StreetWISE

This week’s post is all about how to create & style the perfect streetwear inspired outfit that your wardrobe may just be missing….! I have long been a fan of streetwear dressing,I just wasn’t always sure how to master the trend whilst staying true to my personal style. However with a few careful selections and a denim jacket (aka; my new wardrobe staple), I will guide you through how to create the perfect street inspired look that suits your personality.

Firstly, decide on what pieces you want to invest in and don’t overlook pre-existing items in your wardrobe that can become part of the look. This season denim jackets make a return so if your going to purchase just one piece from this look, I would definitely recommend the jacket, (available from dotti).There is no wrong or right way to wear a denim jacket, it can be teamed, styled and swapped with so many different looks that you won’t even realise how important it is to your wardrobe until you purchase one.

Brands such as Sportsgirl, Forevernew & Live all offer a great selection of new season denim jackets, and are worth checking out if you’re in need of a new piece. Be careful when selecting the shade and wash of denim, as it should compliment your overall complexion and fit in easily with the other items in your wardrobe.I favoured a slightly darker denim jacket, as it suits my overall wardrobe better, however there are some great light wash options too.

When choosing a graphic print tee, consider a cropped style, as this way it adds extra edge to your look and maintain’s that true street wear identity. This particular print tee is by Stussy (available at Live), I love the contrast of the grey and pink which gives the outfit an element of interest. There really is no wrong print tee to team with your outfit, it’s just a matter of choosing one that suit’s the colours of your outfit and that can be worn with other items you own. Personally, I am a big fan of print tees & therefor own more that I care to admit…..

To complete your street inspired look, team a pair of high-waisted black tapered pants with your outfit. My reason for choosing this light weight pant is that they are casual enough not to be confused with a formal black pant and project a strong street wear vibe.This particular pair I am wearing is from the brand Lulu & Rose (available at David Jones), they are incredibly comfortable with an elasticised waist and drawcord, plus feature a side zip at the ankles, for an extra touch of chic. It may take some time to find the right black pants for this particular look, but don’t despair, as once you find them, they will be your’s forever! As you can see with this look, accessories don’t play a major part this time as the impact of the print tee and denim combination is enough all on it’s own. If you feel you need to add some extra pieces to your look then introduce some bracelets and rings, which always make for a nice subtle addition.
