London Street Style :: Leggings

After spending a week in London, I’ve noticed a reoccurring trend: leggings. Leggings are a practical yet stylish solution to the unpredictable London weather. British women and tourists alike are spotted pairing leggings with dresses, skirts, and even shorts. Leggings are comfortable, easy to wear, and go with any outfit. Here are just a few fashionable ladies wearing leggings that I spotted on the streets of London.

Kim (left) and Zoe (right) take a break from shopping to eat falafels from Falafel King, which sells the best falafels I have ever tasted. Zoe, a local Londoner, shows her friend Kim, an Australian native, the hotspots of London while they both wear stylish dresses, jackets, and of course leggings.

Evelyn and Nina shop the streets of Portobello Market on a Saturday afternoon. Nina shows off her hip leggings, while Evelyn goes without leggings and instead opts for a vintage blue coat to keep her warm.

Even packed on the tube after a long day Yuqiao, a student from London, and Neimantha, a student from Bristol, both look fabulous in their leggings.

Anna, a London local, shops at her favorite vintage shops on Brick Lane
in East London, while wearing leggings and denim shorts.

The best places for Brits to buy their leggings are Topshop and Uniqlo, both of which offer a wide variety for very reasonable prices.

  1. epic pictures, ms. carey!!

  2. Most of these looks are great, especially the first few pictures. I'm not a big fan of the leggings with shorts trend though.

  3. I love leggings - they're so versatile. Think they look great with long printed t-shirts or under short summer dresses.
