Street style does not refer to a street look (i.e. it does not refer to dog tags or Jordan’s). Street style has instead developed as a label for the urban hipster style seen in cities from Los Angeles to Milan.
Why the name? The style has evolved from looks seen on the streets brought to the masses via blogs and fashion websites. Street Style has adopted key characteristics of “hipsterdom” such as valuing authenticity and individuality. Thus there is no real way to define such a style, except to say that it is clearly cutting-edge and trendy.
So how does one develop a style with no real definition? Similar to being a “hipster”, a self proclaimed unique and authentic style, it has even a style that labels become quite replicable. Hipster has come to refer to thrift store apparel, ironic t-shirts, beanie hats, and skinny jeans. Street Style is a little more ambiguous, but with the right resources a street style look can be created by following the preceding plan. Good luck on your journey to authenticity and coolness.
Step 1: Stay true to yourself. Figure out what type of apparel really connects with you and/or reflects your personality and life style.
Step 2: Follow fashion blogs as to figure out what trends are currently hot. Pick out the trends that you like and would wear.
Step 3: Shop at street style sites for easy access to trending apparel. These online retailers are easy to spot while glazing fashion blogs because bloggers often adorn themselves in their garb. Here are a few suggestions to begin: Romwe.com, Threadsense.com, Karmaloop.com, or lylif.com.
