It’s actually quite easy to be a street style star, and pretty affordable too – we show you how
We’ve got good news: dressing like your favourite editors, bloggers and fashion darlings is easier than you think. Get inspired with the latest on-trend and wallet-friendly fashion from DailyFriday.
The stirrup legging is the retro-inspired update on the legging and cements the forever-debated pants option as a firm staple in the 'acceptable-to-wear-in-public' category. Pair with a brightly coloured sweater in an oversized shape for perfect proportion; a heel in the form of a pump or boot couldn’t hurt either.
Body-skimming dresses in shades of skin tones are this season’s answer to complete sexiness: it’s all about being unapologetic about your curves. If you’re hitting the club or channeling Kim Kardashian, a pair of same-tone heels will do the trick. For everyone else, a lace-up ankle boot makes for a flattering and unexpected contrast.
When last did you hear the term ‘pinafore’? We’re welcoming back this form of over-dress with open arms. Wear yours with a blouse or sweater that has some kind of sleeve detail, be it flared cuffs or ballooned elbows, this will take your pinafore from pre-school to boardroom in a flash.
Winter florals? But of course. To avoid looking similar to those curtains at your great aunt’s house, go bright, bold and keep accessories to the minimum.
Take an oversized hoodie worn as a dress or over a mini skirt and add a pair of killer boots for a no-nonsense street-style look.
Pink, or millennial pink, is going nowhere. Keep it close, and a pair of high-waist, two-tone, ripped-hem jeans even closer – they’ll come in handy for next season, too.
The perfect pants suit in your closet is non-negotiable. You can switch up your power look with different blouse types and your investment buy will never get old. We’re pairing ours with an unexpected, sunshine yellow knit for a quirky update on the serious suit.
If you’re as serious about burgundy as we are, then a puffer jacket in an ox-blood shade is a must-cop this winter.
