Couture fashion and runways are still the epitome of glamour and style in today’s industry. However, diversified markets, multi-cultural expressions and identities have opened up a new urban style that we now call street fashion. With many women and men unable to purchase expensive and branded clothing, reinventing and recreating a whole new style from affordable pieces and vintage finds have led to a trend made global through social networking and fashion blogs.
Everyone now has a chance to express his or her own style through blogs like Tumblr and style websites like Lookbook. Photography and photo editing skills have also made styles more interesting to capture and share to others. If you want to express yourself in street-style fashion, here are some pointers you can keep in mind.
If you rummage through your mom or dad’s old wardrobe, you can actually spot some great vintage pieces. While certain vintage pieces can be seasonal, you can achieve a great look with a touch of the classic. Even the 90s denim jacket now enjoys a well-received comeback in mainstream and urban fashion. Colorful blazers, shoulder pads, and printed bottoms are returning trends these days. Vintage clothing stores can get you cheap and great finds. However, even boutiques and popular clothing stores incorporate vintage designs into their new collection. But nothing shows it best like authentic vintage.
