Best street style outfits 2020

Crayon cool

There’s nothing like a top-to-toe tonal outfit to brighten up any day. Instead of beige and cream shades, influencer Chriselle Lim goes for standout red. Waistcoats are also having a moment for spring/summer and this is the perfect example of how to wear them, without looking like a page boy. 

If you don’t follow Chriselle on Instagram we highly recommend – TikTok videos with her kids and seriously glamorous outfits will brighten up your day even further. 

Pyjama shirt chic

Wearing your pyjamas outside has been given the seal of approval. Styling a Sleeper PJ top as a blouse with jeans is now all we want to wear.

Not just for dads – inject some extra fun into the look with socks and sandals.

Totally tonal

White jeans just scream spring and we’re happy to welcome them back into our wardrobes. There’s something about teaming a white pair with cream separates that makes the fresh denim look even better.

Python print boots will be staying firmly on everyone’s feet for the foreseeable, so it isn’t too late to invest.

Animal instinct

The whole animal kingdom is basically inspiring outfits everywhere this season but it’s zebra that’s taking centre stage. Spotted at the likes of Tod’s, influencers including Caroline Daur have already been wearing the printed coat. 

Note: keep the rest of the outfit monochrome for the win. 

Print clash

Clashing and matching your favourite pieces is the way to have fun with your wardrobe. Think band tees, animal prints and statement accessories. 

Top off the look with a dreamy ‘look at me’ coat that will make an impact season after season and you can’t go wrong.

Matchy-matchy

Double the joy. Twins Ami and Aya Amiaya are known for their statement outfits (and hair) and it’s the feel-good looks we need right now. 

Layer a sheer trench coat over a colour-pop slip dress to recreate the look.

70s retro

Channeling this season’s key 70s trend, a printed floated maxi dress teamed with super-size square sunnies and chic accessories is pure genius. 

Seen at the likes of Louis Vuitton and Paco Rabanne, it’s the psychedelic trend to try out, pronto. 

Pastel perfection

Suit up, look sharp. Colourful denim is a simple way wear a two-piece for new season. Keep it off-duty by putting your best foot forward in a pair of Prada kicks and a plain T-shirt for spring. 

Colour block cover-up

While we’re still having to wear a jacket, it might as well be one that will get you noticed. This Prada colour block style will liven up any outfit. 

Longer length shorts will be key this season, team with chunky kicks for a fresh new spin.
