Gone are the days when street style was all about throwback jerseys, ripped denim jeans and piled on bracelets. In recent years, street style has undergone a couture makeover that has seen women up the fashion stakes and take to the streets draped in inspiring outfits that ooze edginess and sophistication. From ballerina skirts to a pink pop of colour, a few smart stylish details can give an old outfit a new lease of life that keeps it looking fresh as the seasons change. Here are a few couture street style ideas to try this spring:
1. The Power Suit
Once reserved for boardroom meetings, a monochrome two-piece suit is a powerful statement that can take you from a day of work to a night of fun on the town. Warm enough to keep you from shivering without a coat, it’s the perfection winter-to-spring transition piece.
2. Pink Is The New Black
There is no doubt about it: pink is the most in demand shade of 2017. A feminine shade that flatters every complexion, pink adds a romantic touch to every outfit. For an edgier look, pair it with a black belt and a towering pair of heels.
3. One Size Up
An oversized shirt is the perfect layering piece for the spring season. Worn over a cotton jumper during the chillier evenings, it adds dimension to the ensemble while casually tucked into a pair of trousers is the epitome of casual chic. For a couture vibe, add fringes.
4. Give an accent of colour
5. Flow With The Wind
Spring is the season for silky, flowy dresses that fly away with the wind. It’s the perfect choice for an afternoon outing in the city.
Dropping logos were they could be seen was once one of fashion’s biggest faux pas. Times have changed: the power of brand iconography has left its mark absolutely everywhere, sparking one of the most popular trends of the season.
7. Ballerina Tutu
Tutus aren’t just for ballerinas anymore. This spring the flowy tutu is taking the streets, transforming an ordinary errand into an enchanted fairytale. Finish off the look with a high-heeled pair of sandals.
