Comfort and casual

The most important thing to remember about a fashion show is that you’ll mostly be sitting and watching. Therefore, it’s important to make sure you’re comfortable, and the best way to do this is to keep your look casual. While we don’t mean throw on your tracksuit, just think about everyone you see there – you don’t see people looking like they’re attending the MET Gala off the catwalk. So, maybe opt for simple jeans or trousers and a plain top with a jacket, nice boots or shoes for the ultimate casual style, with a few simple accessories too.


Speaking of your accessories, these are the ideal way to help brighten up any outfit while also making a simple statement. Simple yet stylish accessories are always the way to go – after all, if they’re too big they’ll distract from the outfit. From a nice gold or silver ring to a cute pair of dangly or stud earrings and maybe even a statement necklace, these are the way to go to help liven up a casual outfit. Make sure you only do one or two, as too many will overpower your look.

Of course, the time of year will also affect this. So, be sure to consider all of this before planning your outfit as it may be the difference between wearing a shirt and blazer or wearing a jumper and a coat.
