Street Style for the Summertime in the City

To pound the pavement in the early summer months, a pair of ripped boyfriend jeans, a light off-the-shoulder top, and trendy block-heeled booties are a go-to combination. They offer the perfect balance between rugged and feminine and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion, creating the ultimate summertime street style look.

The Top

This A.N.A. off-the-shoulder find is super affordable, on-trend, and the bell sleeves add just a bit of pizzazz. Recently, I’ve noticed so many crisp white tops for summer with unique details such as statement sleeves or interesting embroidery and had to jump on the bandwagon. This top hits all of the marks, especially because of the contrasting navy blue detailing, too!

The Jeans

Boyfriend jeans with large rips, like this pair, are my favorite casual choice for summertime street style, especially on chilly nights. Worn low on the hips and cuffed at the ankles, boyfriend jeans are effortlessly chic and a perfect departure from classic skinny jeans. Plus, light wash denim is ideal for warmer weather, especially when coupled with fabrics that flow, like linen.

The Shoes

Because I chose to wear this look out during the evening, I opted for suede block-heeled booties in a creamy tan shade. Not only are these shoes super stylish, but they’re so comfortable and perfect for strolling the streets.

The Jewels

My favorite part of this look, though, is the delicate layered jewelry combination that I put together using three dainty necklaces. Picks from a local boutique, Tiffany & Co., and ALV jewels make up my it-girl-inspired jewelry stack. Taking a page from Kendall Jenner’s fashion book, I chose to combine both a choker and longer necklaces in varying shades of silver and gold.
