With it just having been New York Fashion Week, street style is on my mind! The NYC street style is always such a focus at this time of year. It's amazing because that is really the time where creatives can explore new looks and styles. Pretty much anything goes with street style, as long as it's worn with confidence! The funkier, the better.

For me personally, I like to explore new styles but 'grunge' isn't exactly my forte. So I decided to flaunt a street style that's a little more me. For those of you that prefer a more classic style, here's my tips on How to Make Street Style Chic!

How to Make Street Style Chic

Step 1- Start with a typical street style piece, like a graphic tee or combat boots.

Step 2- Pair it with your standard classics, like a solid-color blazer and simple pointed-toe heels.

Step 3- Add some luxe to your look! For my look, I chose chunky gold jewelry and a neutral color block handbag with snakeskin accents.

Voila!

So, I think the shirt says it all- I am not a morning person! I don't think I'll ever get used to waking up early. I first saw a graphic tee with this 'I'm allergic to mornings' phrase worn by Emily on Pretty Little Liars (Worn on TV, I'm Allergic to Mornings Tee). I know I am constantly talking about this show, but seriously, the fashion is incredible. Sometimes their fashion is affordable so I looked up where the shirt was from, but it was sold out. I took to the internet, thinking I could design my own version and found one already made on Zazzle. It was only $30 and came in 39 different colors. I chose 'summer peach.'  

The quality is decent, but the sizing runs very small. I'm usually a size small and I got a large to play it safe. It's just baggy enough to be comfortable!

Let Your Hair Be Your Accessory

Accessories are known to be anything from jewelry to handbags and shoes; really anything that serves as an accent to a look. But hair?  A fancy or intricate hair 'do can easily steal the show! This is because anyone can buy an accessory but a braid, even if it's simple to do, tends to be a 'wow' factor because it looks complicated.

I'm a huge fan of braids! I don't wear them as much these days, but it was once my trademark look. So for this post, I decided to go back to the basics as far as my look goes and focus on the hair.

Once you can do a basic french braid, you can really do any type of braid. Or at least that's what I think! I do anything from a fishtail to a wrap-around french braid and even a 5-strand braid. This particular braid is what I call an infinity braid. I call it that because it seems to just go on forever! All of my hair is swept to one side and french braided from the top of my head all the way down to the ends of my hair. This time I just did a regular french braid, but I usually go a french braid into a 5-strand braid. Who else loves braids?
