I think bags are the ultimate accessories that can make our break an outfit. In the same way a  gorgeous Chanel 2.55 can glam up any outfit in an instant, a great back pack can add a little casual vibe. And you even have both hands free for your shopping bags! 

I love the back packs that these two girls are sporting.

Just as I though summer was here, another drizzly day. Which means, another great rainy-day outfit! I'm starting to think that the rain and cold brings out the best in London street fashion.
I mean look at this cute girl! I love her waterproof jacket, and boots. Totally practical for a day like today, and she looks fantastic! Which is a difficult thing to do in a puffer jacket. Also like her glasses and messy bun, and Micheal Kors arm candy certainly adds a bit of glam!

Denim can do no wrong. Being a nineties child, I don't think I will ever shake off the love of all things denim. Remember Britney in her full length denim dress?

I also have a certain weakness for men in a great pair of jeans. So why not double the awesomeness, and wear it head to toe, like these young men.

We call them "gum boots" in Australia. Which is probably why I tend to associate rain boots with getting deep in the mud in mangroves looking for mud crabs, or puddling through flood water. Hey, don't laugh, I'm sure a lot of fellow north Queenslanders will agree with me.

But, meanwhile back in London, it's a major fashion statement. And thanks to these well dressed ladies below, I know why.

 
What is your favorite rainy day cover up? 
There were all sorts of  jackets, coats, parkas and blazers out on display on this cold summer day, but the most popular seemed to be the British mac, or the leather jacket.

The girls below looked so good in each, that I really can't decide.

It was one of those wet, chilly, cloudy days today in London. But do not fret, Londoners now exactly how to deal with this rather depressing weather. Wear NEON!

Really, what better way to brighten up your spirits, and everyone else that sees your clothes? These Ladies were rocking the neon trend on Oxford street this afternoon.

Lemon yellow is one of those colours that remind you of good summer times. Although it’s a difficult colour to pull off, it instantly lifts your whole outfit when done right. Like these stylish girls.

I met this girl while shopping on Kings Road. She was on her way to an interview, looking fantastic. She was so friendly and sweet, you’d be stupid not to employ her.

I adore all white outfits. It has that pristine, clean feel to it.  When worn right, it makes the wearer appear so fresh and elegant at the same time. But unfortunately wearing white (especially bottoms) is unforgivingly high maintenance. You have to watch where you sit, avoid pasta or curry, and run away from small children! Oh, and I haven’t even mentioned the way it magically adds pounds in all the wrong places too.

But despite all negatives, all you have to do, is look at this picture. And you will be digging out your whites too!
