This week we headed down to Brick Lane to see how stylish East Londoners really are…
Sarah, Textile Industry, 25
Jacket/The Blitz Top/ The Blitz Dress/River Island Shoes/New Look Sunglasses/ASOS Bag/Vintage
If you have legs like Sarah and Angelina Jolie, it would be an absolute crime to not embrace a cheeky thigh split. The simple yet sexy maxi skirt doesn’t over power the sweet pattern clash going on on-top either.
Cam, Call Center Operative, 22
T-Shirt/Nike Trousers/H&M Snapback/Johnny Cupcakes Shoes/Vans Tattoos/Lost Time Tattoo (Peterborough)
Cool and casual Cam brightens up his simple skater boy image with this brightly printed Nike tee and red Johnny Cupcakes snapback.
Lucia – Trainee Circus Aerialist
Top/H&M Leggings/Vintage Headphones/Urban Ears Shoes/Dr. Martens Sunglasses/Ralph Lauren
Colour pops will get you (and your outfit) everywhere. The fluro headphones, floral leggings and shocking magenta wedges make this otherwise fairly muted outfit come to life.
Daniel, Manager at Joe & The Juice
Jacket/Vintage Tee/Vintage Necklace/Market Rings/Vintage Trousers/Topman Shoes/Darkside Hat/New Era Tattoos/Nick Reid (Skunx Tattoo)
Forget everything we about Lucia (sorry) but who needs colour when you can work monochrome like this? This is all about the shape and structure; long angular torso, skinny wee legs and big clunkin creepers.
Ylenia, Student, 27
Tights/Primark Shorts/Levis Sunglasses/Dior Shoes/Market Top/H&M Bag/Handmade in Italy
You know that saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it?” Well, this is pretty much applicable to denim cutoffs when putting together an outfit. We’d defy you to find a wardrobe in Britain without a beat up pair or 5. But as old reliable things go, they work for a reason (and with pretty much ANYTHNG). Denim cutoffs; we love you.
