From Madrid, Spain, Priscila Hernández created the Blog Personal Style in 2010 where she shows her perfect “it” girl street looks, combining classic with bohemian chic and romantic touches that makes her feel comfortable and identified. Looking for inspiration to vamp up your street looks? Keep on scrolling to scoop some style ideas.
Priscila loves monochrome or tonal dressing head-to-toe. When we say monochromatic dressing, it suggests dressing in the close shades and tones of one color. Remember, your attire doesn’t always have to be black. For instance, Pricila dressed in a light brown coat with a deeper brown palazzo pants; and a bright red skirt with a tartan print blouse in red color. You may spice up your style by matching the same shade of bag and shoes; or opt for popping color to avoid looking boring and plain. Monochromatic dressing is a styling tactic that can get one look taller or leaner because when a woman dresses all in one color, she creates a vertical image.
Whether neutrals or bright colors, mixing-and-matching your accessories creates interest in your street looks. Like Pricila, you may opt for red sunglasses, red clutch, and red boots when wearing a neutral colored outfit; or brown boots, brown tote bag, and brown-tinted sunglasses when wearing casual denim jeans outfit.
Mixing prints and patterns can be a great way of adding interest to your style as they are uplifting and eye-catching. Priscila breaks the dullness of the classic outfit by pairing larger scale print top with a smaller scale print pants in the same neutral color. On the other hand, she matched a similar print checkered top with a tartan print pants in blending shades to avoid clashing the style too much. But if you’re not into print mixing, then sport one print at a time and finish your looks with simple and muted accessories that create balance and proportion to your overall style.
Graphic tops are trendy and casual alternatives to button-down shirts. Be tasteful and creative like Pricila by teaming your graphic tops with bottoms such as denim shorts, leather skirts, miniskirts and finish your looks with a pair of boots or classic shoes.
Wearing bright colors like hot pink, bold red, cobalt blue, emerald green, yellow and such is a great way to add some fun and happiness to your street looks. Like Pricila, you may opt for a hot pink sweater and boots, a bright red jumpsuit, or a bright yellow knitted top with your casual ensembles. Wear one vivid color at a time to keep the balance of your style.
Pricila loves elegant and sophisticated accessories to dress up her casual street looks. Like her, you may opt for an elegant bag, classic pumps, chic sunglasses, gold sandals, jewelry, and such. Look for versatile accessories that can be easily teamed with any items on your wardrobe. Colors such as black, white, nude, gray, silver, and gold are highly versatile to be paired with any outfit colors.
Prints like animal prints are classic and timeless. It’s a way of showing your fierce nature in a subtle and tamed way. Like Pricilia, you may sport an animal print boots with your all white outfit; or a zebra print top with an all-black outfit letting the animal print your statement piece.
Your street looks are a great way to express your individuality. As streets being your stage to showcase your personal style, be fabulous and creative like Pricila and be a show stopper on the streets.
