This Season’s Most Popular Street Style Trends To Try Now

March 14, 2018

Each February, the fashion world comes together to give us a healthy dose of style inspiration. And although trends are forecasted on the runway, the streets outside the shows have become the real runway to determine what to wear before the new collections hit stores. As fashion month comes to an end, take note from the industry’s most stylish on what you need in your closet ASAP to stay ahead of the curve.

Chain Sunglasses

Sunglasses have had the spotlight for the past few seasons with Matrix-style frames and bright hues, and now even more eye-catching with a chain attached. This funky trend is making a comeback as seen in Alessandra Rich’s latest collaboration with Linda Farrow inspired by the glasses her father used to wear.

Cowboy-Inspired Boots

Seen in collections like ZimmermannCoach, and Louis Vuitton, the cowboy boot is making an 80’s comeback after dominating the streets this season. The modern iteration elevates the casual ankle boot to couture with detailed patterns and embroidery, paired with a dress or vintage denim for a cool, Americana-inspired aesthetic.

Yellow

Fiery colors like reds and oranges were present with yellow appearing as more than just an accessorizing pop of color. Try the bold trend with a yellow coat over all black or even a simple sweater under a suit to really make an entrance.

Statement Belts

No longer just an accessory of function, belts were the main attraction on the streets this year. Seen fastened around a suit, coat, or even tied and draped down to the knee, brands like Off-White have paved the way for even a seat buckle being acceptable in your closet. The bolder, the better.

Translucent Bags

Even the day-to-day necessities were outfit accessories this season with clear handbags that showcased everything from your phone case, makeup bag, and chargers.

Midi Meets Knee Highs 

With winter in full swing, staying warm played a crucial role in this season’s street style. Trade in your jeans for knee high boot paired with longer dresses and skirts that hit just at the top of the boot, as seen on runways like Dior and Fendi.
