Chic Finds - Street Fashion Stores

April 24, 2012: Although my personal is Classy I do enjoy adding an interesting, edgy conversation piece every now and then. This is a typical "street style" way of putting together an outfit and it really adds to the unexpected that makes an outfit look oh-so-fresh and chic.

So what exactly is street fashion?


Street style is more of way of dressing. It’s eclectic, casual and self-expressive. It’s a mix of everything – but most importantly, it comes from the fashionistas you see on the street, and not from fashion editors, runways and celebrities!

In general, there are no specific rules and guidelines in street fashion - other than wearing what you feel like wearing and what reflects your mood and personality. It’s all about feeling good and being authentic :-) You can get a taste of" street talents” by browsing through social fashion sites such as lookbook.nu and chictopia.com.

So if you’re looking for online shopping sites where they focus on clothes and fashion that caters to street fashionistas then check out this list of my personal favorites:

Note: One of the downsides to the (majority of) street fashion stores (specifically ROMWE and Yes Style) is the lack of sizes – a lot of the items are made in Asia and best suited for average Asian female sizes which is often a size 2 or 4. Having lived in Seoul, South Korea for a year and buying from Korean online fashion stores since the age of 21, I can attest to their clothing sizes and not least, their skinny body figures!

On the bright side, the garments are Free Size which means that they can be adjusted into a size 6 or 8. Oh, and they love oversized fashion - so you'll find plenty of casual, boxy sweaters that fit most sizes. But if you want to get the most out of your money and really save time then dedicate some time taking note of your body measurements.
