Studying Fashion in London
Thursday, May 26th, 2016
For the record I want to be clear that I am not ACTUALLY studying fashion in London. I'm a student with aspirations within the field of public relations and advertising who also enjoys trying ot understand the complex workings of sociology. Fashion is just something that helps me display my identity to the world and exercise my creativity!
Needless to say there are some very big differences between fashion in the UK and fashion in the US. And I'm not talking about high fashion, we'll leave that to the professionals, I'm talking about street fashion. What you wear to work. What you wear to class. What you wear whether you're strolling through Hyde Park or Central Park. So, I'm going to give you some of the biggest trends I've noticed during my short time in London so far that you just don't see as often in the United States, or at least the Midwest (I am from Minnesota after all).
White Converse Adidas
Yes I crossed that out on purpose. In the US, white converse are a calling card for being young, fashionable and most importantly part of the middle class (aka me). However, I swear no one wears white converse in this gorgeous city! OK so mabe not everyone, but I think I can count on one hand the number of people I've seen wearing them. In comparison though, if I had a dollar for every person I saw wearing a pair of Adidas trainers (I think that's what they call them here), I would be a millionaire.
Bright Colors Are Cool, But So Are Neutrals
