Liverpool Street Style: Global Scouse Day

When it comes to fashion, Liverpool has a style all of its own, but stepping away from the stereotypical Scouse brow’s and curly blow dry’s, I wanted to find the true fashionistas of the city.

What better day to do this than on Global Scouse Day – 28th February. (If you’re not familiar, Scouse is an authentic Liverpool dish similar to a stew, served traditionally with pickled beetroot, pickled cabbage and chunky slices of bread and butter).

The lovely ladies of Liverpool once again did not fail to impress with a variety of styles and well put together ensembles. With the lingering bitter weather, layering is still the main focus of the season, with clever ways of wrapping up whilst looking as fabulous as ever.

The cape coat is bang on trend right now and seems to be a favourite cover up for Kim Kardashian as we’ve seen in multiple designs. I love the classic white shirt worn underneath and accessorised with a wide brimmed fedora hat, perfect for those chilly days.

Black Cape Blazer: Nasty Gal £44.11
White Longline Shirt: River Island £25
Block Heel Shoes: Topshop £58
Felt Floppy Hat: ASOS £20

There’s nothing more comforting than throwing on a big fur coat and tackling the freezing cold winds (especially in Liverpool). This laid back look is perfect for those days when comfort and warmth are neck-on-neck with looking good. Wear with a high neck swing dress and a comfy pair of flats and you’re ready to go.

Black Fur Coat: Alice & You £40
Ribbed Turtle Neck Swing Dress: River Island £32
Gold Trim Brogues: Missguided £20
Tan Across Body Bag: Dune £59

So we might well be creeping up to spring, but the weather is still very much in winter mode. The bobble hat is an accessory favoured by the celebs lately, particularly Millie (Mackintosh) Manderson who always looks fabulous in any kind of hat. I love the classic collarless black coat accessorised with a blue tote bag to add a pop of colour to an otherwise dull outfit.

Blue Mini Tote Bag: River Island £30
Black Suede Ankle Boots: Office £75
CASPAR  Pom Pom Hat: Amazon £13.90
Black Collarless Coat: New Look £30

Questionnaire: The Sustainability of Luxury Fashion

I'm currently in the midst of my fashion dissertation and would love for any readers to be a part of my research. I've put together a quick questionnaire (only 10 questions long) about luxury fashion and would be so grateful if you could take the time to complete this questionnaire to aid my primary research.

Thank you!

Gareth Pugh: LFW Return

One of my all-time favourite designers and a treasure to British fashion, it has been announced that Gareth Pugh will be ending his seven year break and returning to London Fashion Week in February 2015 during the autumn/winter showcase.

"London is where everything began for me. My creative family is here, our story is here. So I'm thrilled to acknowledge such an important milestone on home ground. At heart this is a creative decision - it feels timely and true to the spirit of the work." Pugh,

Let’s take a look at some of Pugh’s previous collections and remind ourselves of his incredible talent.
