Looking fashionable and stylish on your street looks may be great, but having an editorial-worthy look may seem challenging. The mind behind the Thankfifi blog, Wendy Gilmour is known for her simple, streamlined, and trendy editorial-worthy looks that makes her notable on her street style photos. Looking for inspiration to create an editorial street style look? Keep on reading to scoop some of her tricks.
Go for simple, streamlined, and chic pieces.
Like Wendy, opt for simple, streamlined, and chic pieces to be the foundation of your outfit. For instance, going for a chic peach-colored sweater to wear with your camel leather skirt will be great to look editorial-worthy on your street style. Remember, having an editorial look doesn’t mean always going for avant-garde styles as a streamlined look will always be timeless and elegant. You may also think of a nude fit-and-flare dress with stylish gathers on front to create some interest to your looks without piling on too many accessories. Like her, add some edge to your simple dress with a camel leather jacket that can make you stylish from day to night.
Opt for architectural and proportioned silhouette.
Oversized trend may be fashion-forward, but keeping your balance in your outfit can make your style more editorial-worthy. Like Wendy, always keep a great waist definition whether you’re wearing a dress, pants, skirts, or billowy top. Going for a crisp button-down shirt with a slit skirt can be a means of adding some flair to your architectural style. For a casual look, you may simply resort to your favorite pair of skinny jeans as long as you keep your top a bit architectural, drapey or boxy.
Have a great color combination on your outfits.
Color blocking and monochromatic style can be great, but think of a lot of color combinations that you wouldn’t normally wear and still look great together. If you’ll observe Wendy’s style, she manages to wear clashing color combinations without making them look harsh and strong in the eyes. For instance, if you wish to wear red or orange, better team them with white or nude shade rather than black that will make them look too catchy and blinding. You may think of wearing navy with muted pink, pink with olive green, deep purple with camel and such to create an editorial-worthy look.
Play with prints and patterns.
Mixing your patterns and prints on your outfit may be trendy but doesn’t always look polished and smart. So like Wendy, stick to the print mixing rules or simply team your printed piece with a plain colored piece to create stunning looks. If it sounds challenging for you, then resort to a color blocked or printed dress that will do tricks for you like Wendy did, wearing her checkered tweed dress with a pink beanie that created a girly vibe while staying into the editorial-worthy look.
Be creative on your layers.
Layering is considered trendy, but it can also swamp your frame or make you look heavier than you are. So, always keep the lightest layers beneath and heavy layers on top of your outfit. Also, think of creative cuts on your outfits that can be great to be paired with other basic pieces like a button-down shirt, sweater, or tank top. Wearing a striped shirtdress with a tulip skirt like Wendy did can also be great to channel your artistic vibe on the streets. With these inspirations from Wendy, you’ll surely create an editorial-worthy look like she always does.
