Dressing Up Like a True British Woman

british 8Sure, we speak the same language as them but are we also fluent in our fashion patois? If you want to be familiar and fluent with British style-wise, here are some rules you should also swear by.

British women are not into in-your-face accessories but instead opt for subtle vintage pieces. We believe that it has something to do with them, in the early years, have very easy access to amazing markets and that they even got to learn about vintage shopping.

 

british 2Athleisure is not very British.

Some, like a little percentage of their country, wore the athleisure trend and it resulted to them being laughed at. They don’t really wear a tank top and leggings when they go out for a workout class or just for weekend errands but they do wear minimalist sneakers. Maybe you’d see most of the athleisure trend on other countries instead.

 

british 3Invest in quality traditional pieces.

We’re talking about an item or items that is pretty versatile and can be worn for many years to come. They don’t really follow trends. British women mostly go for classic investment pieces.

 

british 4Yes, a trench coat is one of them.

That’s because “everyone in London owns a trench!” Not only that, but it’s just a super cool outerwear. It’s classy and timeless and is a versatile piece that goes with just about anything, even with your pajamas (but don’t wear pajamas outside).

 

british 5Master the art of layering.

British women tend to layer more because of the extremely cold weather. Just layer artfully to create a unique look.

 

british 6Opt for bold and statement-making outerwears.

But British women don’t just go for classic trench coats. Instead, we see them in bright and bold statement coats. We’re most likely to see American women stick to the basic cuts and colors. But if there’s one thing British people are very much into, it’s a really bold outerwear.

 

british 7They don’t mix and match much.

British women are into uniform dressing, while American women mix and match a lot to create a new look. British women have their own style and they stick by it for a long time.
