This level of outfit nirvana is not unattainable, in fact the answers lie at your fingertips. First step to your own street style … is to look back at that board you’ve been pinning to, this will be a great indicator of your taste. Are you more into minimalist or monochrome? Do you favor a classic feminine look, or do you dig quirky details like watermelon bags and detailed bomber jackets?
Once you discover your style, it’ll be easier to isolate the elements to add to your wardrobe. Details are hugely important for successful street style looks, a way to tackle this in your own style is to invest in quality items that you absolutely love. Let’s say you need a midi skirt, a pretty basic item nowadays, instead of grabbing a cheap from whatever fast fashion store scour vintage stores or online for a quality piece. That way you’ll also probably add something unique to your collection as well as something to last through the seasons
Remember that hair and makeup can also count as an accessory to add more detail to your outfit. Consider a new color to add to your quirky look, or refine your eyebrow and cat eye game to round off that classic style.
Trends can have a negative connotation to them, they are after all what we immediately recognize in vintage photos, positively or not. If you’re hesitant, use your own take on trendy items. Incorporate them however you want, this can be as mild or as outspoken as you feel. Just check up on some street style pics on how to add trends flawlessly.
