Become a Meadham Kirchhoff Babe

22 Feb

If you’re anything like me you will have been squealing with delight to see the explosion of sequins, pom-poms and fun fur that Meadham Kirchhoff sent down the catwalk yesterday (me, albeit, watching online from the comfort of my bedroom.)   Here are some of my favourite looks from the collection:

It features many similar silhouettes to their Spring collection but with even more bonkers layering; broad-shouldered crop-bodied jackets, large-collared shirts and a-line skirts

But if your budget doesn’t stretch to the real deal, here’s some of my suggestions for bringing some of that MK  fun into your life:

1. Get flatforming.

I bought these lil’ puppies back in October for a mere £14, and oh how people laughed at me. Well, ladies, in the wise words of Nathan Barley “Today: ridicule, tomorrow: really cool.”

2. Remember: More IS More

Sew pom-poms along the hem of a dress of a cardigan, or loop a pair on to the front of your new flatforms.  Cover everything you own in diamontes or stickers.

Stock up on disc sequins, the bigger they are the less sewing you have to do. And sew appliques onto jumpers and blouses – I got this one for £1 at Hobbycraft.

3. Think: party bag chic

Remember those packs of 6 bangles/ beaded bracelets/ rings/ yo-yos you could buy, to fill goodie bags for guests to take home at the end of a party? Well that’s exactly the kind of accessories we’re looking for here. The more plastic-y and colourful the better. Take a look in the party section of larger Tesco stores, or perhaps Toys-R-Us. If Woolworths still existed it would surely be the mecca of the Meadham Kirchhoff babe.

4. Listen to more Marilyn Manson

Because you listen to too much Hole, right?

Congratulations to Meadham Kirchhoff for captivating the entire fashion world yet again!

You can watch the whole show back online at the Topshop website
