I Went Street Style–Spotting in London, and These 16 Outfits Wowed Me

·3-min read

After spending the first few months of 2021 in a nationwide lockdown, house-bound with very little reason to dress up, I'd forgive you for thinking you never wanted to see a pair of leggings again. And if so, you're not alone.

As we slowly emerge from our collective hibernation and restrictions begin to ease across the country, there seems to be a renewed sense of enthusiasm that comes with getting dressed. Whether it be popping out for a quick coffee with a friend or venturing to your local park, Brits are finding reasons to dress up.

Proving exactly this sentiment, last month, photographer Michaela Efford and I ventured to East London's Broadway Market (a hot spot for fashion lovers, if you don't already know that) in search of some stylish individuals to photograph. On our way, we serendipitously came across familiar influencers, models-off-duty, fashion designers and other creatives, all of whom were strolling through their local shopping strip with style to boot.

From vintage leather jackets to spring-ready floral dresses and Converse high-tops by the dozen, keep scrolling to see what women are really wearing in London right now.
