Fashion update: London’s Highstreet Mall

High street fashion is fun, trendy and inexpensive. I believe that you don’t have to prove a point by being decked up in high-end designer wear from head to toe. There is always an element of creativity and personal style when you mix and match.

So what if you are wearing a Prada dress with Ted Baker shoes or a Monisha Jaisingh dress with Alexander McQueen shoes, high street fashion can look great if you hit the perfect combination. It is more about stepping out with confidence than scoring with brand names.

London shopping

A day in Westfield

In a city like London, where it can suddenly rain even when the sun has been out all day, making plans to go shopping for high street fashion, say on Oxford Street or Kensington High, may collapse in a matter of minutes. Westfield London shopping centre is a solution to both freezing temperatures and unpredictable London rain. A 15-minute drive from Oxford Street, it boasts three floors of shopping for almost everything.

I was first introduced to the brand Lipsy at Top Shop, when they reinvented their image from being a midrange to a trendy, upmarket brand associated with super model Kate Moss. At Westfield, Lipsy has its own store that stocks great cocktail dresses for casual to dressy occasions. These well cut ensembles cost between 100 to 400 pounds.

London shopping

All Saints is another store I like to spend time in. The clothes are a little more laid-back and not so tight on the body. Very boho chic. Lot of leather and linen if you are in a mood for that sort of fashion. The flagship store for Ugg boots is at this mall. They set the trend for wool-lined winter boots, and have now become a huge brand. In this particular store, you can get a range of evening shoes besides these typical winter boots. Even though price ranges from 100 to 300 pounds, they are worth it, because they can last a lifetime. Marks Spencer is present on almost every street in London, but the good thing about shopping at the branch here is that the store holds your purchases until you finish your day at the mall.

Hall of Fraser has put together a good selection of clothes and accessories. From brands like Miss Selfridge and Ted Baker, you can choose clothes for casual occasions, for the beach, or even a black tie event. The shoe selection is also attractive. I once picked up a gold python high Caravela pair to die for!

London shopping

Uniqlo is a great store to pick up sweat shirts, pullovers and coats in a variety of colours and styles. Value for money is guaranteed here. The mall does have some luxury brands like Louis Vuitton and Gucci, but I would rather buy that on Bond Street or Sloane Street when the weather is good.

More than shopping

The food court too is worth a visit, and is not the typical fast food that you find in other places. Tossed offers great salads and there is Yo Sushi if you are in a mood to tuck into Japanese. If you want to combine shopping with a movie, the mall has a multiplex theatre. One of my visits coincided with the premiere of Prince of Persia, and it was a treat to see Hollywood stars walk the red carpet when I was least expecting it.

Even if you don’t shop much, the iced cold coffee served at Caffe Concerto is reason enough to visit Westfield London.

Street style – Callum Coulton

Callum Coulton, 16, who lives in Preston and is a fashion student at Preston’s College, loves all fashion items that are pre-loved. He tells Karishma Patel about his outfit and fashion style.

“Much of my style inspiration is derived from fashion magazines and websites such as Another Man and Tumblr, but my other inspirations include music and TV shows.

“I love the style of clothing from the TV show ‘My Mad Fat Diary’. I think this is probably because it has been set in the 90s. One of the boys in the show is called Fin and his style is everything I would want. He once wore a denim jacket on the show – but I had it and wore it first!

“I think the music that inspires me most with my style would have to be by Childish Gambino and also Jay Z, I’d love to be a stylist for the rapper one day. That would be my dream.

“I don’t have a set style and I like to go from dressing retro using bright colours to very conservative and mundane ‘grandad chic’ clothing.

“I think my style likes to change depending on my mood and I am always switching it up and trying to experiment with new styles.

“My favourite outfit to wear is probably when I wear a full outfit consisting of only black clothes. It may seem boring but I feel it is a classic look.”

Jacket: Urban Outfitters – £45

“I’ve had a lot of people tell me that this jacket reminds them of the 90s TV show Fresh Prince of Bel Air. When I bought the bomber jacket, I wasn’t aware of this but now I think about it, I think I can agree with them. I love the 90s fashion style, especially hip hop culture from this era and the clothing that has been inspired by it.

“This jacket was bought from one of my favourite shops, Urban Outfitters. I bought it from the vintage section as I love vintage 
clothing.”

Hooded Jacket: HM – £20

“This hoody is so great for keeping me warm, I use it to layer underneath jackets and on top of other garments. I prefer to layer my clothes as I feel that they add another dimension to my outfit.”

Jumper: Red Cross charity shop – £1

“This jumper is 
individual because of the colours and also because of its roll neck. I find that rooting through charity shops is always worth it in the end as you can find a real gem among all the unwanted clothes.

“I once found some red Reebok trainers for £4.50 when one of my friends had just bought the same pair from the high-street for £70 full price.

It just shows that shopping at charity shops and really hunting for some bargains pays off.”

Jeans: HM – £20

“Although these jeans are pretty simple, they are a staple piece that I cannot live without. As well as being versatile and being able to pair them up with nearly any clothing combination, they are also very comfortable and were very reasonably priced.”

Trainers: Foot Asylum – £150

“What made me want to buy these trainers is the fact that they are black and suede. I love black accessories because they can be paired up with anything.

“You could definitely call me a ‘sneakerhead’, I’m almost always wearing trainers and it’s not just because I like the style of them, but also the fact that they are so comfy.”

Silver chain : Present from Callum’s mother

“I always wear this piece of jewellery. I think it holds sentimental value as it was a present from my mother and when I wear it I feel like I have a piece of her with me.”

Street Style No. 3: Danielle Leventhal

Megan Magray | Student Life

Name: Danielle Leventhal
Year: Sophomore
Majors: Art and Art History
Hometown: Westchester, NY

As cliched as it is, fashion functions as a means of expression. Research suggests that dressing well—or at least, wearing something that you think looks good—increases your confidence and academic performance. So whether you wake up walking on sunshine and radiating glitter and rainbows or you roll out of bed with abstract mascara art smeared across your face, taking time to feel your best pays off. Today, Danielle is dressed to celebrate Easter and the (relatively) sweltering temperatures.

Megan Magray: How do you feel that art and fashion intersect in your personal life?
Danielle Leventhal: Hm…I definitely get dressed in the morning depending on my mood. So people can definitely tell when I’m happy or excited about something…today was really nice out and Easter so I’m wearing a bright dress whereas tomorrow is Monday morning and I’ll probably be wearing black leggings.

MM: How would you describe your style?
DL: I like simple, bright colors, really love polka dots…and I’m not wearing any right now but I usually wear really big chunky jewelry and rings.

MM: Where do you usually shop?
DL: Urban Outfitters, and I love Francesca’s because of their accessories. This [sweater] is Forever 21.

MM: Who’s your style icon, if you have one?
DL: Elle Fanning.

MM: Aw. If you couldn’t live without one piece of clothing or one type of clothing what would it be?
DL:
My rings. I’m not wearing any right now…should I say something else then?

MM: Sure—so besides your rings?
DL: Shoes. I think if anything, I’d rather spend money on shoes and accessories and just wear really plain clothes because people notice [accessories] more.

By piecing together basic, bright items with accessories, Danielle essentially embodies happiness. She walks the line between art and aesthetics, and her mood is not only reflected in but also improved by her spring attire.

Vote! Which Celeb Had the Best Weekend Street Style?


Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Kim Kardashian, Ashley Tisdale, Eva Longoria, Miranda Kerr (FameFlynet)Kim Kardashian channeled her inner Easter bunny in a pale pink jumpsuit this holiday weekend. A matching pastel pout made for an extra sweet spring look. Ashley Tisdale and Eva Longoria followed suit in their own airy dresses. Tisdale chose a tie-dye maxi with a petal leather topper while Longoria showed off her glowing tan in an LWD and gold sandals. Can’t you just feel the Hollywood sunshine?

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Miranda Kerr each gave us a dose of their off-duty supermodel style. The former rocked a studded Saint Laurent jacket with her signature fedora for jet-setting to LA and the latter transitioned into spring wearing a duster cardigan and torn blue jeans.

High-Voltage Valencia: Fashion for a night out

Trends and techies come and go, but the Mission’s Valencia Street has a well-earned reputation for vibrant fashion and nightlife. What does one wear for a night out in one of the city’s hottest neighborhoods? The look should evoke the eclectic, electric nature of the street itself, and its riotous mix of dim dives, taquerias, hipster enclaves and retro-minded shops. Modern geometric and floral prints surface on cool leggings and dresses, topped with vintage vests and metallic jackets; jewelry runs the high-low gamut, and footwear gets right to the point, adding a touch of quirk, polish or color to designer dresses for dancing queens.
