If there is a style that can be pulled off by one and all equally, it definitely has to be the street style. No wonder street style fashion has become so relevant again, considering it emerged in the 1990s and with all the things of the 90s making a comeback for the better!
Street style looks can be your best friend if you’re someone who puts the condition of comfort first, and why shouldn’t you? Let’s look at 10 killer street style looks to put on this summer with your limited pandemic wardrobe. (sobs internally)
Here’s some “socially distanced” street style to get us all feeling inspired. Check out some of our favorite looks and some new ideas for dressing with a mask.
Solid mask + Ruffled Blouse + Pants
Masks have not only become protective gear. Still, they have also become a fashion element and while there are a thousand and one designs to choose from, what never fails to impress is a solid pastel colored mask, paired with your ruffled top/blouse and with a chic pair of pants to give the bossy chic look and win the street style.
I Hear Monochromatic
Now, monochromatic isn’t just black, grey, and white. Try some beige or caramel to get the game going. There is something so cool and striking about a monochrome look, especially with fun and bold color choices like baby blue, sage green, or even a neon yellow.
Pick your main piece and try building around that. Remember not to keep all the pieces of the exact same shade. Try to play around with various shades to add more dimension to the look.
Bright Suit for the Bold
When it comes to fashion, isn’t it all about breaking the boundaries? Pastel suits have made such an impact that they have dared us to go one step ahead. Sometimes, unexpected combos just work wonders.
I am speaking about pairing paisley masks with solid bright suits here. Pair your bright suit with a subtle paisley mask that doesn’t clash with your look and get that killer look.
Bubblegum Pink is In
Speaking of bright colors, the pioneer of trendsetters this year is bubblegum pink. Being the most photogenic color this year, it is getting us convinced that it would rule the street style scene.
Be it a dress, a suit, or heels, this can’t-be-missed hue is creating its mark and how! No wonder why the color is drumming up the most excitement among the fashionistas.
Relax in Trousers
Basics! Basics! Basics! If I haven’t said it enough, I am saying it once again.
No matter how many fashion statements lap up the spotlight, the sweet spot (cool basics) of fashion sets shines forever and eternally. An ultra-loose and relaxed pair of pants in beige or khaki color reminds us that our grandpas were probably fashion icons too. Pair it off with a basic black or any other tight tee and be the chic you’re meant to be!
PS: A staple rule to looking chic? Elevated basics!
Floral, but Messy
What other boundaries can fashion break? I guess all. Why do I think so? Because messy and ugly florals can be beautiful too. Straight out of the 80s, this new “ugly” has become the trend that everyone has been embracing of late. So here is another subversion of mainstream ideas of what is considered pretty, the classic fashion move!
Missing out on shoe trends on a fashion blog would be a big mistake. You didn’t think we skipped it, did you? Strappy sandals are getting their upgrade this season with more asymmetric straps and more defined edges, with lots of space for toe-ring details that give a new meaning to the word complicated. Your feet fashion is on the list of street fashion. Check some of the trendiest sandals here.
To add some more risk elements, we can’t help but talk about at least one “risky” trend right now. Aptly portraying less is more, creative cutouts are taking center stage. Be it a dress side cutout or an asymmetrical neckline cutout, and these fashion elements are stunning both online and in real life. Make it a part of your street style story and be the fashion queen of your gang.
By now, it can be understood that fashion has no direction, and that’s the beauty of it. No one single track to move ahead on (or even go back). With the 90s trend only growing and refusing to die out, the reverse layering trend is here to stay and for the right reasons. Fashion is never mainstream; fashion is pulling off what society views as absurd and weird, right?
Bags and Accessories!
Well, fashion is not just what you wear. It also is what you carry. Moon bags and Baguette bags have made an entrance with full swing directly from the 90s. Judging from the Spring/Summer 2021 street style look, ruched, quilted, and mini-moon bags found their way into the “It” girls’ wardrobes.
By this time, I am wondering if we time-traveled back to the 90s?!
Switching up your style or even just experimenting with a new outfit can be a daunting task, but that is what fashion stands for, especially street style. Try local consignment stores for vintage or even designer pieces. Pro tip: If you have a difficult time in traditional thrift stores, consider looking at online sources. The most important reminder that we can set for you is to make thrift stores your best friend. They are chic, all about street style, and affordable. Now, who would say ‘no’ to affordable fashion!
