Here a few of my favorite looks and tips so you can conquer street style this Summer and Fall.
“Sweat-skirt” – This is absolutely the most comfortable skirt I have ever worn. I call it my “sweat-shirt” because it’s close to a sweatshirt material and has an athletic feel. It is a prime example of Athleisure and is perfect to dress up or down (I personally love pairing it with a crop top). And to top things off, it was only $10 at H&M!!!
Platform Sneakers- For a while, I was searching for the perfect pair of dressy sneakers and I came across these Steve Madden platform sneakers and had to buy them in two colors. These shoes are very comfortable even with the tall platform. I also love that I gain a few inches with these shoes, without feeling like I’m wearing heels. (I am only 5’4 after all). Click here to find these sneakers.
Graphic Tees- A good graphic tee is my weakness. They’re perfect for a casual lazy day or you can wear them out and just throw on some booties to dress up the outfit. My secret to finding the perfect graphic tee is to search in the Men’s sections in stores. Don’t be afraid! I would highly recommend searching for graphic tees in the men’s forever 21 section, which is where I find the majority of my tees.
Bomber Jackets- Bomber Jackets are very versatile and are the perfect quick addition to any street wear outfit. Every time I travel on a plane, I make sure to bring a bomber jacket with me because not only are they super comfortable they also make the perfect pillow. I recently purchased a short sleeve bomber jacket that I am in love with! It was only $16 at Nordstrom Rack.
Body Suit- Body suits are staple pieces that everyone should have in their closet. I highly recommend having a black and white simple body suit. Pair bodysuits with skirts, shorts, or even jeans to achieve a flawless “tucked in” look. For bodysuits, I would look for them at fast fashion stores such as H&M, Zara, and Forever 21.
Slip on Vans- Vans are a wardrobe must have! Even though these shoes may seem “so middle school”, you’re really never too old to have a pair of vans. I personally love these shoes because they are perfect for when you’re in a rush and need a pair of shoes to slip on.
Black Baseball Hat- I have never been one to wear hats but after I purchased this black leather hat, I have quickly become a major fan. This item is also one of my “go to airport items”. If you’re not in the mood to wear makeup or fix your hair, throw on your black baseball cap to instantly add to your outfit.
