What better way to successfully navigate London Fashion Week than by consulting a local style star for expert advice? With that theory in mind, we tapped Pandora Sykes—Fashion Features Editor for The Sunday Times and manager of her own sharply written, eponymous blog—to share how she dresses for (and what excites her most about) the whirlwind week across the pond.
P.S. Follow along as Pandora takes over our Instagram account today with updates from LFW!

"I am really excited to see some new girls walk in London this season. I worked with Zlata Semenko when she was just starting out, and I've watched her have a successful season in New York walking for Alexander Wang, amongst others. I'm looking forward to seeing her walk in London."
British Designers She's Excited About

"The shows I get most excited about seeing are J.W. Anderson, Jonathan Saunders, Simone Rocha, Marques Almeida and Christopher Kane. They really define London fashion for me."
What She'll Be Wearing
A look from N-DUO-CONCEPT's upcoming collection
"I get most excited about small global lines, like Danish brands Cecilie Copenhagen and Saks Potts and a Georgian brand called N-DUO-CONCEPT, who I will be wearing at LFW. Their price points and innovation are brilliant. I'll also be wearing lots of Gucci, mostly the shoes—can't get enough of the horsebit!
Her Go-To Fragrance
Le Labo Santal 33 Fragrance, $240
"I love unisex fragrances, and no outfit is complete without a spritz of Le Labo Santal 33. Even when I can't smell it on myself, people come up to me and ask what it is. It's just so appealing."
Her Everyday Jewelry
LeiVanKash Feather Gem Ear Cuff, $445
"I'm not one for statement accessories, but I like single earrings and chunky rings. I'll be wearing a feather-and-pearl earring and an amazing feather ear cuff from LeiVanKash, plus my single silver earring from Annelise Michelson. She's a young Parisian jewelry designer loved by Rihanna and Leandra Medine alike. She has amazing potential."
Accessories She's Loving
Charlotte Olympia Feline Purse, $765
"I'm all about a small cross-body bag and fun, wearable heels. This LFW I'll be wearing Malone Souliers Margot mules and a Charlotte Olympia Feline purse."
