Must-Haves:

  1. Dark skinny jeans. Brits pair practically everything with super-tight black or navy skinny jeans. They like to keep their outfits simple yet refined. Try pairing dark skinny jeans with oxfords and a collared shirt to get a particularly British look.
  2. Blazers. It seems Kate Moss is always wearing a blazer paired with skinnies. Paired with heels, a blazer instantly takes a British girl's outfit from day to night.
  3. Scarves! Brits (and pretty much everyone in the UK) are scarf-lovers. They instantly add an element of personality to the black-on-black London look. Make the scarf the center piece of your outfit and keep the rest dark and simple.
  4. Leather. Leather bags, boots, jackets, and belts perfectly compliment the minimalist fashion of the Brits. Kate Moss is often seen wearing all of these articles, and she is a big fan of black motorcycle jackets.
  5. Sailor-esque striped shirts. Striped tees look perfect under a dark blazer or paired with a body-con skirt and leggings. Try pairing stripes with red and navy-- Brits are often seem wearing this color combo.
  6. Oxfords. British girls pair their oxfords with practically everything: skinny jeans, dresses, skirts, and even shorts. They instantly make you look more British!
  7. Black Liquid Eyeliner. The Brits keep their makeup really simple. They pair a fresh face with liquid eyeliner to make their eyes pop. They want the attention to remain on their classic style, not on their makeup.
