Look at any street style roundup during Fashion Week, and the New York–based, St. Petersburg native Anya Ziourova is always on the editorial-worthy forefront of the bunch. Known for her sharp tailoring and chic looks, she has a tendency to stand out between prominent prints to monochromatic and back again. Looking for ways to be sought by street photographers with your editorial-worthy street looks? Keep on scrolling to scoop some of Anya’s tricks.
Haute couture accessories can make a bold statement resembling the editorial and runway look, but perfect for your street style. Oversized earrings, statement chokers, avant-garde ear cuffs, quirky shoes, statement-making clutches and such can be great to create the style you’re aiming for. Like Anya, you may think of wearing a statement choker with bold gemstones to spice up your little dress. Wearing a pair of quirky print sandals as well as editorial-inspired belt with your typical outfit can instantly refresh your street look.
Wearing bold colors on your outfits can make your street style noticeable, therefore, can catch the attention of street style photographers. Like Anya, you may stick to the jewel tone shades of amethyst purple, ruby red, sapphire blue, emerald green, as well as neon shades of yellow, orange, pink and such. It’s up to you whether you want to dress down your bold-colored piece by wearing it with neutral shades, or intentionally make an eclectic look by wearing unexpected color combinations together in your outfit.
Wearing prints can be a means of showing your personality too. But, to make them an editorial-worthy look, wear your outfit in a bit unexpected way or pick eye-catching prints that make a statement. Instead of just wearing the pajama trend, Anya opted for a matching set of geometric prints in silk fabric resembling the peacock prints. Like her, you may take your classic stripes up a notch by wearing your striped robe with pants, as well as wearing your polka dots dress with a matching shirt.
Pay attention to your outfit structure and silhouette to create an editorial-worthy look. Anything exaggerated, oversized, messy, and unique seems editorial-inspired that oversized coats once existed only in the high fashion magazines that are now street-style friendly. So, like Anya, look for oversized capes, billowy tops, structured coats, and architectural dresses to look high fashion on your street-style.
If you’re not a fan of bold colors and flashy prints, then stick to solid-colored pieces like Anya did while keeping it sleek, modern, and fashion-forward. Going for a monochromatic look is a timeless way of looking elegant and chic on your street-style, and contrasting fabric, as well as playing with outfit proportions and structure, will make your looks more interesting and stylish. Indeed, creating an editorial-worthy street-style requires a bold personality and confidence to pull off, but having them can make those street-style photographers chase you.
