Street Style: The Best Looks from Around the World


Finding Inspiration from Fashion Worldwide

Street style has its roots in the city, with every country, capital, and culture you can think of having its own unique style. And thanks to the prevalence of street style photography and the internet, we now more than ever have easier and more comprehensive access to fashion content worldwide, getting inspiration from anywhere with just a quick click.

With today’s street fashion becoming near-universal and seeing so many different influences on major events like Fashion Week, you can create your own collection of fashion influences from London to Italy and the United States to Japan. Here’s some trendy fashion inspiration from city streets around the globe.

Why is Street Fashion So Popular?

Street-style fashion is popular worldwide because of its grassroots nature. Street style is organic, unique, and accessible, which allows people from all walks of life to participate in influencing the trends we end up seeing in magazines, social media, and Fashion Week.

Street styles from around the globe are what make the modern catwalks of Fashion Week, and no longer the other way around. Whether you see it in magazines or social media, street-style fashion is a fantastic way to express individualism or love for a specific kind of style or association with a subculture.

How Do You Develop Street Style?

Street style is rooted in individuality, so it really depends on what fashion items you love to dress in, what fashion inspires you, and what you want to express with your clothing. Whether you like to get dressed in a t-shirt and jeans or a suit when you walk about the city, the way you carry your individual style and the details you put into it is what makes street style fashion and could become what’s popular over time and as every year passes.

Essentially, street style doesn’t have any one look and can be an amalgamation of different fashion influences, so developing street style can also simply mean finding what fashion styles you love, incorporating them into your daily clothing, and wearing them out for the world to see.

How Do You Dress for Street Fashion?

Perhaps the most important thing about street style is that while it is a creative way to express yourself and can even be found on the catwalks of Fashion Week, the items you put on should still be functional and easier to wear every day and every season.

From summer to winter, there are so many different ways you can add a bit of uniqueness and even trendiness to your street style while still finding clothing that suits your body and taste. Whether you like adding colours and patterns or different layers and textures to your look, the options you can utilise to make your street style distinct are so varied. 

What Trends are Coming Back?

While street style is for the most part free to interpret, trends have been around for years and are what control the styles we see. No matter what style you’re into, fashion throughout the decades often has a uniform look or theme if you look closely. 

In more recent years, the 20-year trend cycle has shown us how different fashion trends come in and out of style, with fashion often taking inspiration from over two decades prior.

While the internet has helped modern fashion become more diverse, with people in London taking inspiration from the opposite side of the world and vice versa and various popular fashions from various decades popping up in street style, we’ve been seeing a major resurgence in Y2K fashion.

What is the Y2K Fashion Trend?

The Y2K fashion trend takes inspiration from the late 90s and early 2000s, merging pop culture with fashion while being maximalist at the same time. The trend is characterised by clothing items like low-rise bottoms, crop tops, bedazzled clothing, chunky footwear, and even more.

While the aesthetic may seem loud and excessive to those with a classic or minimalist style, it’s certainly a fun and eye-catching way to style your everyday wear.

Final Note

From Fashion Week to everyday, street style is such a good and fun way to express your creativity and individuality while taking inspiration from trending items. We love the fact that even tho different fashion pieces can be widely worn, people can still make them their own and incorporate them into their own individual street styles.

No matter what you like or where you’re from, you can develop your own distinctive street-style fashion.
