Streetwear is the epitome of casual, and its loose-fitting iterations give a non-conforming salute to modern fashion. But this aesthetic isn’t as complicated as you might assume, and when you know how to match them with specific pieces, especially your closet staples, there’s no better way to update those #OOTDs than with a touch of street.
If you’re into copping this statement-making style, here’s how to incorporate elements from the new #GUESSOriginals collection into your closet by checking out some ideas here:
1. A Cropped Tee
Displaying that mid-section might be a bit more comfortable for some more than others, but balancing it out with a high-waisted pair of paper-bag trousers should pare down those hesitations. Polish the look up by selecting a trouser fabric that’s a little more stiff, like a cotton poplin or something with a little stretch, but if you’d like to take it down to a relaxed vibe, try a linen blend for a slouchy, lounge-y look.
2. Oversized Denim Jacket
The boxy silhouette of an oversized denim jacket packs a definite streetwear punch, and pairing it with your trusty LBD makes for a perfect contrast. The feminine lines of a dress give a girly spin to the roomy shape of the denim jacket. Drape it over the shoulders for an alternative way to wear it, and finish off with either a pair sneakers if you’re attending a concert with your SO, or opt for stilettos for a night out with the girls.
3. Mom Jeans
A pair of mom jeans should be a welcome addition to your go-to denims because of how versatile it is. Dress it up or down as you please by wearing it with your choice footwear, but topping this with a structured and tailored blazer gives it a no-nonsense approach. Whether you’re attending a meeting with a client or catching a flight to your next destination, this is a combination that’s stylishly fail-safe.
If there’s one piece that embodies streetwear style, a pullover is definitely it. Similar to the other items we’ve discussed, a sweatshirt is an item that you can wear almost everywhere, especially when the temps are cooler. Balance the casual energy of this top by wearing over a skirt—and even with skirts, the possibilities are endless! Take an a line silhouette for a cute and girly look, or opt for a body-hugging skirt style if you’re looking for a sexier ensemble. Whether your length is mini or midi, this pairing surely scores high on the fashion charts.
