If you’re living in the big city, you might be resorting to leather jackets, military coats, and edgy boots to keep you stylish and functional. Mind behind the Thrifts and Threads blog, Brittany Xavier is a style blogger from Old Town Pasadena known for her urban chic style that might inspire your fall looks. If you’re looking for ways how to make an urban style chic, keep on reading to scoop some tricks from Brittany.
Add a trendy spin to your classic ensembles.
We all love a good classic, but if you really want to refresh your wardrobe, invest in a timeless piece with a modern-day twist. Like Brittany, think of a classic chiffon blouse that can look modern with a pair of non-boxy culottes and edgy combat boots, or a classic striped dress topped with a camel leather coat and lace-up flats perfect for the fall season. By adding some modern vibe to your classic ensembles, you don’t have to shop for fresh pieces this season, therefore extending your wardrobe strategically.
Embrace edgy and modern silhouettes.
Edgy style may be known for leather ensembles and punk accessories, but make everything work for your personality. Instead of going for leather and gothic-rock styles, resort to modern silhouettes that can update your style without going overboard. Like Brittany, think of modern silhouettes that can update your overall look this fall season. Silk tunics are far more chic than knits that will go perfectly with your skinny jeans and feminine pumps. Wrap blouses are timeless and universally flattering, but go for a modern style with metal accents that will bring the urban vibe in you. Cropping your classic shirt and teaming it with your sexy shorts can also be great to show some skin this fall without looking summer-inspired.
Complete your urban style with fall accessories.
Think of a skinny scarf, messenger bag, and boots to complete your urban style while keeping you season appropriate. As practical as it is fashionable, the long rectangle scarf is often the go-to accessory of street women everywhere as it wards off the chill from the cooler fall weather. While rectangle scarves can be seen adorning the necks of urban dwellers all year round, you may also go for a skinny scarf to make an edgy statement by wearing it with a plunging neckline dress and boots like Brittany did. Stilettos have their place, and it’s not when pulling together your street look. Stylish yet wearable footwear is the name of the game, so bring on the boots. Also, opt for cross-body bags that will keep you effortless while having that urban chic style. Indeed, an urban chic style is a great look to get this fall season.
