Home » Pale Denim: Brit Style on a Budget
April 27, 2008 by TBF
Kathryn’s Note: Welcome to our new weekly column written by our friend Natalie about British budget style for less
I’m a big fan of TBF’s blog and really appreciate all the work and thought that goes into running it. With that said, the idea of a British weekly column is disappointing. I’m not knocking British style, I just don’t find it very main stream in the United States. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love seeing what is going on around the globe fashion wise, and a weekly column featuring the trends in different countries would be welcomed. The idea of increased focus on British fashion, with the suggestion that it should be applied here, in the States, just doesn’t seem all that useful. And, any jean that my boyfriend and me can share is a serious “no-go” in my book.
Tessa I hear what you’re saying- but we have a LARGE number of visitors from the UK and Canada who have been beggging us for years to produce content for them as well.
I alsot think it’s good to here what is going on in other places, because these places often influence American style ( trust, the light denim will be big next Spring)
We will be featuring items from Canada as well as Australia in the next few months. If we can find a writer, I would love to have columns on japanese budget style
i’m really looking forward to this new column. i think we can all stand to learn a thing or two from our fashionista friends across the pond.
I disagree. I think London is extremely influential in terms of international fashion. My column is not about taking British fashion and seeing how it can be ‘applied’ in the US at all. It’s about taking a trend (that isn’t always exclusively ‘British’ per se) and seeing how the British high street is translating it. Surely Budget Fashionistas this side of the pond and in the US can be inspired by the British high street. Look at Topshop – here is an example of a British shop that is almost unbeatable in its sensitive responses to what’s going on on the catwalks, and its ability to produce translations that are great value for money. If you are looking for a way to ‘apply’ British fashion to the US, look at the incredible demand for Topshop there, resulting in the store moving to Manhattan.
Thanks, Budget Babe!
