Folks! Why not take a pause from the runway fashion and focus on the street style instead? I know many of you, including myself, thinks that it’s equally fun, if not more fun, with the street style fashion. I’ve picked out some chic, inspirational, looks from the past weeks and written a bit about why I enjoy the looks. I’ll surely write more about the street style later, but let’s start with this!
Street Style February 2020
This blue velvet (?) outfit with the patterned blouse is so well-styled. The blue/white print of the blouse ties together the outfit with the blue blazer and pants, the white bag and the white shoes. I also like the mix of materials as the heavy velvet is contrasted with the lightweight blouse. If you have a blazer, cardigan or jacket at home and a patterned top in a matching color, this is a good combination to try!
Little Black Dress
I love the function of the belt here as it creates a favorable silhouette with the LBD. It creates some structure in the outfit which makes it more dynamic. Love how the black boots balances the dress with a more minimalist style. The necklace is also a chic detail as it reconnects with the metallic parts of the belt and the dress. If you own a dress sans definition, add a belt to the waist for some structure!
I love awkward color combinations and this one surely qualifies! The warm brown with the cold blue is an instant contrast, but still works. It’s a bit of a retro touch to it, which is further enhanced with the white clutch and the brown boots. I think brown is also a great match with orange, red, pink and green so don’t be afraid to work your neutrals in a colorful way.
Pop of Orange
But what’s fashion if not a powerful pair of boots? These orange statement boots are an injection of energy. The orange tones in the patterned dress are intensified by the boots. The brown jacket and bag frames the outfit nicely and tones down the statement of the pattern. They also centers the spotlight to the orange boots. I’m not saying you all should invest in a pair of colorful OTK boots, but color in general is such a great way of making a pattern more lively.
One of the best parts of the 1980s fashion, if you ask me, is not the oversized style but the pastel colors! They’re indeed suitable for a spring fashion, but I also like them in a classic winter style. Matching pastels with knitwear and blazer is a cozy, but proper, layered look. I love the purple set and how it’s balanced with the mint blue sweater and bag. The earrings underlines the retro vibe and so does the makeup!
If you own a dress with a white background color and a floral pattern, whatever you do, try it with a red lipstick! A red lip will make the red in the pattern pop and at the same time keep the crispy look of the white intact. I love how the yellow bag is reconnecting the yellow parts of the outfit. What to be inspired by from this outfit is also the hairstyle. See how chic it is to do you hair in a strict bun when there’s a lot happening in the outfit? It brings back the focus to the dress!
