I have been getting a lot of direct message on Instagram about how I always stay so cool yet chic while walk on the streets showcasing my Indian streetstyle, well it’s really one hell of a task especially when in India because people here are mostly not habituated with style or fashion for that matter also it’s not easy to walk past a jam- packed street without giving a damn. But definitely not impossible it needs your confidence and the right kind of fashion.
So let’s get into how to make it happen for you so that you can be next streetstyle star.
1) Wear comfortable clothes:-
I love wearing sequin minis also my favourite is a cocktail dress but when it comes to street fashion I’ll never go for my favourite but always opt for something cool without compromising the on going trend.I definitely ain’t need that unnecessary attention or those eye balls revolving around and scanning my whole body so to avoid all those things to some extant wear something which is not tacky gives you the right amount of comfort which is needed to be on the streets also helps you to beat the scorching heat. If you ask me I’ll say to stay calm on Indian streets never go for too short or skinny clothes please don’t ask why because its really hard to explain but trust me if you follow what I just said it’ll help you ace that streetstyle without getting shaky. Go for a short dress or a shift dress if you love wearing skirts like me than you can definitely wear one but don’t go for minis keeping that aside yet you have lot to choose from like ruffle is very in now go for a ruffle skirt or a wrap one as it’s summer so get yourself a beautiful floral or tropical print skirt trust me you’ll be the next streetstyle star or you can opt for a skirt like I’m wearing it’s maxi,wrap, floral and ruffle skirt all in one so just perfect for Indian streets team it up with a blouse of your choice or you can throw a tee like I did as it’s too hot outside and nothing gives comfort more than a white tee. For more trends please read my post on trends to catch up in 2018 you’ll get everything you are looking for.
2) Give yourself a good pair of footgear:-
You are on Indian streets so nowhere you can afford to walk past with a pair of stilleto or a block heel for that matte, in that case wear sneakers or a chic pair of summer flat, wearing dresses or skirts with heels are the cliche of the century rather a sportshoe or a daddy shoe(trending right now) is the new in.
3) Don’t leave your place without a tote:-
During summer it’s so hard to walk without water also our summer make-up needs touch ups as it’s needless to say how pathetic Indian summer days are so to carry everything a properr bag is required only a cool tote can help us out in this situation as totes are in now and every other fashion IT girl is carrying one you can go for net bags (as I m carrying one right in the pictures) it’s trending right now otherwise get yourself a chic straw bag or a basket tote bag if you are into trends as I’m. Don’t forget to carry summer essentials like face wipes, face powder, a bottle of water, umbrella and also a bottle of perfume you know how it smells in summer.
4)Solve the hair trouble:-
I know I can’t tie my hair properly so I keep it open all the time also it makes me look more attractive nevertheless summer days are unbearable with your long hair hanging down your shoulder so if you are hopping on the streets with long hair I suggest to secure it with chrunchies or throw a nice bun, lucky are those with short hair.
5)Accessorize, accessorize and accessorize :-
Couldn’t tress enough on accessories as no style is complete without proper accessories so how can a streetstyle be! Hat and a cool pair of sunglass are must have summer accessories and never leave your place without these two things make your streetstyle even more effortless with beautiful neckpieces, finger rings and earrings also bracelets are very in now, I like to keep it hassle free so a wrist watch is all for me. Always remember the right amount of accessories have the immense capacity to change an ordinary look into extraordinary. Don’t believe me! Try for yourself.
I hope this steps will help you to get the “streetstyle diva look” that you are looking for also one last thing doesn’t matter what you are wearing if you are doing it with confidence. I don’t like to contradict myself yet it’s always upto you. We know how the situation is becoming here in India with every passing day even I feel scared sometimes when I listen to those spine-chilling rape cases we can’t change them overnight but can keep ourself safe I never miss that point when after every heinous crime against women people pick up their best part “What she was wearing” Remember prevention is always better than cure and trust me I live by this rule.
