英国的时尚

英伦风在时尚界的影响力不可小觑,但英国人日常是否也西装革履呢? 众所周知,伦敦是时尚之都,时尚对于绝大部分人而言都是“善变”的。但在英国,他们认定的时尚是“经典”。 英国的经典时尚的最好例子,就是一年一度的英国皇家赛马会(Royal Ascot)。赛马会的组委会会制定非常详细和严格的着装规范,这种着装文化发展至今已经成为了这项赛事的一个亮点。 男士的西装需要搭配西装背心与领带,若是穿着两件式西装,则裤长需全长到脚踝,外套要与长裤搭配为同颜色同质料。女士的裙长必须过膝。但这些都不重要,最值得期待的是在赛马会上女士们戴着的各种有趣的帽子或帽饰。这些帽子的设计都非常有趣,甚至有些夸张,特别引人注目。如果有兴趣了解的话,可以搜索一下Royal Ascot英国皇家赛马会,相信你一定会喜欢那些有趣的帽子设计。 而在中国出席正式场合的时候,虽然中国人都会穿上比较隆重的衣服,但是并不会像英国一样制定这种严格的着装规范。所以在中国参加活动的时候,我们总是可以看到每个人穿着带有自己特色的衣服,这也是另一番风景。 男士的西装需要搭配西装背心与领带,若是穿着两件式西装,则裤长需全长到脚踝,外套要与长裤搭配为同颜色同质料。女士的裙长必须过膝。但这些都不重要,最值得期待的是在赛马会上女士们戴着的各种有趣的帽子或帽饰。 英国独有的着装要求文化体现了英国人对于礼仪的重视。不过另一方面,也造成了刻板印象。在大部分中国人的印象中,英国人平时都会穿西装和戴礼帽,非常正式。的确,在正式场合,比如赛马会上,英国人会非常严格地遵守着装。但是,他们平时其实穿的也非常随便。从我自己的角度来看,我觉得英国人最常穿的夏季衣服,就是连帽卫衣了。 众所周知英国经常下雨,但是总是带着雨伞又很不方便,所以许多年轻人就会在下雨的时候选择不带伞,直接穿着卫衣出门。下雨的时候,直接把卫衣的帽子套在头上就可以了。也是因为气候的原因,英国有很多衣服都使用了防水面料,就算下雨,也不怕被淋湿啦。 冬天的英国会刮很大的风,所以风衣也是英国人衣柜里必不可少的时尚单品。而且英国的风衣设计都非常经典,其中最有名的牌子就是被许多中国人所熟知的Burberry了。我的梦想就是有朝一日买一件巴宝莉的风衣。奢侈品品牌的确很经典,但是我毕竟还只是一个学生,很多时候要考虑买更经济实惠的衣服,于是英国的高街品牌(High Street)就成了我的不二之选。 说到高街品牌,第一印象就是价钱实惠,紧跟潮流。虽然用料做工没有奢侈品牌那么好,不过因为价格实惠,以后闲置了也不会觉得很可惜。我最印象深刻的英国高街品牌就是Primark的,商品价格惊人的便宜。大家不要觉得国外的物价很贵,Primark里的很多商品都比中国的还要便宜,一件连衣裙可以低到18英镑(约160元),一件Ť恤甚至可以低到4英镑(约35元)。我每次在Primark的逛街,都会一直惊叹,“天哪,怎么可以便宜?” 因为很便宜的价格就可以买到非常潮流的衣服,所以英国的街头上穿着时尚的潮人也很多。我每次在路上走的时候,都仿佛在看时装秀。如果对时尚有兴趣的朋友,一定要来伦敦感受一下不一样的时尚氛围哦!
