If you're like me, you have nothing remotely punk in your closet...or so you thought. My go to colors scream girly chic and my closet is overflowing with peaches, golds, beiges, and Tiffany blue. Now that we're falling into sweater weather, I broke out boots from the back of the closet. Anywhere you look, whether in Cosmo, Vogue, People or out your window, the Street Chic look is EVERYWHERE! My problem? I don't wear chains or spikes!
I knew I wanted to pair them with a really feminine dress, but didn't know where to go from there. I tried on a few and settled with a flowy, cream and gold polkadot dress. To bring the look together I threw on my favorite leather moto jacket to really bring out the leather details on the boots and give the look some street cred.
Here are some other ideas on how you can put together your own take on this fun fall trend.
First, the basics; grab a pair of dark skinny jeans, or leather leggings, and throw on a moto jacket. This is the simplest way to achieve the street feel with minimal effort. You can dress it up with some pumps, or throw on a pair of black boots (or booties!) and hit the road...don't forget your killer shades! You can add a dose of rebellion to any outfit with graphic tees, leather trim, heavy chains, spikes, skulls or zippers. Check out these ideas for a little punk, or a lot!
