Harry Potter star Emma Watson may be having a quintessential northeastern American collegiate experience in her first year at Brown University, but she's homesick for British fashion. “I think [British style] has to do with the weather,” Watson told Stylewatch. “We have terrible weather. It’s very gray and drizzly so we need things to cheer us up. And I think that leads to a lot of creativity and color, and? why our designers are so innovative. We have great vintage and we love to mix and match: high street and high fashion, vintage?and I think that really defines it as well.” [Stylewatch]
