So today interns Adriana and Natalie collaborated for a piece highlighting trends on the London scene. By scouring hot fashion sites GlamCanyon, Style Slicker, and Hoy Photo Blog, they came up with some great examples.
Thanks, interns, for kicking off one of the Fashion Bomb’s first international posts!
Hey FB’ers!
Adriana here to give you a super quick rundown of some of London’s most popular fashion trends!
The First: Ladylike looks influenced by the styles of the 1940s:

…this look is characterized by pencil skirts, bows, Betty Grable-esque shorts, peep-toe shoes, and clutches. Natalie confirms, “This summer, sophisticated with sass seems to be the rule.” Alright!
Second Trend: world fashion and ethnic prints:
…Natalie says, “To experiment with shapes we go for a more Asian look with sari patterns and pop on belts to add some structure.” Chunky jewelry and flat leather sandals also complement the look.
Trend # 3: Two-toned hair, neon colors, throwback shades, and funky earrings:
…this look is a combination of the styles of rapper MIA and singer Kelis who enjoys tremendous UK popularity.
Lastly, a look at London fashion would be incomplete without mentioning one of England’s grandest traditions: women’s hats.
…The annual Ladies Day at the Royal Ascot races (one of England’s most touted social events) is also a showcase for some of Europe’s hottest millinery designers, including Philip Treacy, VV Rouleaux, and Cherry Chau.
That does it for my quick rundown! Many special thanks to my fellow intern Natalie for her valuable input and assistance!

Looks cool! Hey you London readers: Did Adriana and Natalie get it right?
Let me know!
