East London is home to many of London’s most vibrant cultures. This side of the city is a place of ultimate expression through street art, vintage stores, all sorts of ethnic food and of course, countless Fashionistas/os. When the weekend starts, the shops are open and tourists and natives alike are roaming the streets of Brick Lane enjoying the different cultural experiences. I would like to think of myself as a natural city girl among these regular weekend goers, and it was here I found this eye-catching Fashionista with her own love of urban street fashion.
This Fashionista has her own take on the quintessential maxi dress by adding a light cropped sweater to keep warm in the cool UK spring. I love her choice of leather accents in her coat and backpack. It giving her simple black ensemble a slightly more edgy feel. It isn’t hard to see that this Fashionista is passionate about fashion, in addition other forms of artistic expression. From her music-lover headphones and ornate gold jewelry, we can see her passions coming through her own individual style.
As warm weather approaches, a maxi dress is an absolute must-have in the every girl’s closet. Its cool and relaxing and can be paired with any type of jacket or shoes. When summer finally reaches us, switch leather for jean and cuff the sleeves for warm weather comfort. This is an easy transitioning outfit from day to night and still leaves you looking relaxed but elegant in cotton. For those of you constantly on the go, a backpack is always a plus. It is convient and adds a funky addition to any outfit. This London essential is the perfect place to throw your coat, headphones and sunglasses when your ready to meet your friends at night!
