This week, we peek into the weekend wardrobe of Elspeth Pierce, a fashion stylist for fashion shows around the world, a TV presenter, blogger and radio host for Hoxton Radio, presenting the Supermalt Hoxton Fashion Show, every Wednesday 10am-12pm. The show is all about reporting on trends and happenings in East London and beyond, with high profile fashion guests and exclusive news from inside the industry.
Elspeth’s style is fashion forward meets practicality, often swapping the skyscrapers for the sneakers as she jogs from appointments to shows in her busy diary, “It’s all about selecting key pieces from the current trends while injecting your own personality and style into the look.”
Friday: This was when I was heading into the Ashley Isham show at LFW SS16 with Fashion Scout, blogging from the FROW. I was rushing around at shows and events so this outfit multitasked for me, practical, yet chic.
Khaki Trench Jacket – Topshop; Stripe Top – Zara; Leather Pleated Skirt – Oasis
Leopard Ankle boots – Office; Silver Clutch Bag – Whistles; Black Bag – LFW
Saturday: Heading out for cocktails with friends to Jub Jub at Callooh Callay, Rivington Street, Shoreditch. One of the few secret speakeasies left in London, harking back to the days when drinking liquors was prohibited, you walk through a wardrobe at the back of the bar and a whole new world awaits… great espresso martinis and top tunes. Love a bit of clashing prints and leopard is the ideal print to play with.
Fluffy Jacket – Reiss; White Cami Top – Topshop; E Necklace – Oliver Bonas
Check Trousers – Topshop; Two Part Heels – Office; Leopard Clutch – Kurt Geiger; Black and Gold Watch – Marc Jacobs
Sunday: My fave day of the week – heading off for a dog walk and Sunday roast with the hubby and our rescue Staffie, Mikey. Our best local is the Ivy House, Peckham, the first community run pub in the UK, and serves dreamy Roasts. The outfit is super comfy but a bit of metallic in the accessories lifts the look, and trainers are my best friend – I have 14 pairs!
Biker Jacket – Zara; Stripe Top – Zara; Fedora Hat – Vintage; Silver Backpack – Whistles
