The Street Style Silhouette You Need To Try Now

Create this ultra-chic look in 3 easy steps

We’ve been noticing a recent street style trend that always looks chic, and it doesn’t necessarily involve a designer label. Forget about what you’ve heard about proportions for a minute and open up your mind to a new look - the straight silhouette. Here’s how you get it: layer a loose, long sweater or thick top over a midi skirt or dress, add a pair of heels and voila. It’s exceptionally easy and ever-so-chic. Your proportions may look slightly out of whack, but a great pair of heels will take the look from sloppy to sophisticated in a matter of seconds. Take a page from the street style handbook and try out the slouchy-cool look with our editors’ favorite pairings below!
