmas Goodies

If you’re anything like me, you’re nosey, and love seeing what other people get for Christmas, so I have compiled a post of my favourite gifts from this Christmas.

Firstly, clothing. From my family, I got a pale grey Ralph Lauren Hoodie, which I was thrilled with because I’ve been after one for a while. It’s so comfy and I’ve pretty much lived in it since I unwrapped it on Christmas morning.  Another thing I’d been after for a long time is the grey Calvin Klein Jeans sweatshirt, that I got from Eleanor. I love it. It’s a great street style sweatshirt, which is a look I’m really into at the moment and I can’t wait to showcase it more in an outfit post.

Next on my list of favourite presents is my Hermès Goliath bracelet.  I love the Hermès brand, their leather goods are gorgeous and their packaging is to die for, so on Christmas day, when I received a little orange box I was more than excited. Inside was the Goliath bracelet which, as a lover of wrist wear, I had been looking at adding it to my collection. It’s simple and understated and will work with pretty much any look.

Moving on, we have a selection of grooming products. A few things from Bumble and Bumble, all from their ‘Surf’ range. The popular Surf Spray, which I have been using all year and was very happy to receive some new bottles of because mine had recently ran out and the matching shampoo and conditioner, which I’ve never tried before but if they’re anywhere near as good as the surf spray I will love them. Also, they came in a little travel set which will be perfect to take away with me on some 2016 adventures! Then their is the Kiehl’s Oil Eliminatior toner water for men. Recently I’ve been noticing that my skin has become a little more oily than usual and I wanted to tone that down a bit (excuse the pun) which is why I added this toner water to my Christmas wish list.

Finally, a small, stylish tech accessory that is an Apple Watch and iPhone wooden docking station. Both of your exisitng chargers can slide into the dock and then your items simply sit on top. This will not only look great on my bedside table but keep all of my tech organised and charged up all the time!

I hope you all had a great Christmas, I’d love to hear what you got too; so feel free to leave a comment below or tweet me a pic – @adjoka99
