London Street Style.

As much as I love seeing the latest from the runways of fashion week what I really enjoy are the styles worn on the streets. There’s a heightened state of fashion awareness during fashion month and a bevy of fashionistas hitting the streets of New York, London, Paris and Milan to show off their tasteful and artistic interpretations of style. Many flock to the shows, or not even to the shows just to the general vicinity of where they take place, to try to get noticed.

Here are some of my favorite looks from the streets of this year’s London Fashion Week. I love street styles that are classic and sophisticated, but have something that make them different. I like when a person shows that they are willing to take risks. Even if I wouldn’t necessarily wear the style myself or recommend it to a client,  it’s more of an admiration of someone’s willingness to think and do something outside of the box.

What’s your favorite look?

Unexpected pairings.

In the mid 2000’s, much to many in the fashion world’s surprise, the UGG boot came on the scene and was a huge hit. All of the celebrities were spotted wearing them and the boots, whose name came from the word “ugly”, started flying off shelves and were being worn with everything from sweatpants to dresses and still are!

Ever since style has taken on a real transformation, embracing comfortable shoes in all forms as stylish. Unusual pairings, like combat boots and maxi dresses are considered edgy and cool (hints from my teenage years in the 90s). Women are no longer afraid to wear “comfortable” sandals, heck all the top brands are making their own version of the Birkenstock!

When it comes to shoes, and style in general, unexpected pairings is a huge trend, and it separates the trend-setters from the followers. Here are a few examples.

               Converse with a Suit

                      Birks and Leather

            Nikes and Cocktail Dresses

          Combat Boots and Suitcases

How are you rockin this trend?
