London's weather is notoriously gray and dreary. London's fashion scene, on the other hand, is consistently anything but. While cities like New York and Paris are often filled with all-black-everything outfits and a less-is-more approach to style, London is the place where Fashion Month show-goers look like they genuinely have fun getting dressed in the morning.
And, despite the outrageously colorful and out-of-the-box pieces spotted on the streets, somehow, it rarely comes off as trying too hard. And that's the kind of sartorial cool we aspire to: the kind that pairs a checkered suit with beat-up Converse, a hoodie with super-flares, a dramatic full skirt with a Mets tee, and pulls it off like it was a no-brainer. Click through to get your bi-annual British invasion, and don't be surprised if you find yourself dressing like Alexa Chung for the rest of this week.
