Wear cool shoes with your sophisticated outfits.
A pair of cool shoes doesn’t necessary mean going for sneakers all the time. Like Angelica, you may resort to a chic pair of combat boots in the shades of pastel and lighter colors over black. This way, you’ll take a modern twist on the sporty trend dominated by canvas sneakers and sporty kicks. Feel free to team it with your shift dresses, body suits, and tennis skirts that look cool. Like Angelica, you may think of wearing your masculine oxford shoes with a pair of striped socks to look a bit sporty that will go perfectly with your chic white dress.
Trade your structured bags to effortlessly cool styles like a backpack.
Though structured bags add some elegance to your style, resorting to slouchy hobo bags and totes will bring some effortless vibe to your looks. Like Angelica, think of a leather backpack that will keep your hands free while making your military look effortless. Sling bags feel more comfortable over shoulder and handbags so feel free to go for bold colors that will add some life to your neutral wardrobe,
Go for free-flowing fabrics or add an effortless spin to your outfit.
To keep everything laidback and cool, think of going for non-clingy fabrics or top your chic outfits with sporty ensembles. If you usually wear your crop top and skirt with a trench coat or a chic blazer, think of swapping into a bomber jacket or a military one that will keep everything laidback. Like Angelica, think of tying a varsity jacket with your chic outfit, or simply crop your chic shirt to create a laidback style.
Resort to casual cool prints and novelty details on your outfits.
Incorporating prints and patterns to your outfits is a means of adding some interest to your style. However, skip overly sophisticated prints like houndstooth or floral that looks too done for your street style. Like Angelica, think of a camouflage print jacket that will add some edge to your casual outfit, or a paisley print shawl that can spice up your summer whites. Resorting to tribal prints, novelty prints, and stripes can also be ideal as they add some flair to your street looks while keeping it chic and laidback.
