As an English born fashionista myself, I find there's something rather special about British heritage brands. Think Dr Martens, Burberry and Barbour; each encapsulates the "oh so British" spirit and portrays the eclectic British style in their own, unique way. This outfit, which I wore to work last Tuesday, features a pair of simple, black Dr Martens, (a heavily punk inspired British brand), and a tartan pinafore dress by Mod Dolly, which was made right here in London!
I've added a slight preppy twist to this ensemble with the sporty striped-sleeve blouse, but when I think about the contents of my wardrobe, it's clear that my style is actually very influenced by British designers and icons... I mean, who doesn't love Alexa Chung's endless array of cute collars and pinafores!? Call me biased as I'm a born and bred Brit, but to me, British style is edgy, eclectic, playful and chic and it will always inspire me! What do you think of the stereotypical British look?
