7 Important Fashion Tips You Can Only Learn From Street Style

Let us fill you in on a little secret: As much as we love celebrity style, when we’re looking for outside-the-box tips and tricks to step up our style game every now and then, there’s no better place to look to for inspiration than the streets. That’s because unlike celebs, street style stars have the freedom to try things that wouldn’t necessarily translate on the very public and highly scrutinised red carpet. Whether it’s a new way to wear your typically at-home PJs, a standout sneaker styling trick, or a T-shirt–and-dress combo that will help you get the most use out of your fun party pieces, street style is chock-full of creative ideas. So today, we’ve rounded up seven of our favourites for you to try too—along with the tips to learn from them.

Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2024, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch Summer House.
