In 2005, there was a huge push toward street style in the fashion community. This is thanks, in large part, to Scott Schuman who launched his blog, The Sartorialist in 2005 after leaving a fashion sales position in New York City. Schuman took to the streets of the Big Apple and began snapping photos of stylish people on the street. This ignited such a fire on the internet that hundreds of like-minded individuals from Copenhagen to Tokyo to Miami also started blogs focused on street style.
Street style blogs are a great way to get fashion inspiration. Instead of flipping through a magazine and seeing a perfect looking model wearing only clothes that advertisers dictated, you get to see real people wearing clothes that have real personality; clothes they made, thrift store clothes, vintage pieces, or high end items. It’s the personal touch, the ability to see how stylish people put their looks together in real time, that makes street style so beloved.
When combing the street style blogs this month, we noticed a reoccurring look that we loved: oversized outerwear paired with tights/leggings and chunky shoes. This is a cozy winter look that remains flawlessly stylish throughout the years. Check out some of our favorite looks (and maybe you’ll get some wardrobe inspiration!):
