Street style fashion is more than just a trend; it is here to stay and has taken its place on the runways too. So how do we define street style? Its not about trying to follow the norm but rather creating your individual style. It’s all about getting creative with your favorite garments to create your style that’s uber cool and comfy.
HOW TO PULL OFF STREET STYLE EFFORTLESSLY
The great thing about pulling off street style inspired outfits is that you can hardly go wrong. When we think of the street, we relate it to terms like funky, edgy, colorful, rugged, creative etc so just stick along those lines and create what works for you.
I use a trick to pulling off street style effortlessly which is to pick one plain garment and build around it with some funky items. An easy example would be pairing a plain white tee with some really cool washed out ripped jeans and sneakers.
THE GO-TO STREET STYLE MUST HAVE ITEMS
If you’re on the hunt for new clothes to make your perfect street style #ootd , first check out the list below. These items could be lying in your wardrobe and now is the right time to take them out!
Jeans: If you have old fashioned jeans that are baggy and washed out then simply just rip them to recreate them. Ripped jeans is a must for street style.
Simple Tee’s/Vests: If you have a lot of tees in your wardrobe, then now would be a good time to bring them out again. Take a plain tee and just knot up the bottom to a side, creating a funky look with something really plain.
Jackets: We saying yes to denim jackets, baggy hoodies and crop jackets too.These make great garments for layering.
Lifestyle Sneakers: A pair of sneakers always puts the ‘street’ in street style.
Cap: Adding a cap to your street style #ootd can give you so much more sass to your outfit. It helps simmer it down to a casual vibe but gives edge all at the same time.
I personally love that some of the most incredible fashion is inspired by street. Sometimes inspiration comes from the weirdest places. I hope you enjoyed my blog post this week and ready to rock your street style #ootd. Till next time… Ciao!
