If you’re looking for some tricks to add some flair to your street style, keep on reading to scoop some tricks from her.
Dress up your simple outfits with stylish and functional accessories.
Whether it’s a belt, bag, or shoes, accessories can make or break your look. Like Caroline, you may think of a printed scarf, suede mules, and a fringed leather bag that can dress up your all-white outfit. Or simply add a pop of color by matching the color of your sandals and bag that will still create a trendy yet cohesive look. If you’re a minimalist kind of woman, a brown leather belt may be enough to add some interest to your white dress and camel coat like Caroline did.
Pay attention to your structure and silhouette.
Sharp and clean lines will always make your street style polished and sleek. Like Caroline, you may go for a sweater but add some structure with a tulip skirt and a structured bag. For a more feminine vibe, go for an off shoulder blouse and team it with straight-leg pants with a forgiving silhouette. If you think your white tee and denim shorts sound basic, think of tying a sweater, vest, jacket and such on your waist just to add some effortlessly cool vibe.
Add some interest with your fabric textures.
There’s nothing more boring than wearing monochromatic outfit in the same fabric. If you wish to go for a monochromatic or basic look, always contrast your fabric textures by teaming glossy with matte and stiff with soft. Like Caroline, you may go for a metallic silver crop top and a leather jacket that will balance your glamorous statement, making your ensemble work in a casual setting. Also, teaming your breezy white blouse with a tweed skirt can be enough to add some flair to your street style without going overdone.
Take advantage of simple yet stylish prints.
Wearing prints and patterns to your outfits can be a means of looking stylish without going flashy. Like Caroline, take advantage of your classic striped shirt, camouflage print jacket, tribal print kimono and such that can add some personality to your casual street looks. Indeed, adding some flair to your street style is easy. All you need is to follow these styling tricks from Caroline and incorporate your own tweaks to make your outfits more personalized.
