The Return of the Sloane Ranger
Since finding a couple of gems in a local charity shop I've found a new love for Sloane Ranger style. The look may have peaked over two decades ago (and gained negative associations with Hooray Henry's who have more money than sense since then), but the reign of the Sloane Ranger is far from over. Epitomised by the '80s wardrobes of archetypical Sloanes, Diana and Fergie, the ideology continues today with neo-Sloanes like Kate Middleton working a very British upper-class look. They adorn themselves in traditional British lables without appearing too showy - so it's not usually the sort of look to achieve on a budget - but I managed to find a Burberry purse for £3.50 and an Aquascutum blazer for £10!
