There's a hell lot of chavs and gangsta style.... then comes the emos, the hippies, the WANNABE hipsters...... that's pretty much it...

And then there's the boring preppy and trendy people who are a bit everywhere....

Here in London...

not many women are following the new ladylike trend, everyone is wearing gypsy skirts, low-slung belts and slouchy bags...very boho

The men just wear t-shirts and jeans and the teenage boys wear tracksuits and trainers, not to forget the baseball cap...very chav

And the teenage girls, many just wear boho or Juicy really

I however am loving the ladylike trend, and making the most of it...

Here people dress in one of three ways. The most popular way by far is the American Eagle look. AE jeans, AE top, AE fake birkenstocks with a knockoff LV bag. Or if you "have money" you throw some Abercrombie in there. Then there's the Wet Seal girls, who shop exclusively at Wet Seal, and wear the loudest, tackiest, overly trendy, ill-fitting clothes humanly imaginable with vinyl stilettos and a knockoff LV bag. These girls are considered the "stylish" girls. The last type is the wannabe-punk/emo kids who shop a mixture of PacSun and Hot Topic, with a knockoff LV bag.

It's hell.

wow, boho still going strong, especially in this weather? That sounds crazy...I always imagined the boho look to be one more suitable for late spring or summer...with the flowy skirts, thin cardigans, slouchy neck tops and all...doesn't seem practical for up north below freezing weather. Unless one is a devoted fashion victim.

When we will learn ..as a nation.. to dress better. sigh. I get so SO excited when I see cute well-dressed boys. They're so rare now I think I'm going crazy.

Me too *sigh*.... guys all look the same. They're either skaters, straight (shirt and regular pants/jeans but not classy, more often than not it looks cheap) or rappers.

flip-flops +
singlet tops +
skinny jeans = sydney style

(anything on top of that triple combo is an attempt at boho)


if you want to see attempts at trends i guess you go to Bondi or more cosmopolitan areas like Paddington or something. Trouble is, then you see the thought process involved in the clothes combination. Nothing looks thrown together.
