Search #street inspo’ on the gram and the first image your likely to set your eyes on is a denim ensemble with the caption ‘OOTD’ (outfit of the day)
The faithful street style combination of distressed denim teamed with minimalist pieces, never goes out of style. Yet it evolves into something unique with slightly different pieces but sends the same message.
The streets are the place to shine (aside from glam events), the streets dictate the trends we wear, provide us with limitless style ‘inspo’ that essentially make you want to go out and buy a new wardrobe and sure enough stay ahead of the fashion pack.
In this week’s blog post, I am taking a cue from the streets and put together this edgier (than usual) outfit which is perfect to wear in this trans-seasonal season. When recreating an off-duty look, it’s important to nail your basics (do this, and it will earn you major street-cred).
After all street style is all about the basics and the unexpected! The first piece to focus on in this look are the distressed denim shorts. Slightly high-waisted yet just falling on the hip, this pair I am wearing is available from Decjuba.
They offer a frayed finish and feature rips through out on the front of the shorts. High in style and major points for a great cut, these shorts will elevate any outfit. The darker wash make them a great option to wear in the cooler months.
Turn your attention to tops and opt for something slightly more glam (instead of the usual print tees). I wanted something would add a posh/high-end touch to the look, so I opted to team this cropped jacket from (Alice + Olivia) with the shorts (Decjuba).
A wardrobe staple that has seen many seasons come and go, this chic jacket is my go-to option, the bow detail adds a feminine touch. The perfect street look consists of a mix of high-end pieces mixed low-end basics.
When it comes to accessories, don’t let you guard down, keep it strong, edgy and on-trend. Embracing the flat side of things, I opted to team my loafers with this look to make it accessible to wear anywhere.
Loafers are a great stand by shoe in the Autumn season and can be worn many times. Next, team a bag that offers a bit of glam. Finish off your street look with a bold red lip to stand out. Remember with street style it’s all about the small details that make it special.
