This December 8, Who What Wear will present its second annual Street Style Awards, honoring the tastemakers and industry insiders whose style sets the tone and influences the world of fashion today. To tide you over until then, we’re celebrating 2016’s best street style with curated features like this one. Make sure to check back December 8 for the announcement of all our honorees!
While we’re constantly calling out street style outfits and moments that catch our attention, seeing as 2016 is quickly coming to a close and we’ve entered the time for reflection, today we thought we’d round up the ones that stood above the rest this year. Call it a trip down memory lane, if you will. With some standout snaps coming from the F/W 16 shows at the beginning of the year, others from this most recent, S/S 17 shows, and a few more that were sprinkled in between, at the very least we know you’re going to enjoy the re-seeing looks as much as we did—and you may even shop them.
