Here's a little round-up of street style that has caught my eye so far this summer. You'll notice a trend--my favorites tend to come from the UK. The styles showcased on blogs like the Sartorialist and those that cover Milan and Paris (and the fashion show-goers there) tend to be too polished for me. Hel-Looks is always fun and refreshing to look at, but sometimes a bit too wacky and hipster-ironic for my tastes. But ladies and gents in London seem to hit it just right! I'm generalizing, but the Brits really know how to combine classic style with a touch of eccentricity. And they seem to like their vintage! (If anyone knows of any great street style blogs from Glasgow, Edinburgh, Manchester, etc., please let me know.)

I love the sweet, simple nautical-ish style on the first girl, that red lace skirt is amazing, and so is the print on the dress on the far right!

A couple cool coats. The printed/painted (?) velvet one on the right is my favorite. I know it's been very rainy and cool in London, but that photo on the right was supposedly taken in July. I so obviously live in the wrong country.

Wonderful menswear--on gents and a lady! I love all of these looks, but particularly the sharp-dressed fella on the far right. His socks!
