Street style: (noun) the elusive look everyone wants but no one knows quite how to pull off. Street style thrives in fashion week events, Pinterest boards, and fashion blogs. It’s the “it girl” look that makes biker boots, shag jackets, and chic button downs alike look original and completely unattainable. But don’t be intimidated, it’s not as hard to execute as you’d think. It just takes a few statement pieces, some confidence and some of what you already have: personal signature style. We all have some weird pieces in the back of our closet we could never get rid of, but never have the juevos to wear. The street style agenda is to pull out the weird stuff, pair it with something bizarre, and walk out the door with your head held high. Pleated print skirt + your favorite sweater + eye catching jewelry + Carrie Bradshaw attitude = insta-worthy street style. It can be nerve wracking, then enjoyable, and then totally addicting. Get creative, get weird, and give it a try!
