London Fashion Week SS15 is nearly upon us, so as the curtain falls on New York Fashion Week, the stylish among you need to be prepared for the mad dashes between shows, the constant achy feet and looking good on two hours sleep!

Luckily, we’re here to help! You will have seen our NYFW essentials list last week, and now it’s time to shift the focus to the fashion capital.

Here’s our LFW style essentials to make sure you stay fashionable and fabulous this season!

1. Statement iphone case: It used to be your bag which got people talking, but now technology has well and truly taken over. Let your phone do the talking this season with a slogan case to stand out from the crowd.

2. Colourful Trainers: Last season was all about the flat shoe, with just a hint of trainer, and this season it has fully taken over. You’re not anyone unless your sporting Nike Roshe’s or Adidas Originals @ LFW this year. Take note.

3. A Blanket Cape: The weather can be changeable, so the last thing you want is an oversized coat- however fashionable- making you look like a sweaty mess. Opt for the autumn cover up choice this season, a blanket, as seen on celebs and models alike.

4. A Watch: Sounds glaringly obvious, but a watch isn’t just a fashion accessory, it actually tells you the time as well! When your phone inevitably dies, this little beauty will make sure you don’t arrive anything more than fashionably late.

5. Wet wipes & antibacterial gel: Do you have any idea how dirty London is?! Exactly, these two items will be your savior each and every day as you hop between shows.

We’re enjoying something of an Indian Summer right now, which if you’re anything like us, makes you think longingly about donning that bikini again and sipping the odd cocktail (or 20) by the pool!

Well, how about making those daydreams a reality and embarking on your secret escape this autumn?

There are massive pros to going away at this time of year; there are no kids doing water bombs every few minutes, you can bag a real bargain if you know where to go, plus you still get the sun without having to get up at dawn to snag a sunbed. Result!

Here’s our top autumn getaways available to book right now. The question is, are you more of a sunbed addict or cultural magnet when it comes to travel?!

For the Seasoned Sunbed Addict…

Where: Cyprus

Why: Temperatures can still hit 30c on most days and is the perfect place for sun-worshippers to get their daily fix. Head to Cyprus’ southern coast for a taste of the high life; we’re talking luxury hotels, secluded beaches and an uber tranquil setting to really unwind.

Pack: A massive sun hat!

From: A selection of getaways from Secret Escapes, prices start at £490 for 7 nights.
