It was a rare moment indeed for us girls at London Collections: Men we were outnumbered but were we out styled? Not at all. The biggest trends were high ankle boots, anything leather and wide brim hats.
Fedora and Wide Brim Hats
If one trend has taken off this year in London it has to be the hats for women. The wider the more stylish it looked. The women mainly wore them with cropped jackets and the colour chosen was black. For me hats, this size was well overdue and it beats holding an umbrella. More so if you are having a bad hair day, the hat is a winner every single time.

This timeless Chanel inspired jacket is a clear winner for last year let alone this year. It looks great with skirts, jeans and loving it teamed with leather. The only key to remember is to make sure the colour suits you and the length of the jacket is just above your waistline. It looks frumpy if worn too big let alone too small. Wearing a jacket over your shoulders, even by Sarah Ann, is a hot trend to adopt.
Who says pearls are for the elderly? You look great Catherine Senor.
Ankle High Boots
Women were wearing these with skirts, leather trousers, jeans and anything that makes a statement. My favourites were gold. Good thing we didn’t have to walk too far to admire the men’s collections. Fashion caution, practice walking in them before you step out in the public.
Wicked, cool and edgy
