London Vacation Packing List
I’m sure you have heard of the word “Posh” or someone being described as being Posh. What it means is that a person is elegant, stylishly luxurious or upper-class. Well this is the London Look for sure.
Being based in Los Angeles, I can tell you firsthand that in some places in America; people tend to wear baggy or flowing, laid back clothing. This isn’t the case in London at all. Ensembles are worn to be seen as very tailored yet modern.
For instance, you will notice guys wearing tight or fitted jeans more often than not, throughout the streets. Also, the fashionable set tend to indulge in high-end designers since London is one of the biggest fashion capitals in the world.
Furthermore, in London you have to remember to layer your clothes. The weather there is very unpredictable but in most cases will be rainy with very little sun. So then, packing right and pre-planning is a must. Below is a list of What To Wear while you are in London.
What To Wear
- Tailored Jeans/Slacks
- White Button Down Shirt
