My idea of "street" or "urban" style is looking and feeling like an all-time baddie. But let's be real, we don't all feel comfortable strutting around in a bra, fishnets and some heavily distressed jeans. Leave that stuff to Rihanna and the Hadid sisters. I want to make this Street styled look book wearable.
Look how I can bend my leg like that! The only reason I can even do those poses is also the NUMBER ONE reason I love the Street styled look: SWEATPANTS. Sweatpants are a staple in this style and OMFG--i have never been so comfy while looking so fly.
Fishnets are another staple of the Street style. Add in a distressed or band or graphic tee to finish it off. I tucked this @diss.dressed 'Lagerfeld' t-shirt upwards to make it look shorter and show off the fishnets.
The 'Kim K' fishnets and 'Lagerfeld' Tee can be bought here: @diss.dressed

The next few looks are all made up of the same formula: Sweater Tunic + Jacket + Boots = Baddie.
This is a distressed men's sweater from Forever 21 with a Led Zeppelin long line bomber jacket (also from Forever 21). I added a pair of lavender pointed booties for a 'Jenny from the Block' vibe. I I wore hooped earrings from Alexis Bittar's Miss Havisham Collection in gunmetal.
These boots give me LIFE! These lace-up OTK boots are from Forever 21 and they zip from the back and just make every. damn. outfit. AH-MAZING!
Satin bombers have been a HUGE trend in the last few years and I think with the right bomber you can wear it with anything. This Tiger bomber is also from Forever 21.
The distressed sweater dress (again), is a trend I wasn't too fond of, because I was like, "um...holes and in Canada equals, you are gonna freeze your lady balls off." BUT I actually really liked the look. There is something very urban, very sexy, very...Yeezy, (I dare say?) about the distressed look, that I am actually very attracted to. This distressed sweater is from Fashion Nova.
The criss-cross sweater is from Fashion Nova and so are the peep-toed OTK boots.
The bodysuit. I wear this thing going grocery shopping looking FLY as hell! I obviously skip the heels and opt for sneakers but heels add a je ne sais quoi to the look. The heels are the 'Cinderella' slipper from Fashion Nova. I would also suggest investing in a pair of transparent heels like this because they LITERALLY go with everything.
This camel coloured bodysuit is beyond comfortable and you can wear it off the shoulder too. I also prefer to wear a bra underneath this but I chose a bra that can be shown off. I chose a Canadian brand called, Untitled&Co that made this bra I am wearing underneath.
I think the Street and Urban looks have become so popular lately and I know why, because now that I've tried it, it's so intriguing. It's a mix of many different decades and styles mashed together. There is gunge, glitz and Kardashian all mixed into one style. It's comfortable, alluring and interesting with everything mixed onto one person. Get inspired and try out some of these looks--who knows, you might fall in love with them.
