Today it's hard to imagine a world without street style fashion blogs. Interestingly, these popular websites are a phenomenon that has only emerged over the past 10 years. Now, sites like The Sartorialist, Jak & Jil, and Face Hunter, are household names in the world of fashion enthusiasts.
On the streets this week, there have been sights of denim, studs, stripes and mint green everywhere and we love how these street chic fashionistas have incorporated the latest trends into their personal sense of style. Take a peek at some of the amazing bold looks we found and get inspiration to rock these styles in your summer wardrobe!
Mint Green Mania
The cool mint tone is everywhere this season, from accessories, to dresses to shoes and we love how one of our fav bloggers, Blair of Atlantic-Pacific incorporated an elegant mint green dress with some nude shoes and a light brown tote for her day at the Kentucky Derby. Like this look? Get a similar one by Sandro!
From London, to Paris, to New York and Copenhagen, fashion enthusiasts, and trendsetters all stand apart and together at the same time due to their keen sense of style. This week, we found a common trend among the fashion street elite and the looks were a perfect transition into the spring weather we are looking forward to!
Prints, patterns and pastels seemed to be the hot style on the streets this week with fantastic spring patterns like floral and polka dot. We chose some of our favorite looks of the week from street style blogs like The Locals, FabSugar, Elle and of course, The Sartorialist to give you all a little inspiration and insight as to how you can incorporate pastels into your look. All of these women show the combination of pastels and prints in their own unique style and prove that there are multiple avenues you can take to wearing pastels.
As The Sartorialist, Scott Schumann, so brilliantly pointed out while searching the style-forward streets of Paris, big, decorative necklaces are a huge hit right now and we can definitely expect to see more of these looks this spring and summer. These pieces are big, bold, and can really change up an entire outfit. There are multiple directions to go with these statement necklaces, and there are various looks to fit any style.
The tribal beaded necklaces are a fantastic ethnic look to add into your wardrobe. We know that these large, bulky pieces are a bit eye catching so if you are not looking to draw too much attention, the tribal beaded and fringed necklaces are the way to go. While maintaining the big bold look, they don't necessarily have big bold colors. This makes the necklace become apart of the ensemble rather than the ensemble itself.
Yesterday, Burberry launched Art of the Trench, a brand new website devoted to chronicling the past, present and future of the iconic wardrobe staple. The site posts street style photos of people worldwide sporting their Burberry trenches. Art of the Trench has many future collaborations with street style and fashion photographers in the works, but they're setting the bar pretty high by commissioning Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist for the first collection of “trench portraits.” Professional photographers notwithstanding, Burberry invites you to submit your own photos of you or your friends wearing the Burberry trench. The site will select its favorite images to publish online to “create a body of images reflecting personal style from across the globe.”
