Brit Girl Fashion: The Style Icons That Make Us Proud To Be British

When it comes to style, everyone knows that us Brit girls do it best. We can get down and grungy when we want, and we can get majorly classy when we want. I mean, we're the home of Burberry - grunge and glamour is kind of our jam. We've been home to many style icons over the years, and we're going to celebrate a few of 'em, right here, right now. Give it up for our favourite Brit style icons!

Kate Moss

Move over Elizabeth, we all know the true queen of England is our girl Kate. As the ultimate fashion gal, Kate Moss has guided us through British fashion since she first hit the scene in 1988 at just 14 years old. She's a style icon, and the fact that even today she continues to model is a testament to her power in the fashion industry.

Cara Delevingne

As Kate Moss's protege of sorts, Cara's stunning eyebrows aren't her only standout feature - she's an androgynous dresser, often favouring a sharp tailored suit, but don't be fooled, she knows how to rock a cute dress!

Alexa Chung

The queen of quaint style, Alexa Chung pioneered the peter pan collar. She recently brought out a line at Marks and Spencer, meaning that we can all get a slice of her style. Yaaas! From cute tea dresses to tailored capes and sharp Jackie O style dresses, Alexa knows exactly what we want to see on our Pinterest board!

Fearne Cotton

Fearne is quite the fashion chameleon. Starting her career as something of a grungy fashionista, her fashion trajectory just gets better and better, seeing her rocking old school glamour in recent years. Stick Fearne in any outfit and she'll be able to adapt to it, NBD.

Daisy Lowe

Daisy Lowe definitely knows a thing or two about s-t-y-l-e. Would we even recognise her without her trademark heavy bangs? Maybe not. Daisy's outfits match her hair in that it's obvious she's fond of a vintage grunge look - I mean, what else would you expect from Gavin Rossdale's daughter? Despite always giving us major fringe envy, we love Daisy's signature style.

Jenna Coleman

Aah Jenna Coleman, with her dreamy hair and perfectly symmetrical face. What's not to love? Ms Coleman is fond of a rather classic look, choosing to mix 1950s glamour with floral patterns and dreamy ethereal dresses. We NEED the number of her stylist, stat.

Daisy Ridley

Ms Ridley is relatively new to fashion scene on account of Star Wars being her first major movie. Crazy, right? But so far she's got it nailed. A trait carried on from her character Rey, Daisy doesn't go in for a girly look, but instead favours edgy dresses and tailored suits. A woman after our own heart.

Sienna Miller

In the early 2000s, Sienna Miller was everyone's fashion icon. She basically coined the noughties bohemian look, and we lapped it up with glee. These days she's updated her style, but still sticks to her boho roots with plenty of flowing dresses, flares and floral patterns.

Emilia Clarke

Emilia may be another one who is relatively new to the UK fashion scene, but she has already got it down to a T. Oozing with old school sex appeal reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe, Emilia picks dresses that compliment her curves, bringing a whole heap of sophistication to every red carpet event.
