Fashion is a constant source of inspiration for many. Yet what is more inspiring than the garments themselves are the people who display entire outfits while walking down the street in the most beautiful and effortless manner. These people are local and international fashion lovers who inspire us to take more fashion risks, like trying a bold pattern or bright color to break away from the ordinary. Cream shades, red dresses and mixed patterns are three of the current street style trends in New York, Paris and Sydney, all of which inspired the following looks.
H&M V-Neck Blouse; NO. 21 Pleated Cotton Culottes; Wet Seal Retro Mirrored Cateye Sunglasses; Jimmy Choo Black and White Striped Elaphe Cross Body Bag; Michael Kors Preston Cutout Leather Sandals.
You can try this trend either in its monochromatic form or by mixing similarly colored pieces such as white, beige or light brown. Complete your look by adding dark colored accessories to balance the lightness of the outfit.
Lele Sadoughi Modern Garden Pinball Howlite and 14K Gold Brass Ring; Gianvito Rossi Plexi Suede and PVC Ankle-Strap Pumps; L.K. Bennett Eugenia Skirted Dress – Salsa Red; Les Petits Joueurs Frida Princess Perspex Clutch; Alexis Bittar Liquid Hinge Collar Bracelet.
Red can seem like intimidating color, but it looks elegant and exudes confidence. If you’re feeling bolder, try pairing a red dress with a red bag or red shoes, as some bold fashion gurus do around the globe.
MSGM pineapple print crop top; Halston Heritage Striped Stretch-Jersey Skirt; Whistles Wide Twist Cuff; Diane von Furstenberg Tonda Chainmail Clutch; Express Rope Lace-Up Runway Sandal.
This is a tricky trend to pull off, but it can be easily done by choosing a colorful print and a less colorful one. It is all about the balance of the two prints, and selecting prints with at least one color in common helps achieve a bit of coherence.
