Yes, the term “street style” is extremely overused–to a nauseating extent–and yes, the phenomenon has created some ego maniacs (you know who you are!), but what we can’t knock about street style is all the incredible styling tricks we’ve learned from it’s stars over the years. Hello, half tuck! What did we do before we knew you? Oh, my, red lipstick–how you change an outfit!
Street style stars dress as boldly and and unabashedly as we all secretly wish we could–and we have to give them props for that. That’s how they get strangers to stop and stare, that’s how they photographers to point and click, that’s how they get sites like ours to devote entire articles to their every outfit. That’s how they earn endless compliments and accolades from the fashion elite (yes, even Vogue). That’s how little people become stars! It’s the American Dream of fashion.
Luckily, you don’t need a banging body or a closet like Anna Wintour’s to dress like a street style star – whether your “street” is a quiet cul de sac in Nebraska or a bustling sidewalk in Manhattan, all it takes is a little fashion savvy. We’ve made it very easy–just click through the slideshow above, rinse and repeat.
