One of my favorite trends from 2020 has been adding elements of street style into my wardrobe. It used to intimidate me, but as I experimented more I realized how easy it is to put together an effortlessly-chic streetwear look. I love these outfits for days when I’m out running errands or just lounging around at home. They are super versatile and work for a lot of different situations!
When I first start styling a street style outfit, I like to stick to items in a black and white color scheme. This is easy, as many of my trendier pieces tend to lean black and white anyways. For my own personal take on street style, I always choose a more “athletic” piece as the staple. For today’s look, it was my biker shorts. I’ve been living in these lately and I knew they would be the perfect foundation for this outfit. I then chose my black puffer jacket and paired it with a white turtleneck for some contrast. To tie everything together, I accessorized with my chic gold hoops, nylon crossbody, and chunky Filas. Casual, cute, and so comfortable!
I’ll be honest- when I first found out that combining denim washes was going to be a trend in 2020, I was hesitant. I wrote a blog post about easing yourself into it (using black denim and navy denim as my example) but was unsure if I would ever mix two shades of blue in my ensembles. Fast forward to July, and combining denim washes is now one of my favorite trends I’m seeing right now. Who would’ve thought? Not me!
I had been on the hunt for the perfect pair of two-tone denim jeans all summer and finally found them a few weeks ago. They’re different from anything else I have in my closet and I love how trendy (but simple) they are. When styling these, I like to try to keep my top pretty basic since I know that the jeans are the true star of the show. Paired with some trendy gold jewelry and a simple black headband, this outfit is good to go!
I’ve been sharing some fancier #OOTDs with you all lately, so I hope you enjoy this more casual look. This is a pretty good representation of what I wear on a day-to-day basis when I don’t have a ton of errands to run and I’m mainly working from home.
Do you all prefer the casual or fancy looks? Let me know in the comments!
You ever feel like dressing up “just because”? That was me this morning. No plans, no errands to run. I just felt like putting on a cute outfit and feeling good about myself. I snagged this Urban Outfitters romper one of my first days on the job at Uptown Cheapskate, and I’ve been looking for a reason to wear it ever since. As you can see, I eventually decided I don’t always need a reason to wear my favorite clothes. Simply wanting to is reason enough.
I wanted to keep this look pretty classic, so I decided to stick to the greyscale color scheme and accessorize with simple black accessories. I’m in love with the new bag I got from JW PEI and hope to add some more styles to my collection in the future. I feel like it added just the right amount of “extra” to my outfit!
For those of you who have been following along for a while, you may have noticed that this romper looks familiar to the dress I wore for my blog’s first anniversary shoot. I’m in love with plaid, so even though I recognized that I already had a similar item in my closet, I caved and bought this romper anyways. Do you have any prints or patterns that you’re drawn to over and over again? Let me know in the comments so I feel less alone!
If you were a pre-teen in the late 2000s to early 2010s, you probably remember the iconic color combination that was hot pink and lime green. It was almost unescapable- I feel like everything from clothing to PB Teen home décor was covered in those complimentary colors during that time period. But just because colors are complimentary, that is, colors that opposite of each other on the color circle, doesn’t mean they automatically go together. If you decide to pair complimentary colors together (especially pink and green), you have to be strategic. Otherwise, you’ll unintentionally look like your 2009 middle school self.
To correctly style complimentary colors, you should pick one color to be your main color and one to be your accent color. (For this outfit, I chose green as my main and pink as my accent.) Add some neutrals (mine is white) so the two colors don’t seem completely overwhelming. And whenever possible, don’t pair a neon color with anything other than a neutral. Since I chose light green and light pink, the colors seem less harsh and look more cohesive together.
With all that being said, feel free to be adventurous when pairing colors together! My recommendations are just that- recommendations- and are not the be-all and end-all of fashion color theory. Be creative, and have fun!
It’s getting hot in Texas, so I’m always looking for easy-breezy outfits to choose on days I need to be out and about running errands. This is one of my new favs! The silky top is super lightweight and keeps me super cool, and the shorts are stretchy and comfortable. Paired with my wedge sandals that are meant to provide a comfortable walking experience, this outfit is perfect for the days that I’m on the go!
I always struggled with wearing tie-front shirts because I felt like my bra was always showing, but recently I saw a TikTok that showed how to tie the front around your bra to completely stop that from happening. A game-changer for sure!
