Embrace neutrals and monochromatic style.
Neutral shades of black, white, nude, camel, gray, and beige are the most versatile palette you may go for to keep your street looks timeless and elegant. Like Kim, you may even go for a monochromatic black or white outfit as long as you keep the interest going with your fabric contrast fabrics and creative outfit structure. If you think your neutral outfit looks too plain, then spice it up with a leopard print clutch and bold red lips like Kim did.
Add some personality with catchy patterns and prints.
Like Kim, think of abstract prints and geometric patterns to add some modern feel to your street style. Wearing mixed prints on your outfit will make you look trendy and fashion-forward while keeping you effortless. Just go for one neutral pattern to team with a more elaborate print to keep your outfit sleek and polished. Going for the hints of red, cobalt blue, lime green, orange, and yellow could be great for adding some life to your fashion style.
Trade your miniskirts to high waist shorts.
Looking for ways to look feminine and chic without going for a skirt? Then go for chic high waist shorts with A-line silhouette to team with your feminine tops. The style of your shorts will resemble the feminine structure of the skirt while keeping you comfortable and chic on your street looks. Apart from comfort, high-waist shorts elongate your frame making your legs look leaner and longer. Feel free to go for colorful hues, playful pastels, and feminine floral prints to show off your personality.
Resort to relaxed, cool, and laid back silhouettes.
Jeans and tees may be the relaxed pieces that will first come into your mind, but to keep your style chic, better go for chic pants with slouchy fit or a chic blouse with drapey fit. When wearing a slouchy or non-fitting sweater, go for a fitted pair of pants to keep your looks polished and sleek. Topping your casual or dressy outfit with a relaxed coat or shawl will give an effortless vibe in you. Just skip those distressed, faded, ripped, and frayed jeans that will only take away the chic and sleek vibe in you.
Go for comfy yet stylish footwear.
Though wearing kitten heeled pumps and block heeled shoes may be chic and a bit comfortable compared to sky-high stilettos, going for a pair of chic sneakers, oxfords, loafers, and flats wouldn’t hurt. Like Kim, always go for chic, sleek, and elegant pieces so you’ll create a polished and effortlessly chic looks on your street style.
