A popular fashion photography blog, www.stitsh.co.uk, shows that animal prints, floral, and all shades of tan seem to be very “in” right now! Pick up some of these trends before moving to London. The website of Topshop, a very popular British store for the fashion-forward, has plenty of great pieces at bargain prices. After your relocation to London, the streets of London are the best place for fashion inspiration. One weekend day, perch yourself on one of the walls overlooking Camden Lock and soak in all the style that the ultra-cool shoppers and retailers offer at this diverse and popular market. “Camden Girls” are renowned for their fashion. Check them out on a Sunday, the market’s busiest day, by taking the tube to the Camden Town or Chalk Farm stops.
