May is finally here, which means it’s time to start looking forward to summer. Of course, while this is obviously very good news, that doesn’t mean you don’t have to do anything to prepare for the arrival of the warmer months, and one of the first things you’ll need to get sorted is your summer wardrobe.
Whether you’re looking for some snazzy swimwear to take to the beach or a whole new look, you’ll find all of the latest trends in London, which has a reputation for being one of the fashion capitals of the world.
An absolute paradise for shopaholics, the city is of course home to the famous Oxford Street, which is Europe’s largest thoroughfare and runs from Tottenham Court Road in the east to Marble Arch in the west – rather convenient if you happen to be staying in the luxurious Montcalm Hotel Marble Arch!
Indeed, you’ll need somewhere comfy and lavish to rest your weary legs after you’ve shopped til you’ve dropped in London, so booking into a stylish establishment like this is the best way to make sure your retail therapy doesn’t end up doing you more harm than good.
Just off Oxford Street itself is the world-famous and uber-trendy Carnaby Street, which became legendary during the so-called Swinging Sixties and is home to some of the most fashionable shops in the capital.
Of course, if you’d rather stay away from the West End you’ll find loads of other great places in the capital to pick up a summer wardrobe, with the two Westfield shopping centres – one of which is located in Stratford while the other is in Shepherd’s Bush – being among the largest in Europe and housing every high-street brand you could think of.
