Whether we are scrolling through influencers Instagrams or checking out all the fashion week news, you are bound to come across someone that looks effortless in designer gear. Whilst you on the other hand can’t even step out of the house without a toothpaste stain down your top… But with upcoming designers, buyers and bloggers to soon watch out for, we have to learn how to be street style ready in case we get snapped.
Of course, being on trend is key. You won’t be a head turner if you are wearing a trend from 2 years ago.. Despite how many times you love those bobbly high waisted trousers. As NYFW is over, Fashion Month is still continuing and there is time for us to show the streets how well catwalks influence our wardrobes. continues and the streets are just as anticipated as the runways. Do you know which trend to go for? Or are you the ones, like me, that leave everything till the morning of?
Pretty in pink
Pink is a colour we hate to love, but at the moment we don’t mind shouting it from the rooftops. Great for layering with different hues or clashing with a pillar box red. It is time to release the power of pink.
The double d’s
I know I speak on everyone's behalf when i say I am glad double denim is back!! A pair of jeans can be took advantage of, as they are seen as an everyday item. But adding a ripped hem, having some jewels or going brighter than a packet of starbursts, can bring a lot more depth to your look.
Lavender is the grown up version of Lilac, and I have seen it everywhere during fashion month. The pastel tone is great for the ones who want to grunge up a “girly” colour. All of a sudden I am thinking about Palma Violets…
As we all should know, trench coats are a staple piece in our wardrobes. They practically go with everything. Whether you like your classic Burberry caramel colour or want to paint the town red in a colour that screams all things bold. Pair with a versatile favourite; mom jeans.
Sometimes the thought of having to pick and plan an outfit can get us pulling every strand of hair out.. A quick tip? Don’t. Invest in a statement jacket with a bold print on. Chuck over some of your most minimal pieces, and you have yourself an outfit worth street snapping.
Don’t chuck out your ugly shoes
That is right… The pair of shoes you would wear to go on a muddy walk in, or something that your dad brought you who has no style. But the shoes that were once known as “ugly” are now the new faves. They bring an edge to an outfit, that turns your most casual outfit into a statement one.
Bag yourself a bumbag
Some people called them bum bags, others called them fanny bags… But either way, the waist centred bag has been one to make an appearance on all celebrities and fashion influencers. How can you not love a bag that helps you have your hands spare for the extra glass of prosecco at the events?
