This Is How You Nail Street Style, Every Single Time

Every now and then, we see those truly unique outfits that capture our attention—and lately, the streets of Sydney have been delivering the goods. We spotted some bold fashion moments during Fashion Week Australia, and they were the boundary-pushing looks that inspired us to review our own wardrobes—aka the perfect excuse to indulge in a little more retail therapy.

Style, at its true core, represents the essence and strength of a modern woman—perhaps it’s captured when she puts a feminine spin on a traditional power suit, or it could be when adorned in stunning pieces from the new Tiffany HardWear collection. Whatever it is, there’s nothing more special than that perfect outfit that ignites the feeling of euphoria—the moment of bliss when you’re absolutely head over heels with what you’re wearing. Scroll down to see the lessons that we learnt during Fashion Week Australia, and adopt them yourself everyday.

Lesson One: Sneakers Will Always Be Cool

Whether you decide on a designer pair or cult classics like a pair of trusty Converse, sneakers will always make you feel cool (and comfortable!).

Lesson Two: Don’t Underestimate the Power of Simplicity

It's easy to be overwhelmed for choice but sometimes when you go back to basics, magic really happens—especially if you get creative with cuts and fabrics. 

Lesson Three: Inject Colour Into Your Monochrome

It's easy to always rely on a black and white uniform, but be daring and add a splash of colour. 

Lesson Four: Wear Your Heart on Your Sleeve

We saw a lot of sleeve action on the streets of Fashion Week, and this level of detail will add an instant lift of sophistication. 

Lesson Five: Mix Fabrics and Textures

If you decide to wear just one colour, mix it up with texture as it photographs well and makes your outfit more interesting. Faux fur, silk, leather... Hello, lover!

Lesson Six: Add More Belts to Your Collection

You can never have too many belts. Finding a wide belt (such as above) means you can not only cinch in your waist, but you can also add a touch of cool to the most classic outfit. 

Lesson Seven: Make Beige Your Friend

Scrap that mentality that beige is boring because when it's done right, it's flawless. If you stick to one tone of beige, be sure to invest in quality fabrics and tailored pieces. 

Lesson Eight: Ankle Boots Are Your Go-To Footwear

If you're wearing a skirt or a pair of pants, ankle boots will never fail you. Like Eleanor Pendleton's booties? Shop the Tony Bianco Diddy Boot ($219) to achieve the same look. 

Lesson Nine: Suit Up in Velvet for Femininity

There's nothing more empowering than putting on a suit that makes you feel like a confident woman. If you want to step out of the traditional black attire, mix it up with velvet fabric for an ultra feminine vibe. 

Lesson Ten: Do Invest in Quality Accessories

They may be small and delicate but accessories are the finishing touches that can feel like the heart and soul of your entire look. To achieve a look of feminine meets edgy, try the new Tiffany & Co HardWear collection
