Street Style: a Manchester girl in London with beautiful ombre hair

Sometimes along my commute, someone catches my eye. Someone I would love to capture on camera, and this woman was one of them. Initially it was her lovely ombre hair that caught my eyes but she was nicely dressed too. We had a quick chat and I learnt that her name is Charlene, and she is originally from Manchester but works in London. To my surprise, she told me that she did not actually like the way her hair looked. I just like how her hair starts from brown and gradually blends into blonde, and then finishes off in aqua green near the tips. Beautiful!

    I love her hair but mostly the way she wore a pencil skirt with deck shoes! First time I see that and might definitely follow it! xx

    Love everything about this! Her hair is amazing and she’s managed to dress down a sheer blouse and pencil skirt. Will be digging my sheer blouse out- I would never think to wear it during the day.


    Manchester is such a fashion forward city and Charlene you are a wonderful ambassador! We love how this chic outfit has become effortlessly cool with boat shoes. Great style indeed!
