Like many people this summer, I decided to make up for lost time and do some international traveling. I was fortunate to be able to spend a few weeks in Europe, and like any good fashion editor, I was taking style notes from all of the chic people I passed on the streets. While London is typically not the city that comes to mind when you think about summer style, I happened to be there during the recent heat wave, so I got a unique look into which summer ’22 fashion trends are resonating there.
The trends London girls are loving right now make total sense with the city lifestyle and usually pleasant summer temps—with a polished twist of course. Instead of current trends like platform shoes and micro miniskirts that don’t mesh well with a walking city like London, fashion people there are opting for trends that offer both style and practicality. These trends blend seamlessly into their city-girl style while still adding a fun summer vibe. From loose trousers to colorful button-downs, these are the four street style trends taking over London right now.
