What do London girls really wear? It’s an illusive question without a clear answer. Just as Parisian girls don’t all go around wearing Breton stripes and berets, there really isn’t a definitive London-girl look (although magazines might like us to believe otherwise). If anything, it’s the eclecticism and desire to blaze our own aesthetic that defines the capital’s spirit.
As much as we love Sienna and Alexa, we imagine they aren’t exactly representative of the everygirl who pounds the pavements and nips to work on the tube. With this in mind, we’ve been exploring the realities of the London girl’s wardrobe—from heatwave street style to how Who What Wear UK’s editors are channelling their holiday style back in the big smoke—and this week we’re turning our attention to something close to our hearts: shoes.
From chic leather sliders to cool Converse, we’ve wracked our brains and delved into the wardrobes of our favourite industry insiders to reveal what London girls are really wearing on their manicured toes. Scroll down to get the lowdown and shop our edit of the best styles to match each trend.
