Nailing Your Street Style Look

When you hear the phrase ‘big city’ you think: awe-provoking sights, bustling boulevards and, of course, slayage all around. It’s without question that the city streets have been transformed into a veritable runway full of non-stop fashion. Bringing forth a cool, eclectic mix of trends, they place a spotlight on personal style and fearless self-expression.

Keep it simple, transcend the norm or opt for a new look. Whatever your sweet heart desires, all the outfit inspiration you could ever need is right before your eyes. After all, we know the streets are the real catwalks.


Feminine and sweet, but with a playful flavor. 

Think classic pieces like tailored tops, whimsical ruffles, form-fitted knits, lovely pleats, tapered bottoms and loosely shaped skirts. Patterns tend to be simple, such as stripes, gingham and refined polka dots. Nevertheless, have fun and inject your personal style by combing various hues and quirky prints.
