So you want to look like a London fashionista? Follow these street style trends and you’ll stand out for all the right reasons.
Obviously, you’d be hard pressed to find any self respecting London fashion editor, stylist or model that doesn’t own a pair of trainers. If you’re tempted to try out this trend, it’s best to start simple and work your way up to the bigger, bolder and more colourful trainers. Try investing in a black or white pair as they’re bound to work with most of your wardrobe.
Pastels and White
As Australia cools down, London is heating up. After a long winter, Londoners have been shunning their unofficial black uniforms and dressing in white with a dash of pastels. Although Australia might be getting colder, this doesn’t mean your outfit needs to reflect the dreary weather. Set your positive intentions for the day by wearing an all white ensemble. Just don’t forget to carry an emergency umbrella!
You only have to look around at the abundance of vintage stores in Shoreditch, Camden and Notting Hill to know that the vintage trend has well and truly set up a camp in London. This trend is all about placement. Adding a pop of vintage print to your outfit can give it a fun, quirky edge. Vintage pieces have inbuilt character that can only be acquired over many years of TLC.
Be warned, choose your pieces wisely as dressing head to toe in vintage could give the impression that you just stepped out of an op shop.
Londoners can run and hide, but they can’t escape their grungy roots. Fortunately, you no longer need to be a punk to wear ripped denim. Pair ripped jeans or denim cut-offs with blazers and tailored shirts. Combining classic styles with ripped denim gives any outfit an extra edge.
