Looking for inspiration on how to look effortless on your street looks? Keep on scrolling to scoop some of her tricks.
- Trade your bandana scarves with silk scarves.
Bandana scarves may be the most effortless accessory you may think of apart from sneakers, but they’re not the most chic. Like Trine, opt for silk scarves that will give your looks some elegance while keeping it effortlessly cool. Though tank tops and button-down shirts can be great to wear with silk scarves, nothing beats the off-shoulder tops and dresses perfect for the spring season. Like her, always go for the matching or neutral shade on your silk scarf to make it complementing to your outfits.
- Wear structured pieces with oversized and slouchy coats.
Oversized coats and floor length cardigan may be effortless, but they’ll only look chic and polished depending on what outfits you’re going to wear with them. Instead of wearing them with voluminous dresses and puffy skirts, wear structured pieces like skinny jeans or boot cut trousers with them. Like Trine, polish your trendy outfit with a pair of wedge boots or chunky heeled sandals as stiletto heels will only make your frame disproportionally larger and heavy.
- Go for a relaxed and laid back silhouettes.
Soft, relaxed, and draped silhouettes channel the laid back vibe on your street style. Apart from casual denim, look for slouchy pants, silk pants, chiffon blouse, drapey kimono and such to wear the effortless look with ease. Like Trine, you may top your flared pants with a robe kimono to add some carefree touch to your trendy outfit. Also, trading your skinny jeans with culottes, palazzo pants, wide leg trousers and harem pants can be great to achieve the effortless style you’re aiming for.
- Opt for boxy and structured outfits.
Boxy and structured silhouettes may not be the most flattering style to show your womanly curves, but they actually make your outfit sleek and composed. Like Trine, add some structure with your turtleneck sweater with a pair of boxy trousers, or add some architectural look to your fitted sweater with a structured vest. This way, you’ll keep the balance and proportions on your outfit while making them effortless and cool for a perfect street style.
- Wear effortless patterns and prints.
Add some interest to your outfit with effortless patterns and prints. Like Trine, think of stripes, checks, retro florals, abstract and such to look trendy without going over-the-top. This time, you may want to avoid mixing prints intentionally as it can hardly make your outfit look polished. Instead, stick to the traditional way of wearing prints with plain ensembles making it cohesive and sleek. Indeed, an effortless street style is one of the most comfortable yet fashion-forward styles you can have to make a trendy statement on the streets.
