Instead of doing a Fashion Bloggers in Denim roundup this month, I’m doing the street style images instead. With Fashion Month coming to a close, there’s been an array of jeans and denim pieces being worn by editors, bloggers, and more on the streets. I shared with you the outfits from New York Fashion Week, so this week we’re covering London Fashion Week!
New York is very different to London in the sense that there’s a stark contrast of dressed up and then a more grungy appearance. So as you can see from these photos, a lot of trench coats, leather, mom jeans fits, white denim, wide legs, and even denim chaps were present! All given an edge with the styling of other pieces. With New York there were a lot more denim jackets, skirts, and even dresses, which was almost completely absent in London. Crazy how the different cities change the way people dress isn’t it? Anyway, check out the looks below and stay tuned for Milan!

I like number 5; the white button-front jeans and blue blouse.
I only recently discovered that the name of the leggings called ‘chaps’ is pronounced ‘shaps’. They’re named for the plant chapparal, which they’re meant to protect against, so that figures.
I don’t think I’ve heard of them, the only chaps I know are the leather ones which are for Western wear?
I noticed the model on the right in the first photograph was wearing them. You wrote:

I spent years thinking those things were called chaps as in blokes and I thought I’d share my recent discovery in case you didn’t know. Was it the word ‘leggings’ that confused the matter? I can’t think of anything better to describe them. Overpants? Sheaths? ????
Oh!! Yes it was the word leggings that confused me. I think they are just called over garments. A legging would imply a second skin fabric like a yoga pant, which is why I was confused, ha ha! I actually always thought they were ‘chaps’ with a ‘cha’ sound too, didn’t know it was like shaps! You have taught me something!
