From London to New York, Paris to Berlin — you find the streets in these cities ooze style on a daily basis. If you’re wondering how to nail this look then all you need is a few simple items. These staple pieces are a must-have for any fashionable, young trendsetter. Forget looking like a tourist, we know you’d rather stand out in style.
1. High Heel Boots
High Heel Boots | Skinny Jeans
Team a pair of luxe-inspired boots with a pair of light-coloured skinny jeans and a black turtle neck sweater and you have instant style. Add a loose-style mac and finish it off with some oversized sunglasses for the ultimate ‘just stepped off the catwalk and onto the streets’ look.
2. Style Studded Biker Jacket
This season you should be sporting the nude colour. We’ve spotted this colour in various forms but our favourite piece is this luxe style biker jacket. Its clean approach is fresh and will have you looking glam in no time. Team it with a pastel knit and dark skinny jeans.
3. Prints, Prints, Prints!
Dark Printed Dress | Metal Trim Flats
Your dress isn’t complete if it doesn’t have a good eye-catching print. We’ve gone for the tunic style, so you can easily style it with basic leggings or printed dark coloured tights. You can also leave your legs bare (depending on the weather). All you need to finish off the look is a pair of killer statement flats.
4. Chic Knits
Soft Knit Open Cardigan | Speckled Detailed Cardigan
The city chic look is what you see “on the streets”. A style that’s a mixture of modern, urban, elegant and that has an edgy flair. Chic knits always make a good combination of pulling this look off. Create an eclectic look that is both comfortable and offbeat.
5. Classic Denim
Denim is always big in the city, especially in London. From skinny fitted jeans to retro denim jackets. The key to wearing denim is wearing only one piece at a time. Although it can look quite trendy, don’t go for the denim on denim look. For the sleek city look avoid the ripped, torn up jeans. Your denim should be neat and clean like the jeans above.
6. Statement Jewellery
Statement Watch | Diamond Embellished Ring
Jewellery makes your outfit chic and stylish. Think anything from chunky bangles to designer inspired necklaces. This is where you get to bring out pops of colour and excitement to your outfit. Especially with this bang-on-trend neon watch. Spice up your outfit and go for a stunning, eye-catching spike detailed necklace. If you are into wearing rings, then load your fingers with multiple pieces. These go with everything from jeans to dresses.
7. Bold Accessories
Bold accessories will let your inner chic city look flow. A hat will get you noticed, but there is a way to pull this style off without looking like you’re trying too hard. Team this hat with a white knit and some dark coloured bottoms. We like accessories that look expensive, but these just have the impressive £5 price tag.
