With her background as London’s hippest fashion designer and as an editor on British Vogue and the London Evening Standard, Luella Bartley mapped out English style and what it means for girls and woman.
What is the English style which girls around the world try to emulate?
In this book Luella Bartley – crowned Designer of the Year at the British Fashion Awards in 2008 – sets out to capture what it is that makes English girls just that little bit more special.
She investigates the combination of smart and scruffy, classic and street-style, which ensures that English girls are always at the cutting edge of fashion. Then there are the icons like Kate Moss and Dame Vivian Westwood who have a definite place in the style pantheon.
Luella’s Guide to English Style isn’t just a book about fashion and style, but describes the English girl’s approach to life and shows how English girls gets better with age. In the back of the book there’s a shopping guide for that perfect English style shopping.

The book is not overloaded with pictures, but does have funny and witty background stories about everything and anything that has to do with British icons in fashion, fashion and style in general, and the less fashionable ‘no go’ style.
A perfect read on a lazy sunday…
