Syretta's Style Guide: Street Style

Let's talk Street Style. I define the Street Style movement as the materialization of an eclectic display of juxtapose styles. Street style savants are lauded for their intuitive, inventive knack for executing this movement by replacing runway, designer-driven trends with a more personalized, atypical aesthetic. I love pairing my casual and edgy pieces (think vintage graphic tees & distressed jeans) with frilly, super-femme accoutrements, like dresses over jeans, sneakers with skirts and other unexpected combos.

My street style staples are tattered rocker tees, graphic tees, dramatic ruffles, feathery clutches, palazzo pants, oversized blazers, pattern play, and EXAGGERATED EVERYTHING. Most of my street style favorites are pieces I've collected over time from thrift stores. J.Crew is a great source for graphic tees and Urban Outfitters is my go-to for rocker tees. Layering is an essential element of the street style trend, so I always top my look off with an oversized, lightly-structured blazer, or a long, flowy kimono. Zara and Nordstrom are always great for the latter.

Have fun accessorizing your street style looks with feathered accents, statement sunnies, hints of fur, and unexpected pops of color. Finish the look with embellished shoes, layered necklaces, thin, stacked bangles, and hats.
