As a working mom, the street style look is my favourite choice for weekend attire. Although it is much more comfortable than my work clothes, this outfit still feels eye-catching and fashionable. If you’ve been scoping out this casual but edgy look then check out my list of five essential must-haves to easily rock this outfit.
Street Style Essentials
Chic and stylish, the street style look is coveted by many, and it’s so easy to achieve. I’ve taken the casual approach to this particular look: sneakers, ripped jeans, a loose tee and aviators. Attitude is style, so adapt this one to fit your own! Here is what you need:
Chuck Taylor Converse are a must. They make them in every size and every colour these days so pick one to match your style. I love when my boys and I are all wear our Converse, as I rarely get to match with them (unless I’m wearing a Star Wars tee). Ankle booties also look great if you would like to dress this look up a bit.
I am sucker for a tee with a catchy saying. Most of mine have something to do with either coffee or parenting. This adorable “Raising Boys” tee from Ford + Wyatt LLC (don’t forget to shop small!) is my new favourite to show off my motherhood pride. Scroll down for a few more that I currently love!
Distressed Denim Jeans
In my opinion, you can’t have enough pairs of distressed denim in your closet. If you don’t want to pay for holes, learn how to make your own in my previous post. For fit, a good rule of thumb is if you are wearing loose fitting bottoms, wear a tight fitting shirt and visa versa. This will allow you to keep a nice shape to your figure. I chose boyfriend fit distressed jeans for this outfit but I was also dying to wear my new baggy tee. To shorten the length and give it a tighter fit, I simply added a knot in the corner. Ta-da!
Since this look has a lot of masculine qualities, a chunky watch is another staple. I have a few but I love the bright pop of pink of this “Rachel” watch. Grab it from Wristology Watches for $39 with coupon code KRISTIN20.
If you don’t have a pair of aviators yet, you don’t know what you are missing. I wear mine everyday! Gold rims and a green lens are my personal fave. Ray Ban’s are obviously worth the splurge but if you’re like me and you need a prescription, head to GlassifyME to get these. Use coupon code KRISTIN25 for another great discount.
Slightly messy hair and a bold red lip are the finishing touches that you need for your street style outfit. Here are a few more of my favourites:
