Here’s Everything We Wore to the First Day of London Fashion Week

Team Who What Wear UK has downed tools in the office, jumped into the back seats of our sweet LFW ride—the very swish Overfinch— and left the regular grind behind in order to attend every possible show, presentation and party for London Fashion Week. The next five days have a lot in store, and it’s only natural that our outfit choices play a big part during this time.

It can be tempting to buy lots of new shouty, trend-led items for London Fashion Week that don’t exactly sit within the rest of your wardrobe. But our approach to fashion week dressing is to wear an outfit we’d wear to the office or a dinner on a normal week—just on a good hair day, when you’re slightly more ahead of the washing pile than usual. 

We’ll be wearing all of our old favourites, trying out new rental services to borrow special pieces and wearing new pieces that we know we’ll love far beyond fashion week. We’ll be charting the team’s look each day in this rolling gallery, directing you straight to he products you can still get a hold of, and offering alternatives for vintage or out-of-season items.

For day one Nell opted for an all-blue outfit, with a Zara dress she’s had for several years with a co-ordinating wrap wool coat. Her knee-high snakeskin boots were a Depop find. 

Alyss loves vintage shopping, and this neon fair-isle jumper is one of her most recent finds. She paired it with her gold Missoma hoops, Topshop 90s-style jeans and a green acid-coloured bag from the Who What Wear Collection (which is launching online next week!). 

Emma kept it simple for day one, wearing her trusty & Other Stories wool blazer, with flared jeans and a bright pink blouse with a pointed collar. 

Joy meanwhile means business in her pinstripe navy suit, which she paired with a second-hand J.W. Anderson bag from Vestiaire Collective borrowed for the weekend and a pair of ankle boots. The Who What Wear team love a chunky chain necklace as you can see, and Joy’s is vintage. 

Zoe saves her Gucci sweatshirt for best, and the first day of London Fashion Week counts as best. She borrowed a Balenciaga bag for the weekend from the new handbag rental platform Cocoon, and wore a faux-leather shacket from Topshop.
