Street fashion is at an all time high. Here’s everything you need to know to get street chic in 2019.
Pair high and low end.
One of the best ways to manage the street chic styles today is to artfully combine the highest and lowest ends of the fashion spectrum. Some trends we’ve seen are when both men and women pair proper trousers with some comfy kicks. Another option is to grab a nice leather jacket with a pair of retro jeans. Or, even a track suit with a designer bag.
Designer Fanny Packs and Cross-Body Bags
Fanny packs and cross-body bags have seen a massive rise on the streets recently. And, this applies as much for men as it does for women. Designer labels are hopping on board to make this super functional style as fashion worthy as possible. We’ve seen everything from Prada fanny packs to Goyard cross-body bags for men.
90s are killin’ it!
The 90s are back and in the best way. Everything from oversized flannel shirts layered over a tee or tied around the waist, to tie-dye anything. Who would have thought chokers would have come back in such a big way? Dark lipsticks, thin sunglasses and gold hoop earrings. They are all here and rocking street fashion all over the world. Grunge is back, but it’s not the same grunge we saw before. This time is sleeker, it’s chic-er and it’s high end.
Comfort is King!
Finally, some fashion we’re happy to chill in. Brands have changed their image. It’s no longer for the exclusive cocktail party. Now, even the biggest brands are making items that you can lay on the couch in. These styles can be seen on the streets of all the major fashion cities of the world, from London to Paris to New York.
