Wearing your matching blazer and pants with a graphic tee and a pair of classic pumps will make your street style a bit unexpected. If you’re tired of wearing tuxedo blazers, think of a boyfriend style that also looks edgy. Just go for a pair of sneakers to add some sporty cool vibe to your street style.

Spice your summer style with prints.

Whether you’re a fan of print mixing or a traditional plain-and-prints style, summer patterns will instantly add some flair to your looks. Like Sonja, you may start by going for floral print overalls rather than the usual denim one, or team your boxy tops with a floral print skirt. If you wish for a trendy look, think of neutral patterns that can be worn together while keeping your style polished like stripes, checks, and polka dots. Just keep your street-chic looks effortless by going for a pair of slip-on sandals, baseball caps, or ankle strap heels like Sonja did.

Go street-chic with breezy dresses.

To make your summer style a bit feminine, opt for dresses instead of jeans. Like Sonja, you may think of a breezy dress with a free-flowing silhouette that will keep you cool and fresh regardless of your color choices. A long sleeved mini dress can be great for summer if it has a lightweight fabric and free-flowing silhouette. Like Sonja, just complete your street-chic looks by going for a sun hat, making your style season-appropriate.

Trade your favorite jeans with wide-leg or flared trousers.

Whether you wish some carefree or bohemian vibe, a pair of wide leg pants will make your outfit breezy at the same time free-spirited. When going for flared pants, always go for a crop top that will add some hint of your midriff, therefore, making your overall outfit balanced. If you have an eye for wide-leg or palazzo pants, resort to boxy tops that will add some structure to your billowy bottom.

Switch between athletic pants and denim.
