You know that feeling of helplessness that washes over you when you wake up, open your closet, see the endless array of clothes before you, and realize that you don’t have even a spark of inspiration about what to wear? We have all been there. In fact, some of us visit that feeling quite regularly, which is why we love our regular Street Chic story. Not only is it jam-packed with of-the-moment outfit inspiration, but said inspiration comes courtesy of real girls, just like you (and us)! On that note, if you are ready to take style notes from girls all around the globe, let us welcome you to yet another rousing edition of Street Chic! Read on!
1. Fashion is quite often about contrast, and accordingly, we love the way Nicole, who lives in Sydney, Australia, has paired a chunky knit cardigan with summery separates. Not only is the layered look perfect for mild winter weather, but we love the way the cardigan gives a rugged twist to Nicole’s otherwise feminine ensemble. To put together a similar look, pick up Catherine Malandrino’s Crochet-Front Wool-Blend Cardigan ($132.50) and pair it with Topshop’s Cream Crochet Crop Blouse ($76) and Chiffon Midi Skirt ($70). To complete the look, add Pour La Victoire’s Hiro Heels ($250). To check out more of Nicole’s personal style, head to Garry Pepper Vintage.
2. To put it simply, this outfit, by San Francisco-based blogger Laura, is eye-catching! We love the way Laura has played with different colors and silhouettes to come up with a fashion-forward ensemble. By teaming a pair of orange pleated pants with a neon green clutch and a simple white tee, Laura has given her outfit a playful and personal twist that makes her stand out from the crowd without going overboard. Inspired? Pick up Truly Madly Deeply’s Scoopneck Pocket Tee ($24) and pair it with Topshop’s Pleated Wide Leg Trousers ($100), which come in a pretty dusky color. Then, simply add Halston’s 70s Envelope Clutch ($459). To check out more of Laura’s personal style, head to On The Racks.
3. These days, denim cut-off shorts are a wardrobe staple. If you have been looking for a new way to wear your favorite pair, make sure you take inspiration from Erica, who lives in New York. Erica has given her shorts a fresh twist by pairing them with a lightweight cropped sweater instead of a tee. This adds interesting contrast and means the look is wearable in those in-between months. To craft a similarly chic ensemble, pick up Motel’s Jasmin Crop Knit ($88) and pair it with your favorite shorts. Finish by adding Topshop’s Rhinestone Chain Drape Necklace ($60) and Madewell’s Bridgewalk Sandals ($158). To check out more of Erica’s personal style, head to LPFashionPhilosophy.
