Over the past few years, street style blogs have become increasingly popular, so much so that some of the fabulous photographers behind them have managed to make a living out of it. On top of that, a lucky few have been able to travel the world, photographing every day people in cities everywhere.
This month, the Facehunter has been traipsing across the southern hemisphere, including a stop in my home country of Australia, reminding us of the beautiful weather down there. Although it is hard to imagine wearing a floral dress with bare legs right now, we were reminded of the fact that down under, another season is taking place. Consequently, this month’s edition of Street Chic heralds the start of a more versatile monthly selection – fashion for any and every season, from regular fashionistas around the world.
With that, we present to you November’s Street Chic, with no shortage of gorgeous girls to take your fashion inspiration from, wherever you are.
CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT:
#1. First stop, Chicago, known for its cold winters. This girl has thrown together a look that combines vintage inspiration with current trends, with her Victorian blouse contrasting perfectly with the faux fur vest. You can recreate this look by picking up Natasha’s Victorian Lace Blouse ($148.50, reduced from $495) and adding BB Dakota’s Faux Fur Rachel Vest ($60). Adding a pair of Jeffrey Campbell’s Chloe-inspired Northern Lights Boots ($198) in brown will add a rough element to your look while a pair of Topshop’s Blue Acid Skinny Jeans ($80) will complete the look.
#2. If the last few months are any indication, the boyfriend trend is picking up steam and by the end of the year, we’re all going to be stealing from our boyfriend’s closet. This girl is way ahead of the game with a look that is perfect for spring or fall. Make this look your own by pairing BDG’s Zip Back Ponte Mini Skirt ($38) with a pair of Paz Flat Mocs ($66.45) by Harajuku Lovers. If you can’t steal the perfect shirt from your boyfriend, try this Woven Button Down Shirt ($14.80) in olive. For the finishing touch, add a Cotton Spandex Jersey Headband ($4) from American Apparel.
#3. We couldn’t help but take notice when we spotted this gorgeous Aussie on Facehunter posing in the Melbourne sunshine. We love her grungy denim shirt and floral dress mix, especially when toughened up with a pair of lace-up boots. The overall effect is part Chloe Sevigny, part 90s grunge. Steal her style by pairing this Floral Circle Dress ($48) by byCORPUS in grey floral with Topshop’s Western Denim Shirt ($60). Add a pair of these Restricted Scout Lace Up Platform Boots ($54.95) and throw Steve Madden’s Weekend Warrior Hobo ($78.95) over your shoulder.
#4. As with our last edition of Street Chic, we love a girl after our own heart and a classic all-black outfit is the easy way in. Pinch this look by wearing Charlotte Ronson’s Leather Shorts ($193) with a pair of Jeffrey Campbell’s Tick Wedge Booties ($200). Throw this Aqua Tux Jacket ($98) over a slouchy black sweater and then add a pair of D&G’s Oval Sunglasses ($160) in black for the finishing touch.
#5. As the northern hemisphere moves into winter, nothing looks cozier than a chunky cowl knit scarf, especially when paired with a babydoll dress, as this girl has done. Ready to try this look out? This Silk-Trim Babydoll Dress ($85) from Victoria’s Secret is ideal paired with this Cowl Neck Tube Scarf ($22.95) from New York & Company. The look isn’t complete without a pair of AE’s Swiss Dot Tights ($12.50), Steve Madden’s Lace-Up Oxfords ($79) and Lucky Brand’s Foldover Flap Vertical Crossbody Bag ($178).
#6. For two years now, body chains have been making their rounds on the streets and this girl shows us how to work the look, pairing it with a simple black outfit to make the chain the focus of the look. Try a similar style by layering a black tee with Forever21’s Grainy Faux Leather Short ($17.80) and Topshop’s Knitted Shaggy Cardigan ($135). Then, add Victorian Hippie’s Body Chain ($253) and you’re good to go.
