Maybe it’s the Detroit girl in me, or maybe it’s the love of hip hop & electro. But even as I get older, my wardrobe still has moments of inspiration that come from urban vibes. The challenge as we mature- is how to do it tastefully & not look like we think we’re still under 21 years old. And better yet, how do we make smart purchases that can last a few
seasons years for that matter, and still be relevant later on?
Casual & chic. Shiny & sleek. A shiny bomber jacket can instantly spruces up a tee & skinnies and transform it to an urban vibe. Try it in a new neutral, such as blush, olive, or navy. All go well with just about any color palette. Play around with sizes & lengths. Overall this is a great addition to your wardrobe for summer evenings, rainy days, or in & out of air-conditioning.
Flash your fab. There isn’t much more that screams street vibes than a ton of gold chains- where more is more (is not enough!). Whether you layer up or go minimal with a statement piece, it’s important to make a little of an investment into your adornments. Green ring or necklace marks is not a good look on anyone! Also with these pieces, they can easily be worn with a LBD or a formal occasion and be nothing short of sophisticated.
Carefree cool factor. Seriously, could anyone look any cooler wearing a jogger with heels? These modern day harem inspired silhouettes look amazing with casual with a wedged high top or your sexiest stilettos. They’re great for days your have a ton of running around to do, physically maybe not feeling your finest, or wanting simply wanting your outfit to say “I didn’t try to be cool, it just kind of happened”. Again, you can never go wrong with a neutral-and yes, camouflage is considered a new neutral.
Street & sweet. Pretty & powerful. Floral prints on any sport attire is insta-“althleisure”. But don’t be fooled by the soft petals- along with their namesake line, adidas partners up with Stella McCartney & Rita Ora for some serious high performance quality that take you right into action. Perfect look as you bloom in spring & summer.
As you sport street chic, here’s a playlist for you to vibe to as you drive, entertain, or walk down the street with your iBeats ear buds. Enjoy!
