When for you the best of Fashion Week is the street style

In my opinion, the best of Fashion Week were the street style looks.

Of course, I am excited about learning about the new trends. However, often most of them are frustrating as they are just impractical to pull off. Just think about off-shoulder looks for winter. Great style and a go-to trend when you live in the Tropics or dress for subtropical climate. But even in Northern California, this trend is at the edge to guarantee a cold.

The bell-sleeves? Don’t get me started on them! Not only that I don’t like their look – it reminds me of Popeye the sailor – they are aweful when you have to drive, or eat. My doctoral gown has them. These bell sleeves scavenge everything from the table when you don’t pay attention to them!

Take inspirations from the sidewalk

Don’t you think that the best about fashion week is the street style? I love browsing the street style that accompanies fashion week. I have an entire Pinterest board devoted to Street Style. However, my love for street style doesn’t stop there. I love to don the street style look myself.

How I wear my Fairbanks Street Style

In this look, I built on the good girl, bad girl idea. For me pleated skirts are very classic and when pleated like this silver skirt they have a very conservative vibe. The silver color keeps the skirt from looking old-fashioned. Pairing the good girls proper classic pleated skirt with the bad girl’s black motorcycle leather jacket adds tension to the look. Socks in sandals is a Euro Chic no-no, but a street style do. Normcore anyone! Sure! The Nike socks give the lace-up fall sandals the look of booties and the combined effect is far from the no-no look of sandals with socks.

Best street style accessories

A pearl necklace would be overkill on the good-bad front. Street style calls for individuality. Thus, DIY accessories can go a long way. I added a silver pendant that I made in a college recreational class. Back then, I drilled holes in a silver oblong metal, hammered the metal to an oblong cookie form, and filed off the edges. I soldered another piece of metal to the back as an eyelet for a leather or rubber band to carry the pendant. The belt is made from a piece of silver metal in which I drilled little dots. I cut a loop to attach the buckle to the belt. The material of the belt is actually a leather shoe sole. I asked a cobbler to sew on a piece of pony hair leather to hold the buckle. I filed a piece of 0.16 inch (0.4 cm) thick wire, 0.4 inch (1 cm) long wire to the form of a mushroom and soldered it onto the back of the buckle. On the opposite side of the belt, the cobbler punched holes for closure. Learn more on how to have street style in the guide at the link.
