Luxe Basics

Achieve global street-style status with these three hero pieces, Print-Tee check, white ripped jeans check, boyfriend blazer, check! The three essentials will make for a hero combination, earning you some major street-cred in the process.

Just turn your attention to the fashionable cool kids that congregate outside Fashion Week, in all the major cities (London, Paris) and you will fall in love with street-style all over again. There are no rules when it comes to street style other than keeping it as urban/street/edgy as possible. Below is a break-down of this look and how to achieve street style status.

As I mentioned above there are many different types of looks to replicate when it comes to street style, it’s just about creating a look that is going to suit the mood of the current season. With Autumn in its final month I wanted something that was fresh, edgy yet still weather appropriate.


The first piece of this look to start with is a pair of white denim ripped jeans. I love how white again is once again having its moment and what better way to recreate a street style look, than starting with denim. (this pair I am wearing are available from Dotti)

If you’re in need of street inspiration, just head to pinterest or try a Google image search for ‘street’ style outfits and you will be overwhelmed with how much there is. Alternatively head to the gram and perform some hashtag searches.

Next team one of your favourite print tees with this look. I opted for this grey print tee with the words “Paris”, I have always been a huge fan of the grey and white combination. This tee I am wearing is available from Portmans. As this tee I am wearing is slightly longer in length, I like to loosely tuck it into my jeans so that it looks more proportioned.

To make this look season appropriate and not to mention to keep you warm in the cooler months, team a boyfriend blazer over your shoulders for a uniform like finish. Other styles of jackets to team with your look include, leather (biker style), and a chambray denim jacket.

To bring this look together, it’s time to shift your focus to accessories. (which play a huge part) Start by teaming an ankle boot with the look, for a tough street edge.

These boots are suede and feature multiple laces also have a stiletto heel. Next don a large black patent tote for some extra attitude, (this one I am wearing is from Mimco and features rose gold metal details). Finally add your favourite pair of sunglasses and your look is complete.
