Though the runways are full of haute couture designs, it is also the attendants, who set the latest trends. Fashion Week is the perfect time to show off your street style and to capture the attention of the media and editors. In the halls of Fashion Week shows, you’ll meet some incredibly stylishly dressed people that have extravagant tastes you would love to be with. So, if you’re mesmerized by the street style scene and want to get in during the next fashion month, keep on reading for your style guidelines to get photographed at the most fashionable moment of the year.
If you’re not bold enough to be uniquely dressed on the Fashion Week, you may go on simple ensembles but pick a statement piece. Statement shoes, belt, handbag, hat or any other accessory are more likely to be captured by street style photographers. Just be sure that your statement accessories will go well with your outfit. For instance, Kayture blogger Kristina Bazan opted for a jewel crown headband and coordinated it with royal-inspired that reflected the regal theme look. Also, her rounded yin-yang clutch was perfected by her abstract print outfit and neutral coat. Don’t fret as your statement pieces don’t have to be expensive as you can always take the DIY route to customize them and make them more eye-catching.
If you’re not a fan of statement accessories, go for unique cuts and structure of your outfit for them to catch attention. If you can get your outfit tailored, is the better so you can decide on the styling. First, you must know what your overall vibe is going to look and how are you going to style them. Like the famous street style bloggers, you can take the plunging necklines, backless styles, asymmetrical cuts and such.
For a quick eye-catching statement, you may go for bright and fluorescent colors of your outfit. Think of bright yellows, oranges, greens, or even color blocked ones that give a lively punch to your look. Just be creative in blending the colors together if you don’t want to blind someone. For instance, the Blonde Salad blogger Chiara Ferrgani wore a bright yellow dress coat, coordinated it with chic sunglasses and yellow clutch, and pair it with a pair of black boots for a great contrast on vivid color. But, if you’re not a fan of bright shades, you may go for Kristina Bazan’s style sporting a pastel colored coat with an all-white outfit including the tights.
Quirky prints are means of expressing your creative street style. You may go for novelty prints, cartoon characters, abstract prints, geometric patterns, graphic animal prints, or even classic ones with mixed patterns. If you want your printed outfit to be the focus of the attention, prefer your shoes and other accessories in shades of neutrals like beige, nude, black, white, or even a similar shade of the outfit.
If you’re not into prints, then go for creative embellishments and details on your outfit. Though quirky embellished outfits are sometimes hard to find, you could add some personal touches to make it more unique and creative. Chiara Ferrgani creatively wore a sheer candy-inspired ensemble on top of her classic polka dots dress that resulted into incredible statement style.
For a street style statement, consider dressing slightly inappropriate and work the extremes. Street style photographers tend to lean either toward the most over-the-top ensembles or slightly inappropriate pieces that show the creativity of the wearer. Sometimes, temperatures don’t translate into images as we’ve been seeing sweaters, puffer coats, fur pieces, and such even if the temperatures were not so friendly. So, dressing weather-appropriate is not always a necessity.
Last, but not least, be where the photographers are and the chances of getting photographed will increase.
