Sticking to the classic jeans and T-shirt combo makes this look perfect for everyday wear, but it’s the little details in this Fashionista’s look that make it special. Great street style really is all in the details!
The first step to achieving great street style is to start with the basics. Pair together staple pieces with interesting details.

Adding an oversize denim jacket in a cool acid wash plays on the denim on denim trend.
Adding a funky bag to your outfit is an easy way to have something both practical and unique. Instead of opting for a boring backpack, throw your books in a fun tote or messenger bag that adds a pop of color to your outfit. This Fashionista picked hers up at Seattle’s Pike Place Market. Scour local markets and boutiques for pieces that are one-of-a-kind.

Fun chokers or layered necklaces are perfect for adding a special touch. Sneakers are an essential part of great street style.
