How To Get The London Look

London is one of the four fashion capitals of the world alongside Milan, Paris, and New York. However, Global Language Monitor actually deemed the city to be the cream of the crop in 2011 and 2012. New York had previously had this title, but thanks to the Olympics and the rise of Kate Middleton, fashion has grown in London once more.

But whilst all four fashion capitals may have style in common, their looks are very different from one and other. For instance, American fashion is very sportswear orientated and if you are a fan of fashion week then you will note that New York Fashion Week showcases the most laid back looks out of the lot. So, how do you get the London look? Let’s take a look at some key pieces...

No Brits wardrobe is complete without an injection of leather. This encompasses everything from leather bags to boots to jackets. It is well worth investing in a quality leather jacket. This is something that will never go out of fashion and will definitely be your best fashion friend for many years to come. You can get your jacket from somewhere such as London Boutiques to be assured of quality.

Aside from leather another must have is a pair of skinny jeans. These have become a fashion staple for every British girl. A lot of the time the London look revolves around keeping it simple and finishing off with a high fashion edge. A pair of skinny jeans provides you with the perfect platform to do so and build the high fashion edge on top of it. And the great thing about skinny jeans is that they go with anything so you can create an array of different looks. 
Another garment your wardrobe will not be complete without is a blazer. A blazer provides you with the perfect way to turning your day outfit into a night time look. You can pair your blazer with your skinny jeans and team with a pair of sky scrapper heels to emulate a glamorous yet sophisticated style.

And last but not least, your must have accessories in London is a scarf. And that’s not merely because it is cold. Patterned silk scarves provide an easy way of turning a plain t-shirt or shirt into an exciting and vibrant ensemble.

So there you have it; the perfect garments to create the London look. To start off your London style wardrobe get yourself a pair of skinny jeans, a blazer, a leather garment and a scarf and you are good to go!
