We all know by now that the street style is equally fun as the fashion shows during fashion week. If not only for the fun inspiration, but also the looks that are easy to recreate yourself. Even though I think that street style is at its best when weird pieces of statement are styled in a wearable way, I thought I’d pin down some looks that can be done with your wardrobe. Cause let’s face, many of us don’t own unique couture pieces or random clothes that have been given to us from designers. So here we go 5 wearable street style looks! And oh, see the slideshows for more details!
Denim On Denim
Many people believe that denim on denim is pulled of best when done in different shades. I partly agree with that, yes, but I also love denim on denim in almost the exact same shade. As done below. The denim in this look in specific has a funky 1980s vibe to it. This is balanced with the delicate blouse under, as well as the velvet bag. The bag, the shoes and the sunnies ties the details together with the dark color. Note that both the shoes and the bag is in velvet which is a nice complement to the monochrome matching of denim. A trendy, wearable, outfit that works perfect for spring!
Pulling of Print
Folks! If you have a jumpsuit in print, this is how to pull it off. I know it’s easy to choose a one colored bag to neutralize the outfit. But if you want to take the fashion level one step higher, you pick a bag that lifts it higher. In this case it’s done with a three colored bag, where all the colors are reflected in the print. You see the white as well as the blue and burgundy. It’s a great way to make the colors pop even better. Also though: remaining refined in the overall impression by connecting the colors to each other. So don’t be afraid to match your black and white bag to a black and white print. Or even better, a colorful one to a colorful one!
Classic with a twist
This outfit is not only simple, classic and fierce but quite the genius one as well. The focus on black is balanced with pops of white. For instance, the white sunnies, the pockets, the shoes and the bag as well. The length of the dress (right above the knees) in combination with the patent leather and shoes in the same shade, make the legs look loooong. Another twist in the outfit is the hat. Without the hat this look would probably pass as “just a chic outfit”, but the hat is the cherry on top. It keeps the outfit cohesive in terms of black and it underlines the classy feeling. Don’t underestimate the power of a good hat!
Pretty for spring
Now this is a great example of how to pull of colors together. First, the shoes are the centre for this look. They consist of yellow, pink and mint green (see the slideshow). From the shoes, the outfit is built around pink and yellow with a pop of blue. The matching of pink to pink for the top frames the upper body lovely. The yellow gives a warm impression. The pink and yellow are both quite dove, so the pop of blue intensifies the colors in the outfit and removes any risk of the outfit feeling sleepy. If the bag was in the color of mint green, the look would come off as too matchy matchy. Often something you want to avoid. Colors for spring it is!
Monochrome for life
Another monochrome look, because it is that good. The top is tucked into the pants, which adds some silhouette. The long vest frames the outfit and adds some flow. The flow of the pants, the vest and also the wrinkles of the top gives life to the look and movement. Something that’s key in the art of pulling off monochrome. The black bag, shoes and sunnies makes a nice contrast and also underlines the unity in the outfit. The length of the outfit is balanced with the pieces being quite narrow, which keeps the silhouette in place. Folks, if you’re only going to try one new look this spring, may it be monochrome!
