Sick of street style yet? Cool, neither are we. 

On Friday, many editors, buyers and bloggers were in transit from New York to London to take in a few days of shows across the pond. But in the meantime, quirky, cool British girls already on the ground wasted no time showing off their distinct style on the streets outside presentations by designers like Shrimps, Sass & Bide and the Central Saint Martins MA students. Obviously Alexa Chung was there repping Shrimps in one of the brand's leopard faux fur coats. It was only one of several funky fur sightings, in addition to colorful hair, oversized pants and textured accessories. While statement looks such as these often feel forced at the New York shows, in London it doesn't matter how crazy the outfit — these girls pull them off like true naturals.
