Styling Your OOTD Clips Against Iconic European Backdrops

Styling Your OOTD Clips Against Iconic European Backdrops

If you love a good fit-check, you already know that it’s all about style and functionality. It’s your street style, after all. And when it comes to travelling in Europe, the emphasis on style goes way up.

European locals are renowned for their impeccable fashion sense. As a visitor, it's not just about fitting in with the crowd but also harmonising with the locales and the locals.

Here’s your guide to getting the most out of your OOTD while sightseeing all the most iconic locations and in-the-know hotspots.


Eiffel Tower, Paris


Call it cliché if you like but can you even claim to have visited Europe without snapping a selfie at the iconic Eiffel Tower?


If you're planning to make a stop at this historic landmark, channelling French girl style is a classic for a reason. Paris fashion embodies effortless sophistication, combining simple, neutral pieces in a layered ensemble that exudes simply chic vibes.


Styling Tip: Embrace classic Parisian elegance by opting for classic jewellery (like the DENISE Cross Hatch Earrings) and let your outfit speak volumes with timeless silhouettes like the LAURENCE Sleeveless Longline Top and MARQUETTE Linen Skirt, layered with tailored pieces like the ANDREAS Oversized Trench Coat.

Local's Tip: For a taste of authentic Parisian culture, venture off the beaten path to Le Marais. Explore the cobblestone streets and boutique shops, and don't miss the chance to indulge in a leisurely café au lait at Cafe Charlot.


Duomo Di Milano, Italy


Whether you're strolling down Via Montenapoleone or exploring the historic Quadrilatero della Moda, Milan's fashion district, you'll find inspiration at every turn. Embrace Italian elegance with tailored pieces and statement accessories, and don't forget to capture your OOTD against the backdrop of iconic landmarks like the Duomo di Milano or the elegant Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.


Styling Tip: Vogue US describes Milanese style as ‘stylish, delicate, and a little whimsical’ so don't be afraid to mix and match prints. For this reason we love the JOAN Satin Asymmetrical Mini Dress for its playful polka dot print, paired with the CHARMED Satin Bow Heel (after swapping out your favourite sneakers from your day exploring).


Local's Tip: Experience Milan like a true local by exploring the vibrant Navigli district. Wander along the picturesque canals, browse the eclectic shops and artisanal markets, and indulge in aperitivo hour at Rita, one of the first bars in Milano.


Victoria and Albert Museum, London, UK


London's eclectic fashion scene makes it the perfect destination for showcasing your individual style. From the avant-garde boutiques of Shoreditch to the luxury department stores of Knightsbridge, there's something for every fashionista in this vibrant city. Embrace London's diverse street style with mod-inspired dresses (like the PAREESA Contrast Frill Mini Dress), and quirky accessories (like the INFATUATED Drop Flower Earrings) and capture your OOTD against the backdrop of iconic landmarks like Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, or we prefer to stroll through the artistic opulence of the Victoria and Albert Museum.


Styling Tip: Layering is key to mastering London street style. Experiment with oversized coats (like our CHANNING Trench Coat) and statement boots to create a layered look that's both stylish and practical. 

Local's Tip: Escape the hustle and bustle of central London and explore the hidden gems of Camden Market. Discover unique fashion finds, sample international cuisine from street food vendors, and soak up the alternative vibe of this iconic market.


La Sagrada Familia Barcelona, Spain


With its mix of modernist architecture, historic streets, and vibrant beach culture, Barcelona offers the perfect backdrop for showcasing your summer style. Explore the trendy boutiques of the El Born district or soak up the sun on the bustling beaches of Barceloneta, and don't forget to capture your OOTD against the backdrop of iconic landmarks like the Sagrada Familia or the colourful mosaics of Park Güell.

Styling Tip: Embrace the vibrant colours and laid-back vibe of Barcelona with flowy maxi dresses (like the OLIVETTE Strapless Chiffon Maxi Dress), breezy skirts (like the VIVIANA Satin Maxi Skirt), and lightweight fabrics. Accessorise with straw hats, espadrilles, and statement jewellery (like our ENCHANTED Pearl Drop Earrings) for a chic Mediterranean look that's perfect for stylish exploring.


Local's Tip: Beat the crowds and enjoy a peaceful evening stroll along the picturesque Passeig de Gràcia. Marvel at the stunning architecture, browse the upscale boutiques, and unwind with a refreshing glass of sangria at Bankers Bar
