I’m a bit of an anglophile, truth be told. I love the accent, probably like any other American girl, but it’s more than that. After all, we were once a part of their world, that is before we became the rebel country. Anyways, the British do things right. They dress well *ahem Burberry* and they make some incredible music. The point of me saying all of this is that I love the quintessential British trench-coat.
This brings us back to Burberry. Right now, with Christopher Bailey at the helm, the Burberry ship is sailing straight to the top of my favorite designers list. Oh my goodness, I just cannot get enough of their beautiful fashion. For men and women, you just can’t go wrong with Burberry (especially the Prorsum line).
So, without further ado, I will be showing you my photos of the Brit look. This trench-coat was on sale at the Burberry store, and since it is my favorite color I couldn’t really resist. (I was already planning on buying a coat there, anyway.) The point is, I love this coat, and the color combo in these pictures is one of my favorites. So here are a bunch of pictures:
I love that my hair is completely in my face in this one.
Earrings and Black Bracelet: Old Navy
Dress and Tights: H&M
Bangles: Forever 21
Alright, so here it goes: My quintessential Brit playlist just to finish it all off.
(I tried to keep this balanced between old and new, classic and obscure. Enjoy.)
The Cure – Pictures of You
(Robert Smith’s voice is so perfectly recognizable.)
You Me At Six – Jealous Minds Think Alike
Oasis – Wonderwall
(Too classic! I had to put it on here.)
Arctic Monkeys – Suck It And See
(A great example of how British sayings don’t always make sense to Americans. This song is not dirty.)
The Rolling Stones – Paint It Black
Los Campesinos! – The Sea Is A Good Place To Think Of The Future
The Beatles – Eleanor Rigby
Last Shadow Puppets – Separate And Ever Deadly
(If you’re not convinced by the way Miles sings “I didn’t hear,” then you’ll know their British when you hear them sing “butter and crumbs.”)
The Who – Pinball Wizard
The Vaccines – All In White
The Smiths – This Charming Man
(How can you have a British playlist without Morissey? Another completely recognizable voice!)
Bat For Lashes – Daniel
Muse – Escape
(That’s all for now. If you want more Brit music lists, let me know.)
