WHAT TO WEAR: Streeting Your Look

Street fashion is generally associated with youth culture, and is most often seen in major urban centers. So being a Style Guru in an urban center, you should master the art of “streeting” your look. There are many street style groups to choose from, such as Hippies, Teddy Boys, punk fashion, Skinheads, preppy, and many more. I have decided to address the urban style (colorful apparel, large accent jewelry, skinny jeans/pants, jackets, T-shirts).

The number one thing you must remember is to not always go by the rules. Sporting an urban style means you can always stray from the path of wearing what’s expected of you, since new trends can rise or be brought back from the past. Starting off with the apparel, the Fashionisto didn’t choose a colorful apparel, but did replace the colorful aspect with a printed sweater. Printed sweaters or T-shirts with patterns and stamps is the key to mastering this look. As for the pants, he has chosen a colorful pair of trousers but really kept the whole look in earthy colors. The trousers are and should be skinny to complement the apparel.

A traditional good old leather jacket is always fit for the occasion. Keep it shiny, keep it rock and you got yourself an urban look. If you do not own a leather jacket, you can always replace it by wearing a denim jacket. This works like a charm. To complete the look, he has a colorful deep red beanie with a small detail design in the center. You can go for a sport hat with a print on it as well. We also have a chunky watch, a vintage looking pair of glasses and, of course, the socks.

Socks are such an amazing and fun detail to work with. You can spice up every look with this tiny accessory. It doesn’t catch your eye right away; however, you will find yourself appreciating a good pair of printed or patterned socks. For the shoes, I believe that the best option is a pair of sneakers: comfy, urban, fashionable.

I hope you have found this helpful and insightful.
