London street style isn’t a new phenomenon-the pavements of our capital city have long been dotted with photographers capturing the fashion zeitgeist, from i-D magazine’s era-defining straight-ups in the 1980s through to documentary snaps of Carnaby Street’s ’60s mods and rockers. You’ll even be able to dig up a Victorian-style snap here and there-even if the focus was probably on the automobiles and industry backdrop, we won’t pass up any chance to see a bustle in action.
Today, you might be likely to find less of the extremely diverse underground tribes that this cultural hub has always been famed for, but there are still style factions present (and many that we draw great inspiration from). London’s a place where you can wear your wackiest outfit to breakfast and no one will bat an eyelid. However, it’s also a place where you can be ultra-chic and businesslike one day and trend-driven the next. Your style can be whatever it wants to be at any given time. And it’s true- Brits really do give good outfit inspiration 24/7. Keep reading to see great outfit ideas from the sidewalks-as well as a few guest appearances from our very own team.
