After even a brief encounter with sisters Jess and Stef of the blog How Two Live, one thing becomes immediately apparent: these two love to have a good time. From their boldly patterned outfits to their overall joie de vivre, this duo brings a welcome dose of rainbow-bright fun wherever they go. The ladies may hail from Australia, but their style is 100% on par with that typical of London Fashion Week designers: quirky and colorful with nary a dull moment in sight. Here, see how Jess and Stef navigate the LFW storm in style.
P.S. Follow along as Jess and Stef take over our Instagram account for the day with real-time updates from the hustle and bustle of LFW!
How Two Live Takes LFW
LFW Essential: Lilya Lambswool Jackets
"These Lilya jackets are #1 on our LFW packing list. We have these beautiful jackets from a few seasons back and never brave the cold without them. They’re so warm and gorgeous, and we’ve yet to find an outfit they don’t go with."
LFW Essential: Pentax KS1 Camera
"There’s so much sartorial goodness to be captured at fashion week and we never want to miss getting the perfect snap—enter our Pentax DSLR. We also recently added a 50mm lens so now our 'blogger blur' background is always on point."
LFW Essential: On-Point Nail Art
"WAH Nails is where we first fell in love with this crazy trend and now we’re completely obsessed with nail art. We always go all out with our matching manicures for fashion week, and this year will be no exception."
LFW Essential: Klorane Dry Shampoo
"Usually our long hair requires a lot of love and attention, but when we’re on the go we don’t have hours to spend taking care of it. (We can’t all have a glam squad on hand 24/7!) We’ll always have dry shampoo handy to keep our locks looking fresh and tame."
LFW Essential: Flatforms
"We love the height that heels add but can’t stand having sore feet, especially when we’re running around to shows all day at fashion week. Flatforms are the perfect way to get the height but skip the blisters."
British Designers To Watch
"We’re super excited for House of Holland—it was our favorite show at Tokyo Fashion Week last year so we can’t wait to see what Henry pulls out on his home turf. Ashish is another show we’re really looking forward to—he shares our love of print and color, and we love seeing what he does each season. (Remember that Topshop light-up shoe collab? Everything.)
London Style Inspiration
"Londoners have such crazy style and we follow so many of them for inspiration, so we’re hoping to spot a few of them around town. Susie Bubble has been one of our favorites to watch for years. We also LOVE British blogger group Confetti Crowd—they’re kind of like Instagram’s answer to the Spice Girls. Oh, and Cara Delevingne—who doesn’t want to spot (and become best friends with) her?!"
Favorite London Hotel
"We recently stayed at the Sanderson Hotel in Soho and absolutely loved it. The location is perfect, the beds are comfy and they have the most delicious Mad Hatter’s afternoon tea!"
