London Trend Take Home Bag


I have been dying to tell you guys about the AH-MAZING fashion I saw in London. When I'm there I just want to take pictures of the girls (and guys) on the street-they really have their street fashion DOWN. People there are so free with the way they dress, sticking to their own unique style despite trends which I think is what makes it that "cool" the city is known for. Here are some of the trends I took home with me.

1. "the boyfriend boot"-I don't know what it is about this boot but EVERY girl had them on. They seem so masculine so you have to find the one that suits you ( I have a tiny foot so I wasn't trying to over power it with crazy buckles and studs). These were paired with leggings, tights, knee highs, over-the-knees, skinny jeans, shorts with such ease and confidence. Some girls even wear them unzipped to up the "I don't care" factor.

2. Navajo Cape/Sweater/Anything-We all know I'm already a sucker for Indian Princess themed fashion-this print was everywhere on anything.

3. The Stevie Knicks Hat-London is going through a Stevie Knicks phase, well I think most of fashion is but America hasn't fully embraced it. Dying for one of these--again my "small-ness" has me still looking for the perfect one that doesn't hide my face and in black.

4. Bags with any buckle-Since the Mulberry "Alexa" bags with buckles have become a staple.

5. Over-the-Knee socks-We all know how I felt about these before London now I'm even more CRAZY about them. Such an effortless way to be sexy

6. Cardigan- These updated version of the cardigan is a mix with a blazer. They had them in all prints, beads, embroidery. I see them coming over here in full force in the Spring.

7. Cozy Marbled Shirt-I found these in Topshop they were very T by Alexander Wang-ish so comfy and soft I bought them in 6 different colors and have been living in them.

8. Hats-Hats were huge since its FREEZING, hats with fur and little ears were a favorite.

9. "Snoods" aka Eternity Scarves-These were everywhere in every fabric. My sis's favorite-I got one in pink knit.

10. Capes-Capes were a great alternative and more flattering silhouette when it comes to outerwear. Wish I would have picked one up instead of being so focused on a fur jacket (which by the way I didn't even find THE ONE)

Love love London for the fashion, and appreciation of one's own unique style. America needs to adapt that as well as all of these trends ASAP.
