London Fashion Styles


England's capital city is known for its stylish people. And
while every high end designer has a shop in this fabulous
city, it is more affordable brands like H&M, Topman, and
Uniqlo that appear on the backs of every well dressed man
about. Adding designer bits and expensive bobs give an
outfit a little bit more lux.

Men's.

So what is the London street look for men?

Skinny jeans are a big hit, especially amongst hipsters and
artists and therefore are often seen on legs trotting around
East and North London. Cuffed trousers that show off worked
in loafers and laced-up canvas shoes is also a common look.
Men in London love their petty-coats, their blazers, and
their leather saddle bags. For a dressier look, a slender
suit always does the trick. After all, there's nothing more
appropriate than a sharp look in a sharp city.

And of course, there are accessories.

We mustn't forget those. London men love their scarves, they
love their bright coloured socks sticking out of their
expensive leather shoes. They love their leather, driving
gloves and they love their cufflinks.

Women's.

Like any major cutting-edge fashion city, London has its
very own look. There are the glamorous girls, and then there
are the girls with few things in their wardrobes but 150
ideas of how to wear them. Dark tights with jean shorts over
top, a blazer, and tall boots make a popular look. Dark
tights a short dress, shapeless or shapely, covered with a
big grandfather sweater and a scarf is also quite cool.

2010-11 has seen the comeback of capes, long leather gloves
and 1950s style dresses. On the more casual side, it has
seen the return of Doc Martin's, bomber jean jackets, and
fingerless leather gloves.

A preppy schoolgirl look is also a nice way to bring in the
autumn. With a kilt at the centre of this look, it is
complete with riding boots, tweed, and dark coloured
corduroy blazers with suede elbow pads.

Military colours and styles never seem to go out, nor do
nautical stripes, and of course black. Wearing black
leggings, a long flowy black sweater, and platformed black
lace up shoes, is just as in now as it ever was and ever
will be.

And of course, their accessories.

Most women don't step out of the house without at least one
accessory on, and sometimes many more then that. From hoop
earrings, to chunky bracelets, vintage handbags, and exotic
scarves, accessories most often make the outfit.
