Observed: More London Style Essentials

Another day in London for me and another day spent surreptitiously checking out other women (to see what they're wearing, of course - you know you do it too) on the tube and in the streets.

Overall, the vibe here is just so much more low-maintenance than New York. In addition to the trends I noted in yesterday's post - printed and patterned tights, coatigans, flat boots, etc. - I've also noticed a plethora of leather jackets (on guys and girls alike), denim minis (and we're talking VERY mini in most cases), great wool coats (it's very chilly!) and inexplicably, little white sneakers, a la the classic Keds.

I must say, I can get down with almost everything...but the Keds are a conundrum. What do you think?
