EURO TRASH - The London Edition



Welcome to another edition of EURO TRASH, where I take random photos (usually of backsides because I'm not sneaky enough to take one from the front, and asking for permission takes to long) and throw them together in  a menagerie of FUN. This week we'll take a look at the local fashion in LONDON. For women, their style can be summed up in one word:

SHEER NYLONS.

Yes people - nylons were everywhere. Both skintone and black - and paired with anything you could possibly imagine. I never wear 'hose', so I was surprised to see they were so popular here.



Interesting mix. Especially with the white shoes...

This young girl was probably 9 or 10. I think patterned sheer stockings are too sexy for young girls (even when paired with something as casual as cut off denim shorts). What do you think?

The mustard yellow color was very popular in London

Whoa - hot mess.
Do you know what this reminds me of?? Click here for the memory

See the sheer stockings? I don't know... I don 't think it looks right. What do you think? Would you wear this? 

I loved her outfit. Dressy yet comfortable. Nice Prada bag too!

Uggh, more sheer stockings.

Love this - she looked great.

Are you  noticing the trend with light colored shoes too??

If she wants to wear shorts this shorts, she should have opaque tights on. The sheer is not flattering.

The navy hose works here. It looks nice with the layers - this I could do.

I am loving the purple tights. Not necessarily paired with this outfit, but I think they will be fun to wear this fall.


This is not a posting of 'bad fashion'. This is really the style and clothes I was seeing everywhere I went. To be honest, I was disappointed in the women's fashion in London. HOWEVER.....the men were very stylish.  

Come back on MONDAY where I'll do a special feature of EURO TRASH - The Men's Edition.

we wear tights all the time because its never really warm enough for bare legs plus british women tend to suffer from the ol' corned beef look ew :P

So weird! I can't believe how popular the sheer hosiery is across the pond.

I never thought about patterned sheer stocking being too sexy for little girls, but I think I agree with you. I wore patterned TIGHTS when I was little, but they were white with little pink hearts, not long stemmed black roses or whatever is on hers.

I seriously only wear it if I absolutely have to (i.e. funeral, work dress code, etc.)...which is why in all my interview outfits I am NOT wearing them. I figure I can get away with it wearing a longer pencil skirt and because it's 100 degrees out.

Black tights and white shoes. No, no, no.

In a couple of weeks they'll all be wearing thick thick tights. Love the purple ones though.

I think sheer is their summer look and the winter look is opaques. The poor things dont get much of a summer

I love most stockings, but I tend to go for opaque colours, although I'm not averse to the occasional sheer patterned pair... never just plain sheer though

we had to wear hose for our sorority meetings, so awful. i like black hose and the variety we have today, but that didn't come into style until my last quarter of school so I didn't get to take advantage of it.
