When I really look at American style, it is much more classic and much less trend-focused than British style is. British fashion has always been noted for its “fearlessness” and are famed for their individual sense of style. The style here is much more casual and comfort-focused. We, American girls just seem to wear simple pieces and make it interesting with the addition of accessories. Something big for Americans is denim, whether it be in pants or jackets.In Britain, the festival look is popular year round which is bed-head hair and vintage-style pieces, which I j'adore. What I also love of the British is that they mix prints, patterns and styles and pull this off effortlessly.
To pull off American style, make sure you are not swayed by trends. American style has to do with being comfortable in your own style. Keep classic pieces in your wardrobe like blazers, white tees and jeans, so you can mix and match without having the need to buy a certain piece to go with an outfit.
To pull of British style, add edgy pieces to your look. British style has an element of punk and gothic added to it. And also have fun with your wardrobe, pair two loud prints together, add studs or bright tights. Brits are fearless. Also, if you are going to London anytime soon make sure you bring an umbrella and edgy rain boots because it rains alot.
What look matches yours? The edgy British or the casual American style? Now go and enjoy the closing ceremony of the Olympics!
