The British fashion scene is known for pushing boundaries so it’s no surprise that some of the best influencers in this industry have chosen the UK as their base. From totally quirky to chic elegance, these fashion bloggers know just what it takes to make an outfit look extra special. These are the people you should be following if you want to stay on top of the latest trends.
