Trend Alert: Livin' La Vida London

Trend Alert: Livin' La Vida London

As our sisters at FabSugar UK know quite well, London is worlds apart from America. And I'm not just talking about distance. There are some crossovers in fashion, but the main difference in dressing between the UK and US is that the Brits favor a more disheveled, punky look. Vivienne Westwood, of course, spearheaded the entire punk fashion movement back in the day. Those who wish to be livin' la vida London should consider playing with leather, studs, and neon, even if Piccadilly Circus and Kensington High Street don't ring a bell.

I love the dress shown above, but I wouldn't call it "a disheveled, punky look"! I agree that the "London Look" described here is seen more on the younger set, while the professional woman dresses more like you would see in NYC.

i also adore the fashion in london. when i was there a year ago, i was inspired by the girls i would see on the tube. when i got home, i tried to recreate some of the style. didn't look quite as good on me as it did on them. oh well.

Love the choices. I might have to buy that dress since I'm going to London next month!

I see this in a lot of younger girls, as in students, but not so much for the professionals out there ... I think they favor a classier look ala French Connection/Karen Millen.
