If you follow me on Twitter, you probably saw lots of stylishly dressed northern types popping up on my feed last week. Along with a team of bloggers across the country, I’ve been working with Grazia magazine during Street Fashion Week to find the UK’s most stylish city, and last week I hit the streets of my hometown (Leeds) to snap signs of sartorial brilliance. Here are some of my favourite looks:
Loved Amy’s amazing Topshop jacket. She’s inspired me to dig out my Disco Pants and give them another whirl!
Sally’s got serious skillz – she MADE this gorgeous checked poncho with her OWN TWO HANDS. Perfect pairing with the navy Cons sneaks, too.
It was great to see a sleeker look among all the vintage – I loved Esther’s All Saints trousers paired with an ASOS fisherman’s jumper. The perfect way to wear a chunky knit.
Lil’s smile just makes me happy! As does her fab H by Henry Holland floral jumpsuit, teamed with classic Cons. Converse sneakers are big in Leeds – I spotted so many pairs on the pavements! More from Lil here.
Finally, a lesson in double denim – Jordan looks great in this light wash denim jacket and dark wash jeans. Love the lipstick, too!
I loved photographing Leeds’ finest for Grazia and it was great to chat to people about the city (especially the new freshers! Welcome to Leeds!), although I did so much walking I literally could not move my legs the next day. Damn Leeds, Y U SO big?
Anyway, I’ve done my bit – now it’s your turn. To vote for Leeds as the UK’s most stylish city and be in with a chance of winning £50 Warehouse fashion vouchers and TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe styling product sets worth £50, visit the Grazia website and clickity click away. As I write this Leeds is in second place just behind Liverpool – don’t let those Liver Birds beat us Yorkshire Lasses! In the interest of fairness I should let you know you can vote for any of the cities involved, from London to Edinburgh, but come on now… it’s Leeds – right?
Let me know which city you vote for!
