Streetstyle Inspiration: 6 Outfits To Try Now

Hello again my lovelies and happy Sunday!

How cool are Sundays. Seriously. Sleeping in, having some serious brunch and chilling at home all day in your pj's - priceless. If you're anything like me, you surely like to sneak in a little blog post too.

If there's one thing I'm grateful to fashion for, it's that it always encourages me to be in the moment. Trends, be it beauty, fashion, or cultural ones always push us to be present, to take notice in what's happening around us. This spring I've challenged myself to start feeling more in the moment and stop worrying about what's ahead. These are some somber times we live in, the least we can do for ourselves and our sanity is to make most of what's happening right now and stop stressing profusely about the future (which is something I've been guilty of).

So what is happening exactly in the fashion world right now? Streetstyle has been the main source of fashion inspiration for quite some time now and it's definitely shaping up the current fashion scene. From Alexander Wang to Gucci to Vetements, the street is the main point of reference when it comes to casual dressing.  This spring's street chic looks are unfussy, heavy on the denim, colorful and - what else -  effortlessly cool.

Here's a roundup of a few of my favorite street outfits to date and how to recreate them:

Spring 2016 Trends How-To: Day-to-Night

Hello my lovely readers!

Long time, no see. How are you enjoying Spring so far? As the weather becomes warmer and warmer we find ourselves daydreaming about summer: long beaches, messy braids, tan skin, watermelon, frozen margueritas, effortless outfits and so on.

This is a very exciting season for me. I've found myself drawn to many of the hot Spring '16 trends and I can tell my wallet is already protesting. What I love about Spring and Summer style is that it's uncomplicated, unfussy, light, ethereal. At least that's my romanticized idea of it. There are so many streetstyle staples around these days: the denim mini skirt, the bomber jacket, the cropped flared jeans, the poplin cut-out shirts etc. But how do you take these items from street to evening chic? That's the challenge I'd like to tackle today.

Of course these aren't the only options, just mere suggestions. The possibilites are endless and they're entirely up to you. As you scroll through this post, you will find that often there are multiple trends combined in an outfit, even though the focus is on only one in each set. I did that so you can see how you can wear all these different trends together. If you have any questions please let me know in the comments section.


CROPPED FLARED JEANS

Cropped flares are basically the biggest jean trend we've seen in a while. They have a lightness to them while the cropped cut ellongates the leg, especially when paired with heels. It's fairly easy to style this streetstyle must during the day but questions arise once the sun has set. It's actually quite simple: find a fabulous metallic top, a pair of long earrings and high heeled mules (another huge trend this season), add a pop of color and you're good to go.
