In the last few years, streetwear has been one of the most popular movements in fashion. And that’s great news for the girls who had enough of mainstream fashion and want to experiment with bolder and more urban clothing. But since street style is constantly evolving, it can be hard to keep up with the latest trends. To help you stay fashionably cool even well into 2019, here are the most popular streetwear trends at the moment.
Currently, womens street clothing draws its biggest inspiration from ’90s styles. And the ’90s were all about wide legged, bell-bottom pants. So, hide your skinny jeans in the back of the closet where they can wait for better days. Instead, go for pants and jeans with a more relaxed fit, with a high or medium waistline and a low crotch. In general, the baggier the pants, the better. There are many ways you can make wide pants work – pair them with a crop top, tuck a shirt inside them, or put on a sweater for colder days. You can also try to accentuate your waist with a statement belt for a more balanced look.
Now that temperatures are dropping, the best way to make a fashion statement on the streets is by putting on a bold jacket. And currently, puffer jackets are a big trend in womens street clothing. But not just any puffer jackets. Oversized designs in a bold colour like bright red or green are all the rage. You can pair them with jeans for a casual day outfit, or with a leather mini skirt for a sexy evening look.
Street style has always been about opposites. So, with sleek, minimalist designs dominating the mainstream sneaker market, it only made sense that street style fashionistas will rebel with chunky, thick-soled sneakers. With popular street style brands such as Balenciaga coming up with their own designs, chunky dad sneakers are the biggest trend in footwear currently. With the added height these sneakers provide, you can rock mini skirts, jeans, short pants, and oversized dresses with ease.
Animal prints have always been a big inspiration in high fashion. But lately, they are also enjoying their moment in streetwear. It seems as though every urban girl now owns a piece of clothing with a leopard, snake or zebra print, whether it’s a slip dress, a skirt or a spotted faux fur jacket. However, the biggest surprise is animal prints in unexpected colours, such as baby pink or neon yellow.
