Planning on going to London this summer, are vans appropriate to wear because they are very comfortable or will I stand out ?
Totally the most useful blog about London! Thanks for your videos, they’re kind of a ‘pocket guide’ for me👍🏻

If you are coming to London you will do a lot of walking. It is the best and quickest way to see an area. Wear comfortable shoes and bring two pairs so you can swap. Break them in before you come, blisters will take the edge off your day. Be prepared for rain, having said that in the summer it should be warm and umbrellas are sold everywhere when it looks like rain. The look in the UK is often described as ' smart casual', but we are broad minded her and embrace eccentricity so go for it!

I am Chinese. Everyone can tell I'm a tourist in London. Good thing is I don't need to care so much about pretending to be a local.
Dawg Home (4 months ago)
By rights I'm a Londoner now having lived here so long, so I just wanted to say that your advice over all is pretty good, to the lady who wore heels when out touring and then later her feet were killing her? This is often why I have a small backpack or rucksack as I bring pumps or sneakers with me for such an occasion.

Which videos should I watch before I move to London for 12 months in September?? Your videos are super helpful.
Love and London (5 months ago)

Today, (27th of July 2018), is definitely the best example of your advice. Sweltering heat up to 4pm and then a good burst of rain.

Thanks a lot for your video. Very helpful. I am a girl who prefers to use leggings instead of jeans. Could you let me know whether I can wear leggings plain and leggings printed? Also let me know whether I can bright colored girl casual shirts. Thank you.

Love and London 😊 You are right. But I strongly agree for 'when you are in Rome Be a Roman'. I don't want to be an odd (wo)man out!😀 I am from India🇮🇳 and we love wearing bright colours and I do it while I am in India and accommodate to the foreign country whenever I travel😊. So if you still suggest I welcome it. Thank you.🙂
Love and London (7 months ago)
Hey Navya, at the end of the day, wear what you're most comfortable in and take inspiration from that Pinterest board I linked to if you need.

Hey Jess, talking about shoes because I have trips to Boston, Cape Cod and London this summer so I will be doing a ton of walking. Is that pair of shoes that your husband has really comfortable for lots of walking? I am stuck flying real economy to London this time (not whining, I get first class to Boston at least) so I doubt I will be able to bring more than the pair that I wear on the plane. I need to choose wisely. Thanks!
Love and London (7 months ago)
Aw you'll be fine David. Don't stress too much. Just use what you have.

I was hoping for 'OMG, he says they feel like angels rubbing fluffy clouds on his feet all day!' But fairly comfy is good. Thanks for the help. My wife died a couple years ago and with her went my fashion sense. So I need all the help I can get. lol.

Hi I've been following you on your different social media outlets and really enjoy your youtube videos. I find them really informative and help! I'm heading to London in September (Very excited!). I was wondering what are your thoughts on purses? I would like something fashionable but practical to bring over. I was wondering what are popular purse brands that people use there? I was told not to bring north american brands such as Coach as you'd stand out. Someone had suggested a Longchamp nylon bag, as they're very popular in Europe. Thank you again! Jenna
Love and London (7 months ago)
Hey Jenna, I wouldn't worry about it, just wear something you already have that closes so you can keep your belongings safe.

Hi!! I normally wear Jordan's a lot!! But since I'm only going be there for about 2 weeks, I can manage lol. So from the Pinterest board, I see that they wear a lot of layers, booties, stylish sweaters, etc. I was actually a little surprised by the leather pants, and I have some so do you think wearing leather pants and over-the-knee boots together would be ok?
Love and London (8 months ago)
Hey Paris, these are just light suggestions, at the end of the day, just wear whatever you're most comfortable and happy in.
Sira Mea (8 months ago)
This first time I went to London I wore these lovely converse style shoes with a London pattern, (red buses, telephone boxes, Elizabeth towers, etc, they had a rainproof coating, I thought these are perfect! they were not perfect, they were so flat and thin, so cushioning or support and the seems came away were my foot bent. A lesson learned. Test your shoes, make sure they are comfortable.

I'm bringing Adidas Stan Smiths, all-white just as they wear at Wimbledon, and a pair of brown wholecuts for dressier evenings for my trip in July. I think they'll meet all my needs in London, the British GP, Farnborough Airshow trade days and more. Last year I brought 3 pairs of shoes and too many clothes. I regretted not having enough space for the goodies I wanted to bring home, had to pay to ship them.

Hi! Could you possible talk to us about what time of brands to long for. Clothing wise. I am going to London in November. Not sure what type of jacket to buy. As in the material and if they should long or short.Same for gloves. I am very new to cold weather. I am from Miami Florida, we don’t need winter clothes ! Thanks !!

It's in an area that most tourists won't make it to (the outskirts) but another option is Victoria Tower Gardens, next to the Houses of Parliament. You can see it in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qsSm5QWvNTQ&t=74s

They don't wear sweats out in public? omg that sounds like a very uncomfortable lifestyle
Love and London (11 months ago)
They don't! Ah no I love it though, I always feel put together when I go out and about.
Gabe bust (11 months ago)
Covenrse shoes are the worse to walk around in, they are some of the most uncomfortable shoes.
Evelyn Johnson (4 months ago)
As an American, I find Converse have zero support and aren’t comfortable for all day walking and exploring. Bogs are great because they are stylish and waterproof.
Agnetha Joy Caratao (4 months ago)
I love my pair of converse tbh
Love and London (11 months ago)
For me, they're a good balance of being stylish and also more comfortable than other options.
SvenTviking (11 months ago)
Londoners do wear sneakers/trainers, but we’re a bit more fussy about the style. I’ve noticed that Americans of all ages tend to wear the sort of running shoe that you would actually use in athletics or training as casual wear. And sometimes these are ugly shoes! Brits tend to wear certain stylish sneakers, vintage Adidas, Converse, Reebok classics (the white ones kept virgin white.) Nike hightops, Vans, etc.
Love and London (11 months ago)
Yup! Exactly like I said :)
Maac Desmond (11 months ago)
Actually She explain if you wear like those dresses you can easily blend in to londoner. Its nice thing. don't say wrong about her. i read some comments are not quite good. thanks dear

Ok so when you say sweatshirts do you mean hoodies? Like the ones with a big pocket in the front and a hood with strings?

Hey Martha! Don't worry too much about getting new items. In the end these are just suggestions and you want to be comfortable and just work as best as you can with what you have :)
Seraphina Mathias (1 year ago)
Must you wear heels to go somewhere nice? I cannot stand heels, would I not be allowed somewhere for not wearing them?
Love and London (1 year ago)
No not at all! I was just saying what I usually wear.
Ally B (1 year ago)
Your videos are so helpful, thank you! For a night out in Westminster what is appropriate to wear? Also I've heard Londoners don't wear rain boots around the city, so what do you wear when you don't want to ruin your shoes?
Love and London (1 year ago)
Hey Ally, just follow what I said in the video about what to wear out :) And any shoes that are waterproof will work, I don't wear anything special when it's raining.

Hi Jess! Leggings? In the US we wear them as pants, I choose to cover the honey with long tunics and usually pair with boots or converse. Am I going to look weird?

Heyy! (I'm new and subscriber hehe) I wanted to know what to wear instead of Jeans, I don't like jeans (only for gardener costume) what style of pants should I wear??? (Here I dress and I love to dress Sweatpants 😕) and (Idk how to say in English so if u search for "Calças Pantalonas" on Google u Will see what I mean) I love to wear them too, the "Calças Pantalonas" can u see and tell me if it's good to use in London?? Thankssss 😘 loved ur Vid' btw! 💗
Love and London (1 year ago)
Hey Sarah! Pretty much anything besides gym clothing :)
Trish S. (1 year ago)
Like your channel! Other things: (1) Even young children in Europe wear clothing that's logo-free, quality, covered up separates. (2) I found "local" women throughout Europe wear dresses & skirts daily, much more than U.S. (3) tailoring - people get their clothing tailored frequently in London & EU so that's why clothing looks fitted & good on their bodies, and (4) weight: if I see someone overweight in London or EU, they will almost always be American. Overweight/obese=American. I realize that's not ALL Americans, but most of them, most certainly.
anna verano (1 year ago)
Trish S. that's bs i saw so many over weight people in the uk and they weren't yanks ... the people are no different than americans only the accent is different..
Thomas Shedd (1 year ago)
I just got back from London. Do not listen to Jess about running shoes, bring them! You will walk @ 8 miles a day even using the tube and buses. I only brought leather casual/dress shoes and I was hurting after just four hours on my first day. Luckily the second pair was more comfortable. Wear your running shoes if they are your most comfortable pair. By the way British white collar workers wear dress shoes but the British blue collar workers wear running shoes so you will fit right in.
Love and London (1 year ago)
Well I didn't anticipate or recommend anyone to walk 8 miles a day, I mean if you're going to walk that much then obviously you need to wear something very comfortable 😳
Mikkel Carlstein (1 year ago)
Hey, I don't know if you'll see this comment since this is an older video, but I'll leave this question here just in case. I'm a trans guy who's planning on visiting London in November, and my entire outfit that makes me feel safe with myself and safe in public here in Sweden is pretty basic: Dark jeans, t-shirt, bomber jacket or leather jacket with a jeans vest with patches on top, matched with black or red boots. While it's not the most stylish thing in the world, do you think this is something that'd be acceptable to wear in London? (And I don't know if you're the right person to ask this, but how is London in general towards people in the LGBT+ community? I recently checked the news, and saw that a trans guy like me was attacked in the tube, so that makes me vaguely worried.) Thank you in advance.
Mikkel Carlstein (1 year ago)
Thank you for your help! Hope you have a lovely day as well now
Love and London (1 year ago)
Hey Mika! In the end, you should wear what you feel most comfortable in, so you're sorted. London is an incredibly accepting city so please don't worry, you will be safe and also enjoy yourself :) Hope that helps!

Don't worry, this video is just a guideline, in the end you can wear what you want!
Radhika Somani (1 year ago)
Love and London Of course. But I'm definitely afraid I'll stand out because of the things I'm gonna wear! BTW, have you a vid about what people should wear to Uni in London and surrounding areas? Or do you think this covers it?

Sounds like New York fashion. We NEVER wear pajamas outside and our clothes are mostly fitted :) this probably happens somewhere in middle America and most places for nightlife in NYC do not let in with sneakers 👟 anyways...

This is so funny - sneakers when you're not at the gym, sloppy sweats and t-shirts, oversized clothes.  I agree with your suggestions but when you're out and about, comfy shoes are imperative.  I'm going to look at your Pinterest board now.  Thanks!

As long as you are dressed, just be happy and comfy. There are millions of people in London, noone will remember if you choose to wear comfy clothes and shoes to walk around all day.

i usually try my best to look nice when i go out but i live in seattle and i'm just extra so everything i wear is oversized and often childish looking. i wasn't too worried since i atleast don't wear tennis shoes and sweats but now i'm worried i look like a loud toddler (because im v loud)

Don't worry too much. In the end, just wear what you're most comfortable in. These are just suggestions.

We just spent 10 days in London after watching many of your videos. We didn't pack any tennis shoes and regretted that decision. We walked between 5 and 12 miles every day and saw many people wearing tennis shoes and so wish we had done so. We were so blessed...10 days without a drop of rain...I even came home with a sunburn and peeling face! Fabulous trip!

What America have you lived in? I've never seen  anyone wear sweatshirts and sweatpants unless they were running or jogging at the park and pajamas?  I've never seen  anyone out in public wearing them, maybe  that's a East coast thing but in LA doesn't happen ever

I'm from the East Coast and you see it everywhere. College students wear extra large shirts and nike shorts. You see them wearing it to class or out to eat. Women in their 30s wearing yoga pants everywhere. To each their own!

+blueshirt06 yeah not in the cities (doesn't happen much in NYC either), but it's a bigger thing in suburbs/ for college students.

you say you wear " comfy" converse for walking around London all day... problem is that converse are not comfy. I do appreciate your video though! great tips but I'm still struggling with what footwear will be appropriate
Jenny Thornton (9 months ago)
THANK YOU! LOL I was really like “Converse, comfy?!” I love them but they have absolutely NO support! LOL. And even with insoles, the top part is still uncomfortable. I’m thinking of taking some all black Skechers memory foams. They’re not the coolest, but figure if they’re all black they’ll blend in better? 🤷🏽‍♀️

Research Master If you want to look the part you can wear trainers if you're going to be walking a lot but make sure they're neat trainers not big bulky ones and pair them with fitted jeans rolled up at the ankles. Here are some examples... http://fashiongum.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/What-To-Wear-With-Adidas-Trainers-and-Sneakers-For-Women-Chic-Street-Style-20.jpg https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/67/0e/50/670e500a4a7852555840be56eab21dfa.jpg https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/34/26/e1/3426e1ad4a49546362bbac4cfb34484c.jpg http://asset2.cxnmarksandspencer.com/is/image/mands/aa960373b95763bafd00fc0ecfd2f5ad064f439d?$editorial_295x540$ https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/37/4f/98/374f98cc253b0039da8bca4279f6c57d.jpg https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/1c/91/61/1c916172c020ce737765faa349e22a05.jpg Not this... https://i.warosu.org/data/fa/img/0082/04/1399806206822.jpg http://chicago.barstoolsports.com/files/2013/11/128.jpg

To me they're a good balance of comfort and style :) I promise I will make a blog post with shoe suggestions in the next few weeks! Make sure you're signed up to my newsletter (get the free guide to sign up) and then you'll know when it's live.

Um can I just have you go through my clothes and pack for me?!

Blah, blah, blah...I'm an American going to London in two weeks and I don't care if I "look" like one because I will be one of thousands of other Yanks there as well. If I'm walking around doing touristy things all day I will NEVER choose style over comfort and will wear my walking shoes. It's funny because when foreign tourists come here to visit they stick out as well becsuse of how they're dressed. WHO CARES? It's your hard-earned vacation, not a fashion show, and many of us aren't so shallow as to be worried about looking trendy.

One thing I find interesting about traveling is what people wear on their legs. In many countries you don't see women wearing shorts like you do in America. Of course this is for cultural or religious purposes. But as a tourist from wherever you come from it is important to have some idea of what they wear. Of course London is not as culturally different as America but places like Italy (when I went you had to wear long pants to go into churches) or Japan ( wearing jeans especially distressed jeans are frown upon and low cut tops are unacceptable) are places where you have to keep their customs in mind. It is not about a fashion show or looking trendy but it is about not offending another country's culture! Some people do care especially those from countries not as socially liberal as America. You also don't want to be calling attention the wrong way. Just something to keep in mind.

Jenny D Hi Jenny! Yes, I have my physical issues, but don't Londoners still wear Docs? Doc Marten shoes seem like they would last and would be something you still would see. I, for one, am glad they are still around!
Jenny D (8 months ago)
It’s also so that you aren’t preyed upon as a tourist, pick pocketed, etc. so fitting in is a bit more for that than anything else..

Hey. I'm boring. I don't drink, smoke, party, go to bars, clubs or pubs. I want to see as much of London and its' attractions as possible. I want to wear flip flops. is that ok? how about shorts? I will bring dressier clothes but mostly casual. I'm planning to be there for the Queens birthday celebration this year. do you think it will be worm enough for that? I love your video. very helpful.
Amy Galvin (10 months ago)
Flip flop are terrible for your feet on top of looking sloppy.
mrlozmoore (1 year ago)
most South Africans and Australians will wear flip-flops all year round. 99% of brits don't wear them unless they're on vacation in Spain or wherever. Shorts 24 x 7 -- but outside, later sping and summer is best. how old is our queen anyway ;)
RebeccaSarah (1 year ago)
I would not wear flip flops because 1. You will stand out as American (incase that's something you want to avoid) 2. It is way too cold and 3. In London there are a lot of people, it's a bit of a crush in places and you may get your toes stood on
Love and London (1 year ago)
Hey! In the end, you can wear what you want and what you're comfortable in. Flip flops aren't massively popular here but aren't NOT worn. Shorts are fine but it doesn't always get warm enough for them.
Adam Stephenson (1 year ago)
Jeans and a T-Shirt. KISS principle still applies.
Naomi Bidlack (1 year ago)
How about Legging should you wear or not with nice blouse or shirt?
Love and London (1 year ago)
You could! It's not out of fashion to wear long tops and leggings here.

What would one wear to the theatre in the West End?
Deneen Herron (1 year ago)
I appreciate your response!
munstergirl25 (1 year ago)
As long as it's decent you can go in whatever you like. How others dress will depend on the theatre & show. Musicals tend to be a bit more laid back, but if you go to the Royal Opera House you may spot some full on ball-gowns. You can't go wrong with simple trousers/skirt and a nice Shirt. It's probably not "classic" to go in Jeans and Sneakers, but no one will stop you (or care). Also up in the cheap seats things tend to be a bit more casual than in the stalls. But it's all down to preference. I regularly go in my "smart casual" work clothes bringing my non-stylish backpack because I'm lugging around the empty tupperware from lunch. I'll make a bit more of an effort for opera, etc. as not to stick out too much.
Deneen Herron (1 year ago)
Would you please be more specific? Thanks in advance....
Love and London (1 year ago)
+Deneen Herron people usually dress a bit nicer for the theatre :)

All of my British friends wear graphic tees showing off their favorite tv shows, movies, and comic books. When I was there, some of us even had the same shirt because we're all into the same things. I think Londoners like their graphic tees, honestly.
Jane Howard (1 year ago)
charlileftclues back in the 70s college tees and sweatshirts were so popular that if you wore them in the UK people would come up and offer to buy them right off your back. Same with your Levis, no matter what condition.
charlileftclues (1 year ago)
Oh, okay. Yeah, I agree then. University shirts are just tacky anywhere. I don't even own any apparel from my school. Yuck!
Love and London (1 year ago)
+charlileftclues I meant more like T-shirts with brand names and college names on them. Of course, there are many exceptions to my suggestions.

I wouldn't.

Love your helpful videos! I'm in London in 2 weeks, and had 2 questions for you... I wear leggings with short dresses and tunics a lot(usually all black). Is that stylish there? Also, for seeing an evening play at the Sam Wanamaker playhouse, should my guy and I "dress up"? He typically wears all black too (jean, tee, leather jacket)
Love and London (1 year ago)
Wear what you're comfortable in. It's hard for me to say if that specifically is "stylish", but here's some inspiration: https://uk.pinterest.com/Jess_inLondon/london-street-style/ Most people dress up a bit for the theatre.
Matt Youden (1 year ago)
do guys wear hats in london? I feel rather naked without a hat on, but don't really want to stick out like a sore thumb by wearing one.
Love and London (1 year ago)
Yup! but baseball caps aren't worn anywhere as much as in the US
Remy Azhary Yosef (1 year ago)
I was in London in March. And coming from Singapore (being a hot country) the "sudden" freeze was quite new to me. So my advice is to wear something warm because even though the weather may look all sunny, in actuality, the temperature can go really low.
Love and London (1 year ago)
Great tip Remy!!

Hi, I'm so glad I found you on YouTube. Currently catching up on all your videos. 👍👍 Did you notice you're only moving one arm in this video? I had to check your other videos to see if maybe you had a prosthetic arm or something lol. Anyway, thanks for the tips.
Love and London (1 year ago)
Lol no I didn't notice. Thanks for watching.

Coming late July...do locals ever wear shorts or is that a US thing?
Craig Tilley (1 year ago)
I'm a Londoner and yes we do wear shorts but not like any sport wear shorts (unless you're running the London marathon) usually we like to wear denim or chino shorts.
Love and London (1 year ago)
Yes they do! But it isn't always warm enough for shorts here in the summer.
