As our first post together we thought it'd be fitting to share the popular winter styles and makeup trends for our region to get a feel for what it's like being in England verses Maryland. Fashion wise, we are fairly similar. Beauty wise, extreme polar opposites. The main trend is big long khaki parkas with faux fur on the hood. I own one and I'm sure half the planet does as well if it's even close to winter like weather.
SHOES: It's typical we wear combat or Doc Marten like boots. As for England, that is not the case. What you'll see everywhere is chunky ankle boots with a good tall sized heel. My eyes go into a blank stare at the thought. I'm 5' 8'' and it would be perfectly acceptable for me to wear heeled boots in England... hmmm. There is also a shoe trend we share. Where we call them trainers, tennis shoes, or sneakers, they call them "webs" and I love it. The look is wearing Nike trainers with a casual chic outfit, typically black jeans and a nice tee.
ACCESSORIES: England girls kick it up with a flexible fur headband that covers the ears for a super warm and fabulous look. Wide purses with small handles that sit on the elbow are also a main go to.
MAKEUP: Where we like to keep a simple clean look with bold lashes and most likely a crisp cat eye with liquid eyeliner. The girls in Liverpool "go to town" as Myah says, with a full blown "dramatic and loud" look. We're talking smokey eyes, eyebrows done to perfection, the whole works. It's even common to have fake tans. Sounds like a fashion show everyday to me!
Be on the lookout for more collaboration posts with this lovely lady.
