London, England

Known for its remarkable landmarks such as Big Ben, The London Eye, Westminster Abbey, and Buckingham Palace. But, what truly defines this extraordinary city? Badass Style, exhibited by a combination of feminine and masculine . . tough and edgy all rolled into one!   Just look at British babes Sienna Miller, Kate Moss, and Alexa Chung. Intermixing high and low, rocker and bohemian and, of course, a pinch of classic femininity – creates their quintessential London flair.

Craving to rock this London look yourself?

Check out these street trends – a must for any English Rose:

Cut off jean shorts (jorts as some may call them) are everywhere! Paired a million different ways with black tights and flats to bare legs with boots. Jorts are a staple for any English hipster on-the-go!

Floral print – doesn’t matter what shape it takes: dresses, shirts, scarves. . .

Rompers and jumpsuits spotted on the streets, usually worn with flat oxford style shoes, a cool fedora hat, and a girl’s favorite, fringe bag.

Crop tops paired with skinny jeans are the British equivalent of the American “jeans and tee shirt look.”  The English version is a tad more revealing; but hey, if you’ve got it – flaunt it!

*Try out the latest hair trend in London, a top knot hair bun. This style is simple and oh so chic!
