My Top 5 British Clothing Stores: Outfit Inspiration

Now that both the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games are officially over, Britain (and especially London) is left with a bitter-sweet feeling. Life can slowly go back to normal as the tourists start to mill back home and the Olympic buzz begins to die down. However, the spirit of the games has also created a tremendous feeling of British pride; something I also share. In light of this, I have partnered with Westfield Shopping Centre and am taking part in there East vs West campaign - representing West London

As Westfield is a place where you can completely indulge in any of your fashion desires, I decided to create a look using my top 5 favourite British stores: Zara, Topshop, Ted Baker, Miss Selfridge and Republic - all of which can be found at Westfield!

republic, zara, miss selfridge, ted baker, leather bag, pu blazer, black blazer, fitted flazer, single breasted blazer, lace top, zara womens, zara clothing, zara top, patterned leggings, baroque leggings, miss selfridge leggings, selfridges clothing, topshop, topman, topshop uk, topshop jeels, slingbacks, black slingbacks, crushed velvet heels
Blazer: Republic - Lace top: Zara - Patterned leggings: Miss Selfridge - Leather bag: Ted Baker - Slingback heels: Topshop

This entire outfit was formed around the lace top. I was having trouble forming a look in my mind until I set my eyes upon this piece, and all the other pieces just fell together. As both the top and leggings are incredibly detailed, I felt this needed to be contrasted with plain, block coloured shoes, bag and jacket - which is where the Ted Baker bag, Topshop heels and Republic blazer fitted perfectly.

Do you want to recapture the British spirit of the games? Visit the campaign now and represent your London!
