Another season of London Fashion Week is over, and with it the street style looks that will inspire our autumn/winter wardrobe. While there were plenty of trends to pick from, including colour blocking (hot pink and burnt orange will be huge for spring) and tonal dressing, it was the accessories that truly stood out.
In particular: shoes. From Day 1 of London Fashion Week through to the end, there were two pairs of shoes that I saw on virtually every fashion editor (including myself) and influencer I met, a sure sign that they are worth investing in, which is good news as you can still buy them now, and one of them will only set you back £129…
The Kurt Geiger Orsan dad sandals
Hiking sandals are going nowhere fast, and this Kurt Geiger style is the one I kept seeing consistently at the shows. At one point, I counted three editors wearing them on the front row. Not only are they great to run around all day with, but they go with everything. Some editors wore them with billowy dresses, others with jeans and a blazer.

For when sandal season is well and truly over, it’s all about lace up boots, in Manu Atelier’s duck boots were everywhere on the cobbles, paired with everything from jumpsuits to silk dresses. I myself wore them and can attest they are as comfortable as they are stylish.
