Finally! Spring is here! Wait...really? Okay, yes, we feel that chill, too. But British reserve aside, this sudden drop in temperature and flash sleet attacks have us reaching for the thermals and our warmest woollens. Brr.
And yet, we can still manage to look fabulous, right? To prove it, we took to London’s Oxford Street to snap the women braving the cold in truly impressive style. And boy do they look good.
From a statement shoe to an oversize bag and oh-so-now double denim, we tracked down the women expertly navigating the tricky seasonal changes with sartorial know-how. Inspirational, every last one of them.
