HOW-TO: STREET STYLE

Street style has always been in fashion, although this year is an exception to the rules. Everything is brighter, bolder, more textured and makes a big statement.

Although it can sometimes be difficult to follow these trends if they are not really your style. Many people think street style is for the brave and bold of heart, but I’m going to prove to you that anyone can rock this fashionable look, anywhere and at anytime.

Let’s start with the basics…

THE OVERCOAT…

Every fashionista has one (or three…) of these classic wardrobe essentials.

Style tip: In a neutral hue, (think greys, camel, black…) an overcoat can make just as much a statement as any other bold colour.

Paired with a messy half top-knot and sneakers, this look can be dressed up or down.

THE STATEMENT SHADES…

This season, pair perfect your street style look with a pair of reflective Dior shades for ultimate chic.

Not quite your style? Tortoise shell shades add chic to any outfit, whether you are trying to achieve a street style or classic look.

THE FELT FEDORA

One of my favourite accessories this autumn is the felt fedora. In any shade this style essential adds elegance and edge (I know…) to any outfit, whether it’s jeans and a turtleneck, or a cape and metallic shades.

For more style tips, I recently blogged about how to rock the felt fedora, you can  click here  to find out more…

THE LEATHER JACKET…

Yeah yeah, I know what you’re thinking, the leather jacket has always been on trend, what’s the big deal? but this season the leather jacket got a makeover, with ribbing detail on the shoulders, studs and edgy zips…

And now it’s not only acceptable, but on trend to be seen wearing a edgy leather jacket with feminine prints, flowing fabrics and autumnal patterns…

THE STATEMENT WINTER CAPE…

Over the last couple of autumn/winter seasons, the cape has come in and out of fashion, but this season the cape is here to stay. And it’s been given a revamp. No more camel and grey classical, the cape has gone modern street style with appliqué and broader shoulders.

THE MODERN TURTLENECK…

This investment wardrobe essential is back again, and hasn’t lost any fashion since we last laid eyes on it. This season I’m falling in love with the mauled grey knit…

Don’t be fooled though, this warm and cuddly knit looks very chic paired black heels and a minimalist hairstyle, think low buns (also on trend) and wavy bobs, perfect for a dinner date or girlfriend getaway.

THE OVERALLS…

Forget whatever stereotype you thought went with overalls and embrace this new trend with open arms. Paired with a statement overcoat (mentioned above) or a burgundy turtleneck, this fresh new trend is your new must-have.

Paired with statement sneakers, reflective sunglasses, denim (light or dark) and waves, you’re good to go. No matter the occasion, this investment piece can be worn to a girls catchup, movie date, you name it…

THE SNEAKER…

Ladies, we are in luck! This season’s ‘it shoe’ is a comfortable one. In fact it’s probably one of the most practical footwear designed for women – it’s the sneaker…

Style Tip: Think New Balance 574s, Nike, Adidas, and Vans…

THE OVERSIZED SCARF…

For a toasty day out in the hills or mountains, I’d recommend packing an on trend chunky knit scarf – who said you can’t look chic at the snow?

THE METALLIC PLEAT…

Forget pleats and tulle being only for ballerinas, paired with metallic detailing, a new trend has been formed! Whether you’re a skirt (mini, midi or maxi), pants, dungarees, shorts, or skort kinda girl, there is a metallic wardrobe essential out there for you!

    1. Hi ant_girl, that’s a tough decision…It depends on your style, if you’re a bold and wild dresser (think bold colours and patterns), I’d recommend investing in a studded leather jacket (as seen in my street style post). If you prefer a more classic and timeless style I’d recommend a more relaxed and neutral hue, (think camel, black, brown, or grey), which look very chic paired with sneakers and a plain tee. I hope this answers you question. 🙂
