Studying abroad is the best decision I have ever made. Between the amazing street style fashions and the yummy food that I am eating, I do not want to go back home. While living here in London and studying international design and merchandising, I have been immersed in the urban fashion of London. Bomber jackets, sneakers and metallic accessories are just a few of the trends that I am obsessing over.
Another huge trend that I have been seeing on the streets of London are sleeveless blazers. This Fashionista rocked her outfit by pairing her sleeveless blazer with a thin, striped tank top and distressed boyfriend jeans. Her black belt, black large cross-body bag and metallic silver choker are the perfect accessories for her look. Sleeveless blazers come in a variety of colors and patterns, which are perfect for styling during any season. The summer London heat makes it impossible to wear heavy blazers but throwing on a sleeveless blazer will create a polished outfit. Another cute way to style a sleeveless blazer would be to add black skinny pants and a blousy sleeveless top for a night out in the city of London or wherever you call home this summer. Accessorize the look with black pumps and a black choker necklace for a complete outfit.
London street style is edgy, grunge, hip and urban. This look fits perfectly in the city and this Fashionista looks like she could be a local. Her sneakers are not only a huge trend currently, but London locals wear sneakers all the time because they walk everywhere in the city. It is important to be comfortable but still stylish while stepping out on the streets.
One of the best parts about being in a new country is embracing the culture and attempting to live like a local. London has been so amazing and I cannot wait to come back and see what the food, fashion and people are like in the future.
