It is easy enough to look out your window and see what the girls in your neighborhood are wearing, but what about girls all around the world? Not so easy. Happily, we are devoting today’s edition of Street Chic to exploring what girls worldwide—from Stockholm to Paris to New York—are wearing this summer. So, whether you are heading to one of these cities and you want some style tips from the locals, or you want to give your closet a dose of global style, we suggest you read on for all the need-to-know details!
Parisian women are known for their innately chic sense of style, which is just one of the reasons we are turning to the lovely lady above for inspiration. The other reasons? Firstly, we love how she has created an all-black ensemble that is anything but basic. By picking pieces with detail or texture—for instance, her studded heels and pleated skirt—she has ensured her ensemble will catch the eye. In addition, we love how easily she will be able to transition this outfit from summer through to fall. If you, too, love this chic look, we suggest picking up ASOS’s Bomber Jacket ($94.81) and pairing it with a black tee and Twenty8Twelve’s Savino Skirt ($139.99). Then, complete your look by slipping into Balmain’s Studded Sandals ($465).
What can we say? The Swedes know a thing or two about style! We love the way the second lovely lady above has created an ensemble that works for so many occasions: a shopping trip, a cocktail party, or a fashion industry event. Why is this look so versatile? By picking pieces with simple yet flattering silhouettes, she has created a look that easily transitions from event to event with just a few key accessory changes. Ready to try this look? Start by picking up Madewell’s Silk Bookmark Blouse ($110) and Acne’s Pacific Leather Mini Skirt ($405). Then, simply throw LA Made’s Zoe Leather Jacket ($325) over your shoulders and finish off by picking up a pair of Raffaele Settembre’s Platform Sandals ($145).
Strange though it may seem, creating an outfit that is casual and chic can be tricky, but if you take notes from the lovely lady, you will be fine. How did she do it? First, she chose a pair of simple shorts, which give the outfit a casual twist. Then, she has added pieces with interesting details like a spotted shirt that ties at the waist and a pair of wraparound sandals. These details help bring the outfit to life and make it stand out. If you are inspired to create a similar ensemble, start by picking up T-Bags Los Angeles’ Knotted Top ($149) and pairing it with T by Alexander Wang’s Ponte Jersey Shorts ($43.75) and Prada’s Lace Up Sandals ($396).
