Shop the Wardrobe Essentials of London's It Girls

London, like most major cities, has its own unique style language. Love-worn jeans with a classic trench, a knit dress with Stan Smiths or a leather biker jacket over a tweed suit are typical outfit combos you'll spot strutting past black taxis and red buses. These versatile pieces are wardrobe staples of the nattiest style icons because they look good no matter what trends are en vogue and ooze effortlessness. We've hunted down some easy-chic outfits that are centred on key items that get worn on repeat by street style stars. Scroll down for outfit and shopping inspiration!


The trench epitomises sartorial style perfectly. It's the essential centrepiece to autumn's classic uniform.

On Opshaug: House of Dagmar dress; Saint Laurent Leopard Print Ankle Boots (£372).

Saint Laurent's leopard print ankle boots have been a consistent shoe staple for girls in the capital. Team with a ribbed knit dress and a khaki coat for instant outfit success.

Leather biker jackets don't spend long hanging up in wardrobes within the M25 because they are in constant use. Be it worn over a blouse for work, thrown on at the weekend for a trip to the flower market or with a dress for after-hours fun, it's a dear friend to us all.

On Pernille: J.W.Anderson Leather Cuff Shirt (£441); Vetements Slim Jeans (£745); Gucci Polished Horsebit Heels (£490) available in pink.

As far as Fashion Week crazes go, French label Vetements stole the street style show. Add J.W.Anderson's leather-cuff shirt and Gucci's perfect polished horsebit heels to these cult jeans for 100% outfit perfection.

Many a London It girl has fallen for the cosy and cool Donegal suit. Wear it with trainers to keep the look laid-back.

A cosy jumper dress and a pair of Stan Smiths are the ultimate it-works combo for those days when you just need to kick back. 

On Sewell: Vetements Long-Sleeved Floral Dress (£1015) available in grey; Loewe bag.

This Vetements dress sold out within a week of multiple fashion editors wearing it to the LFW shows. It's still available in two colour ways—grey and black. This French label certainly looks at home on the streets of E1.

The high-lo mix is a street style phenomenon in London; it's all about wearing pared-back staples with statement pieces for 24 hours of fashion functionality. For example, classic jeans and an understated top will offset a luxe leather Loewe bag perfectly.
