How to Get the Perfect Street Cool Look

  • This is the type of look you would easily find me in everyday if it were possible. I’m all about looking simple and chic with a bit of a west coast cool edge. 

  • A black coat is a must for any wardrobe as you can wear it with almost anything. I love a piece of clothing that you can wear so often you really get your money’s worth. One of my top tips of fashion advice is to invest in what you will wear over and over. We all feel guilty when we see that expensive dress in our closets that we just had to have but only wore once.

  • To achieve this kind of look take a classic coat and trousers, but then mix it up by showing a little bit of skin with a croptop. Easily makes it young and edgy rather than too basic.

  • Go-to cool girl trick: swap out fancy heels for sneakers. (or if you’re in more of an office setting and aren’t able to wear sneakers try a pair of patent leather flats).

  • Add chunky statement accessories, like a choker and chain link necklace for the final touch. 

  • The final outcome: A fresh, updated, street-cool look.

    Yes, the sneakers are the best way to give our style some rest, some edgy glam.. but even if I promise my self to buy them I will always come back home with new pair of high heels.. Creepy, isn`t it? huh :D I adore wearing black coats. Simplicity and elegance.
    I am glad to following you ;)

    Love this look for all the “mixes” it has going on: high and low price point, casual and dressy, street style and office chic. I don´t think I could pull off this look, but well done. Love how you make it work.

  17. Yes! Such a huge fan of swapping sneakers for heels with not-so-sporty outfits! I have been rocking the converse on my walk to work with Tibi dresses and tights, and then leaving them on :P Also, I absolutely love your belly button ring! Where is it from? Mine is so old and tired but looks terrible when I take it out!
