You are in this big city but don’t feel like you are the part of the society. To gain the true sense of London and make yourself mingle better with the people, I suggest you to dress in the similar way of how they dress. There are various styles that are usually worn by Londoners. It is very convenient for you because you can pick any style that suits you the best. Here are the points that you should take onto your consideration before trying to dress like a Londoner.
The first thing you have to think about is the look you want to choose. It can be sporty, casual, sophisticated, or any other option. You can check the way British celebrities or London bands dress to get the understanding of the different styles of London fashion. You can check it from the magazine or internet. You can copy the style but try to add some touches to make it match your own taste. Remember to put the comfort first above anything else because real Londoners wear the clothes that they are comfortable in.
The weather in London is cool for most days of the year. That is why layered clothing is very popular among Londoners. To do the layer, you may combine your vest and sweater, blouse and jacket, shirt and cardigan, or anything else. You can also add a long scarf made from wool to emphasize the look like a typical Londoner and also remember to wear clothing items that are well-fitted to your body and do not wear loose fitting ones because it will add bulk to your shape, and it is not really attractive to look at.
The colors that are usually chosen by typical Londoners are pastel shades and black. Wear your suit in navy, brown, camel, beige, white, baby blue and other subtle colors. If you want to play it safe, you can dress in basic black. Black is the signature color of Londoner and they usually have a lot of clothes in this color.
The fashion items you better have to dress like a real Londoner because they are usually worn by Londoners casually are a pair of straight leg jeans, polo shirt, knitted sweaters, scarf, leather jackets, and basic tees.
The new fashion is usually formed on the streets. So don’t be afraid to experiment with the style that you see when you are walking around. You can also be the part of it by mixing and matching styles, colors, length and create your own look. This is the best part of living in big cities, you can wear all you want. There is no particular dress code that you should follow.
Don’t wear shorts if you don’t want to go lying on the beach. Don’t wear white sneakers. You only wear them if you want to go to the gym.
Finally, I am just going to say that the point is not about what you are wearing but more to how you are wearing it. The ordinary clothes will make you shine if you wear it with style.
