Do you suck at street?
Ways to up your street (style) cred...
… without splashing out big bucks.
When you scroll through your Insta feed or fashion bible Pinterest, you notice some people just get it. We’re looking at you “street-style-istas".
They make street look so effortlessly cool, while the rest of us are left like, WHA? Scratching our heads wondering how to pull it off. Really tho, the whole point of street style is that the look is so unique it can’t really be repeated - well, not exactly. We’ve tapped into how you can still get serious street cred just by updating stuff you’ve already got in your wardrobe. Essentials prepresent!
Who doesn’t have a bit of denim in their wardrobe already? (See this street style thing is easy!)
If you have big rips in your jeans you can layer up for winter, adding fishnet stockings underneath.
Style it on top with a long-line tee, over-sized knit and longline coat or denim jacket. Bam!
The bomber jacket has been a wardrobe staple that made a big comeback in autumn.
Take some inspo from Hailey Baldwin and slip it over a slip dress (geddit?), staked necklaces and ankle booties to add some sass to your street day.
We’ve all got one. (Or your BF does, so borrow his!) The white shirt is a staple. Always.
Team it with some denim for a fail-safe look, or amp it up with a chic neck tie or scarf, get belted and add some statement accessories.
Or go business at the top, party at the bottom… #workit
Who said you actually had to wear the plaid, flannel or checkered shirt sitting in your cupboard.
Plan your look around overalls with an off-the-shoulder top, then just tie it around your waist. Or wear it over the top all jacket style. Get your feet involved in a pair of too-cool Cons or slip on loafers for a different vibe.
Choose your favourite graphic tee and use it as a base to a complete single-hue look. We’re talking head-to-toe!
For a little extra street cred, throw on a bumbag in a “I’m not even trying” kinda way or grab that over-sized clutch from your bedside and strut gurl.
