Within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is the department store Harrods. This store is so fashionable that they enforce a dress code for customers, something that all Londoners seem to follow daily. Typical weekday mornings on an American college campus do not look like fashion shows, but half asleep students wearing their collegiate apparel. In London, academics’ dress as if the streets are a catwalk. Their clothing display personal style and current trends, like Harrods.
This Fashionista was spotted walking to class on Brompton Road, the same road that Harrods is on! Her early morning attire is stylish and perfect for a long day of lectures. Walking to class means that comfortable shoes are a necessity, and her combat boots emulate the best of the ’90s grunge scene. Steve Madden makes these boots in several colors and they can be paired with almost any outfit. A classic T-shirt goes a long way, but a good one like Alexander Wang’s slub tees last forever. No outfit in London is complete without a jacket for the ever changing weather, and a shearling lining adds extra warmth. Although this Fashionista bought her coat from a market, NASTY GAL produces a similar coat. To be safe, always carry an umbrella in London! Fulton is the UK’s largest supplier of umbrellas and the Queen owns several.
