It may be completely non-British to laugh about anyone else's style choices (we Brits are far too polite for that), but I would say that as a British living in Los Angeles for over 12 years, I picked up some American sartorial customs that I found to be different and funny. I remember I was retreating on my first date of brunch in Santa Monica where everyone seemed to just come out of the gym (reduced sweat, of course). It is very far from the UK, where you will not meet friends for lunch in yoga pants or sports gear if you are not really planning to do sports. (Full disclosure: 12 years ago, I feel like I went to the gym now.)
As we wish to express our adoration for the classic French style here on Who What Wear, this is Brits who take more style risks, emit a better aesthetic, and decide individually on their style choices. Who What Wear UK assistant editor Joy Montgomery describes some of the key features of British style: "Ecentricity should be at the top of the list. As we marvel at New professional polish Yorker & # 39; s LA & # 39; s silenced, we Brits carry a certain seriousness featuring chunky, hand-knitted jumpers, heritage fabrics, and off-beats accessories – we championed the & # 39; ugly & # 39; trends way before they hit the mainstream.Our muscles include Alexa Chung, Vivienne Westwood, and Cara Delevingne – all wonderfully unique in their own ways but also undeniably cool. ”
So what pieces do Americans wear that Brits think are funny? Scroll down below for my personal observation of fashion.
The United States has a strong ku ltura and college spirit, enduring even decades after they graduate. So it & # 39; s not surprising that hoodies and varsity jackets embossed with college logos and sports teams are everywhere. For a British look, replace your varsity jacket with a checkered blazer.
In particular LA, dressing up for the gym (think leggings, yoga pants, and tank tops) for any activity every outside outside the gym is very common. The Brits instead favor skinny jeans – a necessary staple in the wardrobe of any British woman.
I don't think I wore a baseball cap growing up in England, but many of my American girlfriends give them to me regularly. Beanies, newsboy caps, bucket hats, and fedoras are more common on the other side of the pond.
Flip flops are not a shoe that Brits often wear compared to their American friends who live in warmer climates. If we are not going to the beach, then a chic loafer, brogues, or ankle boots are preferred shoes.
Next, we go to the French women. See what American ingredient choices make them laugh .
