A few samples of Shanghai street style.
It's harder to characterize Shanghai style because it's extremely varied. Similarities between Beijing and Shanghai: people wear lots of black; people wear lots of animal
print. Apart from that, there's not too much in common.
Footwear in Bejing tends towards mid-calf boots and platform wedges. In Shanghai you see a lot more ballet flats (which makes sense, considering the climate and the fact that it is a walking city) but also towering heels and booties, which aren't so popular in Beijing.
I saw lots of coloured pants and print pants. Lots of shorts with tights and heels. Lots of pattern mixing.
Sometimes I wasn't able to interpret what I was seeing. I am sure many women were carrying expensive designer bags, but since I don't know anything about bags I couldn't identify them or tell the real ones from the fake.
Sometimes I couldn't tell a thrown together look from an intentional one. The photos I took were all looks that I felt I could make some kind of sense of, if you know what I mean. Also a few window displays. Uniglo closed down briefly during the recent contretemps with the Japanese, but is operational again.
In photo #1, not sure if you can tell but the woman is wearing print pants as well as the Union Jack.
