We don’t know if you noticed this, but you can, like, see what’s going on around the world from your desk by looking at blogs and other online publications. Take Vice, for example – they’ve compiled a trend report on the fashion and lifestyles of the youth persons of various cities with all the insight and spit you’d expect from the publication. On London girls, they say:
Ecstasy and ketamine are really big again because London coke is so bad and expensive. This means girls are starting to wear white oversize Katherine Hamnett shirts that say “Love” in big bold black print, accessorised with eight-hole Dr. Martens and leggings. You can mix this with a black printed hoodie as well. Dungarees, short shorts, baby-doll dresses, oversize bags, and tailored pants “north of the ankle” are also coming in thick and fast. Other big looks include the Horrors-influenced neo-goth vibe that makes girls dress like Wednesday Addams and Lily Allen’s vintage “chav” look, which consists of Nike Air Max 90s teamed with nice coats.
